Melodic Death Metal band In Flames are considered as the founders of the so-called "Gothenburg Sound" along with Dark Tranquillity (both bands from the Swedish city of Gothenburg). The music is undeniably complex filled with an orchestra of guitars shifting from melodic leads to chugging rhythm riffs. Intense vicious drumming and guttural screamed vocals round out the band's powerful metal sound, though these elements are really nothing new. The song "Colony" is full of amazing guitar riffs and pure metal energy, while the instrumental "Pallar Anders Visa" has some nice acoustic guitar and a fitting string-section keyboard line. Another outstanding piece of the album is "Coerced Existence," which is an all around great song in terms of melody, heaviness, rhythm, and vocal variation. I got "Colony" blindly because the only song I heard from the album was "Embody the Invisible," which I thought was a good song and I am not much of a fan of Death-Metal, there are very few bands I will make exception to from this genre. This is all-in all a great album, and I suggest that you get it, even if you are a fan of classic Heavy-Metal like I am, you will find this very pleasing.
