PAIN Checks In From 'Country #18'

Swedish metallers PAIN, who are currently on the road in Europe as the support act for NIGHTWISH, have issued the following update:

"Two days ago we arrived to country #18, the last country for us on this tour. Our arrival day was also a day off which we spent with NIGHTWISH at their hotel. No memories from that at all, I'm afraid. The day after (April 18) we started to do preparations for the last show (more info of that later) and had a couple of nice walks in the rain. The show we did the same evening was really good. We all had a blast on stage and the audience was really in to it. Many thanks, Porto!!! After the show we went with NIGHTWISH to an afterparty we were invited to. We had a really good time. Thanks for the invitations!

"Today we are in Lisbon. The last stop on this tour, and we all feel a bit sad that it's almost over. These eight weeks has felt like two weeks and every day has been a blast. Still, I know everyone is longing for their families, their own beds and their own toilets.

"Now... for the last show. Usually bands and crew on a tour pull pranks on each other the last show, and I guess this tour is no exception. But we also have gone together with NIGHTWISH to pull a prank on YOU, the audience, which going to be something really special and for sure something that no one has ever seen/heard before and probably never will again. I can't wait...."

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.
