Some bands we just can’t get enough of and this definitely applies to the Swedes of In Flames. Formed in 1990, the band didn’t release its official debut ‘Lunar Strain’ until 1994. Pioneering a new genre that would later become known as melodic death metal, the band combined screams and growled vocals with guitar harmonies and synthesizers. Their 2011 release ‘Sounds of a Playground Fading’ confirmed the band’s shift to the more poppy side of metal with clean vocals and more synthesizers. The album catapulted In Flames into the big leagues. Their most recent full-length, ‘Battles’ (2016) picks up where its predecessor ‘Siren Charms’ (2014) left off, with highly accessible tracks that appeal to younger fans in particular. Add in their more brutal earlier work and you’ve got all the makings of a varied and enthralling live set. (#GMM19)
