A brand PAIN song, entitled "Zombie Slam", has been posted online at this location. The track comes off the Swedish band's upcoming fifth full-length album, due in April via Roadrunner Records. According to a press release, the as-yet-untitled effort will feature sharper production, "heavier guitars, massive string movements and even more in-your-face vocals."

PAIN originally signed to Universal (Stockholm Records) in 1999 where the band achieved substantial sales, backed up with European touring activities with IN FLAMES, TIAMAT, ATROCITY and THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, among others.

Since PAIN leader Peter Tägtgren appeared on the music scene back in the early Nineties he has been a most extraordinary artist and producer. Known as guitarist and frontman of the hard-working touring band HYPOCRISY, he has also built a career as a producer, having worked with such bands as CELTIC FROST, IMMORTAL, DESTRUCTION, DIMMU BORGIR, DARK FUNERAL, and MARDUK, among others. Tägtgren has also delivered scores and made cameo appearances in many Swedish hit films, including "Sleepwalker", "Nolltolerans" and "Exit".

PAIN's latest album, "Dancing with the Dead", debuted at position No. 3 on the Swedish album chart in January 2005. The follow-up to 2002's "Nothing Remains the Same" was released in continental Europe in March 2005.
