IN FLAMES announces 'Foregone' album, shares visualizer for 'Foregone Pt. 1'


Swedish/American metallers IN FLAMES will release their fourteenth studio album, “Foregone”, on February 10, 2023 via Nuclear Blast. The LP will feature the two songs IN FLAMES released earlier this year, “State Of Slow Decay” and “The Great Deceiver”. IN FLAMES has also shared the visualizer for “Foregone Pt. 1”. The clip was created by Oleg Rooz. The Ukrainian graphic designer used groundbreaking AI technology to create the visuals. As one of the first bands relying on AI for a music video, IN FLAMES remain on the cutting edge.

Watch the visualizer for “Foregone Pt. 1” below. 

IN FLAMES frontman Anders Fridén states: “Going into the ‘Foregone’ sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums. We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That’s the DNA of our music. From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time.”

He continues: “Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.”

Fridén concludes: “It’s crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album. I feel that we’ve found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with ‘Foregone’. This is a new era of IN FLAMES!”
