PAGAN'S MIND has just completed work on its first DVD, to be released by the band's own label and distributed by Indie Distribution. A street date will be announced shortly. The DVD will be released in three different versions: an audio-CD and -DVD containing footage/recording of PAGAN'S MIND's November 1, 2008 show at Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo; a double DVD with the Rockefeller show as well as a disc with bonus material; and a limited-to-1000-copies hand-numbered three-disc version with the audio CD, the two DVDs — including more bonus material — plus an autographed photo and a guitar pick.
Video footage of PAGAN'S MIND's November 16, 2008 performance in Munich, Germany can be viewed below (courtesy of "eblinternational").
The band's latest album, "God's Equation", in 2007 entered the Norwegian domestic chart (featuring only Norwegian artists) at position No. 14. It also landed on the international chart (featuring all artists) at No. 35. The CD, which was released in the U.S. in January 2008, was recorded by Espen Mjøen at his Mediamaker Studio in Skien, Norway, and mixed at Toy Town Studios in Stockholm by Stefan Glaumann (RAMMSTEIN).
