Pentagram was initially formed in 1971 by Bobby Liebling (vocals) and Geof O'Keefe (drums) with Vincent McAllister on guitar and Greg Mayne on bass. After recording several demos throughout the mid-70’s, this line-up lasted until 1976. Much of the material that would be released decades later as "First Daze Here" was recorded by this original incarnation of the band.

Pentagram would then lay dormant until Liebling connected with Joe Hasselvander in 1978. Hasselvander was playing in a singer-less group consisting of himself (drums), Richard Kueht (guitar), Paul Trowbridge (guitar), and Marty Swaney (bass). Liebling soon joined and the group took on the Pentagram moniker as they began performing Liebling's material from the previous Pentagram line-up. After playing several shows and releasing a 7" single in 1979, personal differences consumed this line-up by the end of that same year.

In 1980, guitarist Victor Griffin and bassist Lee Abney had formed a band called Death Row in Morristown, TN. Griffin
then met Hasselvander and relocated Death Row to the northern Virginia area and began playing together. After the trio began rehearsals without a singer, Hasselvander introduced Griffin to Liebling. After only one jam session together, Liebling joined as vocalist for Death Row. Former Pentagram member Martin Swaney soon replaced Lee Abney on bass and the classic Death Row line up was forged. Following demos recorded in 1982 and 1983, Hasselvander left the band, Stuart Rose was chosen as his replacement, and the band changed their name to
Pentagram. Subsequently, the 82/83 Death Row demos, which had been packaged together under the title "All Your Sins," was then released as the first official Pentagram album in 1985... The debut was simply titled "Pentagram."

After recording their second album, "Day Of Reckoning" in 1987, the band folded yet again in 1988 when Griffin left for other opportunities on the west coast. In 1989, Greg Mayne (bass) returned and Randy Palmer (guitar) joined Liebling with the addition of Ted Feldman on guitar and Jon Cook on drums. The band was working towards recording a third album, but shortly after their first live performance, they imploded yet again.
