IN FLAMES' Anders Fridén Talks About The Rise Of The Gothenburg Metal Scene & His Musical Vision!
For over 20 years the members of In Flames have been on a constant musical evolution in which they have pushed the boundaries of the Gothenburg Swedish Melodic Death Metal scene to the limit. While some may say that the band has experimented way too much with their sound, the reality is that In Flames have always stood out for making sure that every record they release is a different chapter of the In Flames book. With the release of their 10th studio album entitled 'Sounds of a Playground Fading' last year via Century Media Records, the band once again is proving that they do not like playing it safe.
During the bands recent successful tour with Trivium, Veil Of Maya and Kyng, we had the chance to chat with In Flames' frontman Anders Fridén about the rise of the Gothenburg Swedish Melodic Death Metal scene and the musical evolution of In Flames. We also talked to him about the future of In Flames. This interview took place backstage during the sold out show at the Best Theater in New York Metal City! Watch this interview now, and share it with all your friends!
