Daniel Gildenlow and Pain Of Salvation are the subject of a documentary series that producers believe could run for multiple seasons.

The first episode of I Set Myself On Fire has been launched after Mapenzi Film spent eight years following the band and amassing material.

They say: “How many episodes or how many seasons it will be is still written in the stars. We are still in the process of editing the upcoming episodes, but we are determined to see this through.

“The film will primarily reflect Daniel’s utter dedication and conviction – and the consequences of this.”

The first episode opens with an interview from June 2007, in which Gildenlow talks about the band’s split with his brother, saying: “Kristofer moved to the Netherlands and it didn’t work out. It was much more complicated to do anything about it than if it had been anyone else. It’s not fun to kick your own brother out of the band.”

Future episodes of I Set Myself On Fire will be released on a fortnightly basis on Mapenzi Film’s website. Pain Of Salvation launch a revisited version of 2002 album Remedy Lane on July 1. They continue work on 10th album In The Passing Light Of Day.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
