    I like how that one guy suggested DragonForce. Lol. I'm just messing around, DE, obviously there are some similarities. I don't hear too many, but there are some. And I like the Swedish Passenger album, a lot more than SC and Battles.

    Nah, I mean there's a British band/artist actually called Passenger:



    Imagine expecting to get an album made by this guy, and instead getting Anders :D no wonder all of those Amazon reviews are like WTF.

    Passenger is better than SC or Battles for me too, but you can definitely hear the Anders/Engelin core dynamic at work in all three albums.

    You're not being fair. IF has a number of songs with competent singers. Whoracle, Dead End, WTWE...

    Not bad. Guitar stuff is IF (tm). Solo is a bit meh. Vocals good. Song catchy.

    Nothing wrong with it, nothing special about it either.

    Well, I like the solo..it enters smoothly, fits with the smooth, and I can totally can see a work behind it.

    I'm not very fan of vocals like this and I'm tired of the use of synths in modern metal.

    Basically, to me, modern IF jesper's version.

    Vocals are OK, but they just don't do anything for me. Generic modern metal stuff. Synths are quite annoying.

    This song = Amaranthe driven by classic IF melodic riffs (while I was hoping for Clayman/CC IF with better clean vocals). It is good, but it's just a short single. I hope the rest of the album will be better.

    It's exactly how I thought it was going to be. This will make a lot of people disappointed.

    Well, if they were hoping for TJR, yes. But it's still good music. We'll see.

    And yes, this is a single, short, direct, catchy, but they are doing the same thing new IF does. Reducing musical content just to get that classic pop song structure and get to the first chorus as soon as possible. 15 sec of synth, 15 sec of catchy riff (without taking another 20-30 seconds to develop that theme), verse, bridge, chorus, verse, bridge, chorus, short solo, chorus, repeat intro to end the song.

    I like the song actually, its better than what I expected. I can hear Clayman guitars in the song which is totally awesome. I'm happy that Jesper still got it. As soon as I heard Jake will be doing the vocals I knew that it wont be scream vocals or something so that wasnt a disappointment but I would preffer scream vocals. This vocals isnt bad actually but I would like to hear some scream on that awesome guitars. Like you guys said synths are on every modern melodeath songs so its boring.

    It's amazing how actually people is surprised that there are no screams. It's not as if nobody knows shit about Jake's style.

    I think the main riff from Karma sounds like Swim from Clayman. What do you guys think?

    Better than anything off IF's last two albums, slap some Whoracle growls in there and it's a pretty acceptable In Flames tune. Jesper's still got it.

    "Formed in 2016 by longtime friends Jake E and Strömblad, CYHRA is about to light a fire under the contemporary metal scene that promises to blaze for decades to come."

    :tickled::tickled::tickled:

    Récord labels are really amazing.
