Pain of Salvation Posts Band Update

PAIN OF SALVATION frontman Daniel Gildenlöw 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 — 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."
