Pictures of Pain joins our roster!

We are pleased to be welcoming one more band into our roster, Norway’s Pictures of Pain!

We’re taking it up a notch here as the band’s style is a bit more on the extreme side of metal, however they have a truly unique sound and style (and TONS of headbanging power)! It is impossible to tag just one musical label to this band’s style as their influences cover a wide spectrum of different metal genres, ranging from slow to hard and aggressive with the vocals alternating between clean, screaming and growling.

Originally formed in 2005 the band has so far released two demos and has performed live numerous times and supported bands like Volbeat, Kamelot, Doro, Scar Symmetry, Keep of Kalessin, Ensiferum, Leaves’ Eyes, and others. In March 2007  they made it to the Wacken Metal Battle Final.

Their album, titled “The Reckoning” is due for release on November 26th and was mastered by King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRocque in his own Sonic Train Studios. The CD version includes an additional two bonus tracks of older demos and will also be available for digital download through several major mp3 stores.
