Pain  


Peter Tägtgren has been a respected figure in the metal underground for a number of years, both as producer extraordinaire and as leader of the death metal group Hypocrisy. Pain is his solo outlet, delving into the world of techno/industrial metal, with the earlier albums more starkly industrial and the later material such as Dancing With The Dead more of a techno-flavored metal album (emphasis on "metal", as the techno influences are slight). Tägtgren foregoes the death metal growls for an effective clean, yet forceful vocal style, and he handles the other instruments quite effectively -- really, with a pedigree such as his, quality is to be expected, and he delivers. This may not be for diehard Hypocrisy fans (though, really, the style here isn't a million miles from his main band, though death metal this is definitely not), but those into the techno/industrial side of metal will take to this.
