Exploding over their entrance music and overwhelming it with large chunky sounding guitars, In Flames take to the stage.

Having been around for well over ten years, you would expect the band has quite a lot of material to choose from. Their sound comprises of a mixture of different styles of metal from traces of death metal through to the more classic ones. The songs have gut wrenchingly powerful guitar sounds, heavy bass and a harsh but steady drum beat. Throughout the set the singer employs a fair range of different vocals and never fails to capture them at the right moment, not such an easy task especially when performing live to a heavily populated crowd.

At the other end, In Flames can pull off some great songs with a clear melodic feel underlining and driving some awesome heavy metal tunes. The keyboards are well integrated into the songs, are well balanced out, and play an important part in the band.

After blasting through a killer set, the band finishes off how they started with the electronic sounding atmospheric theme.
