Vocalist Anders Fridén of Swedish metallers IN FLAMES was interviewed by Branimira Novsak of the “Metal Eye” show on Z1 TV when the band performed in Zagreb, Croatia on September 26, 2011. You can now watch the chat below.
IN FLAMES will release the “Where The Dead Ships Dwell” digital single later this month containing three completely different remixes. With versions by German rapper Casper, drum-and-bass act THE QEMISTS and Kristof Bathory, vocalist of the black metal band DAWN OF ASHES, there should be something everyone can enjoy.
“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?” said Anders Fridén. “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.”
The track listing for the single is as follows:
01. Where The Dead Ships Dwell
02. Where The Dead Ships Dwell (Casper Remix)
03. Where The Dead Ships Dwell (The Qemists Remix)
04. Where The Dead Ships Dwell (Kristof Bathory – Dawn of Ashes Remix) (iTunes-exclusive track)
IN FLAMES‘ tenth album, “Sounds Of A Playground Fading”, sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.
IN FLAMES‘ previous CD, “A Sense of Purpose” (Koch) opened with 20,000 units to land at No. 28. This was slightly less than the opening tally of “Come Clarity” (Ferret), which shifted just under 24,000 copies in February 2006 to enter the chart at position No. 58.
