This September 9th, Peter Tagtgren will be releasing a new PAIN album, titled Coming Home. Peter released a new single the other day too, called Black Knight Satellite. Interestingly, his son Sebastian Tagtgren will be the studio drummer for the new album. I didn’t even know he had a kid (Where did this homunculus of a son come from?!) I wonder whether Peter Tagtgren will take his son on tour with him as well, although I doubt it… Randomly appearing progeny aside, I thought it was fitting to celebrate the new album with the top ten PAIN songs according to moi.
The tracks below are listed in order from The Very Best to one-of-the-best, with the album in which they were first released in brackets.
- Just Think Again (Psalms of Extinction)
- 12:42 (Rebirth)
- Close My Eyes (Nothing Remains the Same)
- It’s Only Them (Nothing Remains the Same)
- Nothing (Dancing with the Dead)
- Don’t Count Me Out (Dancing with the Dead)
- The Tables Have Turned (Dancing with the Dead)
- Monster (You Only Live Twice)
- I’m Going in (Cynic Paradise)
- Computer God (Psalms of Extinction)
Honorable mentions go to the song Tear it up from the album Dancing With the Dead and Suicide Machine from the album Rebirth.
