Members Of PENTAGRAM And HELSTAR To Perform One-Of-A-Kind Sets With SANCTUS BELLUM ...
For the Sanctus Bellum Sanctuary set with Bobby Liebling, the band will perform a full set of '70s PENTAGRAM classics, most of which have not been performed live in decades and some of which have never been performed live at all. Speaking on the Sanctus Bellum Sanctuary set, SANCTUS BELLUM bassist Ben Yaker stated: "Anyone who knows me knows that I've been a huge PENTAGRAM fan for years and that my favorite incarnation of the band is the '70s lineup. This show has given me the opportunity to select some of my favorite-but-often-overlooked PENTAGRAM tracks that I've always wanted to hear Bobby perform live. "It's an incredible honor to be able to share the stage with Bobby, who's been the driving force behind my all-time favorite band, PENTAGRAM, and with James, who's helmed the most significant metal band ever to come out of Houston."
The festival, which will also feature performances by SANCTUS BELLUM, CAULDRON (ex-GAMMACIDE), H.R.A., OWL WITCH and SERPENT SUN, celebrates the birthdays of YAKER and SANCTUS BELLUM guitarist Jan Kimmel. Artwork for the event by Will Broadbent Illustration, which will be available as a full color 24x36 poster at the show, features the members of SANCTUS BELLUM, along with Liebling and Rivera, animated as members of the LEGION OF DOOM.
SANCTUS BELLUM's most recent album, "The Shining Path", was released on June 12.
