PAIN, the unique Swedish metal project led by multi-instrumentalist and renowned producer, Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Lindemann), are ready to unleash the follow-up to 2011’s ‘You Only Live Twice’. After the substantial success of Peter Tägtgren‘s LINDEMANN project with Rammestein vocalist Till Lindemann, Peter retreated – taking some time to write another shrewd industrial metal statement entitled ‘Coming Home’.
The release of this record is scheduled for September 9th through Nuclear Blast.
The artwork for new record ‘Coming Home’ was created by Stuttgart artist Stefan Heilemann (Epica, Lindemann, Indica) – whose artwork is famed for its symbiosis of fantasy, reality and insanity.
“I was brainstorming about the cover with Heile again… And we got the result that I really needed. I rented a spacesuit and spinned away thereafter… Musically, the album is a development of where PAIN and LINDEMANN ended at – more experimental than what I’ve ever done before. Acoustic guitars and a helping hand again from Clemens of CARACH ANGREN with the orchestra arrangements, and some guest vocals. And Sebastian Tägtgren did a great job on the drums…”
So speaks Peter Tägtgren, musician, producer and creative brain behind Pain, Sweden’s finest industrial metal export. His has been a life immersed in music, in pushing boundaries, and taking ideas to both their logical and illogical extremes. It’s been a career that has involved fronting bands – notably iconic death metal veterans Hypocrisy, and now PAIN – or shaping their sounds – as he has done with Celtic Frost, Children Of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir and Immortal amongst others. It’s a calling that has made him one of Europe’s most highly respected musicians and producers.
PAIN will be playing a UK show on October 24th at The Underworld, London.
