In Flames - Subterranean

1995 Wrong Again Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-02-22

Subterranean manages to accomplish what I believe is the true goal of an E.P., to act as an intermediary step between a major transition. True, In Flames was pretty much still a studio band here, using Henke Forss from Dawn on vocals, and both Daniel Erlandsson (Eucharist/Arch Enemy) and Anders Jivarp (Dark Tranquillity) on drums. Musically, it's a good continuation of what began on Lunar Strain, yet a lot of the more traditional elements are shed, retaining the melody and acoustic sections, yet not as "out of place" as they could seem on the debut. Some of the band's greatest tracks exist here as well, Stand Ablaze still a crowd favorite today. Only five tracks, but very important in understanding the progression of the Gothenburg movement. Recently reissued with LS on one CD as the original Wrong Again version is long out of print!
