Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

Melodic Death Metal band In Flames are considered as the founders of the so-called "Gothenburg Sound" along with Dark Tranquillity , opposed to the "Florida Sound" . In other words, this term was created to oppose two different kinds of Death Metal styles. With the album Colony, In Flames definitely shows us how to define again a new style of Death Metal: a full package of thrashy guitar melodies and both clean and death voices; and overall, a complete set of outstanding metal anthems.

Rating: 10 Yepp "Man Made God" should be with vocals imo. Great melody in that song.

Rating: 8 This album turned me on to In Flames

  I enjoy this album a lot and this genre is not even my thing; the music is concise, straightforward, no wankery, things are in balance (heaviness and melody).

Rating: 8 This newer version of Behind Space is awesome! I wish they would re-record Lunar Strain...

Just in case Fridén is reading this, I'll just comment... Do Not Re-Record Lunar Strain!

Hahahaha! They should re-record it with the old vocals, not the new vocals! Or else, it would be ruined!

Rating: 9 The title should be changed as the "Best of..."

Rating: 8 A nice album, nothing more to my ears... nice production..

Behind Space '99 and Ordinary Story are the best songs imo...

Rating: 10 A true masterpiece. To me everything is perfect here.
LeKiwi - 22.04.2015 at 06:39  
Rating: 8 Love the clean vocals in "Coerced Coexistence" and the catchy rhythm in "Behind Space '99".
TrueMetalJope - 07.09.2015 at 01:39  
Rating: 6 Average stuff, IMO these songs are just bad or average at best. The only good thing here is melodies of "Zombie Inc." and "Pallar Anders Visa". And BTW the original "Behind Space" is way better.

  Its so hard to decide which IF album is my favourite, but in the end I would probably go with this. Has some of their best melodies and the production gives it the necessary punch.
