Formed in the early 1970’s, through 4 decades of adversity and triumph, Pentagram has become a legendary international act and has firmly stamped their name in the heavy metal history books, with tours planned throughout North America and Europe during 2015 promoting their latest album of electrifying heavy metal, ‘Curious Volume’, which was released late 2015 on Peaceville.
Although always a cult act with a strong and dedicated worldwide fanbase, Pentagram had enjoyed a recent surge in interest due in part to the fly-on-the-wall 2011 documentary, ‘Last Days Here’.
The documentary follows the life, trials & tribulations of Bobby Liebling, giving an insight into the turmoil of a troubled rock personality across this feature-length production, with this DVD edition featuring bonus deleted scenes plus this version comes with 45 minutes of extras including interviews with Matt Pike, Witchcraft, & Hank III, among others.
The film has so far gained international recognition; travelling the worldwide film festival circuit where it won several awards including “Best Music Documentary” at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam along with a multitude of other accolades.

Pentagram is a American heavy metal band from Virginia, most famous as one of the pioneers of doom metal. The band was prolific in the underground scene of the 1970s, producing many demos and rehearsal tapes, but did not release a full-length album until reforming in the early 1980s with an almost completely new lineup. Throughout the band’s history the only constant member has been vocalist Bobby Liebling. The revolving lineup of Pentagram has featured many well respected musicians in the local doom metal scene, with members spending time in other acts such as Raven, The Obsessed, Place of Skulls, Internal Void, Spirit Caravan, among many others.
