The Halo Effect (Ex-In Flames) Premiere “Days Of The Lost” Music Video

The Halo Effect, the new band featuring former In Flames members Mikael Stanne, Jesper Strömblad, Niclas Engelin, Peter Iwers, and Daniel Svensson, have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Days Of The Lost.” That effort will be released on August 12.

Stanne commented:

“‘Days Of The Lost’ is about finding your place in life, about making that outcast experience into something that propels you forward.

We all met in our mid-teens and we were all trying to find direction, motivation and meaning. Thankfully, we found it in creativity and music and we shared this passion and made something from it that remains an essential part of who we are as individuals and as parts of a whole.

So this is us reflecting on our past, while watching a new generation slowly but surely find their path. It’s about standing up, being your true self and about not letting anything stand in your way.

Our choices and our paths have led to all kinds of things but we wouldn’t change a thing.”

The Halo Effect (Ex-In Flames) Tease New Song “Days Of The Lost”

The Halo Effect (Ex-In Flames) Premiere “Feel What I Believe” Music Video

The Halo Effect, the new band featuring former In Flames members Mikael Stanne, Jesper Strömblad, Niclas Engelin, Peter Iwers, and Daniel Svensson, have premiered a new video for their new song “Feel What I Believe.” You can check that out below:

Stanne commented:

“‘Feel What I Believe’ is basically about how it felt growing up and discovering extreme metal in our late teens. Delving into something that was both frightening and alluring at the same time. And having that as the sole focus as you started playing in a band and in essence decided who you wanted to be. That confidence and laser focus is what still fascinates me. I love that this somehow endured over the years. This is basically us at 19 screaming, ‘How don’t you understand this?’ And even if people around us didn’t get it at the time, at least they could see our passion for it and that’s what this song is about.

The video is also reminiscent of the videos we saw growing up. A bunch of long-haired people in an abandoned warehouse playing loud music while trying to look cool, basically. What we did here though is bring it to another level thanks to Theo Gabay and his amazing team. I love that it captures the vibe of us playing and really enjoying what we do. Also it looks spectacular.”

The Halo Effect (Ex-In Flames) Premiere “Shadowminds” Music Video

The Halo Effect, the new band featuring former In Flames members Mikael Stanne, Jesper Strömblad, Niclas Engelin, Peter Iwers, and Daniel Svensson, have premiered a new video for their new song “Shadowminds.” The group had the following to say about that:

“We are incredibly excited to unveil this new band with one of the first songs that we wrote together. We felt strongly that this was the right direction for the band. Finding identity, finding a drive and passion is what the song is about and also what this band is about. What drove us to do this in the first place, what obstacles have we overcome in order to fully commit to this lifestyle? It’s about how easy it is to get lost if you lose focus and passion for what you do. With the video we wanted to convey the emptiness of the city in the early stages of the pandemic and what we saw outside of the studio as we were writing but we also love the cool dystopic imagery so we made the city look even more barren and destroyed. Enjoy!”

The Halo Effect (Ex-In Flames) Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

The Halo Effect, the new band featuring former In Flames members Mikael Stanne, Jesper Strömblad, Niclas Engelin, Peter Iwers, and Daniel Svensson, have officially signed with Nuclear Blast Records. The group’s first single “Shadowminds” will be released on November 9.

The band commented:

“Having grown up alongside Nuclear Blast in the early days of extreme metal, it just makes perfect sense for The Halo Effect to partner with this prestigous label. Our music holds true to our roots and what made us who we are today while trusting our shared experiences to move forward. Joining our old and new friends at Nuclear Blast Records is an honour and a privilege and we look forward to to releasing this labour of love for metal together!”

Nuclear Blast Europe‘s head of A&R Jens Prueter added:

“In 2009 I was going to Gothenburg to produce the ‘Where Death Is Most Alive‘ documentary for a Dark Tranquillity DVD. Getting deeper into the Gothenburg scene, going through hours of archive footage and listening to all the interviews, I though it was a jungle of incest.

In the early 90s a bunch of guys moved between In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Ceremonial Oath, Hammerfall and many more. We shouldn’t forget that most of the protagonists were still teenagers when they released their first ‘Desecrator‘ or ‘Septic Broiler‘ demo tapes. What looked like incest was just a group of friends who shared a deep passion for metal.

You could call it an all-star band but it’s basically just an all-family band. Listening to The Halo Effect is like going to a New Year’s dinner enjoying the best food and drinks of the year. And it’s a pleasure to be invited and share the joy with the rest of the world. Cheers!”

As previously reported, The Halo Effect will be opening for Amon Amarth and Machine Head on their co-headlining European/UK tour next year.
