    Remedy Lane

    Remedy Lane is the fourth album by Swedish progressive metal band Pain of Salvation, released in Spring 2002. It is a concept album focusing on the search of a man to discover himself. It deals with topics such as love, loss, lust, sex and understanding. A portion of the album is autobiographical in nature, and is written by guitarist and vocalist Daniel Gildenlöw. The liner notes that come with the CD are filled with extra material (e.g. poems and photos) related to the concept, and also contain date markings to assist the dedicated listener (and reader) to piece together the album chronologically. While both Remedy Lane and One Hour by the Concrete Lake (Pain of Salvation's second studio album) are about a main character searching for truth and himself, Remedy Lane is a more personal tale and the listener is exposed to a wider variety of emotions. The album's production is similar to that of its predecessor, The Perfect Element, part I; it is also quite a dark album, though there are some moments of happiness and devotion. Gildenlöw has said that the inspiration for Remedy Lane was an era of his life in which he wished to learn what freedom was. Chapter I: Chapter II: Chapter

Right?"

    The Perfect Element, Part I

    The Perfect Element, Part I

    The Perfect Element, Part I is Pain of Salvation's third studio album, released in October 2000. It is a concept album that focuses on the forming of the individual, particularly on the events from one's childhood and adolescence. It is the first segment of a planned three-part concept. The Perfect Element, Part II was released in 2007 under the title Scarsick. "The album is in a way a blend of the two earlier albums, with the groove and originality of "Entropia" and the focus, thoroughness and production of "One Hour by the Concrete Lake". However, it will be quite unique as an album." The Perfect Element, Part I is the first part of a planned, three-piece concept, and is divided into three chapters, each containing four tracks. Part one of the concept is a story human development, which focuses specifically on the progression from childhood to adolescence. It contains many themes within its context; which include but are not limited to: All these themes are dealt with as the story explores the lives of two characters, one male and one female (known commonly as "He" and "She") who are broken, dysfunctional people. They meet in the events of the song "Ashes" after the first two

    12:5

    12:5

    12:5 is Pain of Salvation's first live album. It was released in 2004 and was recorded from a concert in the band's home town of Eskilstuna, Sweden on 12 May (12.5), 2003. It was an "unplugged" show, meaning that there were only acoustic instruments, i.e. no electric guitars; grand piano and harpsichord (instead of synthesizers). It features songs from all the band's albums to that date except One Hour by the Concrete Lake. The songs of 12:5 are not simply the original studio versions played with acoustic instruments. Most have been rearranged and have new parts layered over the top of old ones. The reasoning behind this is that the band did not want to simply release "Pain of Salvation Live", but rather a performance of the band taking a more personal and different approach to the material. Reactions to the album were mainly positive, and the band was applauded for its ability to re-interpret their own material. Of particular note is the 12:5 version of "Ashes" which begins with its original intro (in A minor), but then continues in an uplifting major key. "Reconciliation" contains a short excerpt from the Imperial March theme from the Star Wars trilogy. Book I: Genesis Book II:

    Road Salt One

    Road Salt One is the seventh studio album by Swedish band Pain of Salvation, released May 17, 2010 on InsideOut. It is a concept album, like all of their previous releases. Daniel Gildenlöw has described the album in interviews as sounding more "jam oriented" with tracks that sound like they have been "recorded live in the rehearsal room". He has described the concept of Road Salt One as being many parallel stories that are neither fictional nor autobiographical, centering on a theme of making choices, and focusing on the choices that are left to make by each character. He has also compared the album's plot to the film Magnolia in interviews. The Japanese edition has a bonus track after Innocence titled "Tip Toe Two". The drum parts in the song are played by Daniel Gildenlow. Concept, music and lyrics by Daniel Gildenlöw.

