October 24th @ The Underworld, London
Pain recently announced their brand new studio album, ‘Coming Home’, which will be released on 9th September via Nuclear Blast - the follow up to 2011’s 'You Only Live Twice'. After the substantial success of Peter Tägtgren's Lindemann project with Rammstein 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 spun 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 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.
