5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the Best In Flames Album June 8 2004
By Nathan
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Album... Jan. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is my first purchase of In Flames, and I am extremely impressed. I bought it after hearing "Embody the Invisible" on the Tony Hawk's Underground video game soundtrack, and I am also trying to get into better, more underground music (bacially, I'm trying to move away from Linkin Park and Saliva). I loved the song and thought the guitars were awesome, so I sampled some tracks off this album and went out and bought it.
Glad I did.
After listening to "ETI" 2 or 3 times, I listened to the rest of it. Almost every track is moving and all the tracks are very powerful. I love the guitar in the verses of "Colony", which I my favorite track on the album.
The vocals are, of course, heavy. Very emotional, though, and Anders Friden has a very powerful voice. A good singing voice (though it's mainly only heard in "Ordinary Story", but is heard in various other small parts) and an even better scream.
The guitarists are superb, as you could tell just by listening to the acoustic interlude "Pallar Anders Visa". They are obviously very skilled musicians.
The bass cannot be heard very well, like in most heavy bands, but it mainly follows the rhythm guitar, so it's good. I play bass and I'd like to see it used more in heavy music.
The drummer is also a very good musician. Very fast beatings as well as slow beats.
I HIGHLY recommend you check out this band. As I said before, they're all extremely talented, and I know I'll check out more of their works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colonizing The World Nov. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Colony" just like all the previous releases from In Flames is a masterpiece. Since their earlier works, In Flames has developed a unique sound that places them in a heavy metal category of their own. A style of metal, may I add, that perfectly combines melody to the rhythm that normally defines Death or Heavy Metal in general, therefore you have the term Melodic Death metal which I like to use.
Compared to their first two albums "Whoracle" and "Colony" do emphasize more on melody, the latter less than the former. However you don't have to worry, the combination of melody with rhythm os just perfect. I would recommend "Lunar Strain" or "The Jester Race" if you are more into death metal like many american metalheads are.
This album opens with the amazing "Embody The Invisible". A really strong track that In Flames opens their concerts with often. It is song that really kicks ass. I go insane everytime I hear it. "Ordinary Story" is by far the most famous track in this album. One of my favourite songs here. It starts with this drum beat and the riff kicks in. Amazing song. It is the song I play for those who have not heard In Flames before, so I agree with the band that it is the best song for a video in this album. Another favourite of mine is the title track "Colony". The riffs are just amazing. I don't understand how this band manages to keep such a low profile in america. They are thousands of times better than any american band that is making it big in the states. "Zombie Inc." and "Coerced Coexistence" deserve special mention too because of the intensity and raw emotion I get when listening to them. I love this album too much. Even though it is not my In Flames favourite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Melodic Death Metal With Heart Oct. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title of this review is an excellent description of this CD. In the 90's, most fans were complaining of the sad state of extreme metal until the release of At The Gates' "Slaughter of the Soul". This album held up the genre through the rest of the decade. A band so powerful, talented, and passionate is a very rare find in today's world.
As far as the music goes, it is like an extreme metal library. Speed meets thrash, and easy listening meets death metal, all at the same time on this album. Starting from the ultra-powerful opener, "Embody The Invisible", the CD does not let up until the 6th track, "Pallar Anders Visa". And that breather lasts about 1:30. The assault of constant galloping rythyms, melodic guitars, earthshaking bass, and extreme vocals just doesn't let up. This is a death/thrash metal fan's fantasy.
#1): "Embody The Invisible": A perfect opener. Ultra-heavy drumming meets melodic guitars and a rumbling bass, with shredded-throat vocals. This track is a great way to get the listener's attention from the get-go. 9/10
#2): "Ordinary Story": A much lighter track, with some choppy transitions, but otherwise still powerful. One of the best on the CD. 10/10
#3): "Scorn": Follows the blueprint of the previous two tracks. Faster than the previous two as well, and a much better bass pattern. 10/10
#4): "Colony": Still a heavy song, but much lighter and slower than the first three tracks. A highly addictive guitar riff highlights this track. 9/10
#5): "Zombie, Inc.": The heaviest track on the CD, and also the longest. By far the best. Crushing percussion, melodic guitars, and harsh, extreme vocals highlight this track. 10/10
#6): "Pallar Anders Visa": A good breather after track 5.
