I'm generally wary of rock docs—it feels like we're getting more and more dull movies about musicians made by superfans who might not have the greatest grasp of narrative arc or editing—but Last Days Here was emotionally affecting from the moment Liebling appeared on-screen. His history of drug abuse has undercut his decades of attempts to achieve fame and fortune with Pentagram, a doom-metal act from the D.C. area that he founded in 1971; though the band has yet to break big, it's earned a loyal cult following and something resembling "legendary" status.
Today's 12 O'Clock Track is "Forever My Queen," from a demo Pentagram recorded in 1973.
The song's heavy riffs make it clear why so many metal fans can't talk about this band without launching into excited rants. Listen below and check out the trailer to Last Days Here. Then you're probably going to want to spend the rest of the day listening to everything Pentagram has ever recorded.
