In Flames are the titans of modern metal,ever since they were formed in 1990 - the band has evolved into a gigantic metal machine and have become a huge influential band to many new melodic thrashbands on this planet. I still consider "Reroute to remain" as their best record so far but the new album "Come clarity" comes second coz it?s a bit stronger than the previous "Soundtrack to your escape" that didn?t land on the same plateau as RTR. When the band entered the stage on the Swedish Grammy Awards in 2003,they totally blew away every live act that night with "Cloud connected" and did the same on the the Swedish P3 Gold Award with the new song "Take this time" this year. It?s like unleashing a beast that will eat anything in it?s way,In Flames explode on stage! This is how I want singer Anders Frid?n and Co to sound like when I hear the brutal melodic mayhem of "Leeches","Reflect the storm","Come clarity","Crawl through knives" and "Vacuum". Cool thing and rather odd that Swedish pop donna Lisa Miskovsky is guesting on the duet of the fast "Dead end",not one of the best songs on this album but quite good anyhow. The new and 8th album also features more guitarharmonies than usual from In Flames,perhaps it?s a bit more uptempo too......but these Swedes has never been slowtempo if you know what I mean.
