Out of Sweden, In Flames is a band who has been altering their sound continuously every couple of albums. Well, this time this album sounds nothing like their last album. I mean, everything falls within the Metal genre, but they certainly have explored within that genre for a sound that is all their own.
Unfortunately for the band much of the stuff on this album is music we've all heard before and don't want to hear again. I guess bored is the word that most accurately describes how you feel while listening to it. The album is full of short songs (with one notable exception) that are full of testosterone. They do write catchy hooks but there is better metal music out there, so there really is no impetus to pick up this album.
I think they should spin the metal wheel again and come up with a new and fresher sound for their next release.
