Progressive Power outfit Pagan's Mind continues to release great albums with their trademark sound. Their fourth opus, God's Equation, is the logical follow-up to 2005's Enigmatic Calling. With the same stable line-up, and the same approach, the Norwegian band might just be on everybody's mind once again this year.
As expected, out-worldly guitar solos dominate the record, along with neck-breaking rhythm changes and inspiring melodies. The atmospheric passages provided by the keys of Ronny Tegner keep the songs together once more. This time around, the musicians of Pagan's Mind seem to be reaching further into their abilities than ever before. Most songs are more creative than usual. But what makes this band so special is their heavy metal vibe all the way throughout, courtesy of the guitar sound of Jörn Viggo Löfstad. Who can resist so much heaviness as displayed on 'United Alliance'? Above all though, their memorable melodies are the reason why these guys are truly mesmerizing.
Another force of Pagan's Mind is that their progressive approach is unlike any other band. The versatility showcased on the David Bowie cover 'Hallo Spaceboy' is a nice twist in the album's structure. This tune is one hell of a ride, with singer Nils K. Rue really having fun.
Do not pass on God's Equation. This is one of 2007's must buys. The title track alone is worth the money. Everything Pagan's Mind tried to achieve on this album came through splendidly. It is diversified, catchy, heavy and progressive.
