    WOW!!!!!!!!

    Recording the new PAIN album!

    Hello friends!
    I just came back from 4 really intensive days at The Abyss in the middle of nowhere in Sweden. I'm really exhausted but also very happy with the result and that all the hard work seem to have payed off.

    The first day was spent on setting up the kit, miking it up and checking the sound. After that we managed to record one song before we decided to start fresh the next day. Day two we recorded 6 songs including a really fast industrial and dark song which I'm sure some of you will raise your eyebrows to :) Day three we recorded another 4 songs and started on the fifth and last one but decided to start fresh the next day. The last day we nailed the last song and made some additional video shoots for the forthcoming studio diary. I also recorded a special greeting for all our French fans.

    I'm really exited in finding out what the final result will sound like, and I'm sure you are as well. My impressions so far is that the new album will without doubt be the hardest and strongest PAIN album ever. It has two really fast songs, one with really dark goth/death/industrial vibes, and one which is even more evil (I haven't heard the lyrics yet). It has one really catchy heavy rock'n'roll song with a kind of AC/DC / old Accept kind of feeling and a 7 minutes long really slow and heavy creation with a kind of Tiamat feeling to it. We also recorded a song that I gave the work name "Same Old Song part 2" which is going to be a blockbuster. I haven't heard all the songs with lyrics yet and I'm not sure how much I'm aloud to reveal (I might have said to much already), but as you may notice I find it hard not to positive about this next release. The album doesn't include a single weak track.

    I practiced a lot to get in shape for this recording and it's a weird feeling to hear the result with live drums on it. PAIN has evolved to a more complex kind of evil creature that breaths hot steam and growls at you ;-) My performance on the new album has influences (which I think can be heard by any experienced drummer) from (among others) Scott Travis (especially the "Painkiller" album), Daniel Erlandsson (Arch Enemy), and Mikkey Dee. But of course mostly by my self, and it's a really good feeling to finally have made a permanent mark on a PAIN production. Even thou I've participated on all live releases and on a couple of songs on the last album, this is a big difference for me.

    Last but not least, huge thanks to Zildjian cymbals and Calle at Slagverkskompaniet!


    I hope to see as many of you as possible on the fortcoming PAIN shows which will be announced soon! Until then, take care!!

    I am definitely feeling the 'rush' of the new Pain year. We are waiting with eager anticipation. Peter has not let us down as of yet.

    Expectations: More PAIN, harder, and darker...

    Projections: More PAIN, better, stronger, faster...

    cheers!
