Pain of Salvation
CD Reviews
Review by Vivian Lee
In 1984, a band named "Reality" took the Swedish music scene's attention with not just the members' young age but their musical talent as well. Since then the band has had a few personnel changes and a name change.
One Hour By The Concrete Lake
Review by Gary Hill
Although this band seems to walk very closely between the line of prog and prog metal, this reviewer feels that the foot lands on the side of progressive rock.
Review by Julie Knispel
Sweden’s Pain of Salvation’s Scarsick is the follow up, nearly three years on, from the band’s critically acclaimed concept album Be. Released on InsideOut Music America, Scarsick sees the band continuing in thematic arenas, releasing an album that deals with the problems facing modern society.
DVD Reviews
Pain of Salvation - Be
Review by Josh Turner
This is one of the coolest music videos since Michael Jackson's Thriller. It's one of the best concepts since Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime. Without hesitation, I'd put this in step with Pink Floyd's The Wall.

The Flower Kings - Adam and Eve
Review by Steve Alspach
They're nothing if not prolific. Sweden's Flower Kings are back with another excellent offering of lengthy numbers and shorter, more accessible tunes.
