In Flames

Used And Abused … In Live We Trust

Veröffentlicht am: 25.07.2005

If progress in the sound of Melodic Death Metal had a name, it would certainly be called IN FLAMES. During the last ten years the five-piece from Sweden has become the most innovative band in melodic death metal. Their trademark sound has been copied by many, but surpassed by none. Striving to make music he loved, Jesper Strömblad formed IN FLAMES with Johan Larsson and Glenn Ljungström in 1990. After recording a demo, the trio got their first record deal and started to work on their debut album "Lunar Strain", which became a classic in the fast growing Scandinavian Death Metal scene. Highlighting the melodic side in their song-writing proved to be an important ingredient to a highly successful release. A license deal with Nuclear Blast was bargained soon afterwards and IN FLAMES started recording the follow up long-player "The Jester Race", this time with a line up consisting of Jesper, Johan and Glenn and two new additions: Anders Friden on vocals and Björn Gelotte on drums. "The Jester Race" turned out to be another big hit and brought the band to prominence in both Europe and Japan. Several gigs and a festival tour with SAMAEL, KREATOR and GRIP INC. followed. After the recording of "Whoracle" in 1997 Johan and Glenn decided to leave IN FLAMES, while Peter Iwers (on bass) and Niklas Engelin (guitar) filled in the gaps. With that fresh line up the band geared up for a short tour with DIMMU BORGIR and, in the following months, a very successful headlining European tour. Once back home in Sweden Niklas quit IN FLAMES due to his wish to put more energy in his other project GARDENIAN. In this period IN FLAMES radically restructured their line-up: Björn switched to guitar and Daniel Svensson (from SACRILIGE) was hired as drummer. With this new, improved line-up IN FLAMES released "Colony" in 1999. Excellent reactions all over the world and full concert venues in Europe, USA and Japan made IN FLAMES one of the most popular Melodic Death Metal acts worldwide. "Clayman" in 2000 even topped its predecessor and won many acclaims and awards. The first IN FLAMES live album, "The Tokyo Showdown", released one year later, gave a detailed insight into the band's live proficiency. More modern sounding and mature, "Reroute To Remain" (2002) again confirmed the high status of IN FLAMES and marked another milestone in their career. Two years later and it is was time to take In FLAMES to the next level. "Soundtrack To Your Escape" did just that! Thrilling metal in the right balance between the band’s classic death-metal origins and modernity. The logical continuation after "Reroute To Remain". "Used And Abused… In Live We Trust!", the first DVD for IN FLAMES, perfectly captures the power of the band and the enthusiasm of the audience. You can almost feel just like you would in the venue and see the sweat running down the faces of fans and band members alike. But there‘s more to it!. An extra 2 CDs and, for all the real fans, a limited digi-pack edition in a slipcase with the 2DVD, the 2CD and a 48 page booklet! The track-list is incredible – tons of classics and the whole "Soundtrack To Your Escape" Album in stunning live versions. This much is clear: This the ultimate package for every IN FLAMES-Fan!
