This week is even more dismal than the last, with the new releases being far from notable - with one exception.
The Best of Week 15, 2011:
Pentagram: Last Rites
Legendary American metallers Pentagram bring back their classic, Sabbath-inspired sound - as well as long-time guitarist Victor Rgiffin - on Last Rites. The band's first studio album in seven years, Last Rites is certainly not groundbreaking but will surely please all fans of the old school.
