To be completely honest, no. I mean, In Flames is great, no doubt about that, but DT > just about everything.

I do like すし (sushi) but it's become way too popular.

How can food become too popular? The more popular it is, the more there is for me to eat.

Maybe 5 years ago, but with the recent change in style on both sides, I'm going with DT > In Flames.

5 years ago would have been Fiction vs Come Clarity, which does in no way in any possible universe mean In Flames > DT.

Well everyone goes to those damn sushi bars but don't know anything about Japanese culture; plus (insert Redneck accent) 'those damn Japs keep killing them whales!'

Even if IF is, overall, a pretty good band, DT keeps (re)inventing (the)genre, which IF hasn't really done.

I think Niklas is a hipster. He is such a hipster, he is probably chewing on organic-milkfree-eggfree-glutenfree-chocolatefree-baconfree-caloriefree-raw brownies, sewing ostrich feathers into his hair, and whimsically taking iPhone photos of himself while listening to the Spice Girls at this very moment. ^_~

Plus, I heard he has a mac.

On a desert island and given the option of the entire catalogues of Dark Tranquillity or In Flames, I would choose In Flames. I love DT, but they don't have an album that hits me the way Whoracle and Colony do.

In Flames has three albums worth listening to: Jester Race, Whoracle and Colony. I like them very much, especially Whoracle.

But... you can argue DT's entire catalogue, except the mundane Character (sorry guys, I know a bunch of you disagree) and Projector, is pretty impressive.

In Flames is also a terrible live band.

But this is a question of production and their sound. Who composes better music? I don't really know. It's a straightforward fact that DT's music is more imaginative and complex in every aspect if you were to ask someone to read their music.

To each his own, though.

Not that I care about lyrics but In Flames' guys have some... err... issues with the English language ahehehe. Not the best lyrics in the world, AM I RIGHT!?

I've heard worse. Besides, part of the charm of their earlier albums are that they're not perfect.

I dig the earlier albums. And there's no "perfect" in music, so that's a non-issue to me. Their newer stuff has equally silly lyrics. That's not really something I take in consideration with a band, although it's nice when a band does have good / fun lyrics (I love Dan Swano's songs, for example, cheesy as they may be).

Metal is my favorite genre of music by far but as a whole scores an F+ in poetry, if you get my drift. IF METAL WERE A COLLEGE POETRY COURSE, IT WOULD BE THAT STRANGE CHUBBY GOTH GIRL WHO ALWAYS WRITES AWKWARD ANALOGIES ABOUT HER SEXUALITY INTO HER POEMS

THANKS ..



I do agree though the lyrics in metal music are often epic fail. The higher caliber writing is one of the main reasons I like DT and some of their songs. There are certain bands I listen to for general mood or to practice with but I really do wonder what they were thinking or if there is a light on upstairs sometimes :/

For example a new Epica song:

Storm the Sorrow (a really f'd up way of saying weather the storm)

Along the way I find myself
To be confined within me
My place where all the others mind to interfere

To press the meaning of it all
To overcome my limits
And dance away from any void and empty tasks

The storm is wild
The storm is high
I can’t survive the storm

Believe yourselves and look away
From all the thrive within you
Leave all your worries at the door
And drift away

I’ve tried to appear into the core
But could not storm the sorrow
My hollow heart has bled me dry, left me to stray

Another time
Without a chance
Condemned me wrong
Send me to heaven

Intertwine the lines
And swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we’re living
Dreamer as it need reweaving

In the memories of the deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another way of you led tears when someone had betrayed

No time to ever go to waste
It’s not that complicated
You’re free to live your life at ease
No more restrain

No heat for shadows on your way
That try to steal your laughter
Your lights will drive them all away
Be confident

Will i refrain
Can i repent
Will you be there
Your eyes have paced
Where i’m alone in ire <--obviously placed to rhyme and is nonsensical

Intertwine the lines
And swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we’re living
Dreamer as it need reweaving

In the memories of the deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another way of you led tears when someone had betrayed

WTF IS THIS?! It is a long string of misused cliches not even put together in a remotely intelligible way. Ugh..

Wow you fucked me up, girl. That's the most embarrassing thing I've read in a long time.

I keep trying to remember the made-up lyrics that the Tp_Opeth_Fan troll used to have as his sig that he once started as a thread on their forum. Something about dark chariots, this song made me think of it, except it was real.
