PAIN OF SALVATION have returned! Years have passed since the release of "Road Salt Two" back in 2011 and fans’ hope for new PAIN OF SALVATION studio album has truly been tested. But their perseverance, as well as that of Daniel Gildenlöw and his band, has been rewarded with perhaps the most stunning album of their career: 2017’s “In The Passing Light Of Day”. Working together with acclaimed producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, etc.) at Dugout Studio in Sweden, the band have crafted an album that sees them returning to their much praised heavier sound, featuring the syncopated rhythms, glorious melodies, and intensely personal themes that PAIN OF SALVATION fans have long loved about the band. Inextricably linked to the near fatal illness that band-leader Daniel Gildenlöw spent much of the first half of 2014 recovering from, the album is an altogether darker and more impassioned journey. Taking the hospital bed as a narrative hub, the lyrical and musical themes touch on all the conflicting feelings that run through a person's mind when presented with the prospect of death and the passing of life. That’s not to say however that all this record presents is blackness. “This album also shows the beauty of the transition, of the inevitable. And of the hope of a tomorrow, the hope of change, no matter how frail and naive that hope may be.” Transferred to the music of PAIN OF SALVATION, keeping hope fortunately pays off!
The album is available as a special edition 2CD Mediabook (including expanded 48-pages booklet, several in-depth texts by conceptual author Daniel Gildenlöw, demo material & band commentary tracks), gatefold 180 gram 2LP vinyl plus CD as bonus, jewelcase CD, digital album.
