Influenced by the likes of Bill Ward, Ian Paice, and Les Binks, drummer Sean Saley grew up on hard rock and Heavy Metal before taking a turn as drummer for DC underground punk legends Government Issue in the 80s. Anyone familiar with the Maryland Metal scene may also remember Sean from 90s-era technical/doom/thrash wizards Angstrom, which also featured blind guitarist Torey Ferguson. Sean had been a longtime Pentagram fan before joining the band.
Pentagram have announced their first ever UK tour in the forty years they've been together in October and November 2012. After the Doom pioneers first ever UK show in London last year Bobby Leibling and the boys return for four shows with Gentlemans Pistols as support.
