In Flames Unveil Haunting Video for Single ‘Where the Dead Ships Dwell’
The Swedish metallers of In Flames have released a brand new video for their single ‘Where the Dead Ships Dwell’ off of their tenth studio album ‘Sounds of a Playground Fading.’
With an eerie montage of images, the video looks like clips from an independent horror film. The hauntingly beautiful video is directed by Patric Ullaeus. The grotesque clips are undercut with stunning nature and landscape shots.
The Swedes are set to release a special release of the single ‘Where the Dead Ships Dwell’ on Nov. 15. This special edition will include diverse remixes of the song with some help from a wide variety of artists. The track’s remixes will get some help from vocalist of the black metal band Dawn of Ashed, German rapper Casper as well as percussion and bass extraordinaires The Qemists and Kristof Bathory.
According to Noisecreep.com, In Flames frontman Anders Fridén comments on the collaborations by saying "The songs have already been made and the originals are as good as they can be, but what if I give them to an artist from a whole different genre, what would be there take on it?"
Fridén continues, “I love collaborations like this and all the artists we worked with have done an awesome job. It's not meant to be taken dead serious and it's not how In Flames is gonna sound next, but I love it and I hope you'll enjoy a twist to the formula."
