"In Flames are the melo-death masters, true pioneers with a towering legacy and one of the best live bands on the planet. If you don’t love them, you’re probably a dick."
“True to form, rife with rich, uplifting melodies and a rousing, cinematic feel, Battles maintains the high standard the quintet hold themselves to while also boasting a compelling freshness.”
Complete with 14 songs, the album showcases a new musical approach for the band while still staying true to themselves thus creating a whole new fan base while bringing their original fans along for the ride. With pounding, anthem-like force, the band’s first single, “The Truth” is instantly infectious, and currently trending Top 25 at Active Rock radio.