    Ending Themes: The Second Death of Pain of Salvation

    Ending Themes (On the Two Deaths of Pain of Salvation) is a live album and documentary by progressive metal band Pain of Salvation. It was released on January 26, 2009 with a DVD version released on March 3, 2009. The DVD release has a double disc feature. The first disc features an 80-minute documentary of the band's 2005 world tour directed by Per Hillblom while the second disc features the full concert video from the Paradiso show recorded on March 2, 2007. A Limited Edition will also be released that will include a double audio CD version of the Amsterdam concert. The CD version will be released independent of the DVDs as well. The DVD is named in recognition of the two lineup changes that happened in the past few years. The first being at the end of the 2005 world tour (The First Death Of) where Kristoffer Gildenlöw left the band due to not being able to attend rehearsals since he lived in a different country than the rest of the band. He was temporarily replaced by Simon Andersson. The second change came at the end of the 2007 world tour (The Second Death Of) where Johan Langell left the band to concentrate on family commitments. He has since been replaced by Léo Margarit for

    Scarsick

    Scarsick is the sixth studio album by Swedish progressive metal band Pain of Salvation, released on January 22, 2007. It is a concept album focusing on issues dealing with capitalism, materialism, consumerism, and contemporary society as a whole. The album leaked on to the internet in its entirety on December 6, 2006 before being officially released. This is the last album to feature Johan Langell on drums. According to Daniel Gildenlöw, "Scarsick is much more band oriented and down to the core. Threatening and disturbing". The liner notes reveal that Scarsick is actually The Perfect Element, part II - "he". The album is divided into two chapters: side A and side B. Scarsick is the second part of a planned, three-piece concept and the follow-up to The Perfect Element, part I. It continues the story of the male character from the latter album. Unlike its predecessor, Scarsick is a politically charged social commentary, and deals with a number of topics, including: Daniel Gildenlow has revealed in interviews that the life of "He" is an allegory for all of mankind; that in him we see the problems of society on an intimate, personal level. Thus as The Perfect Element, part I deals with

    BE

    BE is Pain of Salvation's fifth studio album, released by InsideOutMusic in September 2004. It is a concept album focusing on the existence of God and humankind. Along with the band it features a nine part orchestra, The Orchestra of Eternity, which features prominently throughout the album. This is the last album to feature Kristoffer Gildenlöw on bass. The album is the first Pain of Salvation album to be divided into more than three chapters. The band performed it live as a rock opera. It was released as "BE" (Original Stage Production). BE attempts to explore the many facets of human existence. It begins with the narration of Animae, someone or something who/that has existed for as long as he/she/it can remember and contemplates the nature of his/her/its existence and then begins a journey of understanding with the words: "I will call myself GOD and I will spend the rest of forever trying to figure out who I am". The story continues from there. The characters that appear and disappear throughout the story are as follows: The sound and style are somewhat more varied than previous Pain of Salvation albums, but at the same time, calling upon those previous albums as influences.

    Entropia

    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. The title is a portmanteau of Entropy (from thermodynamics, the measure of disorder present in a system), and Utopia (the ideal society). This is the only album to feature Daniel Magdic on guitar. Entropia was first released by the Japanese company Marquee on their Avalon label in August 1997 (see 1997 in music). Following favourable reviews and positive fan reactions in the progressive rock/metal world, Marquee decided to fly Daniel over to Tokyo a week in October 1997 to promote the album. While in Tokyo, Daniel featured in various TV and radio shows, did interviews for the Japanese metal press, and performed in selected record stores. Around this time, purchasing albums through online record stores was commonplace, and fans from around the world began to do so with Entropia. It was subsequently released in Romania (1998 on Rocris Discs), in Europe (September 1999 on InsideOut Music), in South America (September 1999 on Hellion), and in the USA (2000 on InsideOut America). This elaborate release history is indicative of an

    One Hour by the Concrete Lake

    One Hour by the Concrete Lake is Pain of Salvation's second studio album. It is a concept album focusing on the issues of nuclear power and waste, displacement of indigenous peoples, the firearm industry, and human discovery. One Hour by the Concrete Lake was first released by Avalon Records in Japan in July 1998. It was later released in Europe in January 1999 on InsideOut, in the USA in November 1999 on InsideOut America and in South America in November 1999 on Hellion. One Hour by the Concrete Lake takes a more thorough and factual approach to its concept than its predecessor, Entropia. A number of facts are given in the album booklet, with a list of sources provided at the end. The chronological order of songs is the same as the track order (as opposed to Entropia) and a number of the events and places are real. For example, the Black Hills in North America and Lake Karachay in the former USSR. The sound is generally darker and more subdued than Entropia, with a harsh, industrial feel to the guitar tones. Daniel Gildenlöw has personally, though reluctantly, stated that Concrete Lake is his least favorite Pain of Salvation album. One Hour by the Concrete Lake follows the
