In Flames, ‘Siren Charms’ – Behind-The-Scenes Preview [Exclusive]
The time is almost upon us as In Flames prepare to release their 11th studio album, ‘Siren Charms.’ The band has teamed with Loudwire to exclusively provide you with this video giving you some insight into the creation of the disc.
As seen in the clip above, the band was over the moon at having the chance to record in Berlin’s famous Hansa Studios, where everyone from David Bowie to Depeche Mode has recorded. Guitarist Niclas Engelin says in the video, “Hansa Studios was like 100 meters from The Wall, where The Wall was. You could feel the vibe from it — a little bit dark era vibe and I think that was something that we brought into the actual recording as well.”
This marks the first time the band has recoded outside of Scandinavia and while it did provide some changes, frontman Anders Friden is quick to point out it’s still an In Flames album.
“With every new album we try to incorporate some new elements and take it to a slightly new direction, but it’s still the same In Flames you’ve been hearing on all the albums,” says Friden. “We have the same mentality at least even if we don’t sound the same as we were in our twenties.”
