Swedish metallers IN FLAMES have made their new album, "A Sense of Purpose," available for streaming in its entirety on the band's MySpace page (the stream will be available for one week). Due in North America on April 1 via Koch Records (April 7 in most of Europe through Nuclear Blast), the follow-up to 2006's "Come Clarity" was recorded at the band's own IF Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden and was mixed by Toby Wright (METALLICA, SLAYER). The group received assistance during the vocal-recording sessions from producer Daniel Bergstrand, who previously produced the vocals on "Reroute To Remain", "Soundtrack To Your Escape" and "Come Clarity". All artwork for the album was created by Alex Pardee for ZeroFriends. Alex also created the artwork for the first single, "The Mirror's Truth".

Further proof that even though they can write Whoracle style guitar parts they choose to play simplistic Americanized guitar riffs.

And those vocals. . .Anders was never a great vocalist but wow his screams got bad.

Colony do you like this new In Flames album more than the new Soilwork? I am just curious - I have only heard Soilwork, so far. Soilwork has the better vocalist, IMO.

I think that In Flames' old songs were and still are much better than that of the new album, A Sense of Purpose. Some songs from the album before A Sense of Purpose, Come Clarity, had some good songs like Dead End, Come Clarity and a few others. But over these few years they have gotten worse and worse. I think all the bands that are changing their style should return to their more original sounds and work on it to improve guitars, drums, bass, keyboard, vocals etc. This In Flames album sounds alot more like Nu Metal than it does Melodic Death Metal.

I dig it. To me alot of their material on more of the recent albums sounded the same. And alot of bands name In Flames as one of their biggest influences and A Sense of Purpose shows why. I agree that it doesnt sound like melodic death metal but nu metal? nah alot of metalcore but not that sh**e

I didn't like it. All the songs sounded the same. I could have saved some time and just downloaded the first song and put it on repeat.
