Colony songs Product Information
Colony album for sale by In Flames was released Nov 02, 2004 on the Nuclear Blast (USA) label. Like their countrymen Entombed, In Flames add the familiar influence (and sense of groove) of classic heavy metal to their extreme death metal sounds, as well as progressive instrumental interludes that help lend a feel of epic drama to their music. Colony's arrangements experiment with sound effects, melodic guitar leads, varied textures, and Hammond organ, adding more detail, contrast, and dramatic structure to the rush of their onslaught and making it a definite step forward for the group. ~ Steve Huey This is a Deluxe Edition of COLONY featuring bonus material. ...See Full Description

This album is the pure perfection. Strong, brilliant and melodic death metal with unique atmosphere. A must-have CD for any melodic death metal fan.

In my humble opinion this is In Flames' finest moment. Whoracle was a fantastic effort but overall was too slow and lacked any real speedy and thrashy songs. The song writing on Whoracle was amazing but the In Flames sound was perfected on Colony. Embody The invisible is a great energetic opener with a killer mid section showing off Bjorn and Jespers knack for writing excellent guitar passages. Ordinary Story is i guess the single with its rocky tempo and excelent guitar harmonies. Scorn is a fast thrasher with again great guitar work. This type of performance flows through the whole album and shines on songs such as Zombie Inc. Insipid 2000 and The New World. The only songs on here that arnt quiet upto standard are Coerced Coexistence and Resin, but these are only minor, minor let downs. This is the album that all the new metalcore bands wish they could create. This is In Flames finest moment and is definately spending some cash on.

||Strong, but not my favorite|
I think I may like this one the least of all the In Flames albums. There are some strong songs here for sure, but overall I don't think it was as musically diverse and creative as "Whoracle" or my favorite "Reroute to Remain." Still, you really can't go wrong with any In Flames album--they truly are the shining star of metalcore or gothencore.

||Don't expect a Jester/Whoracle continuation!|
Colony is a bit of departure from their four previous efforts. This release showcases a more musically mature band that relies more on diversity than constant dual guitar harmonies. This is not to say that those harmonies (which so clearly define the In Flames sound) are completely gone just more effective in their usage.
This is a very good CD and one that I appreciate more each time I hear it. In Flames has successfully evolved and matured to avoid becoming repetitious and boring.
Stand out tracks are: Embody the invisible, Colony, Zombie Inc., Coerced coexistence, and Insipid 2000.
