Detailed Description
In 1976, from the mysterious English countryside, emerged Pagan Altar - a band whose arcane doom rumblings have changed the face of the genre. Despite their infamous debut album, Judgement of the Dead, taking decades to be officially released, their short-yet-bright star finally took off in the mid 2000s when the band unleashed The Time Lord, Lords of Hypocrisy, and Mythical & Magical, ending decades of setbacks and unintentional silence. Today, each record in their discography is fanatically hoarded by fans and damn near impossible to find - unless you are willing to depart with a large chunk of your wallet. Following the untimely passing of iconic frontman Terry Jones in 2015, it took several years for the band's final album, The Room of Shadows, to be released. Acclaimed internationally as a befitting swan-song, the album was lovingly issued by Canadian label Temple of Mystery Records. The release catapulted the band back into the limelight, encouraging the label to undertake the task of reissuing their highly sought-after back catalog on vinyl, CD, and cassette tape formats. It also brought the band back to the stage in tribute to their fallen frontman, with Magic Circle's Brendan Radigan taking up the vocal role with aplomb. Second in the series of reissues are Mythical & Magical and The Time Lord, set for international release on December 4th via Temple of Mystery. Mythical & Magical features remastered audio, with the vinyl edition including two discs with an etch on side D, and features an original drawing by Karmazid as the gatefold.
