In Flames - Where The Dead Ships Dwell
My Moment at Sonisphere was In Flames!
I got goose bumps, I sang, I couldnt stand still, I laughed, I screamed (so noone saw it, haha)
Here I stand in the middle of seated people in red.
They were really good, the singer Anders is a great audience man. As he is from Gothenburg and we in Stockholm feel somehow threatened by that city and vice versa, there were some jokes were made about it :D He also told all that go and buy the new album and today in arrived in our mailbox :D LOOOOVE IT!!
Stones were out there and took some pics for me :D
This was In Flames first gig in Sweden after releasing the new album and it sounded darn good, much better than from the album, some band have so much "help" on the album so the live act sounds worse but this wasent the matter in this case. It helped me to LOVE some tunes that I didnt feel that much for b4.
What im trying to point out here is that IT WAS FUCKING GREAT GIG!!!!!!!
For you that dont know so much of In Flames Ill tell you some.
In Flames, along with Dark Tranquillity and At the Gates, pioneered what is now known as melodic death metal. The founding members of all three bands all lived in Gothenburg, Sweden and they were all friends who shared the same musical interests. Eventually, that group of friends branched off into three bands with the same musical direction, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, and At the Gates all goodies.
Jesper Strömblad formed In Flames to write music that combined the melodic guitar style of Iron Maiden with the brutality of death metal, something which Jesper stated he had never heard any band do. In writing songs, Jesper also decided to make use of keyboards, something which was (at the time) uncommon in death metal. Ever since In Flames' debut studio album, Lunar Strain, the band has made use of keyboards, although other extreme metal bands such as Cradle of Filth had been using keyboards years before them. Despite their sometimes heavy use of keyboards in their music, they still refuse to recruit a full-time keyboardist.
Jesper has now left In Flames and a former guitarist Niclas Engelin came back instead, I do like Niclas although I love Jesper and what he done for In Flames I wish him a great future :D
Here is a pic on the backstage of Apollo stage.
