Melodic Death Metal band In Flames returned in 2000 with a splendid rage materialized in the album Clayman. After the wonderful Colony, the Swedish band are back with a powerful release full of hits! Same line-up, but a slightly different recording sound, even more based on the tremendous guitar work of both Jesper Stromblad and Bjorn Gelotte. Anders Friden is at his best level on this album from the first note to the last and the duo Peter Iwers / Daniel Svensson provide a strong rhythm background.

Listened to this one yesterday after so long alongside Dark Tranquillity's Haven. Good times. One of the best of the genre.

This is a very good album - a lot of variety and yet consistently strong all the way through. Too many highlights to mention. A valuable addition to any respectable rock album collection.

Listen to Come Clarity. I've hated their "hit" Take This Life, and I've hated Anders's new vocals...

Reroute and Soundtrack are both very good records in their own rights. It's after that it went spiraling downhill.

Agree.... I actually preffer both Reroute and Soundtrack over Clayman. About their latest releases, I definitely do not like Come Clarity and A sense Of Purpose but there are some good tunes in the latest one.

My favourite Gothenburg album. The ultimate combination of melody and aggression. In Flames' most in-your-face album.

Bought this one last weekend and after the first listen i tough it was pretty bad because i was loocking for more awesome guitars like in Colony (it still has) but i listen more times and i like it a lot now. Maybe my rating will improve

The first IF album that I heard, and ofc I used to prefer it more back then cuz I had no idea how to the early IF was like. Not a bad album tbh, the strong songs are really strong here ("Pinball Map", "Only For The Weak", "Clayman"), but many of these other songs are worth nothing. I'm not biggest fan of the musical approach the band took on this album, but at least it's executed properly. The vocals are alright, though I highly preferred the old(er) vocals.

Actually, turned out to be my fav IF album. Used to prefer The Jester race days of this band.
And really dislike what they do nowadays.
But Clayman is so consistent, it has so many very good songs (highlights: Only for the weak and Square nothing).
Well, the highlights may be a bit brighter on TJR, but Clayman is just a very enjoyable, powerful, seemingly never-ending Gothenburg ride.
