Pentagram is an American doom metal band from Washington, DC Inspired by Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer, the band is very prolific in the 1970's underground scene, releasing several demos but not records his first album in the mid-1980s, with a line-up almost completely changed. The only constant member of the group is the singer, Bobby Liebling.
These changes in musicians allow members of bands like Places of Skulls, Internal Void and Spirit Caravan to play in Pentagram, as they were part of the underground doom metal scene of the day. The band originally consists of Bobby Liebling (vocals), Vincent McAllister (bass), Geof O'Keefe (guitar) and Steve Martin (drums).
In 1971, Liebling and Geof O'Keefe decided to leave their bands (Shades of Darkness and Space Meat, respectively) to form a new one in order to play a musical style similar to UFO, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Sir Lord Baltimore. Under Liebling's suggestion, the group is named Pentagram, a sinister name that reflects the dark nature of their musical style.
The band changed regularly between 1971 and 1972 (Virgin Death, Macabre, and Wicked Angel), but finally and finally took the name of Pentagram. Contrary to rumors, they never called themselves Stonebunny; it was the nickname Space Meat gave Bobby Liebling when he briefly joined them. In five years of career, they will have five different artistic agents, like Gordon Fletcher, a writer of Washington D.C. who wrote especially for Rolling Stone, Creem and Circus. Others include Steve Lorber, Phillip Knudsen, Skip Groff, Bob Fowler, Tim Kidwell and Tom McGuire.
