25 Years Ago: GORGOROTH release Pentagram

"Pentagram" contain 8 hatefull track's, very brutal, thou also melodic. This is pure, true Black Metal as it was ment to be. There is 6 new track's + the two from the demo A Sorcery....thou a bit different. I don't think its any big difference between our new and old stuff. Its black art.

BATHORY was THE true black metal band of all time. I know that we are nothing new and orignial, but that's the way we want it. So many bands sound 'original', so we just want to keep the old black spirit alive, which was created by old gods.

Our influences come from the ancient gods of black metal, BATHORY, HELLHAMMER, VENOM, etc.. As for the lyrics; they are created by our sick minds, the influences for them come from evil woods, wanderin' round in the dark and the freezing forests of Norway.
