There are at least five bands called "Pain". 1. Sweden's Pain is an industrial metal band. The band started out as a hobby project for Hypocrisy front man Peter Tägtgren, whose idea was to fuse metal with electronic influences.
Tägtgren is the only official member. Pain's self titled debut was released in 1996, and since, Pain has released five more albums (one album featuring Anette Olzon from Nightwish), nine singles and a DVD. "MUSIC IS everything to me. I've been through two divorces and a whole world of shit because of music but still it is the most important thing in the world to me.
I'd rather have music than anything else." So speaks 36-year-old Peter Tägtgren, musician, producer and creative brain behind Pain. His has been a life immersed in music, in pushing boundaries, and taking ideas to both their logical and illogical extremes. 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. It's a calling that has made him one of Sweden's most respected musicians and producers.Make Pain Playlist
