details on the release of Pain of Salvation's latest album

taken from their official Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/n...50163911800355)

I for one cannot wait for this release.
loved the single of Road Salt that they released for their bid to go to Eurovision and just love the majority of what this band has released to bits

going more with the movie/TV show imaginings that they started with their live DVD release -which is honestly a must buy for any fan

Quote:
“Road Salt One. Twelve tracks of sweaty gravel, asphalt butterflies, untrodden paths and brave decisions. It will not beg for your liking, it will not make excuses, it will not carry you safely across the dangerous waters. If you don’t pick up its pace it will leave you stranded at the curb of the road. Yes, Road Salt One might indeed be a harsh lover, but if you have the guts to follow it whole-heartedly and dare to surrender to its rhythm, it will take you places you need to visit.”

Road Salt One (also called Ivory) is now done! It is recorded, mixed, mastered and is soon pressed. The artwork has been finalized for both the Regular and Limited edition (see differences below), and the only task remaining right now is the artwork for the vinyl edition (it’s 1976 on steroids, how can we not have an LP version, right?).

Now, here is some info about the editions and track lists:

STANDARD EDITION
Jewel case with 20 page booklet.

1. No Way (standard edit)
2. She Likes to Hide
3. Sisters
4. Of Dust
5. Tell Me You Don’t Know
6. Sleeping Under the Stars
7. Darkness of Mine
8. Linoleum
9. Curiosity
10. Where it Hurts
11. Road Salt (standard edit)
12. Innocence

Total playing time ca 52 min.

LIMITED EDITION
Fold-out digi pack with 24 page booklet.

1. What She Means to Me (bonus track)
2. No Way (extended edit)
3. She Likes to Hide
4. Sisters
5. Of Dust
6. Tell Me You Don’t Know
7. Sleeping Under the Stars
8. Darkness of Mine
9. Linoleum
10. Curiosity
11. Where it Hurts
12. Road Salt (extended edit)
13. Innocence

Total playing time ca 56 min.

Road Salt one is scheduled for release May 17 and will be available as CD (Standard), CD (Limited), LP (with gatefold cover) and Digital Download.

They were cool when I saw them with Dream Theater, so I might just have to check out an album for once.

Hopefully it will sound more like the POS I know and love and a bit less like the Linoleum ep which was ok, but nowhere near as good.
From the tracklist, the new album only has 1 of the 5 songs from the ep so fingers crossed.

I have been listening to the old albums again recently and fuck they are a good band.

The Perfect Element, Remedy Lane and BE are pretty flawless.
Entropia, One Hour by the Concrete Lake and Scarsick are great too.

The live DVD is kickass too....

Anyone got Road Salt yet?

Thoughts?

I am starting to dig it more with each listen though it is definitely different for them.

Might have to pick it up when I've got some money, one of these months.

They've been getting worse with each release since they peaked with Remedy Lane.... and sadly the trend continues with this one.

New song up but to listen to it 'officially' you have to like their Failbook page.
I'm definitely sick of bands forcing popularity metrics through shit like that... so here's a YouTube link instead.

It doesn't bother me at all. For the priviledge of being able to listen to a track for free, a couple of clicks is nothing and a fair ask. You can also 'unlike' them straight after if you feel inclined.

I picked up Road Salt 2 today and it is great.

Even better then Road Salt 1 (despite various opinions).
Has a far more dark rock sound to it with a Western edge. Not meaning country and western but proper Morricone notations to some songs.

I downloaded it a few months ago, definitely glad I didn't waste any money on it. I agree it's not as tragic as RS1 but it's still a turd.
