While the band is working hard on the upcoming new album, these reissues kick off the collaboration between the British Doom Metal pioneers PAGAN ALTAR and Dying Victims Productions. Based on the beautifully crafted releases on Canada’s Temple of Mystery, these important recordings will finally return into circulation.

Originally recorded back in 1978-79, “The Time Lord” features Pagan Altar’s earliest recordings. Two of these flawlessly executed tracks are from a 24-track recording session, and the rest of the album are early, atmospheric versions of songs that were later re-recorded on Judgement of the Dead. This LP includes a long-lost, never-heard before version of “Night Rider”, from the same era as the other songs! This is pure doom metal sorcery.

Originally recorded in 1982 during the NWOBHM movement, Pagan Altar’s debut album, Judgement of the Dead, is a timeless classic of macabre heavy/doom metal centered around magic, witchcraft, and the occult. This holy grail album is one of the purest, most magical records that were ever written, and had a tremendous influence on the heavy/doom metal scene.
