Pentacle has been around for awhile, forming in 1990 and recording the odd single and split EP in addition to the releases documented below. A clear source of inspiration here is early Celtic Frost, particularly in the guitar tone and riffing. But while CF delved into darker, doomier occult themes, Pentacle is a faster proposition -- one way to put it is if Celtic Frost had moved in a faster and deathier direction on their later releases, they might have sounded similar to Pentacle.
