Finnish metallers PAIN CONFESSOR have completed work on a new three-song demo. The sessions were engineered and helmed by the bandmembers themselves, with the mixing and mastering was overseen by Janne Saksa of Studio Sound Supreme.Commented the band: "[The demo] was supposed to be four songs but then we woke up and said to ourselves, 'A standard demo has featured four songs since like '70s so why not leave out one song and just do away with three instead?' Sure, we could have just skipped the whole damn demo but that would be so METALLICA, it isn't even funny." The demo features the following songs: 01. Red on White
02. Tarnished Halo

The songs were recorded at the group's home studio and were mixed by Saksa, who "really made this work by mixing the whole thing and adding his own unique and special touch that we really have missed," according to the band. PAIN CONFESSOR parted ways with Megamania Records and is currently seeking a new label home. The band's third album, "Purgatory of the Second Sun", entered the Finnish chart at position No. 15 back in March 2007. "Purgatory of the Second Sun" was recorded at Fantom studio and was previously described by the band as "raw and furious." PAIN CONFESSOR's "Ne Plus Ultra" single entered the Finnish national chart at position No. 1. In addition to the title cut, the single included a cover of SURVIVOR's "Eye of the Tiger", which had "gone through a serious metal facelift," according to the group.
