In Flames, and their influence

I have got to say that In Flames is just the coolest death metal band in the world. Their song compositions and guitar harmonies is just stunning. The only thing that I had a problem at first when I started listening to these guys was the singer. I wasn't used to the "choking on donkey [email protected]" vocals, but it grew on me very quickly. All of the albums that I have listened to are QUALITY, hands down. It's beautiful how the melodic guitar harmonies clash with the vocals. The overall energy of the band is just something that I havent seen in very many bands, in my point of view. The bassist in my was listening to them originally, and then the other guitarist, and then they both introduced the band to me. It was a little awkward at first (wasn't a big fan of the death metal scene at the time), but upon giving them a really good listen, WHOAH, these guys have something special. I mean these guys changed the way our band writes music when we want to write something heavy (and it's very convenient that there's another guitarist in my band to do harmonies with ). What does everybody here think of this Sweedish (hope I'm right) band?

You're right, they are Swedish. I haven't really listened to them that much yet, but what I have heard from them I really like.

I thought the melodic death thing was rather stagnant. When I think progressive, I think Ligeti or Pain of Salvation

I thought Subterranean, Jester Race and Whoracle were great but I don't care much for the albums after that.

Have you heard At the Gates or early Soilwork?

They're pretty cool. Is it the same drummer from ATG? He does that same eighth note against a triplet thing.

Im pretty burnt out on the whole Gothenburg, melodic death metal. It was cool at first, but then there where SO MANY copy bands it burnt out really quick. Although I did think In Flames was the coolest at one point.

coolest band to come out of Gothenburg is Evergrey though. Far better than the melodic death metal acts.

I don't think Evergrey is really a melodic death metal band, though. I've heard that they're more of a progressive metal band, kinda like Nevermore. I've also heard that they're a great band, so I'm gonna check them out .

All I really know about In Flames is that they do a very interesting cover of Genesis' "Land of Confusion".

I understand fully that evergrey is FAR from being melo death.

but they're from the same town as all the melo death bands do, and they managed not to be a copy cat band, and in fact be better than all the other bands from gothenburg.

Finally got around to listening to some In Flames (watching videos mostly actually) and I must say I'm a fan. Any idea what the guitarists and bassist are tuned to?

Their acoustic stuff is cool, too....Pallar Anders Visa, the song that Bam Margera included on CKY2K during the "bee wrangling" part, is really well-done...almost Spanish sounding...

I saw them live, they're pretty good at what they do but a kind of repetitive and not too death metal to me
