Pagan's Mind - 20 May 2011 (Underworld)



It was only four years ago when, while I was going through my local CD shop in Paris, I came across God's Equation by Pagan's Mind. While I have to admit that I only bought the CD because of the artwork, I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied when I heard the music. And now, four years later, here they are, performing at the Underworld for the second time in their career. Supporting them: progressive power metalers Neonfly. With the news of, them signing a record deal with Rising Records being still fresh, Neonfly performed an amazing set containing songs from their first album due to be released on the 29th of August. Willy Norton(Vocals) proved once again that he is a perfect fit for Neonfly, with his powerful vocals and stage presence. Despite some technical difficulties affecting the wireless system of Freferick Thunder(Guitar) half way through the set, the band still delivered a great show full of energy and power. Neonfly are now tighter than ever and the album should be anticipated by all! Pagan's Mind kept the same pace and delivered a very powerful and energetic set. The Norwegian made it clear that they are back to rock the UK and they definitely rocked London! The crowd, although not huge in numbers, was completely into it and everybody seemed to have a great time, which created a superb atmosphere. Pagan's Mind are one of the few bands that actually enjoy being on stage and you can clearly see it! The always impressive Jørn Viggo Lofstad(Guitar) along with the amazing vocals of Nils K. Rue(Vocals), who performed with a broken hip, along with the rest of the band really created a great feeling and left the best impressions to the London crowd. Their new album named Heavenly Ecstasy is out now via SPV Steamhammer. And if you missed the show for any reason, make sure not to miss it the next time this boys will be around!
