  • We all know In Flames and that is one of the most important swedish bands nowadays. There are lots of LIVE albums coming out and I sincerely expected something special for this album or some extra stuff. But none of this happended. In Flames show they are killer on stage and that they can do perfectly on stage what they did on the studio. This album has too many songs from their last three albums (“Clayman”, “Colony”, “Whoracle”) and only two from their first two efforts “Behind space” (also in “Colony”) and “Moonshield”. Some cool songs were left out, like “Clad in shadows”, “Artifacts of the black rain”, “Goliaths disarm their Davids”, “The Jester Race”, “The Inborn Lifeless”. Of course, their last three albums are the ones that put In Flames on top of the world…But the songs show no surprises (I mean, like in “Scorn” they play Slayer’s “Raining blood”’s riff)…You can listen to the audience at the beginning and at the end of each song, but that’s it…Anders Friden is colder than ice to present the songs…The album starts with “Bullet ride”. It has a killer beginning but the drums’ sound didn’t help. It is one of the weakest points in the album..The guitar are in the front, and sometimes you can’t hear the vocals…Some versions sound more violent than the studio ones (“Episode666″)…In Flames is one of my favorite bands and in this case, I have to say that this is another live album from another great band.
