Norway's PICTURES OF PAIN, is a melodic metal band with a unique sound and style (and TONS of headbanging power)!
It is impossible to tag just one musical label to the band’s style as their style has a wide spectrum ranging from slow to hard and aggressive with the vocals alternating between clean, screaming and growling. A truly powerful metal act! The album was mastered by King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRocque in his own Sonic Train Studios.

"it sure does boast some pretty impressive moments"
An absolutely beautiful composition through and through. The riffs and melodies are so tight and well crafted, with soaring lyrics that pull the whole story together. When I first heard Across the Ancient Dessert, I stopped what I was doing and my heart skipped a beat. I think it encapsulated every emotion I had reading the Chain of Dogs for the first time. That series means something special to me. I was already loving the album, and this song sold me immediately. This is really worth a listen. kapman
