PAINPAIN, the band featuring HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren, will finally make their latest release Cynic Paradise available to North America on June 8th. This version will also feature an alternate cover and a bonus live CD recorded on March 23-24, 2009 at the Zenith in Paris, France during the band’s European tour with NIGHTWISH.

“Hi Pain-heads! We’re finally releasing the PAIN album in North America and we’re really happy about that,” commented Tägtgren. “It gives us a bigger chance to hit the road there now, so stay tuned for tour dates on our home pages.

Nightwish / Pain – The Astoria, London

Review by HannTu

It’s a pretty weird pairing – the immensely popular, symphonic goth rockers Nightwish on the same tour with oddball industrial techno metal band Pain. The man behind Pain is of course the multi-talented Peter Tagtgren; founder of Swedish melodic death band Hypocrisy, former vocalist of Bloodbath, one time drummer for Malevolent Creation, studio owner and producer extraordinaire, and a whole slew of other side projects. I was pretty damn excited to interview him, but I wasn’t going to attend the show originally, until a last minute photo pass turned up.

The commercial appeal of Nightwish is impossible to overstate. Three consecutive nights in London is extremely rare – Iron Maiden play two nights regularly, but the Unholy Alliance 2006 (Slayer, In Flames, Children of Bodom, Lamb of God) and this year’s Black Crusade Tour (Machine Head, Dragonforce, Arch Enemy) are the only two that I can think of offhand. Trivium and Annihilator might have done three London nights last year. Some people I spoke to turned up to all three nights, which is pretty impressive. The signing session in Zavvi (formerly Virgin Megastores) earlier in the day was packed with people eager to get stuff signed and close-up shots of the band. One girl even brought her guitar to be signed!

PAIN – Peter Tägtgren

Peter Tägtgren is a well known figure amongst Metal circles. From his work as a producer and his many releases with Hypocrisy, without forgetting Bloodbath, Lock Up, The Abyss and War amongst others, one can say that he is certainly a busy man. Peter’s “other” musical outlet – Pain has recently released a new disc titled PSALMS OF EXTINCTION – their fifth overall and first for Roadrunner Records. Peter and I spoke about a number of things from songwriting to producing and in between.
