Pain Band of the Week

There are some pretty loose genre definitions out there, and one of the loosest would be Industrial Metal. Why? Because of people like Peter Tagtgren. Over the years Tagtgren took the box his music with PAIN was placed in and expanded the sides, rounding them out, and taking the music to new heights never thought to be possible. In fact, while someone like Marilyn Manson is running around getting all the credit for ground breaking music Peter Tagtgren was making and producing the sounds Manson based his career on. Pain's new album "Coming Home" continues along that path with a soundtrack of conspiracy. There are twists and turns and surprises around every corner. We waited five long years for this new album and how sweet it is to have it in our hands... or is it? - Martell


"That's me, designed to piss you off; - when Peter Tagtgren is ascending from the depths of his legendary Abyss Studio to take the microphone, a little musical revolution is inevitable. Because what else would you expect from HYPOCRISY's death metal veteran, who not only plays industrial metal with PAIN, but is considered to be one of the most influential producers in the metal scene (DIMMU BORGIR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, SABATON etc.), and just recently launched his controversial project LINDEMANN in partnership with RAMMSTEIN's frontman Till.

"Sometimes you pull your hair out and lay sleepless all night long, because you can't figure out this one chorus or don't know how to finish a certain song," admits singer and axeman Peter. "That's just me: When I dive into it, there's no ending in sight. It's a self-destructive mechanism. But I want perfection - or I don't want it at all."
