One of the few original Norwegian Black Metal bands that tried to stay true to their roots, and yet somehow failed. Some people saw Quantos Possunt Ad Satanitatem Trahunt (what a retarted title) as a return to the days of glory and I guess it is. Sort of. How do you guys feel about this band? Is Pentagram really up there with the classics of the second wave?

Pentagram, no doubt about it. This is one of my favourite albums from the second wave of Norwegian bands.

Pentagram. First three albums are all essential and for me personally, highlight of norsk arisk black metal.

Pentagram + demos. Antichrist is good too, but not as essential. Under the sign of Hell was the last decent thing they did, for me at least. I only feel the need to own Pentagram & that demos bootleg, personally.

Under the Sign of Hell. There is something undeniable savage and primal about this one. Although the first three are all classics in my book.

Yeah, first 3 are essential. I voted for Under The Sign Of Hell because of the insane thrash can drums and tuka-tuka parts. I don't care about the rest.

Pretty much agree. the demos with Hat's vocals sound like a more organized Abruptum. Perfect!

Sadly they fell into the pit of mediocrity. What boring satanists they became.

Antichrist is good too, last Gorgoroth I would ever listen to.

Under the sign of hell is their obvious peak, insane riffs and drumming there, Pentagram and Antichrist come close second. The last really good album was Incipit satan (which I know the resident gang of Xasthur-listening retards will hate, not enough blastbeats on that one), In Conspiracy had two good songs, everything else is definitely sub par (although I'd like to listen to Quantos with a better production, songs aren't all that bad per se).

I voted UTSOH. I love the first two and the demos, obviously, but I feel like UTSOH is more "personnal", less "by the book" in terms of traditionnal norwegian 2nd-wave black metal. The performances of everyone involved on this record are flawless, the über-dry production gives the album a sound that's unlike anything else in that style, I love it.

Followed by "Under the Sign of Hell" (Original) and "Antichrist".

Never cared much for anything that came afterwards...

With that court circus over "copyrights" they became a laughingstock.

Plus, "Under the Sign of Hell 2011" is the most pointless and talentless re-recording ever, in the history of Black Metal. Ought to be re-named in "Under the Sign of Fail".

I considered Under The Sign Of Hell as their best for years. I guess that hasn't changed really, but the first three will always be there among the first to know when you get into norwegian black metal. Good stuff, maybe a little rusty these days, but still mandatory. I can handle Destroyer and Incipit Satan too, and why not Twilight and Ad Majorem as well, even if with certain reservations, but I skipped the last full length completely for its obvious shortcomings.

My vote goes to Pentagram. The material is consistent and if there is such a thing as an "evil" mix, Pentagram has it! Antichrist is close second and both are very nostalgic for me; I especially remember struggling to learn the guitar trying to play along to "crushing the scepter"!

Pentagram, then Twilight of the Idols, oddly enough.
