Must Hear: “Forever My Queen”; a short, sharp, proto-doom introduction to true heaviness.
Think Sabbath invented doom metal….think again!
If there was one band that actually deserved to surpass Sabbath‘s world conquering exploits, it was Bobby Liebling and Pentagram. A prolific part of the 70’s underground scene, Pentagram were breaking down boundaries and creating new noise at will. However, when your debut (Pentagram/Relentless) only sees the light of day in the mid 80’s, you’ve not only missed the boat, you’ve voluntarily jumped off the jetty and fed yourself to the circling sharks (a not so subtle music industry metaphor for you there).
Sadly, Pentagram failed to receive the adoration they so richly deserved and with Bobby Liebling falling foul of the law in 2017 (not drugs this time but first-degree assault), their time is highly unlikely to ever come.
