Gorgoroth - Pentagram

Artist: Gorgoroth
Album: Pentagram      
Label: Unknown Label (Bootleg Cassette)
Limitation: Unknown
Country: Norway
Genre: 2nd-Wave Black Metal Classic
Year: 1994

Found this little bootleg cassette on Ebay for super cheap. I'm sure anyone who's acquainted with my humble blog has more than a passing familiarity with this classic record. And while Gorgoroth may not have aged very well as a band in general, this album is, in my opinion, up there with the De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas' and the Filosofem's of the world. Not the least reason of which is Hat's vocal performance, which blows Gaahl's pretentious histrionics out of the water any day of the week. I shouldn't have to mention to anyone that this time-honored album is absolutely and totally essential.
