For the heavy metal fans

This song is from their latest cd coming out on Jan 15th, 4th cd of this band. Also to note they come from Norway of all places?.

Eh, that was all right. Not my type of metal, but still good.

Yes I did, and I immediately thought of Strong Bad and D,E words and Norway!

Every now and then I regress back into my Metal years.

Pagan's Mind will be included in those playlists.

Heh, I only knew two people who had ever heard of Pagan's Mind before this. I do like their sound, but it gets repetitive.. very repetitive. It's kind of like AC/DC, I can only listen to two songs in a row at one time.

Wow....if the band members ever learn to play instruments and the lead singer gets voice lessons and they learn to lip sync for the video better..................then they just might get to be classified as mediocre.

At least they have decent instruments. Korg Tritons are pretty good... I've been wanting a Triton Extreme or a M3 for a while now.

Well i thought the vocalist was quite talented, i think the use of electronic enhancements during the song took away some of the talent he actually has. I did not notice if the lead singer was making errors while lip singing LOL.

I was actually being harsh to make it more funny. I did notice strong mismatch of voice and lips though. I'm not sure if it was bad lip sync for the video of if the audio/video of that file was not in synch properly.

I really wasn't too impressed with his voice, but yes, it was hard to actually hear his voice over the loud instruments and electronic processing.


Or....it could just be that I'm not a big fan of death metal.

This will never be truly accepted in the Metal world, due to the keyboard. No true metal band has a keyboard in it, never has, never will. Song is pretty good, it will join my iPod interval rotation to help keep my pace high.

Edit: I just realized who these guys sound like, especially the lead singer; Queensryche.

You can here his voice better here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=DgMAxb...eature=related

No. No. Definitely not.

By the way KT, Pagan's Mind isn't death metal.. they're just kinda weird. I agree with Gear Jammer, the electronic voice thing doesn't make me happy, but they do use it a lot.
