Perhaps the best album of “Pentagram” – quite unexpectedly shows that their musical palette has many colours, and is not monochromatic. The band is still unashamedly dragging the shoes of “Black Sabbath” and the overall tempo of the album is following the walk of arthritic dinosaur (“Swans” could have been another source of inspiration – Children of God/World of Skin, but whether we’re talking doom or black metal, it’s very good – the vocals might be not Ozzy, but still these are vocals, and not brainless growling.

BEST PENTAGRAM ALBUM!!!!!
This is darker than any ”black metal” cd you could come up with!!
This is also a PERSONAL FAVE of mine!!
This cd is the heaviest in their line-up but can sound a bit off in the recording. Again like their other albums they are good with guitars, drums, and bass the vocals can be understood. Heavy music while preaching is what I refer the group name as.
Pentagram is a truly awesome band in every sense, it takes you right back to the beginnings of Sabbath with a more modern edge. Great riffs, great vox, awesome songs and great musicianship.
