IN FLAMES Release New Track ‘The End’


Swedish metallers IN FLAMES will release their twelfth studio album, “Battles“, on November 11 via via Nuclear Blast. They’ve released a new song from the album titled “The End“. You can hear it below.

Guitarist Björn Gelotte described “The End” to Decibel magazine as “a fairly straightforward IN FLAMES song. Having said that, it’s a really positive vibe [to] the song. It’s not a slash-your-wrists kind of vibe; it makes you realize to just make sure you appreciate that moment.

Gelotte also talked about how the recording process for “Battles” compared to that of its predecessor, 2014’s “Siren Charms“:

‘Siren Charms’ had a very dark vibe to it.We recorded it at a cold, damp and dark time during the year in Berlin so it gave it a certain melancholy to the record. Now recording in L.A. with the sunshine, it’s a different energy. The writing process was different this time, too — that I would like for us to continue to explore. Also, working with Howard and his team was great. I got stressed taking a break for even five minutes because they were always ready to go for the next take and kept my energy up.

“Guitar driven, melodic… it’s like they know what to expect,” singer Andres Fridén says of the band’s fanbase. “It’s not like we’re coming out with something completely different, but at the same time it’s still new. If they already like In Flames, they will like it—and if they don’t like In Flames already, they still might like it. I’m very proud of it and hopefully people will be as well.”
