Pagan Altar

Britains best kept secret - one of the very finest NWOBHM and Doom bands ever. All three albums are masterpieces and should be puchased at the first avaliable chance.

Plus more shit.
Cry of the Banshee
Satan's Henchmen
Pagan Altar

took me a little while to get into these guys, but like a lot of great things, it grew on me and over the past year or so I've been listening to them a fair bit. Cry of the Banshee is a killer song, and I love the lead tone on it btw. The vocals still annoy me a bit though

I've always loved Pagan Altar, all three albums are indeed amazing and I think there's a new one coming on the way

I really like Vol.1. The rest are maybe a bit too traditional heavy metal for me, but they have their moments too.

I only have Lords of Hypocrisy but it's complete ownage. Yes, the vocals are unintentionally hilarious and I actually "lol" aloud to myself at certain parts, but they somehow work and Alan Jones is definately one of the greatest guitarists I have ever heard.

And I'm completely pumped as I just ordered Mythical & Magical a few days ago.

Edit: New album?! Fill me in with all details asap, Kep.

Amazing band.

The vocals fit perfectly and I don't see why so many people pass them off as the weakest part of the band.

Some of the most talented and amazing leads that have graced this genre. The build up in Satans Henchmen? Immense.

Correct. Also, the guitar assault in the 10 minute epic Armageddon is stupendous.

I remember someone mentioning that they have been working on new material or something in the Hellride forums, can't find it right now

Most likely it was Richard Walker as he is in Pagan Altar now... you could probably find some information from Pagan Altar's forums, but one has to be registered there to get to read them and I'm too lazy to do so hahha

If they are, I will most likely get it ASAP.

Mythical and Magical... so hard to describe, so unlike anything else. I classify it as "Pagan Metal" as it doesn't really fit into anything else. NWOBHM fits pretty loosely, Doom is in there, and obviously folk elements.

The Sorcerer is my favorite song on M&M.

So pumped, my copy of M&M should be arriving any day now, and I have yet to hear any PA outside of LoH album.
