NIGHTWISH Performs PAIN 'Cover' In Lisbon; Video Available

Swedish metallers PAIN, who just completed a European tour as the support act for NIGHTWISH, have issued the following update:

"Wow!!! The show last night [Saturday, April 19 in Lisbon, Portugal] was... special. To all of you who weren't there, Peter [Tgtgren, PAIN guitarist/vocalist] brought everybody from NIGHTWISH on stage before our last song and we had THEM play 'Shut Your Mouth' while we just enjoyed the situation! Suprised?! Later before NIGHTWISH's last song we dressed up as waiters and entered the stage with shots of Raki. Suprise again. And as an grand finale we had rehearsed 'Wish I Had An Angel' with Peter on drums and David as an second guitarist while the others just.. were mustard seeds. A special gold star to all the people of Portugal. You are great and we love you! After the show when all of YOU left the Coliseum we had a hell of a last after-party. Everything that was left had to go."

PAIN recently recruited Ren Sebastian (photo) from ICONDEMN to play guitar on the second leg of the NIGHTWISH tour.

IN FLAMES bassist Peter Iwers makes a guest appearance on two songs on PAIN's latest album, "Psalms of Extinction".

PAIN's video for the track "Zombie Slam" is available for viewing at this location. The clip was shot in February 2007 in Los Angeles by Ralf Strathmann. Ralf previously worked as a director for artists like CHILDREN OF BODOM, APOCALYPTICA and SOILWORK. He is also a photographer for such bands as HIM, AEROSMITH and BLINK 182, to name but a few.
