Pagan's Mind - Enigmatic Calling - 2005 - SPV
"Enigmatic Calling" continues to forge on in their own sound while still remaining creative and building on what they've already done. The soaring vocals are as strong as ever and layed over constantly changing yet heavy and well structured songs. While many progressive bands are content to emulate what other prog bands like Queensryche and Dream Theater have done, Pagan's Mind sets themselves apart as a true force in the genre. The songs are technical, but not just for the sake of it, and retain a certain catchy heavyness. Most of all they don't get too bogged down in experimenting and keep things metal and somewhat accessible. If more progressive was up to this level I would like the genre a whole lot more. This is just a good show of innovation without overdoing it.
Highlights: Entrance To Infinity, Supremacy Our Kind, Celestial Calling, New World Order
