A new Studio album from the Leaders of ancient Death Metal in the Dutch tradition, recorded at Harrows (i.e. ASPHYX, MELECHESH,…), bunkercracking and heavy as it can be! U.S. Digipak CD pressing with liner notes & bonus NECROVORE cover song not featured on the European edition.
Wannes Gubbels (vocals/bass) of PENTACLE has released this statement about the band’s release on Ibex Moon Records:

“As was the case with its predecessor _Ancient Death?, our new album _Under the Black Cross? is again a very honest and raw sounding Death Metal offering. Don_t expect something fancy. Being inspired by classic acts as Venom, Celtic Frost, Possessed, Mantas/Death and Pentagram (Chile), this is pure obscure extreme underground Metal the Pentacle style. Recorded in the studio where we laid all our other previous albums on tape (Harrow Productions), _Under the Black Cross? features a heavy production with its raw edges, as it is meant to be.

The US-version of _Under the Black Cross? contains some extras the Euro-release didn_t feature. For the first time on CD, one will be able to read the whole lyrical output dealing with the concept of _Under the Black Cross?, being Operation Chariot. This was a daring British Commando Raid that took place at Saint Nazaire, France, 1942. Now you can experience all the facts about wartime horror, honour, glory and most of all_death.

Except for our eight original compositions, we’ve included our personal interpretation of Necrovore’s “Divus de Mortuus”. Being a major influence for Pentacle we are truly honoured to present you this track. Mind you, you can never replace the original, but we_re damn proud of our own version!

Being around in this scene with Pentacle for almost 18 years now, we can say we_ve achieved another personal high-light. It literally took blood, sweat and tears to get this record done, but we made it happen. We hope all you Death Metal heads will share our feelings about this album and that you_ll enjoy it as much as we do. Remember_Death Metal came with the Wind.
