In Flames is one of those neat bands that you never really come across these days. With the radios being piled up with crap, and I know I should respect other's tastes in music, but I just have to say what it is.... bands like these come to break the barrier. While you will probably NEVER find an In Flames song on the radio, you might as well check them out. These guys are such talented musicians, and they certainly show it on this album. The two guitarists do a amazing job on the songs on this album. Solos and all, everything is just amazing, dark, and beautiful at the same time. The drumming is top notch, and typical metal drumming.. (double-bass,fast beats, lots of percussion.) Anders Friden is a great death vocalist, as it is not like the infamous cookie monster vox, nor is it a shrilling scream like Cradle of Filth or Mayhem. If you want an excellent metal album, I could suggest many, and Colony would be one. Go check this album out, you'll love it if it's your kinda music.
