Wow man. Should be good.

I don't actually understand the listing of that last UK show; PoS say it's in London, SeeTickets says it's in Glasgow.

That's probably because there's a "The Garage" in Glasgow too and SeeTickets are retarded.

Yeah just order from HMV tickets (which the PoS facebook links to anyway) which gets it right.

Pain of Salvation was really awesome live, just came home from the show.
The negative part? That they only played for 45 minutes, but being the opening band it was expected, and Daniel said that they would come back in the spring, so I am excited for that.

The setlist (no surprises)

1. Softly She Cries
2. Ashes
3. Conditioned
4. 1979
5. To the Shoreline
6. Diffidentia (Breaching the Core)
7. Linoleum
8. No Way

Daniel said that he wanted to play Kingdom of Loss but was overruled by the others, instead they played Diffidentia which is just one of my favorite PoS-songs, such a kickass tune, especially live.
Mostly Road Salt songs (not surprising), and while I really like Ashes, it's not among my favorite "classics", and seeing as they only played two older songs, I might have enjoyed another song more.
But it's a minor complaint, if I see them again, I get more old songs. :D
Strong performance by the band, sad that Johan will leave, seeing as he is such a stage-persona :(
But oh well, show was great, even got a pic with Daniel after the show, so epic stuff!

I guess I'll give RS2 another chance. After one listen I wasn't impressed at all. I love RS1 though so we'll see.

RS2 is much better then RS1 IMO, while I do love the first, I think the second is even better, I would probably pick all RS2 songs over all RS1 songs, except for maybe No Way and Sisters. (which are my favorites on RS1)

But still, RS2 is my fourth favorite PoS album after TPE, Entropia and BE. :)

Loved RS2 on the first listen, and then I stopped liking it. Now I like it again. Listening to them both back to back is a pretty cool experience.
Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

hey hmm this album has bonus songs right hmm let's listen to them in context of the album

Break Darling Break - oh god I'm so glad this was excluded from the album. First listen tells me this is the 2nd worst PoS song, only avoiding the worst spot because it's so much shorter than spitfall. Nope, I will never listen to this song again.

Of Salt - Oh hey it's got the same melodies as Of Dust. surprised that I didn't expect that actually. ...why was this cut from the album? Should've stayed there. Yeah recycled melodies but who gives a damn, it's done with a different atmosphere so.

seriously though
Break Darling Break is a crappy song.

Break Darling Break has recurring themes too, therefore I like it included in the album.  Also, Spitfall is excellent.

Breaking Darling Break is one of the best songs I've heard from RS2.

Listening to RS1 right now and then I will listen to RS2, let's see if I can get into these guys. I enjoyed them when I saw them open for Opeth, Daniel always seems so energetic on stage, both with PoS and Transatlantic.

I've decided to start with these albums because I heard a couple of songs a while ago and I liked the bluesy feel, plus I've also heard a couple of songs from Remedy Lane and I didn't like those as much.

So, I've come to the conclusion that Road Salt 2 is really great and Pain of Salvation are great live.( Even thoug the mix at the concert i attended was kinda crappy... Their second singer war shouting into the microphone and I couldn't hear a thing he was singing, and then the bass was too loud to...) Daniel had a stunning vocal performance.

If anyone's interested, there's a really nice interview with a lot more info on the recent departures/many other things.  It begins with the link, but he really gets into the Fredrik/Johan related matters in the 3rd and 4th parts.

Great interview. Daniel came across really well I thought.
"Once he had forests and mountains that were only his - listening to him. Once he would run through the summer days catching memories for ages to come. Now he is dressing this naked floor with his flesh and blood, and time passes by. His trade of pain might just have lead him to deal with consequence for some change as time passes by"

Great interview indeed, some interesting stuff in it.
I've always liked Faceculture, I think they ask better/deeper questions then the standard "how is it going?" etc. :P

Great interview, I thought it was really interesting about the sound engineer pressure to have a "sound".

edit: he also came across as very well spoken.

But oh well, show was great, even got a pic with Daniel after the show, so epic stuff!

Went to see Opeth and PoS in Oslo two days ago. Been a long time since I've listened to either band actually. But I just happened to walk by a poster and thought, why not?! Called a friend who's a huge Opeth fan so ofc he was up for it =P

I think PoS had the exact same setlist in this show, though I'm not sure.. I lost track of PoS since Scarsick really. Haven't heard a second of RS2, but I have got a couple of listens to RS1. Still, I was pleasantly surprised at the concert. Never seen them live before, and most of the songs really rocked live! Guess I have to check out RS1&2. If I'm not totally mistaken I really, really enjoyed songs 4,5 and 6. (I didnt catch the first song, as I was just entering). I was really surprised at the awesome live mix too. So they nailed that show pretty well as far as I'm concerned :)

Opeth was really cool too. Though they didn't play anything from Ghost Reveries, which is my favorite album. Kinda sad, but then again I've seen GR played live before ;-)

Also .. I think DG said it was the very last show for both Johan and one of the other band members. Johan celebrated this by undressing, throwing his clothes to the audience, and posing in his underwear. (Sorry to dissapoint, by I couldn't get my phone out for a picture fast enough  :lol)

That's cool, awesome that you enjoyed it!  :D

On another note, PoS just announced a gig here in Gothenburg in March again, so I'm gonna buy tickets ASAP, probably tomorrow.
Can't wait for seeing them again, with a longer set (which leaves much more room for them to do it 'their' way, and more variety in terms of the setlist)  :angel:

I've bought tickets for the show in Gothenburg in March now, can't wait to see them again!
Yeah it feels a bit sad that Johan and Fredrik will leave, but I trust Daniel in finding two new members that can do a great job, hopefully we wont miss Johan and Fredrik as much as we think.

All in all, really excited about the possibility to get more older songs, don't get me wrong now (I love RS2 and like RS1), but if we can get a few classics into the set, I would be really happy.
Also, from RS2 they didn't really play any of my favorites (top3 on the album would be Physics of Gridlock, The Deeper Cut and Healing Now), so hopefully they will bring out those.

Some form of fanboy/won't happen-wish setlist for the tour:

1. Road Salt Theme (Intro)
2. Softly She Cries
3. Conditioned
4. Foreword
5. Her Voices
6. Healing Now
7. Sisters
8. Winning a War
9. Home
10. Trace of Blood
11. The Deeper Cut
12. This Heart of Mine/Song For the Innocent (Brickwork type of thing)
13. Flame to the Moth
14. Lilium Cruentus
15. The Perfect Element
---
16. The Physics of Gridlock

I don't know, something like that.. though it will certainly be less old stuff and more new stuff.
The only thing I really wish for is no Hallelujah and hopefully not too many Scarsick songs, mostly because I think a cover is a waste if you look at all the songs they could play instead, and as for Scarsick, there are a few songs I'm not so keen on.

They really need to start playing Curiosity live.  It's probably the most rocking, energetic piece in their catalog, perfect for a live setting, and yet they've never done it.

Just posting to say that TPE Pt.1 is just as amazing as the day it clicked for me.  Her Voices through King of Loss are absolute perfection.
In high school my buddies and I built a Van Der Graaf generator.  You know, to get girls.
