Pain Of Salvation
Pain of Salvation is known far and wide as one of the most vital bands in the
resurgence of progressive music. Boasting incredible musicianship, a wide variety
of influences, and a darkly poetic approach; Pain of Salvation has a reputation for
being unpredictable, outside the box, and willing to experiment with styles. The
band’s latest release (from early 2017) is called ‚In the Passing Light of Day‘ and it
markes a return to the band’s more heavy approach from the early years. The
album is also a very personal album because it handles about the time (3 years
ago) when the founding member Daniel Gildenlöw was hospitalised for many
months because of a flesh eating bacteria. It was a life threatening a
air but luckily
he came out alive. Last year the band was also happy to see Johan Hallgren return
to take on the guitar duties again. Resulting in amazing live shows as well.
Because of the great response on the album and the live shows, and the album
being rated very high in many 2017 year lists, the band is now fully back as one of
the leading bands in the genre!
2018 will be a year with many new live shows on the back of the album succes.
But in the meantime the band will also start working on new songs.

Johan Hallgren – guitars, backing vocals
