      A great band with a great album

      In Flames, the Melodic Death Metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden is one of the most influential Death metal bands of this age. In my opinion Reroute to Remain was their best Album and my personal favourite from the band.

      Containing the amazing guitar skills of Jesper Strömblad and Björn Gelotte, which not only are amazingly heavy but also melodic mixed with the great and unique vocal styles of Anders Fridén. This album really show's the skill and talent that In flames can generate. With Two singles and Two music videos including 'Trigger' and 'Cloud Connected' from this album aswell as another 12 memorible tracks, this album will have any death metal fan listening to it over and over again.

      Overall a great album for any metal fan, with different styles and genres added in for good measure, this not only is a good buy but a album that has all the makings of a classic.

      In Flames We Trust ;D

      In Flames - Reroute to Remain (2004)

      In Flames has reached a new level with this album, which some of the fans aren't too happy with the major changes that they have made to their sound. The Swedish melodic death metal band that everyone once knew has taken a big change of direction with their music. Personally I don't think it's that bad it still has the sound of In Flames, but at times it does sound a little too plain.

      But I don't think In Flames has lost their edge yet, this album to me seems to be very groovy, and extremely catchy. System is the first track on this album, and is a pretty good example to hear the new sound of In Flames. Don't expect to be hearing another Whoracle, or Clayman from this album. As many people criticize In Flames today because of the new direction they have taken I don't think it's not as bad as fans make it sound. There are still plenty of catchy riffs, and guitar solos, along with some good drum fills too.

      In Flames' sixth album (2002).

      'Reroute to Remain' could easily be branded as In Flames' 'sell-out' album, though discerning listeners will have noticed the quality of their output slipping for a number of years previously. The style here is now far removed from their original, though is still essentially melodic death metal, albeit in a modernised form that's intended to be more acceptable to the standard, unadventurous reader of 'Kerrang!' magazine. Most songs are fairly slow and dull, and become incredibly repetitive as the album plods on, while Anders Friden now insists on combining his overly harsh yell with his irritatingly hoarse clean singing in almost every song.

      The band is so overproduced by this point that it sounds robotic, like a less skilled Fear Factory, and the riffs borrow more from groove metal than the band's own legacy. The band proves that it's long lost its knack for incorporating acoustic guitar effectively in 'Dawn of a New Day' and 'Metaphor,' and songs like 'Trigger' are worthless outside of the focal chorus. The most positive thing I could find about this album is that the cheesy melodic guitars of 'Clayman' have now largely been eradicated, though the riffs the band replaces them with are scarcely an improvement, and ultimately more forgettable.

      1. Reroute to Remain
      2. System
      3. Drifter
      4. Trigger
      5. Cloud Connected
      6. Transparent
      7. Dawn of a New Day
      8. Egonomic
      9. Minus
      10. Dismiss the Cynics
      11. Free Fall
      12. Dark Signs
      13. Metaphor
      14. Black and White
