In Flames Unleash Performance-Based Video for ‘Paralyzed’
As they prepare to return to North America in support of their latest album Siren Charms, In Flames have released a video for "Paralyzed." It features the band performing the song in front of a raucous arena crowd.
Frontman Anders Friden says about "Paralyzed," ""First, I don't like describing this song, because when you are watching this or listening to the album, you'll be, 'Okay, that's what it is,' because I want it to mean something for you. But "Paralyzed," I think, it's something that we, as In Flames are known for these days. There's a groovy verse and a big big chorus. I think it sounds great. It's meant to be listened to loud."
In an interview with Loudwire, Friden talked about Siren Charms, saying, "It was a challenging album to record because we used half the time we did last time, but at the same time we went away to a very nice, legendary studio and it’s great to be part of that — being there, doing the album in Hansa Berlin."
Friden continues, "You know, I feel this is where we are today, and we always try to bring everything that we have done with us, but at the same time we want to take our songs further and wider and forward and we never look to the past and said, 'Oh this is wrong, now it should be this and or that.' I feel we have everything right now where we are, as people, you know? So, I guess it represents the five members right now in the life, where we are."
In Flames' North American headlining tour with Wovenwar and All That Remains kicks off Feb. 20 in Agoura Hills, Calif. A second leg with All That Remains and Periphery, that also includes numerous festivals, launches April 26.
