July 20, 2021 Nick Green
Surly Brewing Company’s Pentagram might just pack a bit too much sour power.

Krieg’s Neill Jameson on the Pentagram Harassment Allegations & Separating Musicians by Gender
June 8, 2016 Neill Jameson
Pentagram‘s Bobby Libeling allegedly recently practiced poor judgement. But his management’s defense of his actions is even worse.

September 15, 2015 Jesse Chase
Just in time for fall: doom over the world… now available in ones and zeros.
For Those About to Squawk: Waldo’s Pecks of the Week
July 31, 2015 Andrew Bonazelli
Well, guys, it’s that time again, as I’m home from my whirlwind press tour, and boy are my wings tired. Here’s all the new releases that are fit (or not) to print.
ROAD REPORT: Kings Destroy Ride the Pentagram Express
November 18, 2014 Shawn Macomber
Brooklyn doom metallers Kings Destroy recently hit the road with Pentagram. Here, in their own words, is what transpired… Chicago, IL (Stephen Murphy, vocals) Well goddamn, it was great to head to Chicago for the first show of the tour with Pentagram, Radio Moscow and Bang, plus Iron Reagan taking the stage before us. We…
Life After Last Days: The Deciblog Interview With Bobby Liebling
March 5, 2014 Justin Norton
The hard road of Pentagram frontman Bobby Liebling, who has fought the real demons of addiction for decades, was well chronicled in the documentary Last Days Here as well as J. Bennett’s May 2011 cover story. While the film had a happy ending everyone knows that after the credits roll life continues. Hollywood doesn’t like…
Decibel’s Top 5 Doom Metal Logos
May 8, 2013 Chris Dick
5. Saint Vitus. Crosses galore on the second Vitus logo. Three of them. For the Trinity perhaps. The original SVS logo only had one. Three’s a crowd, we say. But this logo is boss. Looks a bit cheap and overdone at first blush, but the barbed letters? Could be heavy metal cliché. Nope. Crown of…
STREAMING: Bedemon’s “Lord Of Desolation”
September 26, 2012 Justin Norton
Pentagram frontman Bobby Liebling has received much deserved attention for his comeback from a harrowing addiction and the revival of his musical career, not to mention late in life fatherhood. A few of his former bandmates might not have dealt with the same demons but they’ve had their share of tough times seeing their musical…
STREAMING: Kadavar’s “Creature Of The Demon”
June 20, 2012 Justin Norton
Getting compared to Black Sabbath’s legendary debut is a mixed blessing. Of course, it’s going to stoke interest in your band but is there anyone that can measure up to the album that’s quite literally responsible for everything on this blog and magazine? Berlin, Germany’s Kadavar have elicited those comparisons, at least from the folks…
Exclusive Video Premiere From “Last Days Here”
February 28, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Much of Bobby Liebling’s life seems completely improbable. The Pentagram singer, despite a decades-long battle with drug addiction, is alive today and still performing. And Pentagram’s musical career/trajectory has been even more bizarre. Starting in the early ’70s, the band has experienced tumultuous lineup changes (and break-ups), botched recording deals and enough drama for a…
Exclusive Preview: Pentagram’s “When The Screams Come” DVD
August 15, 2011 Jeanne Fury
You’d think that a band with 40 years under its belt would have figured out the whole commercialism part of the music business by now. Some of the more enterprising elder statesmen have given up on marketing their music — Marky Ramone has his own brand of pasta sauce, and Stephen Pearcy is hawking hot…
Napalm Death flexi spotlight + Shane Embury interviewed
March 22, 2011 Chris Dick
It’s no secret Decibel and Napalm Death aren’t just Facebook friends but bestest pals. We’re the beat to their blast, so to speak. Decibel editor-in-chief Albert Mudrian’s favorite band is, well, Napalm Death. The Brummies (that’d be folk from Birmingham, England) were well chronicled in Mudrian’s Choosing Death book, were cover stars for dB #53,…
STREAMING: Pentagram “Call the Man”
March 7, 2011 Chris Dick
In many ways, the opportunity to stream new music from legendary rockers/proto-metallers Pentagram is both an honor and a surprise. The Virginians, who have been kicking around in some shape or form since the early ’70s, are, to many, on the same level as British gods Black Sabbath or Judas Priest. Sure, the latter have…
Pentagram – “Relentless”
June 13, 2010 J. Bennett
As convoluted back-stories go, it doesn’t get much more tangled than the one behind Pentagram’s Relentless.
