In Flames

Saturday 2 May 2020

Sweden’s leading metal band has never stopped moving forward during the more than 20 years they’ve been performing. The melodic death metal of the band’s early days has since evolved into a unique expression, manifested in 13 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. The globally-demanded act have toured worldwide with acts such as Judas Priest, Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed while inspiring many of our favourite rock and metal artists today. 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”.
