Great album. I was very worried that they wouldn't be able to follow their last album "Fatal Design", but they have done so brilliantly. The album has some heavier elements, and is 'riffier' than their earlier albums. However, if you listen to DieVersity, Fatal Design and then Painstained, it is a fairly clear progression. Those who have enjoyed watching the band evolve will certainly appreciate it.
This is their first album to gain a UK release, so they'll come here to tour it - which is great news for those who know them! But if you haven't heard them yet, at least give it a chance on myspace or lastfm.
Think poisonblack but better, or a male fronted nightwish with less keyboards. Even FFAF's new album or Still Remains (without the screaming).
In short: awesome. Instant satisfication "entwined" (boom tish) with prolonged listenability.

Great 6th album from Finnish rockers

Painstained is slightly heavier than previous works, more metal in places; more detuned and aggressive guitars. More Americanised, and nowhere near as immediate as previous albums.
Some existing fans may be a little unsure at first, or actually be disappointed initially, but it's a real grower. Still has some great catchy choruses, and awesome vocals from Mika.
Fans who love how the band have evolved and are journeying with them as they become harder and rockier will love Painstained...but sometimes only after lots of listens.
