Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is a re-issue of the Progressive Metal band PAIN OF SALVATION's debut concept album "Entropia". Previously it has only been available in Asia on the Avalon label. It was very well received and got great reviews, and with this re-release on InsideOut, the rest of the world finally has the chance to hear it. The story and the album is divided into three chapters, each chapter containing four songs. The musicians are highly technically skilled and performs the songs as impressive as on the follow up concept album "One Hour By The Concrete Lake" (1998). The singer Daniel Gildenl÷w have a strong voice that reminds a little of Geoff Tate (QUEENSRYCHE). PAIN OF SALVATIOn's music is reminiscent to DREAM THEATER, ELDRITCH, QUEENSRYCHE, SAVATAGE and THRESHOLD. The highlights are the opening "! (foreword)", "Nightmist" and the closing track "Leaving Entropia (Epilogue)", but the album should be listened to as a whole. Recommended!
