In Flames’ Anders Fridén Says New Album Is “Very Melodic” And “More Uptempo”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Anders Fridén talked a bit about the new In Flames album. According to him, it is “very melodic” and “more uptempo than ‘Battles'”

Fridén said the following:

“…I don’t really have a grip of it just yet because we’re working on all the tracks. Like with our last record, we came here with nothing and created something so it is difficult to sum it up, but so far, it sounds very In Flames, there’s no surprises there. I think it sounds great and it has all the essentials that we want for an In Flames album; there’s melodies, screaming on various tracks, hooks everywhere. I think if you are into In Flames and what we’ve done for the past 20 years or so, you should be happy. I’m very, very happy!”

He also added:

“Well, we’ve always been a melodic band but it comes out in different forms: the guitars, vocals, keyboards or whatever. This is very melodic, too, but I would say this is more uptempo than ‘Battles‘. I think it has more similarities to ‘Sounds Of A Playground Fading‘ but don’t quote me on that… I guess you will, ha ha!”
