Day of Reckoning is the second album by Pentagram. It was released in 1987 by Napalm Records. It was re-released by Peaceville Records in 1993, and in 1996 as part of a two-disc split CD with Relentless, and then again in 2005 as a digipak CD. Joe Hasselvander originally played drums on only one track, "Burning Savior," with Stuart Rose recording the drums on all the rest. Hasselvander re-recorded drums on all tracks (except "Burning Savior") for the 1993 Peaceville reissue.[2] The original mixes with Rose on drums only appear on the Napalm Records LP version and an original cassette edition made in Canada, and have never appeared on CD.
