Newsletter from Cyclone Empire:

THE CULT IS ALIVE…and Chilean MEGA-cult PENTAGRAM CHILE (see below about why this is now the new moniker) is at least working on their FIRST EVER album…to be released sometime this fall via CYCLONE EMPIRE!!!

To keep u updated and let you know first infos, mainman Anton Reisenegger(CRIMINAL, LOCK UP) wrote down a “little” statement…so enjoy !!!


“First of all, many of you have heard rumours about a significant line-up change in the band. Unfortunately it's true, as we have decided to part ways with our original drummer Eduardo Topelberg, a.k.a.“Eurynomos”.

When we did the 2009 reunion tour, first in Chile and later in Europe, the chemistry within the band was great and we agreed to carry on and finally record our first studio album. Juan Pablo Uribe (guitar) and I got together months later to start writing, and the outcome was amazing. We wrote about 8 songs in the first weekend, which in our opinion totally live up to the standard set by the classic demo songs.

We then set a date for January 2011 to track the drums in Chile, but when I arrived there, ready to record, I found out that Eduardo had experimented some very drastic changes in his life, which unfortunately affected his performance as a musician. We still went into the studio to give him a chance, but the result was just not good enough to end up on our long-awaited debut album.

We all love Eduardo dearly and we wish him nothing but the best, but my impression is that playing drums is just not a priority for himany more. I sincerely hope he proves me wrong in the future, as he will always be part of the PENTAGRAM family, but we needed a change if we wanted to move forward.

Enter Juan Pablo Donoso, a legendary Chilean drummer who has been active in the scene for almost as long as we have, and whose drumming skills have been the foundation of bands such as SADISM and THORNAFIRE. He has also lent those skills to a number of bands as a session drummer, plus he has produced/engineered tons of Chilean metal albums in his own Sade Studios.

Having witnessed those early PENTAGRAM shows in the eighties as a teenager, he immediately understood what we were looking for in a drummer.

Juan Pablo has now finished tracking the drums for the album, and we feel that he has really taken those songs in and interpreted them with the original PENTAGRAM style in mind. No lightning-fast, sampled, quantized drums, but pure feeling, the same primitive, brutal, frenzied feeling of our early material.

Now we can finally move on and finish what we feel is a historic debt: The first-ever PENTAGRAM stuio album. At this point I want to thank our label Cyclone Empire for their patience, understanding and support.Their comment: “It has taken so long for you to record and album that a year more or less doesn't really matter!”

On a different subject, we have decided to officially change our name to PENTAGRAM CHILE, fundamentally out of respect to the “other” PENTAGRAM (the original and true PENTAGRAM, if you will), led by Bobby Liebling.

We actually met Bobby and the band at 2009's Hell's Pleasure festival (yes, two Pentagrams on the same bill!), and they were really cool and laid back, and apparently didn't have the slightest problem with us using the same name. However, I must admit that having the same name has caused some confusion here and there (like having a picture of the US Pentagram in the Wacken program brochure when it was us playing).

We think and hope that this solution will be accepted by everybody. Our fans in Chile and elsewhere will probably still refer to us simply as PENTAGRAM, but we want to make sure there is no more mix-ups in the future, as we intend to tour extensively with the new album. We just thought that changing our name to something completely different would cause even more confusion rather than preventing it.

Last but not least, although we had decided to give priority to finishing the album and not to play live until it was done, we recently recieved an offer we couldn't refuse. We are now confirmed for the tenth edition of the Maryland Deathfest to be held at Sonar in Baltimore at the end of this month. We are scheduled to play on Sunday, May 27th at 18:25 on one of the outside stages, inbetween Morgoth and Saint Vitus. This is going to be our North American live debut and we just can't wait!

Afterwards we will resume work on the album, which we expect to have completed by the end of the summer. Thanks everybody for your patience and ongoing support. You won't be disappointed!”

- Anton Reisenegger -

Well, I'm sure there will be some dissapointment....How did they sound on those 2009 tours?
Edit: They shouldn't have altered the name one bit either, everyone should know who's who.

I don't remember the reaction to the 2009 tour, but this is at least superficially intriguing. Those demos are of course foundational texts in the canon of death/thrash metal. I'm definitely curious about this.

The demos were awesome. Great underground thrash.

But how would they sound today ? What will they bring ? I'm at least curious.

This name changing is atrocious.

Searched and found a thread on the 2009 tour - the few reactions posted here were extremely impressed: http://nwnprod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8862

So hopefully that's a good sign for this album.

re: the name change - don't care, as long as they don't come up with a whole new logo that has "CHILE" as large as the PENTAGRAM part. I'll be listing it as Pentagram in iTunes regardless of what it says on the spine of the CD.

I expect nothing out of this, and fear everything. I don't really like those comebacks from cult bands. They should've recorded this album in late 80's, they WERE so promising...

The live album sounded like shit. Did they at least drop the NYHC style vocals? I hope for the best but expect the worst.

My feelings exactly though I will still catch them at MDF. Hopefully they won't suck!

As far as I know, they don't really have any new songs in their set...?

I saw them live at 2009 in Wacken Open Air in Germany, they were... good. Just that.

Will be catching them at MDF for a full report. I don't trust these reform demo bands anymore to have faith in the album.

Enjoyed the Hell's Pleasure show a few years ago

Think they played a new/unreleased song which sounded alright

Yes, great show in my opinion !

The song was called "Demented" and is an unreleased song from the 80's. Killer song by the way:

About the new album, I don't know what to expect, the 2009 gigs were cool but Reisenegger's later works with Criminal are utter shit.
