In Flames: A Jesterhead Firestorm!

2018-08-05 05:22:12

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!
