Last weekend, Sweden’s foremost metal legends tore down the stage at SLIPKNOT‘s German KNOTFEST edition with their world-renowned live show. Today, IN FLAMES continue to surprise their fans with a new offering of their mind-blowing skills: Gothenburg’s finest release a brand-new track titled ‘The Great Deceiver’ – a crushing piece of high-class modern metal, carving IN FLAMES‘ unique mark deep into the current scene’s foundations.
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.”
