Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, the melodic death/alternative band In Flames has released ten albums and one DVD at regular intervals. The band has sold 2 million worldwide, and was intended as a side project to "Ceremonial Oath" to work in a more melodic genre. The first two albums of '93 and '94, Lunar Strain and Subterranean were both made with imported vocalists. The '97 release of Whoracle coincided with a European Tour. The fourth album, Colony, was released in '99.
Album releases from 2000 to 2005 included Clayman, Reroute to Remain, Soundtrack to Your Escape and the self-produced Come Clarity. In Flames signed with Century Media Records in 2011 and toured Europe extensively.
