... Pain of Salvation! Despite being somewhat of a fanboy, I only just found out last week that Road Salt had been released. But now that I've got it... There really isn't all that much that's "metal" about it, and IMO those few heavier moments really aren't the highlights of the album. (the quality has been butchered) Or for something a bit more... odd... One of the few metal bands that really does something different each album, and they do it so damn well!
