PENTARK /// is a Brussels based punk-postrock trio that delivers powerful and highly tense music. Building its songs upon improvised raw material and constructing them into original and excitingly structured compositions, Pentark delivers beautifully agressive music, which is furious and nostalgic at the same time. For fans of Shellac, Codeine, Shipping News, Slint and Karate.


"It’s all well and good to be making beautifully novel pieces of sound construction, but there is something unavoidably charming about a rock band that grooves perfectly, intuitively, together. Belgian band Pentark seem to have the kind of ensemble dynamic that lends itself to both tight composition and loose, improvisatory chaos. read more here .... (Silent Ballet 7/10 - Marcus Whale)

"Ha Ha Ha! est un disque tendu, barré, bruitiste et empreint de nostalgie, qui laisse transparaître l'influence de Shellac et de Sonic Youth. Respect." (Le Vif)

"This record is highly recommended" (absolutepunk.net)

"Bij intensieve climaxen komt een stem uit de donkere dieptes waarin Pentark ons werpt, met als resultaat een artistieke kracht die vrij zeldzaam is in ons landje. Te beluisteren met de ogen gesloten, diverse stimuli binnen handbereik" (The Ticket)

“Cul Mine” might be the closest thing to Krautrock on Ha Ha Ha! but by the end it’s equal parts no-wave, Mono, and Neu, all set to a punkish tempo. (Read more) (Adequacy.net)

"En chemin vous rencontrerez des crescendos émotionnels enragés, des syncopes ingénieuses, des échos des Pixies et des morceaux qui racontent des histoires bien sombres, quoique propres à réveiller un mort." (L'agenda)

"Definitely for Shellac / Codein Fans. EVERYONE SHOULD GET THIS" (The Sirens Sound)

"Voer voor wie van explosieve muziek houdt. (Noise)rock zonder te verzanden in oeverloos lawaai". (Kinky Star Radio Show)(cd of the week)

"There’s an undoubtedly Touch and Go vibe to this band" (Silent Ballet - Marcus Whale)

"les membres du groupe Pentark prennent racines dans un sol fertile où poussent les meilleures plantes : Shellac, Mono, Tortoise, Sonic Youth ou My Bloody Valentine mûrissent ici, loin des serres industrielles et des produits de grande consommation. Tournés vers la noise et l'expérimentation, les morceaux du premier album de Pentark pénètrent avec fureur et passion à travers un mur du son où basse, batterie et guitare s'enflamment à la moindre incartade" (Conseil de la Musique)
