With their ongoing crusade to sign the cream of the worlds metal elite showing no end in sight, Nuclear Blast Records has welcomed the addition of Swedish legends In Flames to its already stellar roster.
The band are currently putting together a live DVD release, and you can read what they had to say of the new partnership below:
Anders Friden (In Flames); ‘In a way, IN FLAMES and Nuclear Blast share a similar story. Both started in a garage in Europe, both love metal and both have grown a lot bigger over the years. For these reasons, it seemed a natural fit to come back to the place it all started’.
Markus Staiger (Nuclear Blast CEO); ‘We’re enormously happy that IN FLAMES decided to return and trust in us for the second time – Nuclear Blast is their home again from now on. I remember well how their debut album, ‘Lunar Strain’, inspired me back in the days. I was totally fascinated by their great and absolutely unique blend of death metal with delicate melodies. One year later, IN FLAMES signed with us and released eight splendid records over the years, including groundbreaking classics such as ‘Whoracle’, ‘Clayman’, and ‘Reroute To Remain’. IN FLAMES developed all the time, reinvented themselves again and again and enthused fans of various genres with their always innovative sound. We’re looking forward to the common future with Anders, Björn, Peter, and Niclas’.
