Swedish melodic death metal legends In Flames have announced their highly anticipated new album Foregone. Speculation has been swirling about the band’s plans since their recent re-signing to Nuclear Blast, the label they were on in the 90’s and 2000’s. Foregone is due out via Nuclear Blast on February 10th, 2023. You can pre-order your copy HERE.

The band has also released a raging new single, “Foregone, Pt. 1” complete with visualizer. The visualizer was created by Oleg Rooz using cutting edge AI technology to create the visuals, making In Flames one of the first bands to use AI to create a music video. The visuals themselves are haunting and very fitting for the furious track.

Frontman Anders Fridén states, “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.”

He continues, “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.”

Fridén finishes, “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!”
