“If you like In Flames this upcoming album is going to be 100% for you”: Interview with Anders Friden

Author Arto Mäenpää - 14.7.2022

Swedish metal giants In Flames used the corona downtime like most of bands by making a brand new album. The first single from the yet untitled new album “State of Slow Decay” was really well received among fans and vocalist Anders Friden had the following to say about the track stating the song to be a statement:

“We have always done our own thing without any pressure from the outside world. But being back with Nuclear Blast worldwide has for sure inspired us to write a host of new material that includes the past, the present and the future. ‘State Of Slow Decay’ includes everything that IN FLAMES are known for, but it’s more than just a song, it’s a fucking statement. I couldn’t be happier to release this as a taste of what’s to come.”

Before heading to US to play a big tour the band has been playing few selected European festival appearances and last weekend the band played shows at Sauna Open Air in Tampere, Finland as well as in Rock In The City in Oulu, Finland.
