Pagan’s Mind is a Hard Rock band out of Norway. (English Lyrics!) I stumbled across this band because Floor Jansen, currently of Nightwish, did a project with guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad of Pagan’s Mind. Their collaboration is Northward. I don’t know if that band will continue, of if the album they produced in 2018 will be the only one.

This song is “Intermission” by Pagan’s Mind from their 2011 album Heavenly Ecstasy. Here’s a link to lyrics, because it is still Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.

I have to listen to more of their work to see if I really like them or not. The guitar work is top notch, but I think the compositions need a bit of polishing. Still, it mostly works.
