PAGAN’S MIND – God’s Equation

‘God’s Equation’ is a musical giant consisting of groove, melody, intelligent heaviness and ambitious song writing. The guitar wall is absolutely voluminous and shapes the whole album. Due to the crystal clear, very transparent and hard production, the songs do really ‘explode’. Skillfully and cleverly, the musical essences of that what constitutes Progressive Heavy Metal are joined here.

 

Tracklisting:
  •  01. The Conception / 2:02
  •  02. Gods Equation / 7:56
  •  03. United Alliance / 5:04
  •  04. Atomic Firelight / 5:18
