Here is an important CD, the first official release of Swedish In Flames. 1994's Lunar Strain is indeed a monument in the world of Melodic Death Metal, especially if you consider that 1994 is almost ten years from now. At that time, the band is still more a bunch of musicians than a band, and, by the way, it can be considered as a mix between Dark Tranquillity and In Flames, seeing that Mikael Stanne handled the vocals on Lunar Strain!

Nice debut. The session vocals give it a new flavour.

Jesper is a real fucking genius! This is a masterpiece, just like The Jester Race and Whoracle! I just didn't give it a 10 because of the production.

Majority of the songs on this album indeed are average, but I find "Behind Space", "Lunar Strain", "In Flames" and "Upon An Oaken Throne" to be good rather than average.

Starforsaken and In Flames are real gems. It would be interesting to hear all of these songs in more modern production.
