Thunder Perfect Mind (2001) by Pale Divine. Labels: Game Two. Genres: Traditional Doom Metal  .

Thunder Perfect Mind is an album by the English group Nurse With Wound.

Thunder Perfect Mind was released in 2001 by Game Two records and was equally well received. However shortly before the recording of Thunder Perfect Mind Jay Purnell was asked to leave the band and new bassist Jim Corl was ushered in for the recording and subsequent show dates. In support of the reissued Thunder Perfect Mind album Pale Divine embarked on a short European tour once again with Place of Skulls as well as up and coming French doomsters Rising Dust. Playing the prestigious third annual Doom Shall Rise festival and Belgian Doom Night along the way.

On this album Pale Divine are able to celebrate their influences without losing a sense of their own identity and sound. Great lead guitar, some truly menacing riffs, and a tight rhythm section set Pale Divine above the majority of bands playing this style of music. Recommend this Item to a Friend.

Darin, Pale Divine was started in 1995, but your path to the first full-length 'Thunder Perfect Mind' took almost six years.

Pale Divine were among a handful of bands who I first experienced via the old Mp. om site (remember back when it didn’t suck?). Their Crimson Tears demo, while shoddily produced, was good enough to make me take note of them, watching for a legitimate debut later down the road. That finally came in 2001 with Thunder Perfect Mind (TPM). Gone is the crappy production, instead replaced by a massive sound providing a backbone for songs which are at once crushing, emotional, and somber. Pale Divine’s sound is sort of a mixture of quite a few things. Deserving of special mention are the solos, some seemingly out of place on a doom album, yet still working perfectly. At times we get the standard wall of noise sound, but never once is melody sacrificed for sheer heaviness, as there almost always seems to be some sort of swirling guitar riff right around the corner.

PsycheDOOMelic is probably the best current label for doom metal, and Pale Divine is a great example of the quality of their output. Pale Divine play a style of doom metal firmly rooted in the 70s and 80s, although they don't necessarily mimick one band in particular so it's difficult to compare them to anybody. Vocalist Greg Diener sounds quite a bit like Scott Reagers or Bobby Liebling or one of those others 80s doomy vocalists that did a good job of imitating Ozzy whilst disregardeing the Birmingham accent. He has a very powerful voice and is crucial to the band's sound, and songs like Dark Knight wouldn't be the same with Diener's lungs. As for the actual songwriting, I'm reminded of different bands at different points of the album, yet the whole disc still flows consistantly and doesn't really sound mixed up, the band combines their influences well into a sort of doom pot pourri. Opener 'Amplified' is pure, unadultered rock and roll and reminds me more of Bishop than any gloomy doom metal band, even though it still has that deep, low sound to it. However, 'Gods Monsters and Men' actually has a Kyuss (BftRS-era) feel to it, whilst 'Dark Knight' has a strong epic vibe that reminds me of Manilla Road more than anybody else (especially in the fantastic vocal arrangements). Then we have the short, string-picked instrumental 'Dream Flower' that would sound right at home on Sabbath's Masters of Reality in place of Embryo or Orchid, and then John Klein's lead guitar reminds me of some really early bluesy metal, like Pentagram or even Blue Cheer (in tone and delivery). You might expect the band to sound all over the place, but that isn't the case. This album flows nicely, one superbly well-written song after the other, and the influences are all sewn in well. The PsycheDOOMelic rerelease has two live bonus tracks, and they're both played so perfectly that you can tell this band has rehearsed their asses off. A very tight performance, which tells me two things. One, this band must be excellent live, so if you live in or around Pennsylvania then you should definitely be sure to go to a Pale Divine show, I can guarantee an excellent performance. And two, this being Pale Divine's first album, I'm sure they could have only improved on their later releases, so along with 'Thunder Perfect Mind' I would also recommend checking out their subsequent albums, any real doomheads should not be missing any Pale Divine in their collection.
