Three years ago Shy Kennedy decided that Pittsburg needed a DIY fest that would feature some bigger acts yet also some very deserving underground acts. She started Descendants of Crom, sponsored though her own label Blackseed Records. Now, three years later, the fest is going strong. What started out as a 1 day fest is now a 2 full-day fest. Previous acts have included Heavy Temple, Geezer, and Lady Beast. This year, bands like Frayle, Witchkiss, Icarus Witch and Brimstone Coven will be playing and this is just naming a few. It's an orgy of doom and heavy metals finest from the underground and a few classic bands that people know. Pittsburgh has since become a mecca of female produced metal fests (all which are great). From the Metal Immortal Fest to the recent Steel and Bone fest. Each have distinctively different styles but one goal which is to expand the music scene in the city and promote bands that deserve it. I encourage anyone who can to attend this years Decendants of Crom and support. Follow the link below to see the full lineup and purchase tickets.
FESTIVAL ALERT: Descendants of Crom in Pittsburgh. September 20th-22nd
