The groundwork was laid out a long time ago. It was back in the 80's where they wrote the skeleton for this album. It was shelved for many years until the early 2000's. With the constant demand from die hard Pagan Altar fans and the well received "Volume 1" (aka Judgement Of The Dead) CD release back in 1998, the band decided to create another amazing album, but with all of the bells and whistles that didn't exist back in the 80's. It seemed almost impossible, but it was yet another masterpiece! It carried a similar formula as the first album, but more epic and diverse. Sonically this is where the band wanted to be after all these years. The re-issue is digitally re-mastered and comes with a very nice booklet with a story and band photos.
