Preeminent axe magazine Guitar World has just shared a new stream of the remastered version of PENTAGRAM‘s classic track “Lazy Lady,” taken from the forthcoming Relapse reissue of First Daze Here. Hear “Lazy Lady” now at this location.

PENTAGRAM‘s most popular and influential material since its Relapse resurrection fifteen years ago can be found in First Daze Here, a collection of the band’s earliest works that has been out-of-print for years and will now finally see a new reissue via Relapse this coming June. Its companion First Daze Here Too, a 22-track collection of unreleased studio recordings and live rehearsals from the early ’70s, will also see its first reissue since going out of print several years ago.Both reissues have been newly remastered and include in-depth liner notes from founding PENTAGRAM member / original drummer Geof O’Keefe along with gorgeously revitalized layouts. CD Version of First Daze Here includes a vinyl-shaped CD featuring the two newly remastered versions of the infamous Macabre 45! The original mix of the long-lost 45 will also see its first-ever vinyl pressing for this reissue, and is available in the deluxe First Daze Here / First Daze Here Too bundle or along with the Bone White / Gold Merge LP of First Daze Here.

The remastered version of “Forever My Queen” is also available for streaming below:

First Daze Here and First Daze Here Too will be released this June 17 on 2CD/LP/Digital and 2CD/2xLP/Digital respectively.
