All Your Sins

Album: Pentagram (1984)
  • Pentagram had been around for a least a decade in some form before releasing their first album in 1984, which contained this track. The band had some ardent fans, but also a great deal of turmoil and a penchant for self-destruction. Most interest in the band came in the '00s after some compilation albums were released, and in 2011 they were the subject of a documentary called Last Days Here, which showed their journey from budding Rock Stars to the pits of despair.

    "All Your Sins" is one of just two songs that their guitarist Victor Griffin and lead singer Bobby Liebling wrote together. "It's a great song," Liebling said in our 2013 interview. "Now, there's a spiritual song for you. Archetype serious reality, you know. Right then since we were in all that stuff and we learned that this is a no no, this is not the way to go go. And a lot of that had to do with my big mouth, like Ralph Kramden used to say on The Honeymooners."
