IN FLAMES geben wieder richtig Death Metallisch Gas, zumindest wenn die gerade erschienene Single `Foregone Pt. 1` vom neu für den 10 Februar 2023 angekündigten vierzehnten Longplayer „Foregone“ einen passenden Eindruck vermittelt. Hören und sehen könnt ihr den neuen erstarkten Song im Video.
Frontmann Anders Fridén:
„Going into the Foregone sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums. We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That’s the DNA of our music. From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time.Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.
It’s crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album. I feel that we’ve found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with Forgone. This is a new era of In Flames!“
Find a way to bring me home
Darkness is washing over the sky
When all the trees have burned down
Where does the crow fly?
Take this as an offering
Empty promises are dead
All the rage and pain is gone
Soon all the rivers run red
All that matters is gone
There is nowhere else to go
No place for us to hide
Nothing above and nothing below
And the world has closed its eyes
Mother time draws her final breath
The innocent washed away
The condemned, the dance of death
It was easy to hide in the crowd
We acted numb to the warnings ahead
With everything that’s rotten
Even the marching ants have fled
