22 Years Ago: GORGOROTH release Pentagram

We are very satisfied with Frost. He is also playing drums on our new CD “DҰD”. And about a permanent membership we have thought about it, and if there is any persons who should be worth it, it must be Frost, but it is also up to him. Ok.
Samoth is no longer joining Gorgoroth
– Hat / Gorgoroth interview, Nordic Vision #3 1995

Released by Embassy Productions (the label of Tragic Empire distribution, run by Phil Galliano) on this day in 1994.

BATHORY was THE true black metal band of all time. I know that we are nothing new and orignial, but that’s the way we want it. So many bands sound ‘original’, so we just want to keep the old black spirit alive, which was created by old gods.

Our influences come from the ancient gods of black metal, BATHORY, HELLHAMMER, VENOM, etc.. As for the lyrics; they are created by our sick minds, the influences for them come from evil woods, wanderin’ round in the dark and the freezing forests of Norway.
– Goat Pervertor / Gorgoroth interview, Tales of the Macabre #1 1993

“Pentagram” contain 8 hatefull track’s, very brutal, thou also melodic. This is pure, true Black Metal as it was ment to be. There is 6 new track’s + the two from the demo A Sorcery….thou a bit different. I don’t think its any big difference between our new and old stuff. Its black art.
