Swedish metallers IN FLAMES are currently at the band's own IF Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden working on the follow-up to last year's "Come Clarity". The group is receiving assistance during the vocal-recording sessions from producer Daniel Bergstrand, who previously produced the vocals on "Reroute To Remain", "Soundtrack To Your Escape" and "Come Clarity".
The band's studio video diary is online now with Episode 12. Watch it below.
IN FLAMES's new CD is tentatively scheduled for release in April 2008 via Nuclear Blast Records.
A new IN FLAMES track, entitled "Abnegation", is featured on the "Viva La Bands, Vol. 2" album, which was released on September 4 via Ferret Music and Filthy Note Records. The CD features exclusive tracks, written and recorded for the CD/DVD combo from some of Bam's favorite acts like CLUTCH, CKY, CHILDREN OF BODOM, VIKING SKULL and VAINS OF JENNA. A U.S.-exclusive track from SHINY TOY GUNS and music from other faves like GWAR, THE SOUNDS, DIMMU BORGIR and KILL HANNAH also appears on the killer compilation.
