I'm digging it. I mean, it's a bit out there, but I like most of it.

It is a bit out there. It's not nearly as standard and generic as say...........Earth Day.



The hell?

What I mean by out there is that, um, I don't like it when he talks in his songs. It pisses me off and ruins the flow, and FYI, Earth Day is the greatest song ever. Don't make fun of it. :P

I didn't make fun of it at all. I was pointing out the irony of you worshiping a song like Earth Day but then complaining that PoS is too "out there". It's like hating goth hipster crap but thinking Tim Burton is the best director ever.

I just don't like talking in the middle of a song. It's kind of what drags down Of Dust...and all of Remedy Lane. :lol

Then PoS is not for you. He talks a lot.

omfg this is like one of my favorite PoS moments EVER. The extended heavy part after that... holy shit.

Listened to Remedy Lane in the car, had only heard a few songs before.
Not really sure what to say, it was good (will obviously need more spins), one complaint however, would be that the songs I did know before (Undertow, Chain Sling and This Heart of Mine) sounded better on Second Death of, so I was slightly let down by their studio versions.

I also picked up both Entropia and One Hour... today, they were both fairly cheap.
Though I was out for picking up The Perfect Element, BE and Scarsick, but those were the 3 albums they didn't have in the store, kinda sad since I've seen all in the cd-store before, but I guess I gotta order those.
And I also ordered 12:5 today, should get it in a week or so. :)

Don't ever listen to BE, then. If you think things drag during their earlier stuff, you REALLY won't be able to handle BE. Which is why it's my least favorite album of theirs by far.

Zantera

Just finished listening to Entropia, really good album.
As a whole I prefer it over Remedy Lane, though that one probably had a few more standout tracks like Trace of Blood and Beyond the Pale.
However... FOREWORD and NIGHTMIST, that is all.

Okay so I just listened to One Hour By the Concrete Lake.
Liked it less then the others I've heard, though it was still good.

I think a lot of people complain about the sound/production, but I did not have a problem with that, I actually think it was fine on that side.
However, very few of the songs on the album stood out as being really good, obviously that can change over time, but going in beforehand, I didn't recognize a lot of the song-titles, so my initial opinion was that the band themselves maybe weren't too happy about the result of this album?
I love both Handful of Nothing and New Years Eve (heard both before on Second Death of), and Home sounded really good, but I don't think I've read the other songnames before. (like in setlists from concerts or so)
Do the band often play songs from this album live? and if so, which ones?

Gonna give Entropia another listen later.

Guys....

Was just about to post that.

QuoteFollowing the turbulent and successful release of "Road Salt One" in the year 2010 and the touring activities in its support which climaxed with shows in India and South America earlier this year, Sweden's PAIN OF SALVATION can now reveal the cover artwork and tracklisting for the "Road Salt Two" album as follows:

PAIN OF SALVATION – "Road Salt Two"

1. Road Salt Theme
2. Softly She Cries
3. Conditioned
4. Healing Now
5. To The Shoreline
6. Eleven
7. 1979
8. The Deeper Cut
9. Mortar Grind
10. Through The Distance
11. The Physics Of Gridlock
12. End Credits

"Road Salt Two" is scheduled for a September 26th, 2011 release date in Europe and an October 11th, 2011 release date in North America via InsideOutMusic.


I like the cover, but there's no Gone? Did they remove it?

I'm pretty thrilled that they decided to leave the other two Linoleum songs off.  It gives the Linoleum EP more of a reason to have existed, and though Gone and If You Wait were the two better songs I'd rather hear an album of mostly new material. 

Zantera

Yeah yeah, ignore my post. :P
I agree with Seth though, rather a new album with more new songs.

petrucci07

That album cover is beautiful.

And I hope The Physics of Gridlock is the big closer that Innocence wasn't; I remember when RS1 came out a few of us were disappointed that Innocence wasn't an epic closer in the vein of Enter Rain or Beyond the Pale.

I must say, I like this cover way more then the cover for Road Salt One.

I'm hoping for special edition with Gone and If You Wait. I guess that makes sense cause

Objective reasons:
1. Daniel wrote that he remixed those tracks for RS2
2. RS1 special edition was also just short What She Means To Me and No Way and Road Salt extended which wasn't a lot so two additional songs will be great this time
3. we will get both an album with new material and as bonus the rest of Linoleum songs.

Personal reasons:
4. I resisted listening to Linoleum for so long and all I'll get is Mortar Grind!!! :censored

I've just found this quote from Daniel BTW:

"If You Wait is one of my all-time favorite POS songs by the way. Destined for RS2.
Gone is still hanging in the balance, depends on how it works with the rest of the album I'd say..."

I really think that at least If You Wait will be part of RS2 special edition.

It looks like daniel is fucking the keyboard player on the album cover

/can never be unseen

Zantera

Album-rankings out of the ones I've heard/know:

1. Entropia
2. Road Salt
3. Remedy Lane
4. One Hour by the Concrete Lake

Ultimetalhead

Well, I guess there's no harm in listening to Linoleum now since it's only one song spoiled.

Fucking stoked though. RS1 kicks so much ass.

TheVoxyn

If You Wait is quite awesome imo. I wasn't that into it but once I saw it live it suddenly clicked somehow.

Ultimetalhead

After listening to the EP, I can quite easily say Mortar Grind was by far the best song. Daniel is wise to keep it.

wolfking

Agree, Mortar Grind is easily the best song on the EP.  I'm glad it's on the album.  I'm happy to keep the other two on the EP.  Love the cover too.  :metal
