I must say that these guys sound more like Black Sabbath than Black Sabbath does! They’ve taken a genre started by Sabbath and run with it. The vocals are like what Ozzy might have done if he had of stayed on track with Sabbath in the seventies. The guitar playing is not quite as bluesy as Iommi, but is very heavy and still good nonetheless. This is a great representation of the Doom genre. The CD booklet has an incomprehensible ramble by Mr. Liebling, but I guess that fits with the whole concept. The photos are great too. I recommend it.

Black Sabbath would be proud of this band. They sound great, awesome 70’s style metal played to perfection.
This is a must own for all fans of Metal and DOOM! Pentagram are the among the greatest DOOm bands of all time. If Sabbath are the fore fathers then Pentagram are the sons.
This band, from what I have heard so far, is very much Sabbath-sounding, though by listening to a doom metal band you would expect it to be so. I find it easy to listen to without much “getting-accustomed” to it, as the vocalist, with all honesty, sounds uncannily like Gene Simmons of KISS to me sometimes, and at other times he shows his Ozzyisms. This is very enjoyable metal that would indeed do honor to Black Sabbath, and fans of that band (meaning anybody who listens to heavy metal, as that this is the genre Black Sabbath created after all.. ) would like this one.
This may be the best doom metal record of all time and one of the top 5 metal albums of all time. Just like Slayer Reign in Blood is the best in its genre and every metal fan should own it, this is the best in the doom genre. It is hard to believe that when most of the metal world were busy trying to look like women and shaking their @ss, metal this heavy was being created and very few people noticed.
