Who doesn't know In Flames, the world's best melodic death/heavy metal band. Well, if you do not already know them, their latest album will make you discover them at their best. Clayman, their latest opus, is a masterpiece. I consider it to be the best In Flames album to date, and it completes very well Colony, their previous album.
As In Flames has accustomed us, Clayman is very melodic. I also find it more violent than their previous albums. On the vocal side, Anders Fridén makes good use of several effects. He easily goes from clean to Death vocals. In fact, it's Anders' vocals that give In Flames their originality, coupled with Jesper Strömblad's powerful melodies. What more can I say, this is the best album of 2000. Buy it without any hesitation. Support those new, talented metal bands!
