Album Review: Pain of Salvation – ‘PANTHER’ (2020)

Album art for Pain of Salvation’s PANTHER

I recently reviewed the recently-released Pain of Salvation album, ‘PANTHER’ for Abrasive Noise. Read a snippet below.

After 2017’s In the Passing Light of Day, Swedish progressive metal stalwarts Pain of Salvation have returned with their latest opus, Panther due for release on 28th August 2020. As established fans will be aware, this latest LP brings another reinvented sound by the band and is the first since 2011’s Road Salt Two to feature guitarist Johan Hallgren, who re-joined in 2017. Those who will have seen him live will be keen to see how he sounds in this latest release.
