This album, in all respect to other bands, rules all over the place. Gyroscope is my 'favourite of the lot'. The vocals seem to fall perfectly with the music in the background, and the guitars are very snarly and throaty.
Rather than the slightly more mainstream Clayman (still worthy of 5 stars), or the calamity that is Soundtrack to Your Escape, Whoracle, shows In Flames at their very best, with a completly unique sound and feel.
If you like Colony, you will definetly like this. The only minor hitch is that the whole album can sound a bit samey in places. (Track 7-9). 1-5 are completly unique, and I havent heard anything similar from other bands.
Basically, buy it unless you love linkin park clones. If you do, go and have a look at Soundtrack to Your Escape, it will be more to your tastes.

It was this album in which In Flames really perfected their sound. Everything about this album is fantastic from the awesome melody introducing Jotun, to the wonderful album outro, Whoracle. Anders Friden moves away from the more American death metal voice that he used for The Jester Race and adopts a more distinctive one, and one which is fundamentally flawless. The lead guitar on this album drives it with one memorable melody after another. From Jotun to Jester Script Transfigured to Everything Counts, this album is filled with incredible musicianship and heart. However, it seems that this album is missing one of the key elements which most albums of the 90's seem to contain; the album filler. Every track is magnificent, there is nothing missing from this classic and it should not be missing from anyone's CD collection.

Released back in 1997, “Whoracle” was the fifth release from this extremely talented and original Death Metal outfit. The Swedish five-piece have managed to produce an album that reflects their brutal aggression with the haunting melodic nature that sets the band away from the rest. The songs seem to stir up an almost supernatural world of horror and the macabre with their atmospheric metal producing tapping into the listeners psyche. ‘Whoracle’ is no exception to this groups awesome talent at song writing and displays their technical ability and sheer talent at this music genre.
The production and recording is superb, with a clear crisp reproduction of the band’s complex and layered sound. Guitarist Bjorn Gelotte played both guitars and drums on the album showing off his musical talent well. At the time of this recording, the group’s line-up included three guitar players – the already mentioned Bjorn Gelotte, Jesper Stromblad and Glenn Ljungstrom.
The album was released in three different versions. There was the original 1997 version, the Japanese version which includes the entire “Black Ash Inheritance EP” and the more recent 2002 ‘Deluxe Edition’ re-release which includes the bonus track “Clad In Shadows ‘99” and the following extras for a computer:
- Video Clip “Jotun”
- Photogallery
- Lyrics
- Winamp Skins
- Wallpapers
- Screensavers
The CD takes you through a weird world created through their inspirational death metal. It includes a cover version of the Depeche Mode song “Everything Counts” that is truly awesome. If you haven’t heard this album yet, I strongly recommend that you pick up a copy straight away. This is a work of genius by this long standing melodic death metal group.

In Flames’ last album ‘Reroute To Remain’ was a little bit of a patchy effort, as most fans seem to agree. It does have some good songs, but there is a lot more filler than you’d expect from a band as good as this. On ‘Whoracle’ though, this is not a problem. Probably the finest album of their career so far, and one they’re unlikely to ever better, it’s as good an example you’ll ever hear of Melodic Death Metal. Everything just falls perfectly into place on this album, with the folky elements still present, along with some crushing Thrash riffing, Iron Maiden-esque lead harmonies and some extremely catchy shout-along choruses. As is par for the course with In Flames, some of the soloing is of the highest standard and will impress even the most demanding of musos. Stand-out tracks for me have to be ‘Food For The Gods’ and ‘Morphing Into Primal’ but in truth every song on here is pure class. However, special mention has to go to the band’s cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘Everything Counts’. As a metalhead who also likes Depeche Mode, I’m in a bit of a minority, but this version could have been tailor-made to please me. For fans of bands like Soilwork, Dark Tranquility or even At The Gates, this is an indispensible album, buy it without any hesitation.

The Jester race was the breakthrough for In Flames and made alot of people stand up and take notice with its majestic leads, chunky riffs and epic combination of melodic death and guitar hero power metal. An then along came Whoracle, which proved that they were a world class band and cememnted them in metals hall of fame

Whoracle takes the template laid down on earlier works to the next level. its slightly more focused song writing wise, and there's much less of an emphasis in trying to be overly technical. instead, we have a much more solid performance, with some really power chords and riffs as well as the traedmark dual guitar melodies. Fan favourite Jotun is a great example; infectious hooks (don't those leads remind you of Blind Guardian?), strong rhythm section, crunchy guitars and a real fist pumping sing along feel despite the death metal energy. Similarly, Episode 666 has a great galloping thrash feel and an anthemic chorus thats just burtsing with intesnity, with other fast numbers like the Hive or the brutal Morphing Into Primal showing that In Flames can flex with the best of em.

But whats also great about Whoracle is that they mix it up alot. The Jester Script Transfigured has a wonderful acoustic verse with suddenly explodes into a metallic scream along, and Worlds Within the Margin is a grim number with eerie keyboards and more of a brooding, heavier feel. To top it of we have Gyroscope, a beautiful mid paced number with very vintage In Flames riffing and classical guitar elements. Easily my fav of the album (and probably the band) you can see why this is still a staple of In Flames live sets. Also, i think Anders gives his best vocal performance on this one, he sounded pretty bad on DTs 'Skydancer' and he was all over the place on Jester Race.
