IN FLAMES - sign to Nuclear Blast! - 2016-06-16

2016-06-16 - Nuclear Blast proudly announce the signing of Swedish metal icons, IN FLAMES for the world ex-North America and Scandinavia. Formed in 1990, the band are considered one of the forefathers of melodic death metal and the purveyors of the "Gothenburg sound". With eleven studio albums released, countless successful tours around the globe, millions of records sold and a massive fanbase worldwide, IN FLAMES have proven to be an unstoppable force in heavy music. From their 1994 debut »Lunar Strain« to the most recent »Siren Charms« (2014), the band's intricate twin guitar attack, melodic vocals and superb arrangements have given them a signature sound that has evolved throughout the years.

"In a way, IN FLAMES and Nuclear Blast share a similar story," said IN FLAMES vocalist Anders Fridén. "Both started in a garage in Europe, both love metal and both have grown a lot bigger over the years. For these reasons, it seemed a natural fit to come back to the place it all started."

"We're enormously happy that IN FLAMES decided to return and trust in us for the second time - Nuclear Blast is their home again from now on. I remember well how their debut album, »Lunar Strain«, inspired me back in the days. I was totally fascinated by their great and absolutely unique blend of death metal with delicate melodies," commented Nuclear Blast CEO Markus Staiger. "One year later, IN FLAMES signed with us and released eight splendid records over the years, including groundbreaking classics such as »Whoracle«, »Clayman«, and »Reroute To Remain«. IN FLAMES developed all the time, reinvented themselves again and again and enthused fans of various genres with their always innovative sound. We're looking forward to the common future with Anders, Björn, Peter, and Niclas."

Currently, the band are working on the release of a new live DVD. Stay tuned for more details!
