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."
