Cruz del Sur music is proud to present “The Lords of Hypocrisy”: this is the band’s new studio album after many years of inactivity during which the band seemed destined to be put to sleep. Luckily instead, “The Lords of Hypocrisy” is the result of the great feedback received by Pagan Altar during this stint in musical limbo, a new chapter in their unique sound.
After the release of the cd “Volume I” in 1998, the band was pushed by a consistent number of enthusiast fans to also release another album, supposed to follow their first work. The impossibility to resurrect the old-recorded tracks only conserved on old tapes spoiled by time forced the band to completely re-record the materials, although it was impossible to reunite the full original line-up for such an important task.
In year 2004, the band entered “Oracle Studios” – the modern heirs of the mighty “Pagan studios” – to lay down tracks for material that the band had written between ’78 and ’83… it really sounds so actual after many years of oblivion!
Delicate passages introduce a riff-driven marriage of vocal harmonies and lead-breaks able to take the listener through more reflective paths than other average musical attempts. Beside the usual dark themes, “The Lords of Hypocrisy” also contains the band’s personal point of view on society and religion, delivered with rich and strong themes abundantly interspersed within the tracks. In the band’s own words:
“Figures of Religion that preach to society, standing upright and tall / Screaming from the pulpit on Sunday morning / To save you from the fall/ Can you hear them? / Can you see them? Don’t believe them; /don’t believe what they say!”
Pre-orders will be available starting in the first week of January, so come back and check for more information soon.

And if this was not enough, we have also reached BIBLE OF THE DEVIL’s guitarist Nate Perry to ask a few questions regarding this new, punishing album:
“For the love of thugs and fools” seems to be a tribute to the eerie world of rock and rollers and metal heads. We certainly know that BOTD has hit the road enough to be able to tell us a thing or two about them. Why did you come up with such an album concept?
Nate Perry – There’s a saying among people who write: “write what you know.” On this album, most of these song lyrics stay away from anything fantasy-based, which is pretty typical in metal and something we’ve dabbled in as well. But generally, when we’re working on a record, the first song we finish tends to set the tone for the rest of the writing.

Originally released in 1996, THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG self-titled debut album has been out of print for a long time.
This seminal heavy metal record was firstly only self-released on CD; it was then re-released twice on CD and vinyl by Miskatonic and Metal Supremacy, always in limited editions, which sold-out very quickly.
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is now proud to make this release newly available, this time in an elegant and classy matt-varnished gatefold edition which comes with lyrics and a dedicated artwork created specifically by Eyedolatry Design to render homage to LeBrocquy’s “The Táin” original illustration. This edition has been specifically cut to 45 RPM for a better sound-rendering, and constitutes the final edition of a great record which is finally on offer again for the fans.
The release date is set for the 30th of March; pre-orders will start on the 1st of March on Cruz Del Sur Music Store
