Cult rock legend Bobby Liebling has been churning out genre-defining hard rock for over 36 years as the lead singer of the band Pentagram. Various acts of self-destruction, multiple band break-ups, and botched record deals have condemned his music to obscurity. Frozen for decades in his parents' basement, Bobby is finally discovered by the heavy metal underground. With the help of Sean 'Pellet' Pelletier, his friend and manager, Bobby struggles to overcome his demons. Directed by Don Argott and Demian Fenton (“Rock School, “The Art of the Steal”), LAST DAYS HERE chronicles the triumphs and downfalls of this underground icon who finds himself at the crossroads of life and death.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Unexpectedly flouting its doomy title, "Last Days Here" invests the standard, washed-up rock-star tale with surprising sweetness.
Fresh: A surprise back-from-the-brink redemption proves reliably engaging in rock-doc Last Days Here.
Fresh: A deft and weirdly affecting portrait of how a drug-addicted man-child knocking on death's door manages an astonishing resurgence.
An engrossing, endearing, doc on an unknown American music legend and a true believer.

"’Last Days Here’ is not the documentary viewers expect to see, but it is the documentary they will be glad they saw.” -Examiner
"Thoroughly engrossing. 'Last Days Here' is a wild, satisfying ride, a real story of love, friendship, and self-acceptance beneath the tantalizing surface of sex, drugs and rock n' roll" - Baltimore City Paper
“Ingenious and suspenseful…to call ‘Last Days Here’ a mere music documentary is like saying Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’ is a pretty tune.”
- Filmmaker Magazine
“An Intense documentary, it blew us all away!”
- Eddie Trunk “That Metal Show” VH-1
They should have been more Successful
This movie may me download songs from this band . Songs Forever my Queen, Lazylady and Last Days here are right up there with the stuff Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath put out in that era.
The Devil & Germantown
It plays out like a lot of rock documentaries about closet & basement rockers who were under appreciated, under developed and an underground influence to many - like the documentary "The Devil & Daniel Johnston". But unlike other "should've" "would've" "could've" documented rock tragedies, the intense and tense situations of a volatile junkie musician and a music junkie's dragon-chasing determination to see the band put back together and put out a new album is as emotional, as suspenseful, appropriately timed & paced and as poetic as any well written drama. It kept me interested, kept me rooting and kept me cautiously hopeful until the very end. And even though I was personally skeptical, critical and judgmental of all the key player's agenda and personal reasons for being apart of this rockers life, career and business, in the end I was grateful - that for whatever reason- they made it happen and had the patience to see this movie through, to see Bobby through and to see the music through.
