Author Arto Mäenpää - 25.1.2023

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 thirteen studio albums under their belt, countless successful tours around the globe playing with the likes of Black SabbathMetallica, 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.

On February 10th, Swedish modern metal visionaries release their fourteenth studio album “Foregone” – the new masterpiece from a band whose artistry and influence on modern metal is undeniable.

Chaoszine sat down with the band’s iconic frontman Anders Fridén via Zoom in the beginning of January to discuss about his journey as a metal vocalist from the very early days to present and talked how Fridén has created one of the most recognizable voices in metal music.
