In Flames at Stage AE on 05/14/2015


 

Pittsburgh welcomed Gothenburg, Sweden natives and alternative/melodic death band In Flames to the stage.

Their fifteen song set spanned sixteen years of the In Flames catalogue – no Lunar Strain, The Jester Race, or Whoracle this night. More than half of the set came from 2006s Come Clarity or later.

After some quick banter by Anders Fridén, who was spot on all night, In Flames opened up the show with their oldest song of the set, Colony’s, “Embody the Invisible.” The energy kept building as the night progressed. Bjӧrn Gelotte showed his mastery of his Les Paul. Niclas Engelin brought tons of energy to the stage with his wide-stanced guitar playing. Peter Iwers chugged through the set in a way to make Geddy Lee proud. Of course, Daniel Svensson provided a solid workman-like performance giving his Tama’s a thorough beating.

The set had something for everyone – for the head-nodding pre-teen donning his brand new In Flames shirt, the raven-haired girl in her mid-twenties that was slightly overdressed, but danced her way through the show, or the shirtless, gray-haired, middle-aged man giving his younger counterparts in the mosh pit a run for their money.

It’s hard to believe that Siren Charms is the bands eleventh studio album. With the amount of work In Flames puts in, they sound better than ever.
