Lulus:

Writing about Pagan Altar’s Mythical & Magical feels somewhat like writing an obituary for one of your nearest and dearest. I’ll start at the beginning; this album is worthy of the love and praise it receives. Widely considered to be Pagan Altar’s magnum opus, the alchemy at work on Mythical & Magical results in a splendour so vital and refined that the seekers and wanderers of the world would be well to take precious moments to sit with and bask in, surrounded by a strongly scented smoke as well as both inner and outer flame alight. Having mostly left behind the doom of their monolithic Judgement Of The Dead album what Pagan Altar instead offer here is a rarified form of 70’s hard rock imbued with folk magic leanings of Druidic Europe; a balance so adeptly struck that it becomes difficult to imagine that rock music could possibly sound any other way. At every turn and beneath every stone is a subtlety and awe inspiring beauty akin that which can be found in any gemstone or grain of sand when paid mindful attention; so poised and skilful are the performances that when things take a heavy turn, and they most certainly do, it arrives with the exhilarating thrill and confusion and jubilee of true, blood rushing danger and adventure. Above all, Pagan Altar weave stories and spells like no other - brooding, joyous, fiery, mournful, otherworldly and gorgeous. Mythical & Magical is a temple upon a landscape within which great truths are to be found. “The gentle throb of an ancient drum, no human ever made. Music only gods should hear, no human ever played.”
