gebs I don't remember how I found these guys, but after one spin, I was hooked on their catchy riffs, harmonized leads, and progressive doom vibes. Favorite track: Dance Of The Vampires.

Talon Sullivan What a haunting and beautiful last chapter to Pagan Altars legacy. I have nothing but love for this band and they have tapped into something that is truly magical and has made me happier for having been able to witness it. Favorite track: The Room Of Shadows.

dibase Of course this is not the kind of doom metal that modern style fans are used to listening to. This is what it used to be. But damn it, how cool it is. After listening to the bandcamp for a couple of months, the magic voice of Terry Jones (R.I.P.), I could not resist buying the entire discography. This vile vocals give me more emotion than Ozzy. As this diamond did not fire in its time. Thank you for these magical tracks. want to put the album on repeat and open the Charles Dickens book Favorite track: The Portrait Of Dorian Gray  .

    Pagan Altar are one of the most complete and mystical bands to have emerged from the NWOBHM movement. Mixing 70’s proto-doom elements with English folk, hard rock and heavy metal, they wrote some of the most grandiose songs of the genre on the sinister "Volume 1" - and more recently, "Lords of Hypocrisy" and "Mythical and Magical" - influencing a whole generation of doom-obsessed fanatics.

    Originally written thirteen years ago, "The Room of Shadows" has gone through various shapes until finally being completed two years after the tragic passing of their beloved frontman Terry Jones, who had been bravely battling cancer for a year prior. This album is not only Pagan Altar’s last record, it also Terry’s very last vocal performance, and picks up where Mythical and Magical left. Admirers of their previous works will be pleased to hear that this album is just as timeless, with its epic hard rocking riffs and enchanting, poetic macabre lyrics of olde. …And thus closes the Pagan Altar legacy; which will be with us after forever.
