PAIN OF SALVATION - Frontman Offers Band Update
PAIN OF SALVATION frontman Daniel GildenlÃ¶w has posted the following message
on the band's official web site:
"As some of you might have heard or read already, I am all busy writing
music and lyrics. I am completely wound up from all the ideas and different
angles and approaches running though me and/or presenting themselves to
me at the moment, and I can't wait to share it all with our fans.
"We have finally come to the point where we have regular rehearsals every
week. For so long we have been playing with in-ear monitor systems and I
have been so happy about that and did not miss amplifiers a bit. Now, when
presenting new music to the rest of the band, I felt it would probably be
wiser to have amplifiers and a PA again, to hear the sounds more separated
and true in all frequencies. And you know what, when I cranked that amp
up and felt the lower frequencies pound and work on my chest, I found myself
with a big stupid smile on my face. It was like, after driving a Honda Civic
for two years, stepping into a Mustang Shelby and rev the engine. That raw
power just sends you off on a little trip, all reason aside. That first
day of rehearsals, I promise you, there was not one single band in Sweden
that were louder than us. And man, we rocked.
"Several guitar brands have contacted me about wanting me to cooperate with
them during the last year or two. So far, I have stuck to the Parker, which
I fell in love with back in 1996. Now, however, I have been convinced. The
whole band will soon be playing the same brand, with instruments customized
according to our own specifications. And not only that â€” together with
this company I will develop a guitar series called Elements, consisting
of five slightly different models built according to my requirements. The
elements will of course be Fire, Water, Earth, Wind and... Perfect. Every
element will be available but limited to ten copies each (five 6-strings
and five 7-strings). Start saving your money because these guitars will
be killers, and the most beautiful guitars I have personally set eyes on.
Who's making them? Well, I am going to have to put you on hold on that for
now, but stay tuned for the official news about it in a few weeks...
"Our international fan club, Machinah, is coming along real nice, and a
new copy of their fanzine is ready to hit the fan club members any time
now. The column by me is called 'Lawn Mowing - Natural Selection in Progress'
this time around. If you haven't subscribed already, don't wait any longer.
Later this year there will be a little extra surprise for all the members
too. Man, I already dig 2006."
