Finally available again soon!! After being unavailable for years we are more than proud to present the very first recordings from the mighty and legendary Pagan Altar dating back to 1978!
The first two tracks showcase the bands more straight forward sound in the form of Highway Cavalier and The Time Lord. Both of which after 1000 plus listens still raise the hairs on yer neck. The remaining tracks are the more Doom oriented numbers (Judgement of the Dead,The Black Mass and Reincarnation)that would appear years later on their 1982 Demo.
This will come with new artwork(shown above)issued in gatefold sleeve with photos of the 1978 lineup and lyric sheet. If you missed it originally come hear the first rumblings of the hooded figures dressed in black.
Pressing now and ready soon in black vinyl!
The Lamp of Thoth, what you can say about them? There is quite simply no one like them. Unhinged? Maybe. Eccentric? Possibly. Inebriated? Frequently.
Over three years in the making this finally is in pressing mode and will be done shortly. This ep features new studio versions of three old demo tracks, (Skull Fuel, An Oath Sworn on the Ashlar Stone and The Boggard)Dark World (Saint Vitus cover done the bands own way)and three additional tracks(They Dance, Me Man Me Drink and Drinking Song) that simply defy description.
Come hear tales of Deranged Alchemy, Clandestine Occult Rituals and of course heavy drinking as only Heavy Metal can provide.
No Guarantees of anything except metalheads will have fists in the air and a new classic for their shelves while politcally correct types will leave with misty eyes and hurt feelings.
Over 40 minutes of darkness and abuse from the Lamp of Thoth, there is quite simply, no one like them.
