My label, Temple of Mystery is extremely delighted of announcing that we have sealed a pact with NWOBHM/Doom legends PAGAN ALTAR to release the LP/CD and cassette version of their final album, "The Room of Shadows" on August 24th, 2017.

A rare video of a 1984 live show was unearthed for the occasion!

Pagan Altar are one of the originators of doomy NWOBHM, mixing their 70’s influences into occult-tinged heavy metal. Alongside bands like Witchfinder General and Legend, their very own unique breed of mystical doom metal was unfortunately sunk into obscurity after no interest were shown from labels. Despite that, the timelessness of their music ultimately prevailed as doom-obsessed fanatics kept Pagan Altar's music alive over two and a half decades by trading their self-titled demo cassette and even bootlegging it. After receiving so much interest from the underground scene, the original master tapes were re-released in 1998 and re-christened Volume 1. The band then reformed in 2004 and released two albums of re-recorded materials - namely "Lords of Hypocrisy" and "Mythical and Magical". These two records proved to be the best and most exciting releases of the genre, and brought the band to international attention. They have since played numerous shows, traveling ashore to Canada and the United States, as well as everywhere in Europe. The songs for the long awaited "The Room of Shadows" were originally written back in 2004-2005, and the album was set to be released as "Never Quite Dead" in 2014… until the tragic passing of their beloved frontman Terry Jones, who had been bravely battling cancer for a year prior. The album will thus be released in homage to this true gentleman, who was well loved by his treasured family and fans.

Having being heavily postponed for various reasons, the recordings of this album were completely re-done with Alan Jones on guitar, and former Pagan Altar members Diccon Harper on bass and Andy Green on drums. "The Room of Shadows" picks up where Mystical and Magical left, and admirers of their previous works will be pleased to hear that this album is just as timeless, with its epic riffs and enchanting, poetic macabre lyrics of olde, plunging the album in an aura of somber allure.

The Room of Shadows will be their fourth and final album but their legacy is sure to reverberate for eternity.

There will also be a release party at the Wings of Metal Festival:
Alan Jones, Diccon Harper and Andy Green, under the moniker "Time Lord" will be paired with session members Brandon Radigan (vocals - Magic Circle) and Andres Arango (second guitar - Cauchemar, Metalian), to play a special release party/tribute to Terry in Montreal at the Wings of Metal show on September 9th, 2017.

Pre-orders for Pagan Altar – "Room of Shadows" (TEMPLE-005) will be available in early July at www.templeofmystery.ca

Of course, NWN will be distributing the album once it's out!

Fuuuuuck yes. And fuck yes to Radigan doing vocals for the release party. Here's to hoping they don't shy away from doing a special show with a guest vocalist every so often.

If I read correctly, everything was re-recorded except for Terry's vocals, which will be used as is. Someone named "Jessica Jones" on Pagan Altar's Facebook says that anyway.
