(Dark Realm Records)
In case you're wondering why there's another feature on this MCD after such a long time since its original release let me explain it to you in a few words. Hollands Damnation Records unfortunately ceased to exist a while ago and in order to give this brilliant PENTACLE material a proper US release (as well) Dark Realm Records picked up on it recently and re-issued it with some improvements. If you already read Steven's review above, I suppose I don't have to talk about the excellent material once more, as it speaks for itself and easily blows away most of the stuff that's out there these days! But this new version not only has a better quality back cover, it also comes up with the additional bonus track 'Soul's Blood', which previously was only available on the vinyl split 10" with Germany's DESASTER, "Desaster In League With Pentacle" back in 2000. This way all of you CD maniacs will finally also get a chance to hear that brilliant PENTACLE tune as well (and justice for all, hehe...)! So, if you - for one reason or another - missed out on the European version of "Ancient Death" make sure to finally get yourself a copy of this one here as it, without a doubt, features PENTACLE's best work yet! www.darkrealmrecords.net
