In Flames was formed by Jesper Strömblad back in 1990. The band as it was at the time consisted of Jesper, Johan Larsson and Glenn Ljungström. A demo was recorded and soon after the band got a record deal and released "Lunar Strain" and it did not take long before the album was a classic in the fast growing Scandinavian death metal scene.

MARCH - INSENSE, BORN IN BEAUTIFUL FIRE

Insense

“First time I heard them, I wanted more.” These are the words of In Flames front man and Insense manager Anders Fridén, when talking about his exposure to Norwegian metal quartet Insense.

“They have this amazing ability to sound extreme yet poised, dark yet beautiful, hardcore yet soft, technical yet simplistic, all without falling into the “pathetic”-trap. They are an extreme metal band that’s comfortable to listen to. They’re difficult to categorize that way.”

“I was surprised. They don’t look like metal heads, and they certainly don’t act like metal heads. Still they’ve come up with some of the best material at least I’ve heard in a long time,” recalls Bergstrand. Together, they spent a month making the 10-track, 39-minute, hard-hitting metal monster “Born In Beautiful Fire.” “I’m really proud of the result. I’ve worked with bigger names, bigger budgets and bigger productions before, but this one stands out. It’s become a reference to me. A milestone – the album I got right.”

“It’s redundant to say “this is the best album we’ve ever made”,” says Hjelm. “Of course you’d say that. But this time, we’ve managed to focus our many influences into one, strong output. This album is much more of a whole than our previous efforts. I think those who liked us before will love us now. They’d be crazy not to!” And so, with a new label, with a new amazing album, Insense look back on their history of small steps, preparing for the big leap: world domination – born in beautiful fire.

JANUARY - EVERGREY, GLORIUS COLLISION

Evergrey Listeners will feel this positive energy throughout Glorious Collision, the band’s eighth studio album, which is due for release on 28 February 2011 (Germany: 25 February 2011; USA/Canada: 22 February 2011) on Steamhammer/SPV. A dynamic goody bag featuring the most diverse material ever released on an Evergrey album. “This may sound like a contradiction in view of our personnel situation, but Rikard and I have allowed more influences on Glorious Collision than ever before. Some elements on Glorious Collision are classic rock, based on a metal format, sometimes the tracks are quiet and haunting, sometimes wild, demanding and gripping.”

This diversity is also expressed in the instrumentation of this extremely dynamic studio production which presents the new band members Marcus Jidell (guitar), Hannes Van Dahl (drums) and Johan Niemann (bass). “It’s great to hear what a breath of fresh air Marcus, Johan and Hannes have brought into the band,” Englund enthuses. “Although the entire material, except for two songs to which Marcus contributed on the compositional side, had already been decided when we started recording, they all left their own, very personal mark on this album.” The great experience of Jidell and Niemann, who have worked with acts such as Royal Hunt and Therion, among others, and have now contributed lots of positive energy together with the 20-year-old drummer, Van Dahl, can be felt throughout the album.

JANUARY - YERSINIA, EFTER OSS SYNDAFLODEN

Dimmu Borgir YERSINIA is what you get when you let some Swedes, force-fed on indigenous black metal, death metal and crust, play metalcore. While staying true to some of the genres defining elements, YERSINIA ups the ante with more dissonance, more speed, and not a single moment of playing to the gallery. Lyrically, this is not another bland three-word band, but one that uses every single line to express something - in their native tongue. The use of the wordplay of 19th century Swedish poetry, this is definitely something that, combined with the extraordinary violent music, won't leave anyone unaffected.

YERSINIA started out in 2008 and released two EPs on their own before signing with Black Star Foundation for their debut album, EFTER OSS SYNDAFLODEN. The album was recorded and produced by Daniel Bergstrand and Rickard Sporrong, known for their work with, amongst others, In Flames, Meshuggah and Raised Fist, in DugOut Studios during the summer of 2010. The album shows off a band that can't be held back in any direction, and a band that completely explodes with creativity and emotion. In eleven songs YERSINIA makes eleven well-crafted and thoroughly intense statements not just about what music should sound like 2010, but also what true artistic expression truly is.

SEPTEMBER - RAISED FIST

"They can't keep us down! Still around! Adding something new to the sound!". So the battle cry goes up on Raised Fist´s stunning fifth full-length "Veil Of Ignorance". Having hit Uppsala, Sweden´s respected Studio Dug Out in April 2009, the band got to work with long time producer and friend Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah) on what is surely their finest effort to date. "We usually write 11 or 12 songs only," Hagman says. "We have more than planned this time because we could not take one song away from the record. Every song has its own spine and every song is my favourite one way or the other."
