Time stood still tonight when the calendar shifted into a new day: February 10 marks the beginning of a new era not only for Swedish modern metal visionaries IN FLAMES but for the metal community. Today marks the release of the band’s 14th studio album Foregone — a masterpiece from a band whose artistry and influence on modern metal is undeniable.
To celebrate the release, IN FLAMES have shared the lyric video for “End The Transmission.”
Foregone, the furious new studio album, combines the greatest aggressive, metallic, and melodic strengths of their landmark records with the seasoned song writing of their contemporary era.
A sense of pride, accomplishment, and continued vitality are evident every time the band takes the stage, and all over Foregone. The album itself represents IN FLAMES past, present, and future.
“We are very proud to finally share this album with you,” the band says. “Everything from our past, present, and a brief glimpse into the future is laid out in these songs. Can’t wait to bring these songs to life on the road and play them for everyone. See you all very soon!”
IN FLAMES are one of the biggest metal bands in the world — never shying away from pushing their artistic boundaries, crafting music that’s as catchy as it is crushing. Formed in 1990, the band is considered one of the forefathers of melodic death metal and the purveyors of the “Gothenburg sound.”
With 13 studio albums under their belt, countless successful tours around the globe playing with the likes of Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Judas Priest and Slayer — with millions of records sold and a massive fanbase worldwide — IN FLAMES have proven to be an unstoppable force.
From their 1994 debut Lunar Strain onwards, 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 FLAMES are: Anders Fridén | Vocals, Björn Gelotte | Guitar/Vocals, Chris Broderick | Guitar, Tanner Wayne | Drums, Bryce Paul | Bass
