INDEPENDENCE -- While the Grayson County area regularly receives recognition for its bluegrass and country music, heavy metal rock has a Grayson following also worth noting. That’s according to Dennis Warren, founder of the Grayson County-based band Cult of Dionysis, one of 10 metal bands from across the southeast set to star this week in a two-night Independence concert. The Leprechaun Bash Metal Festival is this Friday and Saturday, March 6 and 7, at VFW Post 7726’s meeting hall and is being billed as the first two-night heavy metal festival ever in Southwest Virginia.
