PAIN's 'Nothing Remains The Same' Certified Gold In Sweden

"Nothing Remains The Same", the 2002 album from the Swedish "hard electronic metal" band PAIN led by HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tgtgren has been certified gold in the group's home country for sales in excess of 30,000 copies.

Commented Tgtgren: "Thanks a lot to all the painheads in Sweden for this award! I'm happy to see that one can still sell CDs these days."

In other news, PAIN's November 13 concert at Debaser Medis in Stockholm, Sweden will be filmed for a forthcoming DVD.

PAIN's latest album, "You Only Live Twice", was released on June 3 in Europe and June 21 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
