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

once awesome melodic death metal band that slowly regressed to some noise with nu-metal elements.
"Reroute to Remain sounds like Korn attempting death metal."

One of the biggest sellout bands of all time, only challenged by Metallica and Sepultura. One of the best melodic death metal bands in the old days, but now just another nu metal trend.
Considering how close Sweden is to Denmark, you can't help but to wonder if anyone in In Flames is related to Lars Ulrich.

a kick ass band from Sweden who along with Dark Tranquillity and At The Gates help create the genre known as melodic death metal, they have released a total of ten studio albums, starting with the album reroute to remain they took on a lighter sound because they started having a tough time playing their songs live so they wanted to focus on making songs that would sound better live while still maintaining a unique sounds (at least until a bunch of people copied them)

great old songs:
episode 666
the hive
as the future repeats today
lord hypnos
only for the weak

great new songs:
cloud connected
take this life
the quiet place
my sweet shadow
crawl through knives
where the dead ships dwell
sounds of a playground fading
person with good taste in music: IN FLAMES RULES AND ARE LIVING GODS!!!!!!

Definately a good band but nowhere near the BEST band.

reroute to remains is total crap...

early In Flames is good but they are starting to become on par with the likes of linkin park and korn.
in flames are not the best band

In Flames are a Death turned Nu metal band that once was the (or one of the) greatest metal bands around. But after the release of Clayman the band went down hill making albums like Reroute To Remain
In Flames are touring with Killswitch Engage, are you gonna go?
Fuck yeah!

Semi-Decent Melodic Death Metal band. Their first few CDs were good, but they started selling out... Reroute to Remain sucks.
And godammit they aren't the best metal band! Obviously all you fucktard haven't heard heard of Opeth.
Opeth kicks In Flames little pansy ass out of sweden.
