    I definitely remember Anders getting shit online for his dreads back when he first got them. At the time a lot of people were labelling them sellouts and the Jonathan Davis-esque dreadlocks only added to that shitstorm. Personally I thought the dreads suited Anders.

    As far as the band's dress sense during that time goes, it was often stupid but I always figured it was being done somewhat ironically. Especially the [Link]In Flames t-shirts and the shirts & ties. Anders did have some really weird clothing choices around the Come Clarity touring period though :guh: and obviously the hipster hamster look is lame AF.

    That doesn't make him a good frontman.

    I really like this song. Just saying. I only noticed today how every chorus is slightly different, Anders doesn't sing it the same at any point which is a really cool little detail.

    02:54 - 03:15 - how did we go from this to the drudgery that was Siren Charms and Battles? I don't get it.

    Relistening to this recently it's interesting how Anders' vocals actually aren't that dissimilar to ASOP, with that same half-scream half-yell thing going on, but because the overall production is wider and more powerful it helps support the vocals rather than making them a bad focal point.

    I love this song, Intro is great, the verses are interesting and flow different to most modern IF, the chorus is strong, and it's one of Bjorn's best solos. There is a definite technique change in Anders' harsh vocals after this album.

    Then I'm a good frontman. I cannot sing. And have zero vocal skills. But I can make people have a great time.

    You're aware you don't have to be vocalist to be frontman, right?

    I already mentioned willingness. And nope, stealing and killing is illegal. Sex is not.

    What? Anyone in the band can be the frontman? Then the music industry has been deceiving us for decades?

    He came back talking about some live shows. I always liked him, so the hatred was never mutual. He just got a short-fuse.
    Lmao why are you telling ME this? I'm not the only participant. I'm merely replying.

    Yeah I can remember him posting full psychological thesis' on why Slave was a narcissist and all around terrible human being :D then Slave changed the text under his avatar to 'Narcissist' just to make sure the trigger was fully pulled. Some cold Hungarian trolling for sure.

    If they ask money for the digital EP as well, that's a fucking rip-off.

    Not really. There's no obligation to get both that and the full 20th edition album.

    It's just the same as individual digital singles ahead of an album like how they did with The End/The Truth, I Am Above and House.

    I wonder if it's a newly recorded instrumental or something from the Clayman sessions?

    Or an instrumental of Howard Benson's greatest hits.

    So no guitars? Just bass guitar and programmed drums?

    Also the inside of the booklet or whatever it's called looks pretty cool.

    Also found some more info about the instrumental thing, which to me is good news, it said:
    - New instrumental track titled “Themes And Variations In D-Minor” composed by Johannes Bergion, guitars by Bjorn Gelotte. Recorded & mixed by Roberto Laghi.

    Johannes Bergion is the same guy who wrote the violin etc parts for A New Dawn. So it might have a classical feel or influence to it maybe?

    Well it does say guitars by Björn Gelotte. It definitely doesn't sound like it's going to be something like Dialogue with the Stars, more like something with acoustic guitars and whatever Johannes has come up with. I'm not gonna say I'm hyped as fuck but I'm definitely interested, I don't feel like IF has disappointed much with instrumentals
