Descendants of Crom is a heavy metal/doom metal festival in Pittsburgh, starting in 2017. It is billed as a gathering of Rock, Doom, Sludge, and Metal; an all-day fest with two stages fueled by riffs created by the riddle of steel. The festival is sponsored by Full Pint Brewing Company, Black Anvil Coffeehouse, Hellmistress Records, Twin Earth, RiffRelevant and The Obelisk.


The 2017 edition of Descendants of Crom was held at Cattivo in Pittsburgh on 30 September 2017. Notably, the set by Penance is a special reunion set featuring the lineup on the Alpha and Omega album (Butch Balich, Mike Smail, Terry Weston, Matt Tuite, Ron Leard and Mary Bielich.). On 29 September 2017 an Acoustic pre-fest would be hosted at Full Pint Wild Side Pub, with performances by JakeTheHawk, MotoMeter, The Long Hunt, Solarburn and Holy Rivals.[1]
