PAIN only recently announced their brand new studio album, ‘Coming Home’ – the follow up to 2011’sYou 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.

The artwork for ‘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.

The band recently released new single ‘Black Knight Satellite’:

PAIN started life as a hobby for Peter Tägtgren, whose concept was to fuse heavy metal with 1980s-inspired electro-industrial and techno influences.

It all began with the release of a self-titled debut in 1997, and since then PAIN have released six more albums and a DVD.
‘Coming Home’ will be their eighth studio album release.

PAIN are:
Peter Tägtgren | vocals, guitars, programming etc.
David Wallin | drums
Michael Bohlin | guitars
Johan Husgavfel | bass
