Pentagram Chile

PENTAGRAM was formed in 1985 by Anton Reisenegger (vocals, lead guitar) and Juan Pablo Uribe (rhythm guitar), two teenagers whose main interests were underground metal and alcohol. Influenced by the likes of SLAYER, VENOM, KREATOR and POSSESSED, the pair started writing songs in Reisenegger's bedroom until their live debut on December 28th, 1985 with Eduardo Topelberg of CHRONOS helping out on drums.

The band spent most of 1986 rehearsing and perfecting their sound, until recording their first demo tape in January 1987. With Topelberg now in the band as an official member and Reisenegger handling bass duties in the studio, the "Demo I" included three tracks, "Fatal Predictions", "Demoniac Possession" and "Spell of the Pentagram", the first two of which were later released as PENTAGRAM's infamous 7" single by Switzerland's Chainsaw Murder Records.

Bands
Erben Der Schöpfung

Since Oliver Falk was looking for a second emotional outlet for his compositions besides his band Weltenbrand, the idea of "Erben der Schöpfung" - a Gothic/EBM project - came about .
In 1998 and 1999, there were discussions with potential band members but unfortunately nobody was able to participate due to time constraints. Soon it became apparent that he would need a female vocalist. Due to that fact, Oliver Falk started looking for vocal support and soon found someone. Sabine Dünser immediately put her heart and soul into it. Hence, the originally planned formation of Erben der Schöpfung as a two-piece was realised. Oliver Falk composed the remaining songs for the planned album "Twilight" on which Pete Streit was supposed to support one of the songs with a guitar part. This turned out to be such a good match that Pete soon became a permanent band member.
