PENTAGRAM Announce US Tour

And it’s the real Pentagram, not that Chilean knockoff brand.

That’s right, the pioneering doomsters/old dudes/all-around weirdos in Pentagram are hitting the road this October to play it low-ish and slow-ish for a few people. Here it is, straight from the horse’s Facebook:

Doom legends, PENTAGRAM, are returning to the road this October and November for select shows in the Midwest and East Coast. Bobby Liebling, Victor Griffin, Greg Turley and Sean Saley will take you through ages and perform their classic, crushing songs in blood, curdling volume. 

I think they meant “blood-curdling volume” and not that they’re playing their songs IN BLOOD with whatever “curdling volume” is. Speaking of blood-curdling volume, did you know that a frighten pig’s scream can be louder than a jet engine during take off? By two whole decibels.

Anyway, those of you who live near the following locations should definitely jump at this chance. The rest of us are doomed to be doomless.

  • Randall Thor

    Pentagram and Blood Ceremony in one night is enough to make me fall to my knees in joy. If only I could be there 🙁

    • Bow to your master for metal is the king.

      • Randall Thor

        Hey bro Exmortus isn’t tech death, you’re not staying tech.

  • Out of boredom, I did one of those “Which genre of metal are you” quizzes earlier today. I got Doom Metal and it said “You should listen to more Pentagram and Candlemass. The weird thing was that I was listening to Pentragram while doing it. SpooOOoooOOky!

    Also, The Met is in Pawtucket, not Providence. Nice try, poster!

  • Tyree

    Two for two in Baltimore. Really hope I can make it to this.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      I’ll be at the Grand Rapids one. And has nobody lost their shit yet for Bang?? How fucking rad. Pentagram and god damn Bang!!!!!

      • Tyree

        Dude, I have to check them out some more. I’ve really never listened to them much. Go ahead and crucify me.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      I was dissapointed that the pentagram documentary didn’t help their career the way the anvil movie boosted anvil’s dead career. That was a heartbreaking story, while the anvil was more of a comedy.

  • Guacamole Jim

    Nobody ever comes to Canada 🙁

    • Surely you are forgetting Burger King! lolburgerkingbuttz

      GL

      • Guacamole Jim

        ROFL lolbuttz

      • Guacamole Jim

        But also if they fuck up my doughnuts I swear I will end them.

    • Tyree
      • Guacamole Jim

        We do have a problem with promoting the horror over the natural beauty.

        (I fucking love that episode)

        • Tyree

          Lol, it’s one of my favorites too.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            could watch repeats of these adult swim shows forever, the 12 minute format is perfect for repeat viewings.

    • The Prophet Mohammed

      You may miss out on shows in Canada, but at least you have universal health care and hockey. That’s about all I ever need.

  • KJM

    Not only does this tour not come to Boston, they add insult to injury(for me) by having Blood Ceremony at the NYC show.

  • Metaphysical Anus

    I like it when good bands come here.

  • Vladimir Putin

    recently been exploring this kind of genre – which album by this band would be a good start?
    btw blood ceremony’s last album is awesome.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      You fucking stay away from Finland!
      PS. Candlemass

      • Vladimir Putin

        who needs ur poor land anyway

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Poor? The baiting is hard!

          • EURO FIGHT!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Russia is not European

          • Eurasia, homey.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            That’s better, sweetie pie.

          • Vladimir Putin

            россия – часть европейской культуры и всегда ею была

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Kind of, yes.

          • Tyree

            I don’t speak freaky deaky Russian. Okay, perv boy?

          • Vladimir Putin

            i don’t speak freaky deaky american

          • Tyree

            😉

      • CyberneticOrganism

        After reading the headlines today, I understand this now.

    • KJM

      ‘The Eldritch Dark’ was my favorite disc of 2013.

    • crazytaco_12

      I think if you’re getting into doom, the absolute first band you have to listen to and get into is Saint Vitus (because I’m sure you’re already into Black Sabbath). If you can’t understand why they kick ass, then it may not ever be a genre you’ll dig, just plain fact. Listen to their album “V”, fucking perfect doom metal.

