Ok I am a true In Flames not these posers who listen to STYE and RtR and Come Clarity, which are utter crap compared to before.

In Flames are one of the pioneers of the "melodic death-metal" genre along with Soilwork and At the Gates. This is true death melody with a lot of groove and thrash elements mixed together with superb musicianship. Whoracle and Colony are their best albums in my opinion because they sound so uniquely different while kicking major ass at the same time. With their beautiful acoustics mixed with badass keyboards this band truely stood out and kicked ass at the same time. A lot of shitty bands try to copy them with their sounds and fail miserably. Listen to everything up until RtR, and you can see why they are famous. Episode 666 is thier best song but every single song kicks ass even on Clayman which sounds radically different(a lot of more thrash elements) from Whoracle but stands out from most bands out there.

Releasing Reroute to Remain, they basically took a shit on everything they stand for. It's basically just really low tuned guitars with one note chords over and over with a semi-decent chorus. And his voice is trying to be clean but it's ear piercingly painful to not listen to him growl. I have no idea why they did it is such a shame because this band was once a god of metal. It's so sad to see this band sink to this level because if you can listen to Reroute to Remain and then pop in Jester Race or Lunar Strain you would be pissed off too. So sad to see such a badass band go to waste.

In Flames: Once the god of death melody, now just another sheep in the flock.

Best albums=
Lunar Strain and Subterrenean
Jester Race/Black Ash Inheritance

Gods of metal. They own faggy pop-metal bands like Slipknot and Linkin Park. Their best songs are Episode 666, Jotun, Embody the Invisible, and Cloud Connected, and I have yet to hear a CD of theirs that is anything but excelence, even Reroute to Remain.
In Flames are fucking Gods of music, and wipe their asses with crap like Slipknot.

This is Episode 666.... Destination: Chaos!

Best metal band ever. Period. Beware the false definitions that elude to them being something lesser.
In Flames are the current Gods of metal.

The best melodical death metal band in Scandinavia, or perhaps even the world. Has produced masterpieces such as "The Jester Race", "Whoracle", and "Clayman".
Those Linkin Park fags ain't heard nothing yet.

An awesome band from Sweden founded in the early 90's. They are famous for their legendary riffs and songs so catchy it is not tiring to listen to after a couple of re-runs.

However at the dawn of Reroute to Remain, they started sounding mainstream. I don't know why they'd done it (probably to attract a larger crowd aside from their current fanbase), but they still got their own harmonious riffs, just not as good from way back.
Some of their finest songs:

- Stand Ablaze
- Ever Dying
- Moonshield
- Jotun
- The Hive
- Food for the Gods
- Dialogue with the Stars
- Embody the Invisible
- Morphing into Primal

(Some of their best albums are Whoracle, Jester Race Black Ash Inheritance and Lunar Strain)

A great metal band that has slowly gotten more of a "mainstream" especially in their new cd soundtrack to your escape. Still one of the greatest "metal" bands ever.

ok
In flames is a very good metal band that has a good unique sound, especially in their older CD's.
