So what is the next big change? The vocals. Yes, Ander's high-pitched rasp is still ever present, perhaps showing some improvement over his Clayman performance, however he has now bitten the bullet and decided to try some full on cleanly sung vocals. Do they work? Yes, and no. On some songs they fit perfectly, adding a new dimension to In Flames not heard on previous releases. However I think I would be quite justified in saying that his vocals are far from perfect, and that at times, he doesn't sound entirely confident. It will also be interesting to see how they are pulled off live, as I have to admit, Ander's vocals are generally what I consider to be the weakest link in In Flames' live performance.Read more ›
Reroute is simply a state of the art melodic metal blueprint masterclass which many bands after hearing this,basically took. The melodies on hand here are simply beutiful,epic, and condensed.Each track is delivered with passion hard edged energy and all morphed around a dark yet uplifting chorus. Some folky elements enter the fold in the guile of dawn of a new day,reminding us that in flames took focus in writing a whole structured album with many atmospheres.
The vocal layers are very chorul,very warrior like,and the playing is brilliant. Now i must say sum tracks feel like letdowns,but only because the first 5 are that damn good. Baring transparent and Dark Signs i give every other track top marks 9 out of 10 minimum.
This one's a little more mainstream than the previous albums but it still has all the major In flames signature riffs, agression and just pure genius! There really isn't a bad track on this album, there's a couple that are a bit samey in places but this album quickly swings from the classic in flames sound, to newer sounding tunes with added synth and a couple of really quite good acoustic tracks!
These guys really are talented! If you're after a great death metal sounding album that'll stay in your cd player for ages, then this is it. It's the annoyingly catchy choruses that get you singing along and listening over and over!
Go buy it NOW!
Re-Route To Remain says it all really,maybe feeling that they had to change to get more commercial sucess,we know their label said that they would sell more cd's if they sang rather than growled and World of Promises (extra track on Clayman)showed us a little of what that would be like and worrying for me too.
So they have changed...alot...In Flames opened many eyes with their earlier releases,complex harmony guitars and some catchy tunes whilst remaining in lowered tuning and keeping it nice and heavy and mouthwatering almost Maidenesque in places.They were up tempo and had some amazing classical pieces thrown to the mix...And now this.
It's been stripped down to the raw much more proper singing and gone are the major harmony guitar parts that appealed greatly to people like me,it's mainly chords and harmonius vocals this time around.
It's still a heavy album and no doubt will bring them more sucess and mass appeal,it does have some really good songs on it but alot of people i spoke to at gigs prefere the old In Flames to this and i must confess so do i.
It's a good album and i can highly recomend it if u like heavy and catchy tunes,but to me and many others it's just not the In Flames we know and came to love.But as i said earlier the title says it all.
Reroute to Remain: The title track, one of the stronger ones. Begins with a great riff after a tiny build up, roars through the memorable verse and into the well-balanced chorus. A welcome solo is in about 2/3rds through. Great chorus. 
System: Starts like a tank, all at once. Verses are relentless, then slows down to the pre-chorus, which is sung. The chorus itself is inspired, totally catchy and utterly brilliant. The climax of the song (where the chorus is screamed at length not sung) is stunning. 
Drifter: Not the smartest or heaviest, but a good solid track. 
Trigger: Catchy as hell melodic chorus, catchy as hell verses, good riffs. But maybe drags on a little too long.. the edited version of it on the Trigger EP is sublime. 
Cloud Connected: One of the highlights. More melodic than most, sung verses for once but still heavy as f*ck. Very hummable. 
Transparent: Thrashy-turns-slower. Average track, nothing special. 
Dawn of a New Day: Acoustic (!), yet still moves along nicely. Still some screams. A new twist on the In Flames vibe, and on this track, its great. 
Egonomic: Fast, furious, bollocks-to-the-wall In Flames dementia, good chorus. 
Minus: Slightly anonymous.. takes a few listens to appreciate, but good. 
Dismiss the Cynics: Irritated me for a while, and sounds similar to Cloud Connected (this is a good thing). 
Free Fall: Great thumping rhythum, good marching song. Nice beat. 
Dark Signs: Slightly more melodic (again), retains the heaviness.Read more ›
