On February 10, Swedish modern metal visionaries IN FLAMES will release their 14th studio album Foregone — a new masterpiece from a band whose artistry and influence on modern metal is undeniable. Today, the band has shared the video for “Meet Your Maker.”
“Meet Your Maker” is a pulsating track with hypnotizing power and furious anger. Like a raw nerve exposed, the song speaks of the desperation and frustration brought on by the chaotic dystopia of post-pandemic society.
Frontman Anders Fridén states, “When we started to write for Foregone, ‘Meet Your Maker’ became the song that set the tone in terms of what we were aiming for sonically as well as thematically. You’ll see it’s everything you’ve come to expect from In Flames and some. Enjoy and see you on the road in 2023!”
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.
