In Flames is a metal band from Sweden that has constantly reinvented its sound throughout a decades long career. The band emerged out of Gothenburg, Sweden in 1990 playing melodic death metal and quickly collected a fan base of metal purists. Since the release of its debut album Lunar Strain, in 1994, the band's straightforward sound of screaming vocals and layered guitar melodies took on alternative metal elements as In Flames evolved to fit the times. Using sung vocals, prominent rhythm guitar sections, and synthesizers the band slowly split its fans yet simultaneously collected a broadened its audience. By the time its the band released its tenth album, Sounds of a Playground Fading in 2011, its sound held obvious American metal influences that make its music more accessible to western audiences.
