Album: Review Your Choices (1999)

  • Satanism in Heavy Metal is a misunderstood trope, with the songs often reflecting more complex views on religion than simply blind allegiance to the Devil. Much of it is also theatrics - AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and a host of lesser Metalmen have created a buzz with hints of Beelzebub in their lyrics.

    Pentagram, however, had a more sincere interest in the subject, as evidenced by their band name. "Review Your Choices," written by lead singer Bobby Liebling, explains that there is an alternative to God which is worthy of consideration. When we spoke with Liebling in 2013, he explained: "I remember I was real deep into Satanism, which is the wrong way to go. I'll tell you that right now, I don't care how self serving you are. You don't step on people's faces to get there. I learned that the hard way."
