Customer Review

on 28 February 2004
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.
