Incarcerated rated 8.6/10 @ Metal Imperium! →
Very rough translation powered by Google Translate: First things first, though this release date since 2012, it is never too late to discover good music, even more so when Incarcerated, the fourth album from Finnish Pain Confessor stayed away from any recognition that he deserved. What is shame because the band created something very interesting here. The need to label their sound, the tag...

Stalker Magazine reviews Incarcerated (9,5/10)
Haste makes waste – which could be the motto for this CD as well as for its review. Pain Confessor from Finnish Hämeenlinna are back after a 4-year-hiatus, with a powerful album that almost failed to capture our attention… And this would have been an unforgivable mistake because Incarcerated is a great album that naturally made it to Inferno Magazine´s Top 10 in the end of 2012. Follow the...

“Dark keyboarding, stellar guitar work, emotional screams, and a barrage of perfectly woven double bass that collectively seals the deal.” Rating 9.2/10

Moro! Mitä Jaska? →
Jaska interviewed about different stuff (incl. Pain Confessor and the new album) It’s unfortunately in Finnish only so use Bing to translate it and remain clueless. Don’t worry, he just says it’s been sort of boring to be part of Pain Confessor and the album sucks, record label is sort of meh and he would like to move to Canada.
Vocals and keyboard/synth-parts are near completion. Janne “Germany” Saksa, also known as Janne Maksa, is taking over the mixing process today. The whole album is steamrolling into existence and without hesitation we can say it is The Album None Of You Are Expecting. This is certainly a new beginning for us! We have titles like Grief, Oceans of Sickness, Jade, Tarnished Halo, Inward,...
