Bassist Peter Iwers and guitarist Niclas Engelin of Swedish metallers IN FLAMES were interviewed by Gilles Lartigot of “Heavy Metal Food”, the Radio Metal column associating metal music with cooking. Check out the question-and-answer session below.
Iwers and IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte are partners in a restaurant in their hometown of Gothenburg with a focus on “quality and service.” Named 2112 as a tribute to RUSH‘s “2112” album, the establishment had its grand opening in April 2011.
2112 was recently nominated for the “Best Restaurant” award (Göteborgspriset) by the Swedish magazine Nöjesguiden Göteborg.
“We decided to open a place that was part restaurant with fine dining and part pub with a great selection and a good bar menu,” Iwers and Gelotte told GAFFA. “Both of us love to go out and drink and eat and that is exactly what you can do here. You can start in the restaurant and continue in the pub, or vice versa.”
2112 is located at Magasingatan 5 in Gothenburg.
