Pagan Altar are one of the most complete and mystical bands to have emerged from the NWOBHM movement. Mixing 70’s proto-doom elements with English folk, hard rock and heavy metal, they wrote some of the most grandiose songs of the genre.
Cauchemar is a heavy metal band founded in 2007 in Montreal, Canada.
