You can't talk about heavy metal without talking about PENTAGRAM. The legendary D.C. band has been committed to the dark arts for going on half a decade, and has only recently seen the kind of recognition its legacy deserves. Though the band has released nine influential full-lengths over the course of its career, PENTAGRAM's most popular and influential material since its Relapse resurrection fifteen years ago can be found in First Daze Here, a collection of the band's earliest works that has been out-of-print for years and will now finally see a new reissue via Relapse this coming June. Its companion First Daze Here Too, a 22-track collection of unreleased studio recordings and live rehearsals from the early '70s, will also see its first reissue since going out of print several years ago.
Both reissues have been newly remastered and include in-depth liner notes from founding PENTAGRAM member/original drummer Geof O'Keefe along with gorgeously revitalized layouts. CD Version of First Daze Here includes a vinyl-shaped CD featuring the two newly remastered versions of the infamous Macabre 45! The original mix of the long-lost 45 will also see its first-ever vinyl pressing for this reissue, and is available in the deluxe First Daze Here/First Daze Here Too bundle or along with the Bone White/Gold Merge LP of First Daze Here.
Stream the remastered version of the classic track "Forever My Queen" now below.
First Daze Here and First Daze Here Too will both be released this June 17 on 2CD/LP/Digital and 2CD/2xLP/Digital respectively. Physical pre-orders, including a variety of limited-edition vinyl colors and exclusive package options containing the Macabre 7", can be found via Relapse.com. Digital pre-orders for First Daze Here and First Daze Here Too are available via PENTAGRAM's Bandcamp page.
PENTAGRAM have also announced a West Coast tour with WAX IDOLS and KING WOMAN this coming May! The band will be crushing audiences for two weeks kicking off this May 17, and will also be performing at Psycho Las Vegas this August - check out a full list of dates below.
