Ending Themes (On the Two Deaths of Pain of Salvation) is a live album and documentary by progressive metal band Pain of Salvation. It was released on January 26, 2009 with a DVD version released on March 3, 2009. The DVD release has a double disc feature. The first disc features an 80-minute documentary of the band's 2005 world tour directed by Per Hillblom while the second disc features the full concert video from the Paradiso show recorded on March 2, 2007. A Limited Edition will also be released that will include a double audio CD version of the Amsterdam concert. The CD version was released independent of the DVDs as well.
"The DVD is starting to come together, and will consist of two separate discs — one will be the live show from our last tour, and the other one will be a documentary following the band on the 2005 tour, which marked the end of that line-up. The fact that the band has seen such major changes the last two years made it very difficult emotionally to invest time and energy in this product, and it wasn't until the documentary draft was proposed by Per Hillblom that I started to see what this DVD was trying to communicate. We still have a few commentary tracks to record but we are starting to see the end of it."—Daniel Gildenlöw
The DVD is named in recognition of the two lineup changes that happened in the past few years. The first being at the end of the 2005 world tour (The First Death Of) where Kristoffer Gildenlöw left the band due to not being able to attend rehearsals since he lived in a different country than the rest of the band. He was temporarily replaced by Simon Andersson. The second change came at the end of the 2007 world tour (The Second Death Of) where Johan Langell left the band to concentrate on family commitments. He has since been replaced by Léo Margarit for the next studio album and the foreseeable future.
