Enigmatic : Calling

"Enigmatic : Calling" is Pagan's Mind's 3rd attempt to convince music journalists, that high quality progressive metal can come from Norway ... and have they succeeded? Sure, once more they have created a great metal album of a very high standard.

On offer this time is 65 minutes of music - split into 11 tracks - and Pagan's Mind style is still a nice cross between power metal and progressive metal, dominated by Jörn Viggo Lofstad's excellent guitar work and Nils K. Rue's equally great vocals, but it is not like the rest of the band leaves much to be desired for. Add a superb sound - produced by Jörn Viggo Lofstad and mixed by Fredrik Nordstrøm - and you have all of the ingredients you need for a great album.

If you shouldn't know Pagan's Mind, then I suggest you check this cool album out. If you like power metal with a strong progressive edge, then I am sure you will find much pleasure with this album, and if you like me loves the first two albums from these Norwegians, then I am sure you'll love this one as well ...