  • The Satan Ov Nuclear Hell

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY0sRQAyzr8 wow what a nerd, lets stuff him in a locker

    • Varg’s love of papyrus has rubbed off on him. He needs a swirlie, stat.

      • Christian Molenaar

        Not sure if this makes it funnier or sadder: this IS Varg.

        • Dude, he loves his names for the forests and islands, okay?

        • OH SHIT. I blame Norway for their lack of a strong bully culture to whip this nerd in shape years ago.

          • But on the reals, I’d rather have him spend his time making up silly names for trees and rocks than other shit he could get up to.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            We’re you a bully in school?

          • Christian Molenaar

            We called them “the cool kids.”

          • KJM

            I called them “the assholes”

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Cool kids here are the ones getting good grades.

          • Howard Dean

            Finland must be strange (compared to how it is in the U.S.)

          • Metaphysical Anus

            And that’s why I love it here. Yay for the conscription
            (this last part is sarcasm.).

          • KJM

            I was bullied in school. It’s why I still despise the jock mentality to this day.

          • Tyree

            High five bro!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I was bullied too. It was not physical, but verbal.

          • KJM

            I’ve had people call me shit, spit on me, throw shit at me, try to hit me with their cars, sucker punched in the face by complete strangers. I could go on(it gets worse). If all that happened on a particular day was being called “long haired f**got”, it was a good day. Anyone who says being bullied is a good thing because it makes you a stronger person is cordially invited by me to go fuck themselves.

          • Tyree

            That’s horrible! Sorry to hear that.

          • Scrimm

            That sounds like the shit my ex used to do to me.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Bullying stopped for me when I went to the gymnasium ( Finnish high school).

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I hated people who bullied others. I came so close so many times to beating the living shit out of bullies who messed with anyone I knew. I regret not doing it, but then again I had a reputation to uphold.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            fuck man, i hear you on that, i had the same problems, it hasn’t been until i put on some muscle long after i was out of school that i can be the pushy asshole for a change. Now everyone i hate has moved away so i can’t get my revenge. Sometimes i wish i had just taken a steel pipe to some of those fucks. What really bothers me about these kind of assholes is they tell me to get a haircut, i say fuck you, they stop and say, what did you say, i say again fuck you, i don’t back down anymore. Anyways now this coward gets out the truck with 4 other guys because he is mad because i said fuck you to him ? So i take off, i am not seagal, so it turns into a high speed chase. I could have killed a pedestrian easily. If i would have had a gun in the car i would shot those fuckers in the legs or worse. This was a couple of years ago. To me a person who can take a beating is far greater of a man than one who attacks others cowardly usually with back up. I feel for you man.

          • KJM

            Always best to beat a hasty retreat when you’re outnumbered, even the great Bruce Lee would’ve agreed with that I think. Thanks for the kind words.

          • how anyone can make fun of a bro with long hair is beyond me. it’s fuckin’ metal!!!

          • KJM

            The DudeBros of today are merely dumb, goofy brutes who lack social grace. The townie jocks of 80s Somerville were vicious, mean psychos, and half the time they were jacked up on cheap, pure cocaine and beer, even the Jr High kids. WCVB-TV in Boston once aired a prime time TV special on my High School and how bad it was.

          • oh i gotcha. so it wasn’t you at all, it was just the flushable posers around you. sucks.

          • Tyree

            I don’t remember getting bullied. The jocks just kind of ignored me and referred to me as that goth kid. I had friends that got bullied though, luckily I’m 6’3 so they just stuck around me and they were fine. Most of the time the jocks would just insult us an call us names but then again we did the same to them.

          • adam carolla tells it like it is:
            in high school, the jocks just beat each other up, pulled pranks on other jocks. the nerds actually had it worse because the jocks didn’t even know who they were! they didn’t get the validation of being made fun of.

          • is that why you curse us???

          • Perkele

            I curse you guys because I hate/love you.

          • awwwwww, we hate/love you too! just kidding, i could never hate you. you’re like the McNulty of that side of the world.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You, Edward, Tyree, Jim, W. and KJM are the only ones that I love without hate. I love everyone else as well, but there’s a little bit hate in there too.

          • you’re a fickle mistress.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I’m a big boy!

          • nobody forgets Conan. his presence will be known in a few hours..

