Pentacle
Ancient Death
Company: Vic
Release: 2016
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 11/3/2016

Old school death metal brought back to life
COMMENTS:
Pentacle's 2001 EP "Ancient Death" had been re-released by Vic Records. Worth its old school sound, it feels a bit dated yet strangely like home. Think early Morbid Angel, Death and Venom sound. Raw, aggressive and unyielding, it harnesses that old clarify death metal sound. A nice blast from the past here.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Death, Venom, Morbid Angel, Mantas
