Pain Announces New Album “Coming Home”

Pain, the Swedish metal force led by multi-instrumentalist and producer Peter Tägtgren, is ready to unleash the follow-up to 2011’s “You Only Live Twice.”

After Peter’s Lindemann project with Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann, he retreated and took time to write another industrial metal statement entitled “Coming Home.” The release of this record is scheduled for September 9th through Nuclear Blast with cover artwork created by Stefan Heilemann.

Mastermind Peter states: “I was brainstorming about the cover with Heile again… And we got the result that I really needed. I rented a spacesuit and spinned 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…”

More details and a European tour in October / November are due to be announced soon.

U.K. death metal band Abhorrent Decimation is celebrating the success of “Miasmic Mutation” with a re-issue of the album in vinyl format and a corresponding mini-tour. Making full use of the stunning artwork created by Pär Olofsson, this vinyl reissue is served up in a Gatefold layout and will be limited to 250 units. Each copy will also be totally unique.
