Warthur
Blending the fresh new sound of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal with traditional doom metal sounds like a tall order, but somehow Pagan Altar accomplished this on their infernal debut, circulated widely as Volume 1 until it got a remastered treatment under the title of Judgement of the Dead. Whatever you call it, though, it's an intriguing doom metal expedition, with some keyboard use that doesn't quite hit Atomic Rooster levels of intricacy but nonetheless evokes the spirit of the 1970s just as Terry Jones' vocals call to mind the NWOBHM's peak era. Coming too late for the original wave of early doom pioneers like Sabbath, a smidgen too late to ride the NWOBHM wave, and slightly too early to really benefit from the first doom metal revival, Pagan Altar's original album may be displaced in time but we can thank our infernal masters that we have it back with us now.
