Pentagram, the highly influential American heavy metal/doom act fronted by mastermind Bobby Liebling, formed in the early 1970s. Through four decades of adversity and triumph, Pentagram has become a legendary international act and has firmly stamped its name in the heavy metal history books.


Although always a cult act with a strong and dedicated worldwide fan base, Pentagram has enjoyed a recent surge in interest due in part to the fly-on-the-wall 2011 documentary, Last Days Here, following the life, trials and tribulations of Bobby Liebling. The film 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.
Stay tuned for more information on Pentagram and All Your Sins, out next month on Peaceville.



Scott Weiland launching new band, wants to be Axl Rose

Ok, so maybe I made up the last part of the headline but it was funny. He seems to really enjoy playing with any one who has played with Axl. First and most famously there was his stint in Velvet Revolver which was really in many ways Guns and Roses The Return.  Now it looks like Weiland is going after members of the current GNR line up by tapping Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal to play in his new band Art of Anarchy. The Super Group will complete it’s line up with bassist John Moyer (Disturbed), guitarist Jon Votta and drummer Vince Votta.

Looks like Mr. Weiland is going to be pretty busy this year as he’s also working and getting ready to release a new album with his band Wildabouts. Shortly after the album drops they will start touring. Art of Anarchy is set to release it’s debute album some time this spring.

I was able to find this preview on Youtube. Some of the songs sound like the kind of thing we heard with Velvet Revolver and some of it’s a lot heavier than what you would expect from a Weiland project. Occasionally there is a little bit of the old style STP as well.  Check out this album preview and tell me what you think.



Female fronted, alternative rock band Forever Still have released a new EP called “Scars”. The EP is the first of three digital EPs that will eventually end up as one physical full length album in the spring of 2015. The EP can be downloaded directly from the bands website: where the band lets their fans pay what they want for it.

“We believe that music should be available to everyone – both those who are broke, and those who have a little extra to spare in support of the artists they love” Maja explains. “That’s why we’re letting the fans name their own price. All we ask is that they SHARE it with everyone!”

The EP is recorded, mixed and mastered in Copenhagen by band member Mikkel Haastrup in the band’s own studio. Mikkel is a trained sound engineer by Flemming ‘Metallica’ Rasmussen. “We like our music and everything surrounding it to be 100% honest and we felt the only way we could achieve that was by doing everything ourselves” says Mikkel.

The EP is Part 1 of the bands debut album which is a concept album about a  suppressed individual struggling through depression, anxiety, and worthlessness and getting stronger in the process. “The songs are all very raw, emotional and somewhat imperfect, because we wanted it to sound like someone falling apart and trying to put the pieces back together” says Maja

The EP has been welcomed with open arms by both fans and media calling it a “three song masterpiece”, as well as stating that “Maja’s voice is better than ever and showcases incredible versatility. The compositional skills of the band go from strength to strength and the musicianship is awesomely professional.”


*Editors Note:

I had the opportunity to review Forever Still’s The Key here on the site back in August. If you read my review you know I was quite taken with this band. I’m really looking forward to hearing what they have for us this time around.

Unlike Danielsen’s previous solo EP ‘Enjoy the Process,’ which released in 2013 and featured six acoustic tracks, ‘Food Chain’ consists of five full-band songs recorded at Babyland Studios in Van Nuys, Calif. “My new EP ‘Food Chain’ was a fun project for me because there were really no rules or boundaries I had to follow,” Danielsen recently told Revolver Magazine. “My work with Smile Empty Soul is very free as well, but it does have to stay within the lines of the traditional 3-piece. With my solo stuff, I can just do whatever the song is calling for and take it to places Smile never goes.” A new ‘Food Chain’ track “Rescue Me” can be streamed on the Revolver website at:

Danielsen is currently on a solo acoustic tour throughout the month in support of the new EP.
