Pagan Altar are one of the most complete and mystical bands to have emerged from the NWOBHM movement. Mixing ’70s 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 & Magical – influencing a whole generation of doom-obsessed fanatics.
Originally written 17 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 & Magical left off. 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…
The Room of Shadows will be re-released as a double LP version (45 RPM) with extremely high quality sound (new master and lacquer by SST in Germany!) on both colored and black vinyl.
