After witnessing first-hand the dramatic rises and falls of firstly Queensryche and then Dream Theater, the world of Progressive Metal needs new salvation...it arrived long ago and they are called Pagan's Mind!!!

THEY ARE NOT Queensryche or Dream Theater at their peak!!!

THEY ARE NOT THE NEW QUEENSRYCHE OR DREAM THEATER!!!

THEY ARE PAGAN'S MIND...THE FINEST PROGRESSIVE METAL BAND EVER!!!

I hope to the Gods and Goddesses that this album is the one that will break them into the big time!!!

Heavenly Ecstasy really is just that!!!

It's the best band showing off what they are capable of!!!

Pagans Mind have been hyped up to be the New Dream Theater and up to now have come up to the mark.The classic Gods Equation being up there with the best of albums.But it is clear to see that Heavenly Ecstasy doesnt quite make the mark .Whilst being a very good album ,it lacks that Big production feel,because the excellent keyboards ,which on earlier albums are such a dominant part of the bands big sound,seem to be heard only in the background.For this reason alone I rate 4 STARS ONLY.

Pagan's Mind at no time deserved to be regarded as the successors of Dream Theater and at no time were able to follow in the much too large footsteps of the US-American Progressive Rock gods. Their songs are not as complex in structure as those of Dream Theater, their songs do not feature all these weird odd-time signatures which are a distinctive feature of Dream Theater songs and their music is not as rich in variety as Dream Theater's. But I think they have never tried to sound like Dream Theater, and that has certainly been to their advantage!

To be sure, Pagan's Mind display very good musicianship (especially guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad), their songwriting is more than just solid, and Nils K. Rue is an outstanding metal singer whose voice has a high recognition value. "Heavenly Ecstasy" is no exception in these regards, but unfortunately - and I am aware that this is presumably the most severe form of criticism that can be levelled at a band - Pagan's Mind are starting to copy themselves. There are just too many similarities to "Enigmatic calling" and "God's Equation". Take for example, the part in "Into the aftermath" (on "Heavenly Ecstasy") starting at 2:36 leading into the keyboard solo and compare it to the part in "Evolution exceed" (on "God's Equation") starting at 4:20!!! The parts are even set in the same key!!! The same goes for the riffs at the beginning of "The Master's Voice" (on "Heavenly Ecstasy") and at the beginning of - again - "Evolution exceed". These are just the most obvious examples, I could name many more. Generally, songs such as "Eyes of fire", "Intermission", "Into the aftermath", "Revelation to the end", "The Master's Voice" and "Never walk alone" could easily have been included on one of the two predecessors.

5.0 out of 5 stars My choice for album of the year 2011 25 Jan. 2012
By wizey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Much like Nu Metal, Progressive Metal is a genre that generally doesn't really appeal to me much but occasionally a band or album comes along that still has enough of its foundations in more mainstream or "traditional" metal that it does appeal. With Heavenly Ecstasy Pagan's Mind have delivered that kind of album that does cross over the mainstream-prog bridge, and very successfully I might add. I am another who gets easily bored with an album load of ten minute sagas that each go off on more tangents than Pythagoras but with only one song Revelation To The End getting anywhere near that length at eight and a half minutes, the album as a whole is a pretty easy listen. There are numerous changes throughout the songs in terms of time, melody, and instruments, but Pagan's Mind don't seem to go on with endless noodling. Each part is there to enhance the song rather than to show how clever and talented they are as musicians. When they do divert from the songs regular path they manage to bring it back again in a way that makes me think "yeah... that's effin' brilliant."
Production is equal throughout the mix resulting in the degree of clarity and loudness that we should expect these days, but not many bands actually manage to get it right. On Heavenly Ecstasy I think it's flawless. The only minor criticism I have is that I think Nils K. Rue has had his vocals given a bit of the Ozzy treatment, so at times they sound a little un-natural/enhanced. Weather this was absolutely necessary or not I don't know because from what I've heard on this album he is quite a talented vocalist. However it doesn't really detract from the listening experience at all because he still sounds good and the songs themselves are great, regardless.
I love the tempered use of keyboards to create atmosphere, bring melody and the light that's required to contrast with and compliment the dark of the guitars. There are some cool riffs throughout but some of the guitar solos on the album are simply sublime, with Intermission and Walk Away In Silence in particular immediately springing to mind. These two are my picks from the album, with the latter even sounding more Queensryche than Queensryche themselves these days! But they're closely followed by Intermission, Revelation To The End, Into The Aftermath, Live Your Life Like A Dream, and the mellow closer When Angels Unite. Are there any songs on the album that I don't like? No. Even the two bonus tracks Create Your Destiny and Power Of Mindscape aren't bad, with the latter being my pick of the two.
This is quite a classy album music wise that makes for very enjoyable listening, in fact it's my favorite album from 2011. And any band that manages to get tits on the cover is definitely gonna get some votes from me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy, melodic, progressive power metal 16 Sept. 2011
By M. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After not really liking God's Equation I was skeptical about buying another one from these guys. Then I heard Intermission and Eyes of Fire and they changed my mind. Overall this a pretty good disc. Lots of dynamics in and between the songs and these guys are all pretty good players so the music is always interesting. The strongest tracks are the 2 listed above and Live Your Life Like A Dream, which has a part in it that is strikingly similar (intentionally?) to Allannah Myles' "Black Velvet". The song even has a shuffle feel to it like Black Velvet.

The only weak point is that the bonus tracks are unnecessary and could/should have just been released with the regular version IMO. This was probably just a marketing ploy to get me to buy the deluxe version and I guess it worked...

3.0 out of 5 stars A step backwards...BUT still good... 5 July 2011
By S. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Eyes Of Fire and Intermission start things off solid. Good hooks, very good hard rock songs.
Into the Aftermath is also a good song.
Walk Away In Silence sounds just like Operation Mindcrime era Queensryche to me. Good song though...
Revelation To The End - Finally, a hint of progressive metal!
The rest of the disc is overall pretty good, but not great for me.
One issue with this release is that there are no really great songs here. There are no "At The Graves", "Taken" or "Osiris' Eyes" etc...
The songs are all for the most part solid, good rock tunes...just not the epic progressive metal I've come to expect from this band.
My only critical comment would be that the evil, raspy voice effect that has been used on all the CD's has been beaten to death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like it at first... 20 Sept. 2011
By Photogeek1234 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm a huge progressive rock/metal fan and really love the first two albums from this band and keep wanting more of the same. The last two albums have been a departure form their progressive roots. At first I did not like this album because I was looking for something else. Once I accepted that I wasn't going to get what I originally wanted this album became more and more appealing. This is a great album, it's just going to take 3 or 4 spins before you get into it and when you do it's fantastic.
