IN FLAMES picture
In Flames is a Swedish alternative metal band from Gothenburg, formed in 1990. The band's earlier work is considered to be a major influence to the melodic death metal music genre, although they have distanced themselves from the melodic death metal sound. Since the band's conception in 1990, they have received numerous awards and released eleven studio albums and one live DVD. The band has enjoyed increased popularity in recent years, both in its native Sweden and internationally. As of 2008, In Flames has sold over two million records worldwide.

It is always interesting to research bands such as In Flames on the web, as to say that they have upset a few people with their change in musical direction is something of an understatement. Like many others, I was incredibly impressed with these guys when they burst out of Sweden in the Nineties, so it was something of a shock to come across them again many years later and discover just how far they had changed. Now, change isn’t necessarily bad, and it can often be good, but then there are also the concerns that the band haven’t changed so much as having left the planet altogether and gone into a new universe. Possibly one where they have been starved of oxygen which could explain what they are doing now.

But, I think the largest issue here is that the band is called “In Flames” and there is a skull on the cover. If one discounts those two then it is possible to view the band in a quite different light, and think of them more as a strange My Chemical Romance and Killswitch Engage hybrid. This is Alternative Metal with a larger emphasis on the former than the latter, and the result is something that feels created and false, as if it has been written solely for radio play and charts, as opposed to anything that the band believes in. They may say “we are the truth that hurts the most” in “The Truth”, but the real truth is that here is a band that has lost their way and while they have probably gained a great deal of new fans as a result, the old ones are long gone.

Like many metalheads I’ve always had a soft spot for the melodic death metal of Swedish band In Flames. They have built a massive reputation over the years, and their live shows are renowned for their intensity. But, due to living at the end of the world, and not having easy access to music magazines, I don’t always keep up with the scene as I should, and it has been a while since I last heard any of their material. What we have here is a live album, released in 2016, of a 2015 concert from their hometown, so I settled down, plugged in my headphones and turned it up.

A few songs in and I started searching the web to see what other people were saying about this album, and everyone seemed to be agreed that this is just a tad short of awesome, and mighty fine on so many levels. This means that I must be the only one who thinks the guitars are too low in the mix, and that the drums and vocals are taking too much prominence, and that the material simply wasn’t what I was personally expecting. Much of this is from the latest albums, which admittedly I hadn’t hard, but I swear there are times when they morphed into a heavy version of My Chemical Romance, which isn’t what I was expecting at all! Of course, they aren’t the first band to change since they first started, and they have been around for a long time (and have released a couple of other live albums to boot), but this isn’t an album I could get into and enjoy. Looks like I’m in the minority, won’t be the first time, and I doubt it will be the last. For fans only.

IN FLAMES Siren Charms

Album · 2014 · Alternative Metal

UMUR
"Siren Charms" is the 11th full-length studio album by Swedish metal act In Flames and the successor to "Sounds of a Playground Fading" from 2011. The album was released through Sony/Epic Music in September 2014. Since the last album, which was recorded as a four-piece, new guitarist Niclas Engelin has been added to the lineup.

Melody was always a key element of In Flames sound, and even when they changed their style with "Reroute to Remain: Fourteen Songs of Conscious Insanity (2002)", the melodic element was intact. On "Siren Charms" they add an element of commercial accessibility, which they have hinted at several times since 2002, but never fully realized. "Siren Charms" is simply an instantly catchy and memorable album.

The 11 tracks on the 44:30 minutes long album all feature simple vers/chorus structures. Typically with huge anthemic choruses, and more anonymous verses. It´s not always a tried and true formula like that works, but it works well here, and even though I occasionally can´t help think that it´s all a bit generic and I would love to have heard a surprise moment just a couple of times during the playing time, In Flames manages to pull it off in great style and as a listener I´m entertained all the way through the album.

The musicianship is on a high level on all positions. Anders Fridén´s Marilyn Manson meets Jonathan Davis type vocals are a bit of an aquired taste, but I think he´s getting better on each album since he changed his vocal style, and on "Siren Charms" his performance is often on a very high level (both his clean vocals and his more raw vocals). The band is overall a very tight unit, and although the riffs aren´t always that interesting or memorable (the band obviously focus more on overall composition, than on writing killer riffs), the band always manage to elevate them to a higher level. The same can be said about the rhythm section. They play rhythmic material we´ve heard played in a similar style time and time again, but manage to pull it off in a convincing manner.

So upon conclusion "Siren Charms" isn´t the most innovative release by In Flames, but it´s damn catchy, very well produced, and very well played. At this point I don´t know if the longivity of the album will suffer because of the relavitely simple/generic song structures, but right now it´s an instantly enjoyable listen, that doesn´t require too much attention from the listener (not because it´s not interesting, but because it´s not that complex), and sometimes that´s what I need, a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

Warthur
Black-Ash Inheritance is a good but not great EP which contains a brace of songs in In Flames' usual style of melodic death metal. Those who know In Flames - or the "Gothenberg" approach in general - will find few surprises here, and if you already know their sound you probably already know whether you'll enjoy this one or not. Most recent CD editions of The Jester Race include the material from here as bonus tracks so there is little compelling reason to buy it separately if you already have that album. Fans will most likely want to track it down, but if you're new to the band there are easier places to start exploring their music.

This melodic death metal album from In Flames is widely respected, but personally I can't get into it. I can tell it's a competently recorded and performed piece, and the combination of death metal aesthetic and Iron Maiden riffing is certainly interesting, but taken as a whole the thing just ends up leaving me cold. I guess for me this is an album that falls between the cracks - too abrasive and harsh to work as my melodic metal fix, but not brutal enough to really satisfy my death metal urge. Still, I'm sure those who are particularly into this sort of mixture will find a lot to like about this.
