Shadow Kingdom Records is now offering the newly reissued Judgement of the Dead from cult N.W.O.B.H.M doom band PAGAN ALTAR. Originally released in 1982, Shadow Kingdom Records will stock North American shelves with this classic on January 8, 2013. Until then, fans can order the release exclusively through Shadow Kingdom Records.

For a digital copy and free stream of the album, visit the label’s bandcamp page here: http://shadowkingdomrecords.bandcamp.com/album/judgement-of-the-dead

Physical copies are available at http://shadowkingdomrecords.com/

Shadow Kingdom’s Tim McGrogan had this to say about the album:

“Back in 1982 PAGAN ALTAR released this N.W.O.B.H.M. masterpiece and almost immediately this album went into obscurity. They have been by far the most overlooked band in the history of heavy metal music. It’s amazing that they’ve finally pulled it all together for being virtually non-existent for nearly 15 years. They deserve all of the success and recognition they’re getting today and much, much more! In the late 90’s they came out of the woodwork and put this out on their own label and it was mistakenly called “Volume 1”. The extra track was an acoustic track which was just called “Acoustics” at the time. This is the first time this album will be released in all its glory. The correct title “Judgement of the Dead” and updated acoustic song title as well. Also, this is the original artwork that was released back in 1982 which has never been seen before until now! We’ve re-mastered the CD to sonically preserve its antique feel. It comes with a very nice booklet that includes a story and old band photos. If there ever was such a thing as a perfect album, this would be it! There is nothing more satisfying than the sound of this record. If you’ve never heard of this band or album, think of Black Sabbath and Jethro Tull and you’re almost there. They take music to a whole new level.”

Stone Says: You absolutely MUST check out PAGAN ALTAR! This is tried and true N.W.O.B.H.M. and it’s Classic Metal; this is the stuff that helped build the foundation for the Metal we all love and follow today! Just amazing Metal from a pioneering Metal band. I’ve become an instant fan of PAGAN ALTAR after my very first listen to The Time Lord. I have been Metal schooled once again by a legendary Metal band and it’s PAGAN ALTAR. Metal be thy name.
