(2000 – present)

Previously known as Silverspoon, having issued the ‘Sink Or Swim’ demo under their former name, PAGAN’S MIND came into being during mid 2000. Frontman Nils K. Rue had previously sang for Sunset Strip. Guitarist Thorstein Eugen Aaby had previously been employed by acts such as Deadline and Sunset Strip whilst drummer Stian Lindaas Kristoffersen has experience with Woodstone, King’s Quest and Sunset Strip. Rue, alongside Carnivora members Tore Moren and bassist Bjarne Torud, in association with erstwhile Street Legal drummer Bjorn Olav Bol Ladval and ex-Circus Maximus keyboard player Espen Storø also operate the Ozzy Osbourne tribute band Ozzmosis.

Signing to the Facefront label the group adopted the revised title and introduced new members guitar player Jorn Viggo Lofstad of Cry Free and Trivial Act bass player Steinar Krokmo. Following recording of the debut ‘Infinity Divine’ album, produced by none other than TNT guitarist Ronni Le Tekro, the band also incorporated keyboard player Ronny Tegner.

Stian Kristoffersen, re-billed as ‘Mr. Thunderforce’, featured on the debut ‘Reaping The Worldwinds’ album from Electro Metal act Dimension F3H led by Limbonic Art mentor Morfeus (a.k.a. Krister Dreyer). He would be joined by his colleague Steinar Krokmo on bass for live work with this unit.

    vv Haha, that's hilarious! :D By the way, they are writing new material for the follow up to "Heavenly Ecstasy". I've heard rumors of a potential double album, with 1 disc continuing where the last album was heading with short catchy songs, and the other disc featuring a return to their longer, more progressive sound. This is just a rumor from the official Facebook page though, and I kinda doubt it will happen as much as I love the idea! :D

    In my opinion Celestial Entrance is their best album! A true work of art! So I could not agree more with Arklem! :)

    Celestial Entrance is second to none. Truly one of the best prog metal albums of all time, if not the best.

    Every album is better than the last, and the last two are remarkable! :O

    vv Yeah, that is easily the slickest solo I've heard in the last 5 years. It's so good that interestingly enough, it is the exact same solo that is played in the bonus track "Shine Eternally" from the God's Equation sessions.
