This past weekend, Swedish metal legends IN FLAMES tore up the stage at KNOTFEST Germany with their world-renowned live show. Today, the band release a brand-new track titled ‘The Great Deceiver‘ – a crushing piece of high-class modern metal that reinforces IN FLAMES‘ unique mark deep in the foundations of the genre.
The band states:
“The Great Deceiver was born out of frustration, basically a reaction to false flags but since then it has grown to represent several meanings. There’s a line that says “Bend the truth to fit your opinion” and I feel that speaks a lot to the narrative happening online, between people, and nations etc. today. We are more a part now than ever before yet it’s easier to communicate than in any other time in history.”
Today, two international metal heavyweights celebrate an extension of their alliance: Swedish metal legends In Flames have re-signed with Nuclear Blast Records –
extending their partnership on a worldwide level. As one of the most influential metal bands of all time, the news foreshadows some exciting plans for the Gothenburg legends, soon to be rolled out.
After making a big impression with their debut single “Shadowminds” and the follow up single “Feel What I Believe”, The Halo Effect have announced their debut album, set for release on August 12th, and have released a third single and video for the album’s title track “Days Of The Lost”.
The band featuring guitar heroes & songwriting wizards Jesper Strömblad and Niclas Engelin (ex- IN FLAMES), singer Mikael Stanne (DARK TRANQUILITY), as well as former IN FLAMES members Peter Iwers and Daniel Svensson, present another masterclass in Swedish melodic death metal.Continue reading The Halo Effect announce debut album “Days Of The Lost” and reveal video for title track

The year of the corona-pandemic, when the world was forced into a standstill, five old friends finally put an old idea in motion. The result is a brand new band, THE HALO EFFECT, who recently inked a contract with Nuclear Blast.
The members of THE HALO EFFECT are not only masters of their domain, but also pioneers of the Gothenburg melodeath scene, who, at some point, have all been members of fellow Gothenburg icons IN FLAMES: Lead guitarists Niclas Engelin (ENGEL) and Jesper Strömblad (CYHRA), lead singer and lyricist Mikael Stanne (DARK TRANQUILLITY), bassist Peter Iwers, and drummer Daniel Svensson.
Today, the band are giving metal fans all over the world a taste of their sound with debut single ‘Shadowminds’, that comes together with a music video. Its brooding atmosphere, melodic riffs and harsh vocals provide a perfect example of what THE HALO EFFECT is about.
