PENTAGRAM Announce New Guitarist

After months of searching and reviewing literally hundreds of applicants from around the world, PENTAGRAM has announced Matt Goldborough as their new guitarist.

Matt is a Philadelphia based musician, composer and riff aficionado. Versed in many genres of music, Matt’s experience outside of the heavy metal world brings a fresh yet classic approach to this genre-defining band. His style hearkens back to the very origins of “heavy metal” itself when heavy blues and psychedelic rock guitarists pioneered the genre in an attempt to harden rock and roll. This of course is exactly what Bobby Liebling and the original Pentagram line up did back in 1971.

Having played in a bevy of bands on the East coast, Goldsborough is most recently known as part of the acclaimed Philadelphia rock band, THE GREAT UNKNOWN.

His debut with Pentagram, rounded out by Bobby Liebling on vocals, Greg Turley on bass guitar and Sean Saley on drums, was on April 16th, at the sold out show at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY. If that gig wasn’t special enough, the band performed songs not heard live in over 40 years! Inspired by a demand from the fans, Liebling and company pulled out rare gems, including ‘Be Forewarned’.

Pentagram dates:

April
25 – Berlin, Germany – Astra, Desertfest 2013
26 – Barroselas, Portugal – Barrosela Metalfest XVI
28 – London, UK – Electric Ballroom, Desertfest 2013

May
26 – Baltimore, MD – Forme Sonar Compound, Maryland Deatfest 2013

July
25-28 – TBA, Montana – Farmageddon Records Music Festival

Victor Griffin used to be the guitarist in the doom metal band Pentagram back in the 80’s who are credited as being one of the creators of the doom metal genre.  Since that time it seems Griffin has kept himself busy with various projects including still being a member in Pentagram until last year.  Now we have his own project, ‘In-Graved’ he now graces us with.  Is it a doom metal album?  Is it a good album or a steaming pile of shit?  Can Victor Griffin sing?  Well read on for my earth shattering review!
