Formed in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1990, In Flames is world-renown as one of the forefathers of Melodic Death Metal.
With 12 studio albums released, countless successful tours around the globe, the creation of their own annual festival, millions of records sold and a massive fanbase worldwide, In Flames has proven to be an unstoppable force in heavy music.
This concert started with “My Sweet Shadow”. The audience, who had already experienced many a great metal show at this edition of Pol’and’Rock—and many of whom were Jesterheads, which is what In Flames fans call themselves—was ready to immediately spring into action.
The band’s frontman, Anders Fridén, did not have to encourage the crowd twice for a huge group to jump right into mad pogo.
The band mixed their old death metal hits with newer, calmer albums. We heard „Pinball Ball”, „Take This Life”, „Cloud Connected”, and of course „Only for the Weak”. Their reputation of being a band that fans around the world can rely on was surely upheld!
The band’s music style is built on a strong base of melodic guitars and aggressive riffs and Anders Fridén seems to effortlessly move from a deep growl to melodic song.
It was obvious that the band knew what they were doing—they were playing around with their own music and style, as if looking for a fresh twist to put on it. The audience jumped like mad from start to the very end!
With three leaders of each category qualified to take part in the final round the competition is speeding up. Winners will be announced during Emerging Bands Competition final in Warsaw.
Anja Rubik will be one of the speakers at AFA this year. She is a model, editor and social activist. Rubik's campaign about sex education, which became viral this year, will also be presented at the workshop zone of the festival.
