Hey all, 

please see below you tube link.

Found this band while looking for some new music, really like this chord progression starting at 38:03 till 38:09.

any ideas? i don't think its a straight minor chord at the start.
Ah, Eclipse

The chorus still starts on a minor chord, but it's away from tonic. iv-(b)III-(b)II-i

What part are you most confused about?
ah right, it just didn't sound like a minor chord to me,  i guess its how it relates to the over all chord progression as you've  explained the theory.
I hear it like this:

I'm  [F#m] addicted to pleasure I'm [E] addicted to pain the [D]  black [C#m] way.
