In Flames - Release Athens

In Flames

In Flames are one of the most influential metal bands the last thirty years and helped establish the modern melodic death metal scene and the ensuing metalcore scenes of the early 2000s. With their unique guitar riffs and innovative song arrangements, the group progressed from underground phenomenon to prominent figures in metal who never stopped evolving and experiment.

Since forming in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1990 the legendary act is an example of what it means to stay true to your vision. From their debut, “Lunar Strain” (1994) until the most recent release “Foregone” (2023), In Flames keep trying new things and move forward despite the countless accolades they have already earned. Records like “The Jester Race” (1996), “Colony” (1999), “Clayman” (2000) and the gutsy “Reroute to Remain” (2002) are just a few examples of the great back catalogue, that affirm the group’s place at the top of European metal for such a long period of time.

In 30 years of nonstop production, In Flames have toured the planet countless times and have proven that they are an equally impressive live band. On Wednesday, June 7, this formidable force of the metal scene returns to Athens after a very long time, and together with Nightwish and Insomnium, they’ll kick off Release Athens 2023.
