found these whilst browsing youtube

Pagan Altar is a doom metal band formed in 1978 in Brockley, England. Alongside Witchfinder General, they are one of the few “NWOBHM” bands to play doom metal. Although they were ignored by mainstream metal media during the early and mid 80s, their influence did not emerge until after the 80s incarnation had broken up.

Their gigs were characterized by moody, epic and heavy music interpreted with highly visual stage aspect which accented their interest for occult themes. Pagan Altar’s only release from that era was independent, self-released, self-titled album which was in later years often bootlegged.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS finally someone who likes Pagan Altar! Fucking Volume 1 is a masterpiece and Lords of Hypocrisy is right up there with the fucking awesome. Way ahead of their time really when they came out and their songs still are badass today more than these faggot doom bands out now with their wannabe doom. Witchfinder General is great also.

Well like most doom bands except for like Sabbath/Witchfinder/Flower Travellin Band from that period, were forgotten and weren't getting any attention and just became buried. I think they came out with a book, you can read I think 10 pages on their website and its fucking Boss.

I like their fairly obvious Sabath influence.

One of my favorite bands, Mythical and Magical is their best in my opinion.

Pretty much all their stuff.

I would just get either a torrent or blogspot download and listen to everything they have out. Only three albums, so it shouldn't be too much.
