In Flames just announced that a new album “Foregone” release in early 2023. The record is due for exact release on February 10th, 2023. Sweden legends metal band shared a teaser from the upcoming album and lead vocal.
Before the new album announcement and earlier this year, In Flames released an LP that also features the two songs, “State Of Slow Decay” and “The Great Deceiver”.
The first track is with a visualizer video created by Oleg Rooz who used the most innovative AI technologies to produce visual effects.
Anders Fridén also talked about the upcoming In Flames album:
“Going into the ‘Foregone’ sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums. We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That’s the DNA of our music.
From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time. Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take breather.
In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.”
He explained the new era of In Flames:
“It’s crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album.
I feel that we’ve found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with ‘Foregone’. This is a new era of In Flames!”
The music video was created by Oleg Rooz and he talked:
Andres Friden‘s recommendations for the music video: “I thought that everything we’ve been through these past few years would be a reminder that life is precious, and that time is not on our side.”
“Unfortunately, I feel that we’ve woken up in a world that’s more hostile and bleak than ever before. The clock is ticking and the countdown has begun.”

Check the “Foregone Pt. 1” track lyrics:
“Find a way to bring me home
Darkness is washing over the sky
When all the trees have burned down
Where does the crow fly?
Take this as an offering
Empty promises are dead
All the rage and pain is gone
Soon all the rivers run red
All that matters is gone
There is nowhere else to go
No place for us to hide
Nothing above and nothing below
And the world has closed its eyes
Mother time draws her final breath
The innocent washed away
The condemned, the dance of death
It was easy to hide in the crowd
We acted numb to the warnings ahead
With everything that’s rotten
Even the marching ants have fled”
