Early Recordings From Pagan Altar To Be Reissued As "The Time Lord"

Shadow Kingdom Records has set September 11th as the date for worldwide release of "The Time Lord" EP from 70s cult NWOBHM act Pagan Altar. Consisting of remastered material from as far back as 1978, "The Time Lord" has five tracks which are posted below. Shadow Kingdom Records owner Tim McGrogan had this to say about "The Time Lord":

Pagan Altar is arguably the very best band in the entire world that has flown under the radar for far too many years. It gives me great pleasure to announce this amazing EP release. This N.W.O.B.H.M. band is still going strong as they have wrote a mountain of music that has since been released over the years on its very own label. These are the oldest known recordings to exist dating all the way back to 1978! These are demo recordings and they didn't properly record a few of these other songs until later on.

These demo recordings are the birth of what I believe is one of the very best bands ever existing. This album has atmosphere written all over it and there's no one that remotely sounds like Pagan Altar. Bands and people today are just discovering these sounds for the first time and now they influence a ton of music that's being written today in the metal world. The CD version has been re-mastered to scrub and preserve this recording to the best possible sound that we can deliver. This has not been released on vinyl until now.

Shadow King Records is currently streaming "The Black Mass" at this location, or you may listen to it below in the player.
