I used to be a huge fan of In Flames in my formative metal years. They were my first live metal show as well, and they certainly did not disappoint. Unfortunately, some circumstances occurred since then (less than stellar records and a growing music taste) that put them on the outskirts of my immediate radar. It’s a shame, but life goes on.

The band has announced an upcoming headlining tour in North America that actually looks like it’d be pretty good. I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing it, but it’s definitely a show I would have loved to see a couple of years ago, featuring Trivium, Veil of Maya, and Kyng.
