    Wow this looks fucking awsome! I've been on a Pagan altar-low lately, guess it's time to spin their albums and get in the mood again!

    I'm really digging the band The Gates Of Slumber, love the feel to their songs.

    Couple years late to the party there, but yeah they rule. You familiar with Karl's new project Wretch? It's sort of the phoenix that rose from the ashes of Gates of Slumber.

    I would just stick to The Gates of Slumber. The Wretch just didn't grab me at all and TGoS has plenty of good albums to listen to.

    I thought it was good and even better given the lyrical content/atmosphere behind it.

    Indeed! However the only album in my possession is the Conqueror album from 2008 and I love every song.

    Rituals of the Oak have just released their third album, cleverly titled "Mach III". It's quite a departure to their previous albums, a couple of songs will definitely take you by surprise. The production is fantastic, very strong songwriting and of Sabine's vocals are better than ever. There's also a very cool Fates Warning cover. It might take a few listens to fully appreciate it, but it's well worth it.

    Anyone want to recommend me some stuff similar to Solstice, Scald, and Doomsword?

    Just recently finished my collections on these guys and want more. I remember Nomad Son being similar (Think I have First Light on winyl) but they just arent as good as the others... which is probably unfair comparison in the first place.

    Did you ever get into Capille Ardiente?

    Also, if you took some of Doomsword's doom metal out:

    Also, the Official Pagan Altar FB page posted these. Pretty cool if you ask me.

    These pictures are the earliest photos of the very first band my dad put together with me. I suppose you could call it the genesis of Pagan Altar. This band was called Liquid Gas. (A very 70s name) and it was formed in 1973 when I was 11.The other members were sons and friends of people my dad worked with and were all a couple of years older than me. The pictures look like they were taken in 1974ish at Westminster boys club Nunhead where we rehearsed sometimes. We would rehearse on the weekend because the hall was closed all day and we had the run of the hall for as long as we wanted it. We would go in at about 9.00 o’clock on a Saturday morning and come out at about 11.00 o’clock that night. It was a long day but it certainly made me disciplined when it came to rehearsing.

    The band were playing all covers in the first couple of years because we were starting from scratch and although I had been playing since I was eight, I had never played in a band.

    Narcissus Complex, walking in the dark and March of the dead all came out of the later part of Liquid gas.

    As usual band members left and got replaced and the standard got a bit better as we went along. After Liquid gas had finally blown itself out (so to speak) we had a break of about 6 months then started again as Hydra.

    Why is Altar of Oblivion - Sinews of Anguish so hard to find on cd?

    I got mine and I hardly listen to it. I should probably change that, but I fucking love their 2nd album.
