Bobby Liebling has been Pentagram’s center peg for three decades. That’s O.G. tenure for anyone, but amid the black mists of doom metal, 35 years is like 35 centuries. The original ghoul’s latest return includes drummer Gary Isom, bassist Mark Ammen, and guitarist Russ Strahan and is one of only two scheduled American appearances. So unless you like your Motör-Sabbath doom with a side of Baltimore (or provincial France: Pentagram plays there this June), Webster is it for all the single heshers who crave their day of reckoning. Or Liebling. With the Devil’s Blood.
