Peter Tagtgren - musician, producer and creative brain behind Pain - is used to pushing boundaries. It's been a career that has involved fronting bands - notably Hypocrisy, and now Pain - or shaping their sounds - as he has done with Celtic Frost, Children Of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir and Immortal, among others. He has been described by Alternative Press as "the Rick Rubin of Scandinavian metal." Pain is a solo-project in which T gtgren played every instrument, culminating in a sound that is electronica infused metal with an ethereal ambience and setting Pain apart from other industrial based artists. A stellar cast of musicians have helped on 'Psalms Of Extinction'. In Flames bassist Peter Iwers, Children Of Bodom guitarist Alexei Laiho and Mot rhead drummer Mikkey Dee.
