Time stood still tonight when the calendar shifted into a new day: February 10th marks the beginning of a new era not only for Swedish modern metal visionaries IN FLAMES but for the whole metal community. Today marks the release of the band’s fourteenth studio album Foregone – the new masterpiece from a band whose artistry and influence on modern metal is undeniable.
Foregone, the furious new studio album, combines the greatest aggressive, metallic, and melodic strengths of their landmark records with the seasoned song writing of their contemporary era.
A sense of pride, accomplishment, and continued vitality are evident every time the band takes the stage, and all over Foregone. The album itself represents IN FLAMES past, present, and future.
