Product Information

All vocals in English.

“6 stars” – Hans Pokora

Paternoster, that UFO of a rock album released unceremoniously on a custom-pressed CBS Austria long player in 1972, is the stuff of legend. It’s been known to the rock collecting elite since the 1980s, when it was first rediscovered, and it quickly became one of those rock records, the records you hear about only if you know someone who knows someone with a copy, much like Damon’s Song of a Gypsy.

Gothic organs and scorching fuzz guitar punctuated by wailing vocals detailing visceral, Bosch-like images and all carried by enveloping bass with mixed-well-too-loud-and-thankfully-so drums.

Includes download card for WAV files of the entire album and a digital version of the booklet with the story of this mysterious album, told for the first time, in English and German.
