Sweden’s leading metal band has never stopped moving forward during the more than 20 years they’ve been performing. Earlier this week, In Flames teased the return of their breakthrough album “Clayman” for its 20th anniversary. During the stream, you can purchase an exclusive shirt from the Clayman vault during a 72 hour pop-up.
The melodic death metal of the band’s early days has since evolved into a unique expression, manifested in 14 albums like A Sense of Purpose, Sounds of a Playground Fading, Siren Charms and their latest release, I, The Mask recorded in Los Angeles with multi Grammy nominated producer, Howard Benson. 2019’s I, The Mask charted #1 in Sweden and Austria, #2 in Germany and #1 in US Top Rock and Metal Albums. In Flames is a band that fans around the world can rely on, inspiring their fans, the Jesterheads, to live by the phrase ”In Flames We Trust.”
