Pagan's Mind

Specializing in progressive power metal, Skien, Norway's Pagan's Mind was formed by core members Nils K. Rue (vocals), Stian Kristoffersen (drums) and guitarist Thorstein Aaby in 2000. Eventually rounding out to a five-piece, the band released its first album, Infinity Divine, that same year. The album was a success critically and in the prog/power metal underground, and was followed by the Fredrik Nordström produced second album, Celestial Entrance. The follow up was an even bigger success, making waves outside the band's home nation, and prompted the signing to Limb Music, and the re-release of Infinity Divine, this time containing bonus tracks and re-recorded tracks in 2004. In 2003, founding member Aaby left the group, and -- tragically -- passed away in 2007. For the band's third album, Pagan's Mind decided on a concept record, and released Enigmatic : Calling, in 2005. The album was a top twenty hit in Norway, and helped land the band spots on some prominent festival line-ups, including ProgPower Europe, Sweden Rock Festival, and Rjukan Rock. The band spent the latter part of 2005 headlining a tour of England. In late 2007, Pagan's Mind released their fourth album, God's Equation. ~ Chris True

Jørn Viggo Lofstad has been their guitarist for some time now. This bio is SO poorly written and desperately needs an update.

I want to enjoy the music, but I'm so distracted by the Stargate on the cover...

Celestial Entrance is a real work of art in my opinion!

My mistake, Enigmatic: Calling was the name of my favourite album.
Report as inappropriate
I thought Enigmatic Mission was the better of the two Stargate Albums.

I now have most of their albums now and they don't dissapoint at all. Can't wait to get the newest one. These guys are a Metal Dream, a landscape background of mind emersive twists and turns that seem to lead to some infinite tapestry of the cosmos. In other words, Great stuff!

So yeah, I got their "Gods Equation" album and it's pretty amazing. I guess I'll be buying up their albums on amazon.

Every Pagan's Mind album I've heard has been great, and they don't get boring with multiple listens. Pandora used to have more of their albums, but, no matter, Amazon stocks them and they are buy-worthy.

Are you tired of the Weeping F**got crying out for attention? Well I have the solution. The key is to "Out-Troll" the Troll. Willow and Moomoo spam about Godsuck, so lets all spam about our favorite bands. Once we have a good fifty people spamming and trolling, Willow will become powerless and fade back into his hole and continue wacking it to Rodsmack posters. Then we can stop OUR trolling and get back to a clean, Willow-free environment. Who's with me?!!!

I hate that they don't have God's Equation on here...

Stellar band. I own the albums, Celestial Enterance, Enigmatic : Calling, and God's Equation. Good god, the band is just extremely creative and talented. I'm surprised Pandora only has this one album.

Having just encountered them today I shall heartily add my text to the other folks clamoring for Pandora to put the rest of their stuff up.

Kickass band. Prog and classic metal feel, gotta love it. I wish they'd add some Adagio already.

Awesome band!!! All their stuff should be on Pandora!!!

Besides the Demon that pops up in the song of Epic Question, Not bad. A blend of Dream Theater and King Diamond; Like it.
Similar to Eidolon.

Love the vocals,and the Dream Theatre style of Leads played with synth. I may buy the Celestial Enttrance album but I'd like to hear more first.
