In Flames Have Been Waiting To Unleash New Album

MTV.com reports: It wasn't playing in broad daylight that bothered In Flames frontman Anders Fridén during his band's stint on this summer's Ozzfest, where the Swedish metallers served as the mainstage openers. It wasn't even the fact that In Flames were restricted to 20-minute sets, or that those sets were performed in arenas teeming with metalheads sitting in plastic seats and downing hot dogs and jumbo pretzels. That Fridén could deal with. But knowing In Flames had an entire album in the hopper, waiting to be unleashed upon the world, but no label deal that would get it out there on store shelves? That bothered him.

"It's been frustrating waiting this long to get an album out," he said of the band's eighth studio LP, Come Clarity, the cover art for which has already been illustrated by renowned metal and hardcore artiste Derek Hess. "It was finished in April [of 2005]. We wrote it at the end of 2004. And now it's going to be released on February 7. The songs still feel fresh to us and to our fans — no matter when it was recorded, it's a new album to them. I think it still represents In Flames and where we are. But it was hard."

Before signing with New Jersey's Ferret Music, In Flames spent the summer wondering just what would become of Come Clarity. Now that everything's in order and the brutal Swedes have a full U.S. tour planned with Trivium, DevilDriver and Zao (set to kick off in January), Fridén's trying to relax a bit. That, too, will be hard. In Flames need to devote loads of time to pre-tour rehearsals, as they'll be introducing a number of cuts they've never performed live — including material from 1994's Lunar Strain — into their set list.

On the topic of touring, was the Ozzfest gamble worth it for In Flames? The singer's not sure. "We saw it as a big promotional machine, and we got a chance to play in front of a huge crowd that doesn't normally listen to In Flames," he admitted. "But we won't know for sure until the album is out. I mean, looking back, I'd rather have been on the second stage."

Fridén considers Come Clarity "a bit more aggressive, and a bit more uptempo," but said it still possesses all the "elements of In Flames. It's always been about this balance between aggression and melody. It's just another step in our evolution. I don't know where we're going exactly. But I know where we've come from. We just try to top ourselves each time and be happy with the result. That's all we can do. Now it's up to the public to judge us."

He said the clip for the album's first single, "Take This Life," has been shot. It'll feature performance footage of the band superimposed across billboards in Times Square, interspersed with scenes from the video's mysterious story line. Fridén wouldn't discuss the details, as director Patric Ullaeus (Lacuna Coil, Dimmu Borgir) was still working on the video's overall concept at the time of the interview.

As if In Flames isn't keeping him busy enough, Fridén's also working on the second album from his side project Passenger.

"It's in the works, but I don't have time," he said. "I would like to release [a Passenger LP] sometime [in 2006], because we've recorded 10 of the album's 12 songs already. It's been a very slow process." Fridén once again worked with guitarist Niklas Engelin, bassist Hakan Skoger, drummer Patrik Sten and keyboardist Pierre Sten on the outing, which has no definitive release date yet.

Scandanavian Rock & Metal Book Released In 2006

RockDetector.com is publishing a two-volume book set, "Scandinavian Rock & Metal", in the first quarter of 2006. The books cover all styles of rock and metal from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. In the now-expected Rockdetector style, executive editor Garry Sharpe-Young covers each band's history in meticulous detail, including lineups, URLs and a complete discography, along with track listings, labels, catalogue numbers and chart positions. The two books will each be approximately 500 pages each, listing well over 1,200 bands covering heavy metal, death metal, black metal, melodic rock, progressive rock and beyond. Fjords, Vikings, the midnight sun and a thousand lakes — the perfect breeding ground for the most epic of heavy metal! Scandinavia has exported its rock and metal to all corners of the globe, ranging from the shred exploits of YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, the operatic pioneers NIGHTWISH, the pomptastic EUROPE, the heavyweight HAMMERFALL to the extremist forms of black and death metal in EMPEROR, MAYHEM, DIMMU BORGIR, MARDUK, DARKTHRONE and BURZUM. "Scandinavia has really been the hotbed for emerging rock talent for over a decade now," says Garry Sharpe-Young. "Once EUROPE, TNT and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN had made their mark on the international scene, Norway's floodgates opened and poured a black metal plague upon the world with BURZUM, EMPEROR, MAYHEM, DIMMU BORGIR, and DARKTHRONE. Since then, Sweden made a huge impact with acts such as HAMMERFALL, IN FLAMES, SOILWORK and KATATONIA and subsequently Finland has really raised its head and is now without question the most metal place on planet earth! All these bands, from all genre spectrums are included. Some of the band histories are positively labyrinthine when you get into the detail of who played for who under what pseudonym. This really is a true monster of a book."

The cover artwork for the upcoming IN FLAMES album, "Come Clarity", has been posted online at InFlames.com.

As previously reported, "Come Clarity" will include a free bonus DVD featuring the band performing the album in full in a rehearsal room, akin to what METALLICA did with initial versions of their "St. Anger" album. In addition, one of the album's songs — "Dead End" — features the vocals of Swedish singer/songwriter Lisa Miskovsky.

"Come Clarity", is scheduled for a February 7, 2006 North American release through Ferret Records. The CD will be issued in Europe on February 6, 2006 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The follow-up to 2004's "Soundtrack to Your Escape", "Come Clarity" was mixed at Tonteknik studio in Umeå, Sweden and is "the best one we've ever done," according to IN FLAMES guitarist Jesper Strömblad. A video for the album's opening track, "Take This Life", was shot late last month with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL).

"Come Clarity" track listing:

01. Take This Life
02. Leeches
03. Reflect The Storm
04. Dead End
05. Scream
06. Come Clarity
07. Vacuum
08. Pacing Death's Trail
09. Crawling Through Knives

IN FLAMES will be embarking on a North American headlining tour in support of "Come Clarity" beginning in late January. Support at the shows will come from Orlando's TRIVIUM, California's DEVILDRIVER and Greensburg, Pennsylvania's ZAO.

The extended trek will represent IN FLAMES' first North American dates since their main-stage appearances as part of Ozzfest 2005 and will kick off the band's most extensive touring on the continent in their decade-plus history.

In Flames Drummer To Sit Out Motorhead Tour

In Flames has posted this message on their official website:

"Greetings People Of Earth....... We come with news.....

"First we would like to let all you people in the UK know that we will be doing the Motorhead tour without Daniel.
The reason for this is that he is becoming a father for the second time!

"We asked an old friend of ours, Tobbe Kellgren, to handle the drums for the tour and he gladly accepted.

"Daniel will be back on the next tour again.

"Furthermore - we had a listeningparty for our new album COME CLARITY with mediapeople and guests at the Storan Theater here in Gothenburg. For this special occasion we made a "rehearsal video" for the whole album that we showed to our guests.
Directing it was once again Patric Ullaeus! Patric and Anders worked really hard to get it done in time for the viewing and when the rest of us saw it it blew us away! Hopefully this is something that also YOU will be able to enjoy in the future - we?ll see..

"The release date for Come Clarity is approaching fast and we have some touringplans to announce:

"We will start a US tour in the end of January that will be running until the end of February. After that we are touring Europe from early March until April sometime. We will let you know as soon as we have some details (dates, support, etc.). On this Eurotrip we will try to do at least 5-7 shows in the UK - hopefully even getting to Ireland for the first time!

"And finally - we will shoot a video for the song "Take This Life" during this week. Patric Ullaeus will be directing and we will let you guys know more details as they unfold..

"Thats it for now - but we will return with more updates soon.

"In Flames signing out..."
