Sure but all the good parts are basically stolen riffs from the better known Norsk bands. I can't listen to a single song on Pentagram without thinking "Burzum? Darkthrone? Mayhem? All 3?"
What? Can you give any concrete examples of this?

I don't have it memorized or anything but I'll find some examples later. You really don't hear the heavy borrowing from other bands on Pentagram? It's a new band emulating local heroes on their way to recording more developed and individual songs, full stop. My ears are pretty battered though so maybe my impressions are flawed.. But I've felt this way since the first time I heard it.

Not much more than the basic black metal template. I've never thought to myself "ah, this riff sounds like x". Some riffs do sound kind of very standard black metal, like the first couple minutes of "Drømmer om Død" for example, and those are what I meant with "filler" riffs.

Antichrist for sure. I would say that Destroyer is probably their most underrated though. The interaction between the different guitar parts and the pure fucking passion of the riffs on tracks like "open the gates" is just amazing.

Ad Majorem, but first 5 are really good. After that one, it became a joke.

I totally agree on this.

My vote went to Incipit Satan still, purely for nostalgia reasons. Everything after this album still have good riffs or parts here and there but not too much heart into it. Seems like they were just fulfilling their contracts.

UTSOH 2011 is an abortion. As some pointed out, the worst re-recording in BM... pointless, meaningless, and uninspired as fuck.

Quantos Possunt has good riffs and ideas but it was destroyed by a production that has nothing to do with BM, especially the In Flames-sounding drums.

No comment on the In Flames part but for me they just sound plastic and artificial. Hopefully the next album is recorded somewhere else than Asklund's basement.

I don't think the re-recording was that bad, but unlike the majority of metalheads I consider the actual riffing to be more important than guitar fuzz.

Pentagram is my fave and I also like Antichrist.

I think the band is unique because they were tremolo picking classical sounding riffs before most other bm bands, kinda like what At the Gates were doing for Death Metal a few years earlier.

Ive always thought this band survived mainly on hype. The revolving door line-up (which has consisted of some awesome musicians) has led to nothing but inconsistent material from album to album. That being said they have eeeked out a few great songs. Under the Sign of Hell wins for me. Their re-recording of it is an utter fucking embarrassment. They should have quit after Incipit Satan.

Darkthrone are an influence, sure. Maybe Mayhem even definitely not Burzum, but even Darkthrone weren't as raw as Gorgoroth were on their three albums. Darkthrone's only raw effort was Under a funeral moon, and Pentagram is far more primal and intense than that album.
