Sweden's In Flames has issued the following statement about the recent death of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray:

"R.I.P Paul. When we found out about Paul’s death we were shocked. We had the privilege of getting to know him as early as 2000 and he was always a stand up guy. He will be missed dearly! Our thoughts go out to Paul’s family, friends and fellow band members. Rest in Peace Paul."

You guys get so butthurt. It's no surprise In Flames pays tribute to mallcore garbage. After all, Slipknot is the one who influenced them to play sh**ty music. Hence why In Flames hasn't released a tolerable album in over ten years.

Any band that put out as many good albums as In Flames has can never be categorized as a $hitty band. Everything up to and including Clayman is just classic.

Stuff, yes, that's exactly it. You caught me. In reality I just don't feel like having the typical metalhead d*** measuring contest by name-dropping the bands I listen too. It's pointless.

LOLS, because Deftones isn't even remotely like Slipknot and In Flames. Everyone respects Deftones. Nice job digging through my library to find an artist you dislike, LOL. It was hard to pick any random one, eh?

I love it how people tend to spread their OPINION as fact.
I personally love pretty much everything In Flames has done.
But that's just my opinion.
People like "You" are just irritating buttheads.
They can say anything they want about music I like and I couldn't care less.
It's just his opinion, don't take it so seriously

From fanboys like yourself, sure you have. I've already said why they are, please feel free to read my previous posts. Their glowing reviews on Metal Archives are one indication of the "good" things people say about them.
