It goes on about not wasting empty space on the cd, so they might as well leave a secret message, and to continue to the bonus disc to see the message, where it keeps blathering on and just as it's about to get to the message it runs out of room and cuts off mid-sentence.  :lol

Well I'm very late to this news. Just went on YouTube to look for more live version of On a Tuesday and I saw some shirtless guitar player on stage and was shocked to realize it was Johan Hallgren. I don't know what to make of Zolberg's situation. This band has always been The Daniel Gildenlow band.

So whilst working my way through my massive Spotify playlist of albums/bands to check out, I listened to The Perfect Element, Part 1 the other day. Holy shit!

After one listen it was an instant download for me. There was so much that struck me one first impressions and plenty I know will grow on me. I listened to In The Passing Light of Day earlier this year and thought it was ok. I know I've also sampled other PoS songs over the last few years but this album hit me. I know it's considered one of their best and I'm chuffed to feel like I finally 'get' why they are adored.

I'm on my second listen through now and it's really quite glorious. The other great thing is that as I'm working my way through my Spotify playlist, I'm listening through with albums in alphabetical order, to mix it up a bit. That means that the next album (after Red Fangs selftitled) is Remedy Lane  :metal

Will report back after that, this month could be my 'PoS obsessional' month.

Oh man, I love Remedy Lane so much. You're in for a treat :metal


Also, listening to In the Passing Light of Day is even more depressing now thinking about Ragnar leaving the band.

The Perfect Element was my first PoS album and it's still easily my favorite. Glad you got to experience that as well! You're about to listen to their second best album now, which is also great.

The Perfect Element is great. Remedy Lane might be my favorite followed by One Hour By The Concrete Lake. Entropia is excellent as well.

I think what sets Gildenlow apart from many other Prog Metal songwriters is that every song fees crafted. At least to Herrick, nothing feels added for the sake of adding stuff whether it's long drawn-out instrumental sections or whatever else Prog is usually criticized for.

I wonder how the higher vocal stuff will be handled now that Hallgren is back. Zolberg can sing no doubt but I always preferred Hallgren's voice. I don't know if Hallgren can pull off some of the higher stuff Gildenlow did on the albums.

Crafted up to a point, imo. BE has a ton of stuff that feels just there for no reason.

Ok, so help me out here Rich or anyone.  I love OHBTCL and TPE, but recently I picked up some newer stuff (In the Passing Light of Day and Falling Home).  Honestly, I don't really like either one.  Need something that resembles the older stuff.

And Remedy Lane.

To be honest, though, all their albums are different.

Road Salts and Scarsick aren't :D Some good stuff sprinkled in but on a whole post be and pre-Passing Light is their absolute worst period, imo.

The first Road Salt is really great imo. The second one left me almost cold. Although it's the same style and kind of music I just don't connect with a lot of the songs.

I find the Road Salts to be much less interesting than everything that came before it. That being said, there are still some really good songs so I hardly wouldn't call them bad.
But Remedy Lane is so good, it makes me hard just thinking about how good it is.

Eh, I put Remedy Lane around mid table. Which is still great, just not that special by POS standards.

Out on a walk in the sun. Once I finish listening to To The Bone I'm going to be listening to Remedy Lane (2nd listen) and The Perfect Element (3rd listen) as I go  :tup

Thanks guys.  I got Entropia.  Good recommendation Adami, I like it.  It's different but still good.  I may have heard some RL a long time ago but honestly can't remember.  I'll give that a whirl too.   :tup

This documentary is a great way to really know Daniel, the band and how PoS works. You feel like you are a part of their routine and strangely this documentary works very well this way, it's very enjoyable. No, I don't know Daniel personally, but he really gives the impression of being a very genuine, coherent and talented guy all across this documentary.

There is soo much more... and much more to come

Eight years of following Daniel around must have yielded a lot of photage....

I saw them on Oct 09, 2009 when Pain of Salvation  playex Balsta Musikslott in Eskilstuna, Sweden. It's in the building where their rehersal studio is and where they recorded Road Salt. Wonder if any photage from that show will turn up.

Same here, i watched the prologue and thought that was it (it was like 30 minutes long), then I realized there is a lot more. I want to watch it but I don't know when I will find the time, the whole thing is several hours long.
