Last weekends, we have been recording and mixing five new tracks at A.M. Studios, Gouda, The Netherlands for these upcoming releases:

- a double 7" w/ gatefold cover w/ Eternal Solstice on Dark Descent Records (featuring two new tracks)
- a split 7" w/ Mortem on Iron Pegasus Records (featuring one new track)
- a split 12" w/ Sadistic Intent 12" on Iron Pegasus Records (featuring two new tracks)

We are working together with producer André van der Ree. An old friend of ours as he was and still is the drummer of Eternal Solstice, a band we shared many stages with back in the 90's. The recordings went smoothly without any hick ups. There is still some mixing and mastering to be done, but the material is progressing in the right direction. About the songs themselves, expect the expected: Pentacle styled Ancient Death Metal. Nothing more, nothing less.

Overall, we are very glad to have the opportunity to work together with these amazing Death Metal acts. We all have the same musical back ground, we know the members on a personal level, we shared many stages together and most important, there's a big respect for each other. This is an amazing set up of bands.

Manuel Tinnemans is reponsible for the artwork of these releases (expect for Mortem). The Pentacle artwork is a tripich: the parts will be used for the seperate releases each, yet all three combined they create the actual drawing in one piece. The split 12" with Sadistic Intent will include a poster with the artwork as a whole.

About the release date(s), nothing is set for a full 100% yet, but both bands and labels are working hard to release the items asap possible.

Beyond and back...

Back to the days when several members of Pentacle spent many Sunday afternoons in the sweaty Willem II in Den Bosch, The Netherlands. Around 1988-1994 both Mike and I saw countless amazing acts destroying the stage of the tiny, yet intimate club. We were able to witness (upcoming) international acts like Morbid Angel, Death, Autopsy, Revenant, Massacre, Carcass, Cathedral, Immolation, Grave, Samael, Bolt Thrower, Tiamat, Paradise Lost, Nocturnus and Entombed touring The Netherlands (for the first time). But also great Dutch bands like Sinister, Gorefest, Dead Head, Asphyx, Thanatos, Korsakov, Pestilence, Acrostichon and The Gathering were pounding our eardrums with their deadly sounds. Meeting kindred maniacs from all over The Netherlands/Belgium and buying records from the back trunk of Wim Baelus' car. Those days were/are really something special...

After years The Gathering came in contact again with several members from Acrostichon. Of course they talked a lot about the good old days, especially the ones they had, just like us, at the Willem II. They had a great nostalgic trip talking about those days. Soon they came to the conclusion they would love to do this again! The Gathering's debut album 'Always...' is almost 20 years old (April 1992). Hans Rutten (drums) contacted all old school Gathering 'Always...' era members and everybody immediately liked the idea to do something together. An old school Doom/Death party! Acrostichon released their debut album 'Engraved in Black' almost the same period, and Pentacle released their debut demo 'Caressed by Both Sides' as well 20 years ago. Why not celebrate this? So, after sharing so many amazing memories and friendships, it's time to add something new again!

Grab your agenda: The Gathering, Acrostichon and Pentacle will play live together at the Willem II (now called W2) Sunday afternoon 1st of April (no joke!) 2012! Acrostichon will be headlining, The Gathering and Pentacle will be support acts.

Last but definitly not least: All profit will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

DARK AND SADISTIC ANCIENT DEATH METAL…

The deed has been done! After many talks Pentacle proudly presents a fiendish pact with the mighty Sadistic Intent from LA, California. In conspiracy with Iron Pegasus Records both bands will record new material for an upcoming split release. More information soon to descend upon mankind.
