Descendants of Crom Festival-Cattivo-Pittsburgh, PA September 30, 2017

On Saturday September 30, 2017 at 3:00 PM EST all hell will break loose on the City of Pittsburgh, PA. An event of epic proportions, 17 killer Stoner Rock/Doom/Metal bands are set to ignite the two stages of Cattivo in the Lawrenceville section of the city. This festival is the first of its kind for Pittsburgh and I say it is about damn time! Event organizer Shy Kennedy (Horehound/Blackseed Records) has excelled at putting together such a fine collection of bands, especially by nabbing Pittsburgh-based doom legends Penance (Alpha & Omega lineup). Growing up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh I am a little giddy about this festival. From the scorching NWOBHW sounds of Pittsburgh's own Lady Beast to the instrumental Doomy Jazz of  Philly's Stinking Lizaveta, there is enough to appease the tastes of everyone attending. 

For the overzealous, there will be an acoustic pre-fest at the Full Pint Wild Side Pub, click here for more info.

Lineup:

CANT
MONOLITH WIELDER
LADY BEAST
ENHAILER
ARCHARUS
HORSEBURNER
WASTED THEORY
FOGHOUND
EYE
BRIMSTONE COVEN
SOLACE
THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN
CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC
VALKYRIE
EARTHRIDE
STINKING LIZAVETA
PENANCE (Alpha & Omega lineup)

Swamp Ritual-Sunchaser

The mighty Swamp Ritual hail from Missoula Mt. (as does yours truly), so I was more then pleased to see this 5 song gem of fuzzed out heaviness in my emails. Being a fan of the loud bass and drum duo since early 90's acts like Godheadsilo and later acts like Big business and Year of the Cobra, Sunchaser fits right in holding their own unique sound.. let the tripped out psychedelic 13 min Bearded Dragon take you for a little ride and you'll know what I mean.
As I've stated here before I like things loud and heavy and Swamp Ritual are just that, as well as mixing tempo's with catchy foot stomping anthemic vox to straight no vocal sludge instrumentals.
Catch them on tour 9-21 starting in Portland Oregon through 10-13 with one of my favorite bands Disenchanter.
Buy the tunes with the bandcamp link below, its name your own price.
And if you catch them live buy the merch and support your local venues.
As I just witnessed in San Jose for Epicenter 2017, Heavy Rock is alive and well!
