Pagan's Mind

Pagan's Mind is a top-flight progressive metal band from Norway, having formed in 2000 and now three albums into their career. Despite the all-too-familiar influences (Dream Theater and a bit of early Queensryche), Pagan's Mind avoids the heard-it-all-before label by simply doing it right. Basically, the band delivers exactly what prog metal fans want, that being superior musicianship, a crystalline production, soaring vocals, and diverse songwriting. Every instrument is clearly heard and makes its presence felt, and every note is seemingly in the right place. Pagan's Mind is unquestionably among the best melodic progressive metal bands playing today.
