preview - review by Gianrichy "Richy" Giamboi ___
So here it is,
the fourth born of Tätgrens Child Pain. I really didn’t expect too
much from this cd, I couldn’ t really imagine, where Pete wanted to go
after the last Pain output. After hearing two
songs live during the last Pain tour, I still had my doubts. Now I can
say, these were totally unjustified.
with the dead is Pain as its best!! Where at first listening I thought
to hear placative popsongs I discovered marvellous compositions packed
in a perfect sound suit. Jet the whole production almost blowed me
first song is in my humble opinion one the most uninteresting of the
whole cd, but after that, Pain
get off with the first single output “Same old song”. What a
bombastic and catchy song guys!! After having listened to it for at
least fifty times this keyboard refrain is still in my head, there is no
old Song” Pain continue its victorious march through the twelve
songs. Also in “Nothing” and “The
tables have turned” to tomention the remarcable refrain and
the crescendo till the choruses.
my favourite song “Not afraid to die”.
Its bridge almost made me weep, I’ m serious! This song
reminds me at the same time of Paradise Lost and Zeromancer, with this
heavenly bridge that could come from the techno Godfather from “RMB””.
Now time for the “Dancing with the dead”.
The titletrack is simply another smash hit, that rotate in ones head
again and again!!
it up” shows a more simplicistic side of Pain, not a
favourite song to me. But with “Bye/Die”
everithing is ok again, energy, energy and more energy!! “My
misery” is a little bit slower and a good opportunity to
take breath, while being carried on the wings of its cool keyboard
good day to die” is the last song that hasn’ t the
quality of the rest. A little bit boring in my opinion...
After all I can
say “Dancing with the Dead”
can be counted as Pain best output till now.!! The sound is still characterized
by the symbiosis of hard guitars, a lot of electronic that gives its own
colours to every song and the very characteristic clean but still
aggressive vocals that make of every singalong part a headbanger
and at the same time dance adapted hit! I think (and hope) Pain
will crack the charts, and give a statemant of hard music to the world!!
Thumbs up!! A definitively must for every tolerant metal head!!
