Album Review

Black Sabbath are usually heralded as the creator of "doom metal," yet Ozzy and company certainly had their allies early on, who also contributed to the cause — especially Virginia's own Pentagram. Despite being long admired by the metal underground, Pentagram never recorded for a major label, and never recorded a full-length release during their peak '70s period. But the good folks at Relapse assembled a fine compilation, First Daze Here: The Vintage Collection, in 2002, and four years later issued a follow-up double-disc set, First Daze Here Too: The Vintage Collection. All of the material on First Daze Here Too comes from the '70s — the seven-track first disc focuses on demos, rehearsals, and a recording session circa 1974 and 1976, while the 15-track second disc is comprised strictly of rehearsal tapes from 1972 and 1974. Although nothing here scales the same heights as say, "Iron Man" or "Sweet Leaf," there are plenty of riff-heavy nuggets that will surely appeal to fans of retro metal, including "When the Screams Come" and "Much Too Young to Know." That said, several tracks come close to "bar band territory," especially "Teaser" and a cover of the Stones' "Under My Thumb." With only odds and ends left behind by the band, First Daze Here Too: The Vintage Collection is a solid follow-up purchase for bell-bottomed headbangers who bought the first set.

Quality dark music

I have been doing some heavy duty research in the roots of the darker side of Heavy Metal music. Its just flat amazing how good their music is. Sad is to say like the other two reviewers, todays musicians are out of the ball park in terms of making music. It would be nice to see a new band todays take Pentagram or others like Blood Farmers (another one of my discoveries) as an influence and bring back the missing "Quality" to todays music. Shame on Corporate bands and corporate producers. Might as well make all the bands play exactly the same thing. If you are reading this review, I have a question for you. When was the last time recently that you found quality music in store from a modern (I mean today's) supposed band?

They Did It Again!!!

Wow,all I can say is..Vince McAllister,Guitar God! WORSHIP!!

New PentaFan!

Justin. I know your review is 6 years old now, but check out The Sword!! I just watched the Doc movie about this gem of a metal band,(Last Days Here). It blew me away, that I never heard their music before. Really GOOD!


Formed: 1971 in Woodbridge, VA

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

One of the most enduring and influential underground bands in heavy metal history, Pentagram's career was almost 15 years old by the time they finally managed to record their first album. Though invariably led by mysterious frontman Bobby Liebling, the band's volatile membership made it difficult to maintain any kind of momentum and kept them confined to metal's outer fringes. But interest in Pentagram's convoluted history continues to grow and their crucial contributions to the development of heavy...
