Below is our complete In Flames news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY kicked off their first U.S. tour in support of "Doomsday Machine", their highly anticipated new album, last week on Ozzfest to rave reviews. The dynamic offering was mixed by acclaimed producer Andy Sneap (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, NEVERMORE, OPETH) and features striking cover art by renowned artist Joachim Luetke (DIMMU BORGIR). A video for the track "Nemesis", shot by renowned director George Bravo (who also shot the group's "We Will Rise" clip), is now complete; look for it to make its "Headbanger's Ball" and "Metal Asylum" debut early next month. Be sure to also check out Decibel magazine's striking Angela Gossow cover feature, which is currently on stands.
Daniel Erlandsson (drums) checks in with a report from the road: "We are now back on track again after having missed the Camden, N.J. show, which was very disappointing, but shit happens and tour busses do break down. We ended up drinking ourselves silly while listening to old SCORPIONS albums in a parking lot.
"We just played another Ozzfest show today, this time in Darien Lakes, which is close to Buffalo. It was a great show, and we received an amazing response. We are playing one new song, 'Nemesis', off our new album, 'Doomsday Machine', and it is great to see the fans' amazing responses. A big thank you to all the people getting it on in the moshpit and all the people attending the FYE and Jägermeister signing sessions after our set, you all rule! Tomorrow we're playing another off-date show in London, Ontario with IN FLAMES and TRIVIUM, which should be another good one. We are looking forward to seeing all the fans there.
"No more groundbreaking news from here apart from me witnessing a couple of famous faces in the catering area. I'll have to leave you guessing."
The official In Flames has been revamped. Check it out here.
In other news, IF bassist, Peter Iwers, has posted this message on the website regarding the first Ozzfest show:
Hey all! We just started this whole roundtrip with the Ozzfest and the first show was yesterday!
Wow, we really had a blast , I'm really looking forward to the next shows as well...
I was a bit worried that people wouldn't get over to our stage in time, but once we hit the stage I was fine, everybody seemed to know about the fact that we'll start a few minutes early on every ozzfest and got over from the 2:nd stage in time for our show....great crowd too!!!!
Added a few pictures of me and Jepser doing a walkabout in Glens Falls here, enjoy and I'll talk to u soon at my corner...cheers / Peter

In Flames frontman Anders has posted the following message on the band's official website:
Anders here. I’m in Dug out studio recording my vocals for our new album. Want the title.....drumroll......”CRAWL THROUGH KNIVES”. Yes there it is my friends. Now you can speculate and decide if you will like the album or not....... irony is a wonderful thing.
Everything is going great 8 out of 13 songs done and some titles are: Crawl through knives, Dead end, Leeches, Surrender?, Reflect the storm, Take this life. I feel it’s a good mix of everything IN FLAMES stands for, but it’s me speaking....
Next week we’ll start mixing in Tonteknink/Umeå and at the end of May the album is DONE.

upstate New York's GIZMACHI have now officially filled one of the "mystery band" slots on the second stage of this year's Ozzfest.
GIZMACHI will release their debut CD, "The Imbuing", on May 3 on Big Orange Clown Records, an imprint of Sanctuary Records. "The Imbuing" was produced by SLIPKNOT's M. Shawn Crahan (who also founded Big Orange Clown Records), engineered by Josh Wilbur and recorded at Spin Studios in New York City. GIZMACHI is comprised of Sean Kane on vocals, Jay Hannon and Mike Laurino on guitars, Kris Gilmore on bass and Jimmie Hatcher on drums.
The band filmed the video for their first single, "The Answer", in February in New York. The video was directed by Crahan and produced by Doug Spangenberg (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, LAMB OF GOD, EVERY TIME I DIE).
Ozzfest 2005 billing is now shaping up as follows: More...
Nuclear Blast USA has confirmed that Sweden's IN FLAMES are officially to open the Ozzfest Main Stage. They also state that there will be no overlap of music between Rob Zombie's Second Stage set and when IN FLAMES will begin their performance.
It appears that, according to Ozzfest.com's bands page, In Flames have been moved from the second stage to the main stage now. While one mystery slot remains on the second stage and main stage, Velvet Revolver is expected to be that main stage "mystery band" from August 23rd to September 4th.
Arch Enemy and In Flames will be doing shows on their off days on Ozzfest this year. Dates to be announced as they become available.
According to a posting on In Flames' official web site, the band have finished shooting a video for the song "My Sweet Shadow" (not for "F(r)iend," as previously reported) with director Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom and Lacuna Coil, among others. The shoot took place in early April, "and as usual, Patric did a glorious job. The video looks awesome and is really something extraordinary," reads a posting on the site.
In other news, In Flames guitarist Björn Gelotte and bassist Peter Iwers collaborated with James Murphy (Ex-Death, Testament, Obituary) on a tribute to late Death/Control Denied mainman Chuck Schuldiner. Björn plays on 'Flattening Of Emotions' from the Death album "Human," while Peter appears on 'Baptized In Blood' from "Scream Bloody Gore."
