Following their first studio album, Lunar Strain, 1994's Subterranean EP is more than a fine piece of Melodic Death Metal. It contains good material, such as 'Stand Ablaze', 'Ever Dying' and 'Subterranean' that are needed to the knowledge of any In Flames' fan.

Whereas 'Stand Ablaze' sounds almost experimental , 'Ever Dying' is maybe their best composition ever, melting acoustic guitar lines with death riffs and great vocals with talent and ending with one of their most enchanting melodies. The song 'Subterranean' is not bad at all, but sounds a little bit different from Lunar Strain to me . It was, in fact, a very important composition for In flames because it sounds closer to what they would play around 1997 . 'Timeless' is another acoustic track, nice but not essential and 'Biosphere' is already on Lunar Strain...

I was never really keen on EPs. I've always had a feeling that you get too little for your money. Being a dedicated In Flames fan, I was aware of the presence of this EP but never felt the need to buy it (nor was I able to, since it sold out years ago...). Until I saw the reissue (there is a certain amount of confusion whether it was released in 2005 or 2006), that is. Nine tracks instead of 5, OK, that seems like a fine amount of additional pleasure for my 15C... So, what's it like?

This is the best In Flames album to me. And it doesn't even matter if it's ep or lp, the fact is that this album contains 20+ mins of killer material. Production is really good (not sure about the original, this one I'm listening is the remaster). Best tracks here are IMO "Subterranean" and "Biosphere", but TBH all of the tracks are great.

I'd love to hear this live! A dream that will most surely never come true.
