In Flames - Re-Sign With Nuclear Blast, Share New Single


Today, experienced Swedish metallers Flames have re-signed with Nuclear Blast Records, extending their partnership on a worldwide level. Following this news, In Flames have also released a new single titled "State Of Slow Decay".

Marcus Hammer, the managing director of Nuclear Blast, states: "We are extremely happy to welcome In Flames back into the NBR family on a worldwide basis. Here’s the message to the Metal world: A new Metal masterpiece is about to drop and you can guarantee there is no decay visible. Quite the contrary; In Flames and Nuclear Blast will kill it together - once again and stronger than ever!"

Nathan Barley Phillips, Senior A&R, comments: "As a dedicated long-serving Jesterhead myself, it gives me great pleasure to represent In Flames as they embark on this exciting new chapter of their illustrious career. I cannot wait for you all to hear what this incredible band have in store!"




Anders Fridén adds on "State Of Slow Decay": "We have always done our own thing without any pressure from the outside world, BUT being back with Nuclear Blast worldwide has for sure inspired us to write a host of new material that includes the past, the present and the future. "State Of Slow Decay" includes everything that In Flames are known for, but it’s more than just a song, it’s a fucking statement. I couldn’t be happier to release this as a taste of what's to come."

I wouldn't go as far as to say this is good, but I'm really surprised it doesn't blow.

What is going on?? The Halo Effect... and now this.

Tell me this is going to be the only one song that really sounds like Inflames song on this album, I can't have too high expectations for Inflames albums since they become what they become back in early 200x

I think The Halo Effect and the warm reception that band is having is getting In Flames nervous. I mean it consists of 5 former members, some of which were around during their "Hot Topic" metal phase and might pull some fans away.

Yeah I thought so too, I think we can clearly tell it it's true or not once we see the final album, I am very curious now but keeping my expectations low

p.s oh, now I c Niclas Engelin has recently left, I thought he played in both The Hallo Effect and Inflames, seems he ditched Inflames for The Hallo Effect.

This caught me off guard! Didn't expect much from them at this point given their latest releases, but this song as actually pretty amazing! If the rest of the album is in the same vein, then I'm definitely in \m/

That's a very plausible possibility, they might be tempted to do one or two nostalgic singles and keep the modern sound for most of the album. I hope I'm wrong though...

"Reroute to Remain" & "Soundtrack to Your Escape" weren't that terrible either imo.

I kind of agree. I enjoyed the HE songs that they have put out, but none made me replay them right after finishing listening to them. This one I blasted all day long yesterday.

I kind of disagree. The Halo Effect's songs brought tears of joy to my eyes. This just made me happy

It's decent until the chorus. Even that pre-chorus sounds like the Everything's Gone riff, though...

Can't get hopes up too much, I, The Mask teased everybody with the title track being good, but the rest of the album was as shit as everything else after Jesper left.

Am I the only one in this forum who thinks this sounds like an AT THE GATES' Slaughter of the soul rip-off? Thx

Sounds similar but I wouldn´t call it a rip-off, either way this is probably their best song sice the late 2000's. Really looking forward they are cooking up for the next album.

Founding member aside, maybe they should get rid of the singer

Haha, that's like saying "compose your own Metal album and upload it here, instead of writing a review of an album". :lol:
