Derkéta


Derkéta is a doom influenced death metal band from Pittsburgh, PA; known to be the first all female death metal band. The name Derkéta was taken from Stygian Mythology; she was the goddess of death of a blood drinking cult. The band was formed by Sharon Bascovsky (vocals & guitars) and Terri Heggen (drums) in late 1988. Mary Bielich assisted on bass in 1991 but nothing permanent to complete a full lineup. In 1991, Terri and Mary left to pursue other musical interests while Sharon continued Derkéta with the help of friends Read more on Last.fm

In 1991, Terri and Mary left to pursue other musical interests while Sharon continued Derkéta with the help of friends, mainly Jim Sadist from NunSlaughter. In 2006 it was decided to reform Derkéta with the original lineup, this time with Robin Mazen on bass and Mary Bielich on second guitar. This takes Derkéta to the present, the first time having a full stable lineup. Currently the band is in the process of recording for the first full length release entitled In Death We Meet, which promises to satisfy long time fans who have waited many years for a Derkéta album.

Rest assured there are no musical changes from the early days of Derkéta as we feel bound to stay true to ourselves and no others. Our musical beliefs are cemented in the early years of death metal and we will never be a slave to trends.* *taken from their official website http://www.derketa.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
