Pain Of Salvation’s Daniel Gildenlöw checked in with the following comment: “So, we can’t come and play for you, but in this weird time of separation, we are all somehow closer to one another than ever. Please invite us into your hearts and homes in the shape of these two albums that are finally released on vinyl, after all these years. We know, judging from the number of questions and requests over the years, how important this day is for many of you, and it makes us very happy to be able to bring you the news. Your. Wait. Is. Over.

“At http://painofsalvation.com/store we will have signed colored versions available, 100 copies worldwide only, and the first 30 copies of each version will be numbered and have a handwritten lyric quote on the front cover. All pre-sales come with two shop-specific postcards.”

Additionally, Pain Of Salvation’s drummer Léo Margarit prepared a special drum playthrough video for the BE song “Nihil Morari” to enhance the announcement of these vinyl reissues.

Léo Margarit commented: “I played ‘Nihil Morari’ for the first time when I pressed “record” on my pro tools system for that video recording...While I knew all about its intricacies for having listened to it just about a million times, it proved rather difficult to perform well right away...! Nonetheless it was really fun to do and I hope I’m making Johan Langell proud!”
