Doom metal legends Pentagram shredded the Meatlocker on 10/26/19 on their tour of the Eastern US. Formed in 1971, Pentagram played a pivotal role in inspiring a generation of doom, death, and sludge. A packed house moshed and crowdsurfed to a slew of new and old tracks spanning their storied history in rock and roll. If you live in the midwest, Pentagram will be continuing your way through early November before hooking back east to finish their tour in Washington DC on 11/7. Photos by Jon Reino.
The evening began with sets from some of the area's finest sludge bands. Performing first was Mantismass, a (mostly) instrumental progressive sludge 4 piece. Combining technical shredding with straight up dirty noise, these guys are a blast to hear and should not be missed. Dutchguts followed, igniting a crowd of both familiar locals and loyal travelers. Their fast, agressive, classic sound stands alone in the New Jersey scene and was the perfect match to Pentagrams technical gloom and doom.
