Pain - Nothing Remains The Same
PAIN = Peter Tägtgren = Industrial Rock/Metal or whatever you want to call this. I had my prejudices against this CD, don't know why, it was somehow subconscious, but they're paying me for reviewing. Wait - no one's paying anything for that! Never mind...

The stuff on "Nothing Remains The Same" is altogether very catchy, nothing too hard or complicated, it's all, well, straight and catchy throughout the whole CD with clear vocals which you already know a bit from Tägtgren and HYPOCRISY. He adds a little touch of Industrial to everything and now and then a modern sound through keyboards, but anyway a lot of melody.

The only problem about it for me is: The thing's good, but what the hell shall I write about it? Let's keep it short, listen to "It's Only Them", "Shut Your Mouth" or "Fade Away" and make your own decision, oh yes, "Eleanor Rigby" is a very good cover version of the BEATLES and it's worth listening to it. I'm finishing now, otherwise I'll only write more garbage...
