8-bit Metal Monday: SWEDES!

In Flames was the first Swedish melo-death band that i got into. They opened up for Slayer and owned that stage that night. Since then, I've bought all of their releases like religion and let the deluge open for other Swedish metal acts. (Arch Enemy, Meshuggah, At The Gates, ect.)

So it's with a little bit of sadness that I found out that founding guitarist Jesper Stromblad has exited the group. Poor dude's been having a lot of personal issues the past few years, as he's been in and out of rehab. This might of also been the reason that their last record was a pile of steaming spunk. Hey, if the guy feels he needs to break away to get better, and the music improves in the process, than so be it.

In memory of the man's career, here's a bleepy version of In Flame's Beyond Space.
