    Miss them terribly. My friend and I decided to record an album inspired by the old gothenburg sound. Check it out and let me know what you guys think.

    Ignore De4life he's just trolling. I listened to it and I actually quite liked a bit of it. Some catchy riffs and melodies, especially the first track. By the way, where is the intro on Balance from? I really feel like I recognise it from somewhere, maybe a Dark Tranquillity intro or something?

    Hey Krofius, glad to hear you liked some of the stuff. Not sure about the Balance intro, my friend who mixed the songs was the one who found the fx.

    @21-only-son

    Nice stuff man. As Krofius said, some catchy riffs and melodies, some cool thrashy parts.

    ASOP is their weakest album easily. I love me some new In Flames, but when I do listen to In Flames I generally am grabbing at The Jester Race.

    wtf. STYE and ASOP are two of the best albums in history. Not a single flaw on either of them (Bottled aside). I LIKE YOU BETTER DEAD :headbang: I FEEL LIKE SHIIIIT, BUT AT LEAST I FEEL SOME ... THING :headbang:

    SOAPF is by far the best of new In Flames. The songs have much more emotion and better composition than anything made after Clayman. I like STYE. Great album really, although quite a bit different from the rest of their discography.

    I still stand by my claim that ASOP is their weakest album. Because it is. Hands down. It doesn't have the energy of STYE, the intensity of RTR, the melody and consistency of CC, and it doesn't have the emotion and flawless song writing that is SOAPF. Yeah, it's got some great songs, but for the most part the album sounds like the released an album for the sake of releasing an album. I'd take any In Flames album over it any day all day.

    By the way, quoting that lyric doesn't help your case. That lyric sounds like it could have came from any early 2000s whiny ass nu-metal band. Hardly "poetic" hardly "creative" and mostly writing something for the sake of doing so.

    What? That shit is deep man. Real man can, like, relate to that stuff, ya know...

    Were they like satanist or something when they wrote shitty lyrics like this?

    WTF is that shit about!? And when they play melodies with like, two guitars and stuff... and no chuggin', SO BORING.

    ASOP and STYE rulez. Dat growlz! :kickass:

    come back to me when you're a metal superstar like Anders or A88. The lyrics from Whoraclle don't even make any sense. It's like they took a bunch of long, gay words out of a dictionary and threw them together and said "that'll do" :D

    stye, come clarity and asop are real as real gets. lyrics that look into the soul of the individual human experience and breathe new life into what had been a dead genre. I pity your inability to experience that.

    If you want "as real as it gets" lyrics, SOAPF destroys anything else they've written.

    I don't know what being "a metal superstar" has to do with anything, and I don't know why the both of you are quoting lyrics from their older material. I never said once In Flames lyrics, old or new, were "deep" or "as real as it gets" with the exception of SOAPF. Honestly this isn't even about lyrics, it's about the music in general. I was stating that quoting the lyric you did didn't help your case because it literally sounds like any other angsty bullshit band. It isn't deep, it's not original, and it's nothing special, much like the rest of that album. I pity your inability to appreciate more meaningful material.

    If you think In Flames breathed life into a genre that was "dead" then you most certainly weren't paying any attention to what Soilwork was doing during the 2000s. Monster albums coming from them. The genre was far from "dead" during that time.

    Also, Black&White. :headbang: That stuff is like, ancient. Up there with the pyramids. And I love it. Jumpdafuckup! :hotjump:

    Music, beats, Anders' angelic voice, lyrics about interracial threesome. Just perfect.
