Pentagram is fronted by Vishal Dadlani with Randolph Correia on guitars, Clyde D’souza on guitars, Papal Mane on bass and Shiraz Bhattacharya on drums. All of whom have recently been actively involved in the Bollywood music business.

They released the song, It’s OK, It’s All Good in 2007 on their own record label, Pentagram Music. The first single off this album “Voice” won the Song Of The Year and vocalist Vishal was awarded Vocalist Of The Year at the Jack Daniel’s Annual Indian Rock Awards. “Voice” also received considerable airplay on VH1 India.

The band released their latest studio album in March 2011. It was named Bloodywood, representing the anti-thesis to the mainstream. The band also performed at Sympulse, the annual cultural festival of Symbiosis Centre for Management Studies, Pune. In the same year, episodes of Penta TV which featured behind-the-scenes videos of the band’s shows and tours were added to their site. In 2013, they recorded the song Be a Hero, the Star Movies Action theme for Star Movies Action.

After performing for two decades, the band had announced a sudden indefinite hiatus late 2014, disappointing long-term fans across the country. The announcement followed their highly-acclaimed MTV Unplugged episode and an incendiary gig at the Red Bull Tour Bus show in October that year. Loyal fans had been keenly awaiting any sense of a reunion ever since. While Pentagram remained friends, these requests were brushed off by the band with no hints of a comeback. As suddenly, the band announced their return to the scene in which they have always been frontrunners, with the announcement that they are to play a gig within mere weeks. Ardent fans have since been looking to the band for cues that they are here to stay.
