Singer Nils K. Rue of Norwegian power metallers PAGAN'S MIND kicked off the 2013 season of the Norwegian version of the hit singing competition "The Voice" earlier tonight (Friday, August 30) on the TV2 channel. Rue performed the classic IRON MAIDEN song "Run To The Hills" as part of his "blind audition" for an estimated audience of around 800,000. Check out video footage below.PAGAN'S MIND's sixth album, "Heavenly Ecstasy", entered the official chart in the group's home country at position No. 10 (international artists) and No. 2 (Norwegian artists). "Heavenly Ecstasy" was released in May 2011 via SPV/Steamhammer. The follow-up to 2007's "God's Equation" was mixed by Stefan Glaumann at Toytown Studios (RAMMSTEIN, MADONNA, WITHIN TEMPTATION) in Stockholm, Sweden. The effort was made available in four configurations: a limited-edition digipak with two bonus tracks, 28-page booklet and poster; a double gatefold LP with two bonus tracks on orange-colored vinyl; as a standard jewel case; and as a digital download.
