4 stars Pagan's Mind is a band I only discovered recently, but I'm loving them already. I bought "Celestial Entrance" first and loved it, after which I bought the other two. This one is their latest, and it's a strong album on its own.

Nothing new? Might be true, but you can say the same of a lot of bands. They all have their own sound, and if it sounds right, why change it? Sure, some bands make progression with either vocalist changes (ARENA, for example), or by playing a different kind of music (THE GATHERING, ANATHEMA). Personally, I think that Pagan's Mind doesn't have to change its sound. It's strong, mystical, powerful, and rocks like heaven.

I agree the songs kind of sound alike, but I have that with a lot of bands I'm not overly familiar with, including MAGENTA, YES and MARILLION.

Nils' voice is a strong point for me. I've really grown to love the guy. It's powerful, clear, and not with a strong accent like you'd expect. The close harmonies are a delight to listen to, as well. The strongest track on this album is "Resurrection" for me, at the moment. I keep listening to it.

The album in itself gets 4 stars from me. Any progmetal fan will likely like Pagan's Mind as a whole.

Yours, Tailscent
