Pentagram begin auditioning guitarists

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 26th October 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Legendary pioneers of doom metal Pentagram are auditioning new guitar players. As previously announced, the revered guitarist Victor Griffin is performing his farewell shows during the Oct/Nov European Relentless Tour. He’ll be focusing on his solo career from this point on and the band and fans wish him all the best. Victor will forever be an important part of the “Ram Family.”

Pentagram is now searching for the perfect player who can easily play the blazing, early blues-based, hard rock, proto-metal of the late Vincent McAllister as well as the doom metal mastery of the one and only Victor Griffin. Tone, chops, appearance, tour experience and availability (US and abroad so a passport is required), song writing skills, and sobriety are all important factors. The band will be writing/recording their follow up to the acclaimed Metal Blade release, Last Rites this coming December and January.

Someone who is close to the Washington, DC area is preferred but exceptions will be made for the perfect player.

For songs and video of the band, visit: www.reverbnation.com/pentagramofficial
Please submit a short bio, a photo, and audio or video of you playing. PENTAGRAM song covers are preferred and the following songs are suggested:
“Wolf’s Blood”
“All Your Sins”
“Treat Me Right”
“When the Screams Come”
“Forever My Queen”
“20 Buck Spin”

The pioneers of doom Pentagram, led by the ghost-like vocalist and founding member Bobby Liebling will be hitting the grim shores of Blighty for their First Ever UK Tour at the end of the month and will be playing the classic album Relentless in its entirety.

Victor Griffin has announced that he will be vacating his duties within the band at the end of this tour. “…For now, it’s time to move on with my new band’s album and tour plans for 2013,” stated Griffin in the announcement.  So far, there has been no word on who will take his place.

Pentagram have gone through a number of line-up changes through their 41 year existence, with Griffin occupying the guitar spot roughly four times since 1979, being just one of the band’s 10 guitar players.  In addition to Relentless, Griffin can be heard on such gems as Day of Reckoning, Be Forewarned, and 2010′s Last Rites.
