4 stars Pagan's Mind have already two wonderful albums, so this was really difficult to top with their next piece. God's Equation has the same style but is a little more oriented to the heavy side of the band, with more growling and heavy riffing?

A perfect balance between ambience synth, power metal riffing and soloing and a versatile singing with a wide range of notes is what you will hear here. The influences of other bands are less evident in this piece and the music moves along great through the whole album.

The recurrent themes are good to set the concept of the album, you will find many soloing and back to back between keyboards and guitars. A lot of double bass drums as well. All the songs fit well, having brief spaces with ambience synth that brings some air before the heavy parts takes the lead. There are no highlights in the album because all the songs work well together. "God's Equation" is OK to start, "Alien Kamikaze" is heavy enough and "Spirit Crusader" is odd enough to change the mood?

The inclusion of Hello Spaceboy of David Bowie is great. This prog-metal arrangement is quite good and fits great with the concept of the album. The cover art is good but I wonder what this guys have with naked girls with shining eyes... don't know...

If you like Prog Metal, you should try this. If you are not into a so metal oriented stuff, you can go back and pick Enigmatic: Calling, their previous album. 4 stars! great album!
