Pain is an industrial metal band from Sweden. The band started out as a hobby project for front man Peter Tägtgren, whose idea was to fuse metal with techno influences. Tägtgren, who is also the vocalist/guitarist of Hypocrisy and producer of his own The Abyss studios, is the only current member. Pain's self titled debut was released in 1997, and since then Pain has released four more albums, and a DVD. In early February of 2006, blabbermouth.net reported that Pain had signed with Roadrunner Records.
