Swedish progressive rock/metal innovators Pain of Salvation have announced a very special reissue version of their classic 2002 album "Remedy Lane" entitled "Remedy Lane Re:visited (Re:mixed & Re:lived)" for July 1st, 2016 via InsideOutMusic. With this release, Pain of Salvation re-visit their ground-breaking and genre-bending "Remedy Lane" album by teaming up with old companion and mixing engineer wizard Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Symphony X, Devin Townsend, Haken, etc.) for a new sonic take on the original recordings as well as the intense full-album live performance from ProgPower USA Festival from 2014.
Entropia is Pain of Salvation's first studio album. It is a concept album concerning the story of a family in a fictional society that is torn apart by a war. "This album is a very complex concept that is pretty hard to grasp. It is about a family in a war situation, about a father that fails to protect his family, about a child who needs a father and not a soldier, about a society that kills and excludes and then takes its hand away from the remains in shock of what it has become. It is about a world I have chosen to call Entropia, which is a combination of the two words "Entropy" and "Utopia". Entropia is suspiciously similar to our world"…
The progressive rock expressionists Pain Of Salvation are back to deliver the second part of the groundbreaking Road Salt journey: Opulent creativity, major stylistic flirtation and emotionally powerful throughout its 12 tracks of sweaty gravel, asphalt butterflies, untrodden paths and brave decisions.
One thing that you can never criticize Pain of Salvation for, whether you like them or not, is not changing direction. Ever since their ambitious prog metal debut album, the band has been constantly reinventing their already unique sound, with the grand final product being Road Salt One. Let me say from the beginning that if you're expecting to hear a progressive metal masterpiece like The Perfect Element or Remedy Lane, you will surely be disappointed. But if you come into this album with an open mind, willing to hear anything Mr. Gildenlöw has to throw at you, Road Salt One will come as a pleasant surprise.
