Staff review by

Here is an important CD, the first official release of Swedish In Flames. 1994's Lunar Strain is indeed a monument in the world of Melodic Death Metal, especially if you consider that 1994 is almost ten years from now. At that time, the band is still more a bunch of musicians than a band, and, by the way, it can be considered as a mix between Dark Tranquillity and In Flames, seeing that Mikael Stanne handled the vocals on Lunar Strain!

Nice debut. The session vocals give it a new flavour.

Man, I have not listened to this in ages (well, In Flames in general)... I remember liking it A LOT.
Savor what you feel and what you see
Things that may not seem important now
But may be tomorrow

Jesper is a real fucking genius! This is a masterpiece, just like The Jester Race and Whoracle! I just didn't give it a 10 because of the production.

Majority of the songs on this album indeed are average, but I find "Behind Space", "Lunar Strain", "In Flames" and "Upon An Oaken Throne" to be good rather than average.
