Pentagram / Panzehir
In its 30-year career, the band Pentagram, which is known as Mezarkabul outside of Turkey, has shrugged off any taboos that still reign in the contemporary extreme music. Founded back in 1987, Pentagram are a reference point in the history of Turkish heavy metal and the only metal superstars selling hundreds of thousands of albums in their home territory.
You might ask yourself: Can metal music be brought together with a culture that dates back thousands of years? By blending heavy metal with Anatolian and Mesopotamian musical heritage, Pentagram offers a hard-hitting reply to that question. They have released seven albums, two live recordings and two DVDs, some of which has been distributed under contract with Nuclear Blast and Century Media of Germany and Sony Music Turkey.
Pentagram’s name has been mentioned right alongside bands such as Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Accept, Manowar, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Queensryche, Guns N’ Roses, Alice in Chains and Rammstein at international music festivals including Wacken.
On 25th of 2019, the band will be taking the stage at SO36 supported by Panzehir, a well-known rock band from Berlin.
