Editorial Message

Truth be told - I seem to say that a lot - I'm not much of a Pentagram fan. I've never consistently sported facial hair more than a day or two, have never owned a pair of bellbottoms, and maybe smoke weed once a year tops. Sure, I know their importance, just like I do with just about every cover we do, but that doesn't mean I care to actively listen to 'em (or any cover we've done, for that matter). But, I also know two more crucial things: 1) a lot of you lot out there love Pentagram, and 2) Bobby Liebling makes for great reading. And, right on the money, we deliver with that second point.

Our man-about-town Daragh Markham sat down transatlantically with crazy old Bobby and got one of the most bonkers interviews you're likely to read in this mag - and I say this having gotten loads of waffle from black metal bands for these past ten years. It's electric, eye-opening reading, and I couldn't be prouder of the job that Daragh's done here. It almost makes me want to (finally) become a Pentagram fan...almost. On that note, I'm out of here: "It's been real" and it's gonna get realer. Look out below!
