THE SEA WITHIN - Supergroup against will

13. July 2018

THE SEA WITHIN - Supergroup wider Willen

With The Sea Within, Roine Stolt has gathered a veritable all-star ensemble - with members of The Flower Kings, Pain Of Salvation and The Aristocrats. Names like Daniel Gildenlöw, Marco Minnemann or Jonas Reingold raise the expectations of fans of progressive music. The band initiator is aware of this and therefore tries to keep the ball flat. What would not be necessary at all, because the self-titled debut is a stylistically versatile double album between prog, art pop, jazz rock and film music, in which the joy of the participants is clearly noticeable.

PAIN OF SALVATION "In The Passing Light Of Day"

09. February 2017

Great art often emerges from confrontation with extreme situations. At Pain Of Salvation mastermind Daniel Gildenlöw it was a life-threatening streptococcal infection at the beginning of 2014, the consequences of which the 43-year-old Swede had to heal in hospital for months... and it's not surprising that "In The Passing Light Of Day" now also bears witness to anger, despair, resignation and hope. It is without a doubt Gildenlöw's most personal album.

PAIN OF SALVATION - In the Face of Death

With the album "In The Passing Light Of Day" the Swedish progressive metalers Pain Of Salvation return to their roots after years of stylistic excursions. That they can do this is anything but self-evident: at the beginning of 2014 Daniel Gildenlöw fell ill with a life-threatening streptococcal infection. The singer/guitarist had to spend several months in hospital. In a very personal interview he told eclipsed how this time has shaped the new album and what is currently going on with the 43-year-old exceptional musician.

eclipsed: Daniel, almost three years have passed since your severe infection. How are you today?
