4 stars PAIN OF SALVATION hit me in 2000 with "The Perfect Element" essential and unique at the time. I am not going to list the following CDs, the personal problems of the group but it is sure that this translates into the musical notes given since, in the released atmosphere, in the innovation always ...

5 stars 'Panther' is studio album #11 in the 23 year recording history of classic prog metal band Pain of Salvation. They have two top-10 albums in our Prog Metal subgenre chart - 'Remedy Lane' (2002) and 'The Perfect Element' (2000). Their debut 'Entropia' (1997), and 'Be' (2004) are also in the top 25. Th ...

4 stars Goosebumps, pure body rattling goosebumps is exactly what I felt upon hearing "Unfuture," the second track on Panther, Pain of Salvation's 11th studio record.

3 stars The glory days of 1997-2004 are definitely gone for Pain of Salvation. Yes, 2017's "In the Passing Light of Day" was a nice effort (almost a return-to-form) but 2020's "Panther" feels like an electronic solo album by Daniel Gildenlow. Most songs are "songs" in the traditional sense - they come ... (read more)

5 stars Albums like Panther are the reason why I love progressive rock and metal music. Albums that, the first time you spin them, leave you confused and disoriented, unsure whether you have just listened to a masterpiece you do not yet fully understand, or to an album you'll end up loathing. And so you imm ... (read more)

4 stars Panther has excellent musicianship, fantastic vocals, and solid songwriting. Another Pain Of Salvation release is a good thing since the band has blown me away on previous releases. Fans of the group will find great music on Panther since it does fall in line with their other progressive metal relea ... (read more)
