  PENTAGRAM ANNOUNCE NEW DRUMMER
14th June 2012

pentagram



After weeks of extensive auditions, occult rock legends Pentagram have found a full-time drummer in Virginia Native Sean Saley. Sean's debut with the band begins during this summer's European Festival Circuit, which starts with Sweden Rock in Sölvesborg, Sweden.

Sean stated before flying to his debut at Sweden Rock: "I'm more than excited, honored and ready to rock as part of the essential Heavy Metal institution that is Pentagram. They're local favorites and idols to me."

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.

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.
