5 stars OK... Norway has something to say in our beloved Prog World... listen to them carefully... they really know what to porpuse...

This was the first album I heard from Pagan's Mind and I really get stick to the band and now I have all their albums... OK... is really sad that too many people don't even know the band... is a shame... ´cause this is a "must have" for sure...

This guys use somekind of alien thematics... stargates, divinity entities that are like gods and speak to us or something like that... but the music... it is something like prog-power-metal... heavily influenced by Dream Theater... they even use a couple of references to some songs from the DT guys ("Entrance to Infinity" rings any bell?)... so... if you like DT... you have to hear this... is not a copy, just that is evident the influence...

The quality of the musicians is impressive... they manage to drive a metal sound with very fresh keyboards that works for the ambience and sometimes making nice and melodic solos ala "Kevin Moore early days"... the drums, the heavy riffs, the melodic solos, everything seems to fit in... they don't try to be the fastest, the thoughest, the heaviest... just show they are on the level of whatever prog-metal band out there... and the voice... this is for you if you like DT without James Labries voice... This guy is more a metal singer... with a huge range of pitch...

The production, the concept of the album, the sound and the songwriting... everything speaks from itself... a must wanted... you will love to be on this strange little journey through the skies... great to see that in Norway they have inspiration to achieve something new in this "cliché" world that we live on the now-a-days in prog rock... five stars... for me.. is the best of Pagans Mind...
