    I know this isn't relevant to the topic but I just had to ask. Do In Flames see this forum? (I know it's not official but do they?)

    Got Tokyo Showdown in 02/03, can't remember why.

    I listened to The Quiet Place after that, loved it, then listened to a few more R2R/STYE tracks, hated them, went out and bought The Jester Race.

    I first heard em with Take This Life and didnt really like IF at first. A mate lent me a copied version of Come Clarity and again I didnt really like it except the title track. Eventually I got really into it and now I love it. Then bought Jester Race and went from there.

    My first was The Jester Race/Black Ash Inheritance. I saw the Trigger video on TV & loved it, so I looked them up on teh internets & then went out looking for Reroute To Remain in the shops. I couldn't find it so I bought The Jester Race instead, since I knew it's their most popular album.

    About 4-5 years ago. I don't remember exactly how i found in flames. Maybe some random downloading, dunno. The first song I ever heard was off the reroute to remain album. This was around the time I was doing my transition from mainstream rock to mainstream metal....then later on off into the metal "world"

    Anyways, after a while of getting into the newer in flames I searched for some more online. I found a few songs off of "Whoracle" and "The Jester Race", At first I didn't like the style of metal they played. It was too raw for my newb metal skillz. It took some time, but after listen after listen I slowly but surely got use to it. Then it went from that to enjoy it, then to love it! Before I knew it I was headbanging 200% of the time to older in flames rather than the new. Later on I actually got up from the computer and bought the masterpiece "The jester race" from the local music store. Then "Whoracle" shortly after. The rest is...how you say....History.

    Lol from an Unreal Tournament frag video. The video had Man Made God, Dialogue with the Stars and I was like :| this is some of the best instramentals i've ever heard. Got ahold of Colony and Clayman then the rest is history.

    My friend was obsessed with them so I thought, why not? Episode 666 was the first song that came up on Limewire. I was blown away, and subsequently got all their albums, including In Live We Trust on mp3

    i bought the Jester Race on a total whim...absolutely random, actually. It looked fucking badass, so I bought it for like $4.50 without have heard a single note of IF, ever.
