    Well I am not a huge fan of either, but I would much rather listen to DT.

    This was a hard one.
    I went with IF 'cause I listened to them ALOT around the whoracle/colony/clayman years, and because im on their DVD "Used and abused... In live we trust". :p

    Nowdays I preffer DT though.

    Haha it's really head to head right now, real fun!! :) Come on people IF have The Jester Race, Whoracle, Colony and Clayman. DT is nowhere near these albums...

    I can give two shits about either of them nowadays, but I'll go with In Flames for the fact that Henke Forss sang on Subterranean, which to me now, is the only redeeming quality of the album. DT...pretty boring live band, I'll agree with that, Projector was the last thing I ever cared for by them because I think Mikael has a great clean voice, but I don't care these days since there is way better metal out there, this stuff just bores the shit out of me.

    In Flames Lunar-Clayman were my favorite band but now they just suck. I think DT is more consistent but overall In Flames made a bigger impact on me. I voted for In Flames but if I were given free tickets to IF and DT on the same night I'd choose DT because I like their latest material much more.

    ^ Minus Colony and Clayman that is... Fridén started moaning and squealing instead of singing there... Weak albums both of them.

    Dark Tranquillity. Even though In Flames have good early albums, the latest albums are a joke.

    This is really hard for me. I think 'Jester' and 'Whoracle' are better than anything DT have done, but apart from that I'm not sure. I thought 'Fiction' was a great album, and they do have some very good moments. I feel weird voting for a band based on their 1995-1997 era, but I think that's what I'll have to do. So I vote for In Flames, but curse them for what they've done.

    Just played the start of 'Clayman' and had to turn it off... then put in 'Whoracle' and rocked out. The difference is UNBELIEVABLE. Old IF stands as one of metal's all time joys.

    I have to vote In Flames on this one. Mainly because of this song:



    I used to love In Flames like five years ago and still enjoy some of their old records but Dark Tranquillity never "did" anything for me, to bland. And Anders Fridén fucking owned back then.

    Both bands are far from being in my top 20 bands, but I've seen DT live and they are so awesome live imo ! I didn't like IF music neither in the past nor now.
