In Flames - The Jester Race

1996 Wrong Again Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2010-02-22

This, is a masterpiece. One of the best melodic metal albums to be put out, ever. In Flames here have found their mark with a new vocalist and drummer/guitarist who helped arrange and write epic songs. Anders Frieden (from Dark Tranquillity) has a voice which complements the music perfectly. They tuned down the guitars for this album (to C, I believe) and this gives the whole album a thick foundation upon which the melody can be built. Every song on the album is strong, which allows it to flow from start to finish. This is high on the top ten list of 1996, and is definitely worth checking out. There's just something about the melodies here that is great. This may go on the list of personal faves of time. Buy this record.
