Release Date April 12, Track Listing. Treat Me Right. Call the Man. Into the Ground. Everything's Turning to Night. Windmills and Chimes. Venom is another that comes to mind. Thankfully the band's loose approach to recording keeps things from sounding too "clean".

It must also be noted that the album doesn't overstay it's welcome. The songs aren't overly long and drawn out and the overall album isn't overly long either. After all is said and done, "Curious Volume" leave the listener wanting for more, rather than being worn out and bore. Death Row 2. All Your Sins 3. Sign of the Wolf Pentagram 4. The Ghoul 5.

Actually, Tomaselli and bassist Greg Turley aren't to blame for this album's shortcomings except maybe on I found the rhythm section to "Treat Me Right" quite respectable in its "mow-you-downess; it's really Liebling and Griffin who are at fault on these two.

With a thick stocky level of production all around - no complaints here - still, don't expect any "Lazy Lady" style wanderlust here. Nevertheless, Turley and Tomaselli keep this bold grimoire bolted down while you flip through its pages.

It's not the kind of release worth sticking with from beginning to end nor is it a page turner. A mediocre album with a handful of humdingers worth bookmarking is more like it. Which brings me to another stand-out cut, the cryptically titled "8", which features an array of ominous, reverb laden progressions, tribally inclined thumping on behalf of Tomaselli and Liebling back on top of his game as the enigmatic and quirky front man long-time Pentagram fans have come to love.

Richly textured and dramatically layered, "8" delivers right up to Griffin's distinctly Iommi-ish circa Heaven And Hell as well as The Mob Rules soloing, which, although somewhat cramped, is also more direct and bombastic compared to his standard soulful fare.

The release of Pentagram 's latest album, 's ominously titled Last Rites, via Metal Blade, is emblematic of the Virginia doom icons' painfully slow rise out of obscurity, as this is undoubtedly the most powerful record company association of the band's ill-starred year career.7/
