PaternosterPaternoster, 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.

Paternoster is a terrifying album, a collection of songs that traverses the sublime, and thus necessitates a bowel-loosening acceptance of beauty too complicated to merely admire, bowing under the weight of a tremendous atmosphere, accentuated by Gothic organs and scorching fuzz guitar, punctuated by wailing vocals detailing visceral, Bosch-like images, and carried by enveloping bass and syncopated, mixed-well-too-loud-and-thankfully-so drums.

This is the first reissue of the album done with the band’s involvement, and was assembled with oversight by bandleader Franz Wippel and Thomas Wisser, the son of Franz’ musical partner and Paternoster bassist Haimo Wisser.

– Custom made, “mini-LP,” tip-on CD packaged with perfect-bound booklet packaged in O card.
– The 66-page booklet tells the story of this mysterious band, for the first time, with many unpublished photos. English and German text.

“First official reissue of the Austrian prog-psych masterpiece, a LP so rare in its original form it sells for nearly $10,000 when a copy surfaces. An indescribable trip influenced by Pink Floyd, Soft Machine and Procol Harum, but greater than the sum of its parts. All vocals in English. 6 stars.” – Hans Pokora
