They should change name to "In Fridén" and let the original band name rest once and for all. None of them are original members and the "music" they create nowadays has zero to do with the original band and the visions once put forth by its creator.
I don't think one can say that; I mean, sure they're not the very first members, but if I'm not mistaken, at least three of them have been in In Flames since the melodeath era and second/third album. They're not the founders of the band but they're its "creators" just as well; they've made IF what it is (was). But I agree it would truly be a relief if they started a new band instead of torturing old fans with their generic tunes over and over.
Limp Bizkit - The Truth >>>>> In Flames - The Truth. Like by far. One is heavy. One is cheesy as fuck. It's not the way around that you would have expected in the year 2000.
"We are, we are..."... reminds me of Youth of the Nation by POD. Which is yet another far superior song.
In fact, my own avatar just brought a valid point to mind. The latest Dark Tranquillity album is a great example of how to do something different but still awesome. Not In Flames' lame emo and pop influenced crap.
"There's no In Flames on skalberg's profile btw". No, I rarely listen to them nowadays, and when I do it's usually on vinyl or on youtube since I don't own any CD's with them. Everything I listen to isn't scrobbled. Anyway, you missed the point I think, but to each their own.
v Lunar Strain is not high on your list, you know. Anders contributed vocals and lyrics while Björn played drums and guitar and wrote parts on the album you listened to the most. There's no In Flames on skalberg's profile btw.
I'm a big fan of IF and they can do no wrong! I've been a fan since the beginning and really like everything they've put out! I do understand their is fans that don't like change, however for a band to put out the same album after album is defeating the purpose of being creative! IMO!
