    Anders guest vocal appearance on Norweigan black metal band Grievance which rocks. Jesper also did alot of guitarwork on this album. Album is from 1999. IMO it's nice even though i dont listen to Black Metal, but it's not the best production.

    bullshit it's from 1999 not 2001, which is why it sounds like his Colony vocals, which is great because that's his finest hour.

    Not sure if it's 1999, Some sites states 1999, some other says 2001. Wikipedia states 2001.. But yeah it's probably 1999 Since of the vocal style. Either way it's nice

    lol of course it's not the best production, it's black metal! and Anders needs to go back to these vocals. I don't get this new emo, whiny style of singing he's been latching on to. oh wait, maybe cuz it sells more and everyone else is doing it?

    haha sorry guys, I don't mean to come in here and hate on them so much. but I just miss the old In Flames so much. songs like Moonshield were a masterpiece in my eyes. anyways, it's all just opinion.

    I think he's trying to be less forced on his vocals and has taken a more natural route with his voice.

    It's basically like this. This is from mr anders himself so it's no bullshit i came up with.

    5. I actually quiet like the "new style" In Flames, but I'm curious, what has motivated you to change your vocal style and the way you write lyrics? In the "old times" the themes were more fantasy/astrological/etc. but still carried a strong reference to the present world, and were delivered by way of a really impressive death growl.

    What has pushed you to exchange the low growls with screams, and writing lyrics more openly hitting the issues of society, without the fantasy overlay?

    "I don’t really buy into this old vs. new. We are now on our 9th studio album and we have been going since the first album came out in 1994.

    To me it is just a natural development. There is no immediate change. You all have to realize we as a band live with this music 24-7. What you hear as the audience, you hear our statement every second or third year when we release an album. So the change would be greater for you, than it is for us when you hear the finished album.

    I can hear that my vocals have a different tone when I did the Jester Race in comparison to ASOP. But it all has to do with the years I got to know my voice, and learned how to express my instrument in different ways.

    In the beginning, I just went in there and screamed with no technique whatsoever. Now, even if the vocal is aggressive I want people to understand and feel what I am singing about.

    When it comes to the lyrics, I don’t think many people understand what Jester Race and Whoracle are really about. And yes, those albums have a very strong lyrical theme and I am very proud of those albums. But that has been done, and I don’t want to do it again and again.

    Now I want to communicate with the listener, and I want to create something that you can also relate to."

    I think this is where I differ. I could give 2 shits about the lyrics. What effects me is the music and the melodic lines, and not to mention the texture of the instruments I'm listening to. So when I hear his voice now, the texture of it, the tonal quality, etc. is so different from before. I really can't stand the way Anders uses his voice now. Same reason I can't listen to slipknot or bullet for my valentine, all those bands. it's the singing quality I cannot stand. and this is just MY preference. so don't get all worked up about it. But I should I also mention that I much prefer Mikael Stanne's vocals. and that's part of the reason I like earlier In flames rather than the new.

    Well, I personally think that lyrics are extremely important and relevant, although that is just my preference, of course; I think Anders' lyrical development goes hand-in-hand with his vocal development and, as he had mentioned himself, his earlier vocal style wasn't refined as it is now (and I don't mean this in an insulting way, I absolutely love the old In Flames as well as the new).

    As for the lyrical development, I've always appreciated In Flames' fairly abstract themes and although, indeed, the older lyrics had more of a fantastical approach, I think the essence of how the lyrics are written and put together is still very much intact.

    Colony - Reroute had pretty good lyrics, with a more personal lyrical theme.

    Colony and Clayman were the lyrical peak of In Flames. R2R had some nice stuff, but it wasn't on the same level. Most of what they've released after R2R has been lyrically empty, and the stuff before was a mish-mash of words that occasionally came up with some awesome sentences but more often than not either did not fit the music or simply looked like Anders/Niklas had gotten out a dictionary and strewn together words that sounded cool.

    Yeah that's true..I'm not english native speaker but i do understand english very well, And i don't know what half of the words mean in TJR and Whoracle..I think Clayman had unique lyrics since it was Anders first album he wrote the lyrics 100% on his own. Also STYE has a bit different lyrical theme IMO aswell.
