    I'm not saying that it fits into any album.in particular. But, if you mix the guitar work with clean vocals, there you have something very similar to what in flames would (probably) sound if jesper was still in the band.

    I dunno, Jesper was in the band for ASOP too. I think the creative differences between him and Anders would never have allowed an album with songs like Karma across the board. At best we'd get some weird mix of Resistance, Cyhra and SC/Battles era in flames, which wouldn't be so great.

    Amazing dude, you just bring your hatred of Anders to another level. Bravo indeed. If Karma had Anders's screams (not cleans only scream) that would improve the song A LOT, actually that would make it a song from Clayman's itself. Music wise song has a lot of similaritys to Clayman/Colony, intro sounds like Swim, verses sounds like Embody the invisible. Actually verses not sounds like Embody, its the same verses. Add Through My Eyes verse screams to that song and boom you got a Clayman/Colony song. And that wouldnt improve the song? Are you going to start hating Clayman too just because you dont like Anders?

    I get if you dont like Anders for driving IF sound to more modern way (or popish way as you say it) but saying that it wouldnt improve at all its just ridiculous.

    Well, 20+ spins later, I must say I'm OK with songs like Karma. This is what IF should sound like today (if they wanted to "evolve" and leave all death metal behind). But no, we've got Save Me instead.

    Vocals are a bit loud compared to background riffs, and electronics don't really add anything, but the song is well done, vocalist is good at what he does and that guitar lead... Now, that I hate. Jesper seems able to write that stuff whenever he likes (moments in Resistance, guest stuff for other bands, Karma...), and he really has unique style nobody knows how to copy no matter how melodic or harmonic other band are, but he chooses not to for decade and half. It's like Maiden saying: "Fuck it, we're done with leads and solos" or Dream Theater ditching long progy songs from their repertoire.

    Am I the only one who finds it funny that there's a song called "here to save you"?

    What if I actually think good singing sounds better than screaming? I appreciate that might be difficult to get your head around, but there are some people with that opinion.

    Hopefully the mixing will sound a little better on the album. Agreed on the electronics, I guess they're fine but the song could easily just start with that awesome riff.

    It makes me sad that we've had to wait this long for Jesper to create good new music. At least we're getting a full album, if it's similar to Karma across the album I can't wait. Song titles are a bit Anders but as long as the music is good I don't care.

    But I thought that it was about the lyrics, not a real passion :p

    I only like unisonic.

    Sure you can have your opinions, you can prefer good singing and thats your choice I get that. What I'm saying is if you add Anders's screams to that song you basicly have a Clayman/Colony song. We all can see it, that kinda song would fit to those eras. But saying that it wouldnt improve it, is kinda weird cause you claimed with tons of posts that you liked old IF and Karma with Anders's scream vocals on top is a old IF song. You see the contradiction here right?

    I don't really agree with that to begin with. Some of the riffs on Karma sound like old school IF, sure, but not the whole song. What about the quiet parts of the verses, for example? Does Anders scream through that too?

    Chorus would sound OK screamed, yeah, but I don't think it improves the song. It'd sound fine to me either way.

    Well, PM isn't for everyone. You should check out Iron Savior or Mercenary though, that's some good stuff and vocals aren't mega gay.

    Rage are pretty good too, although I dunno if they count as power metal.

    From this perspective it looks kind of silly
    I'm sorry but Peavy Wagner does not sound like a girl. :p

    Neither does Ralf Scheepers:



    Edit: I mean, you're free to dislike these singers but I just fail to see why anyone would say their vocals are gay, powerless or whatever.

    I have to agree. Most PM vocalists sing way too high. Angry girls.