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Too bad I’m never around when Conan comes. I’m always sleeping at that time. I should go to sleep soon. I have to read and check around 50 essays tomorrow.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m sorry to hear that. I would have accepted all of you here and made sure none of you ever had problems.

          • crazytaco_12

            There’s a great documentary based on male competition semi in relation to bullying, etc called the “Tough Guise” by Jackson Katz. It’s a great movie and I recommend every male (and female if they’re interested) to watch it.

          • I joke about this a lot, but I’ve been a nerd all of my life. Bro confidence is fun though!

          • STAY BRO JOE

            GL

            Oh my. That guy must have been through bad times.

          • more beer

            Taking Respect!

          • Lead singer: no shirt, tats
            Drummer: polo w/ collar

            Win.

          • fuck i love those jalapeno doubles.

          • Howard Dean

            I occupied a strange niche in school (and in life, too, I guess). I had very “nerd” friends, but was also friends with a great deal of unabashed “bullies.” I was a really good student and a good athlete, too, so I sort of fell in (out?) with all the crowds. Too jock to be a nerd, too nerd to be a full-fledged jock. I never got bullied, probably because of my place as a good athlete, and people knew I would fight.

            inb4 “Cool story, BRO” Hahaha

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            My niche was at the very top of the popular people, but I was friends with every clique. I was a nice guy and I was muscular so people wouldn’t dare to fight me or get on my bad side. The one person who got on my bad side was one of the anorexics named Anna. She claimed I was stalking her which was impossible because I was dating you know who at the time. That was the one time I visibly wasn’t the happy person I am. I obliterated her and drove her name so low into the ground no one would go anywhere near her. I still hold that grudge though the depths I went to haunt me to this day.

          • Howard Dean

            Wait, do you mean you were dating Torrie Wilson at the time? Was Anna just jealous that you were amazing at tearing quads or that you live in Poughkeepsie but travel to Lake George sometimes?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            No, I was dating Mel at the time. I think you’re confusing me with my brother Kevin. He’s two years younger than me and he has a natural ability to pick up women. I have that ability, but not at the level he has it.

          • Howard Dean

            Was this before or after Kevin started the NWO with Scott and Hogan?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I was dating Mel in 2004, so that is after the nWo.

          • in high school i was super nerdy and somehow befriended the “skaters” — the kids who smoked on the corner in the morning — they introduced me to Korn, NIN, and Marily Manson … eventually i got into heaver and heavier stuff. thanks to the “skaters” now i like trve kvlt metal!!!!!

          • I grew up goth, then I grew up. Pretty much after military school, and the chaos there, people knew not to pick a fight with me.

        • Scrimm

          Both

    • What is this background music hahahahaha

      • Metaphysical Anus

        It’s something beautiful.

      • Scrimm

        That’s what I was thinking ahhahahaha

    • Cock of Steele

      Has he gone nutty?

  • Simon Phoenix

    Hey I take offense to that opening statement, buddy. Pentagram Chile are awesome.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4krNvSBGvBk

    • Simon Phoenix

      For the record, I am stoked for this show. Especially since we get Blood Ceremony.

    • Howard Dean

      I back this hard. The Chilean Pentagram is sweet.

  • Mon*Star

    More excited to see Blood Ceremony. Saw Pentagram twice. The first time they were great, but there was a substitute guitar player so they played some old blues and rock covers to fill out the set. Still very enjoyable. Second time Bobby sounded (and looked) terrible. Victor’s playing was killer, though.

  • crazytaco_12

    I saw Pentagram earlier this year; Bobby was looking better and Pentagram overall was good. But I’ll tell you what, Radio Moscow fucking killed it before them, they are a very hard act to follow and a great band that I think anybody who’s into the genre will love. It’s fucking awesome that Bang! and Blood Ceremony are on the bill as well, don’t miss out if you can make it to one of these shows.

  • I saw ‘Last Days Here’ a while back, and goddamn I’ve never seen anyone that fucking wrecked from drugs (and trust me, I’ve seen and known my share of drug addicts)! Thankfully he spun that ship around and got better, but it was definitely not expected.

  • Michel LeGrisbi

    Wow, Bang!
