    Relatively little is known about this fellow.

    All i know is that :
    -In the promo pictures for Lunar Strain, he looks like a fish out of water.
    -Played guitar for In Flames in 1993 / 1994.
    -Hasn't been in a band since.

    I don't know if he was a session member or was actually in the band. Does anybody know what parts of Lunar Strain he recorded or if he even recorded on the 1993 promo? I assume his input was extremely little was Glenn and Jesper were the main guitarists during the time this duo existed.

    From this perspective it looks kind of silly
    I don't know. But perhaps the upcoming mystery release of IF is going to be about him. "Whatever became of Carl Näslund?"

    Seriously though, he was probably just some young bloke who didn't want to become a professional musician after all.

    Maybe this guy is the Alf Svensson (ATG) of In Flames.

    Maybe Jesper didn’t even invent this shit. It was Carl. From the shadows and into the shadows. Like a dark wizard. Literally inventing a new genre just like that.

    The funny thing is that nobody in the current IF line up has any overlap with this guy.

    But guess who could tell us Carl’s role? Mikael Stanne. Somebody ask Mikael at the next DT gig!

    The true In Flames died upon Carl's departure. Jesper and Glenn started writing more mainstream music. And Henke ffs, what was with those red wine drinking vampire love lyrics?

    I have a theory.

    You know that kickass bluesy solo at the end of Everlost Pt. II?

    What if that's Carl, and it's the only thing he did for the album.

    HMMMMMM.
