In Flames - Sounds Of A Playground Fading Cover

A band in their prime as they approach their second decade, In Flames are still worth a listen...

Despite founding member Jesper Strömblad leaving the Swedish metallers since 08s ‘A Sense Of Purpose’, In Flames’ tenth studio album sees the band remain a solid unit, churning out what may well be their most commercial record yet as they’ve dropped the deathly growls for a more sorrowful approach. Although at times, like ‘Deliver Us’, they become Avenged Sevenfold, the band are never ones to remain settled, and soon switch between vocal ranges, speed playing, and good old aggression. Sounding like a band in their prime rather than one approaching its second decade, In Flames still have a voice worth listening to.
