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.
