In Flames may have introduced melodic Death Metal to the broader public, but their musical history consists of evolution and development. The Swedes don’t know the meaning of the word idleness - so, each album is packed with surprises. But this time, they had to cope with the exit of their guitarist and song writer Jesper Strömblad - he has since been replaced by their former temporary axe man Niclas Engelin (Passenger, Engel) who has helped the band frequently for a long time. "Sounds of a playground fading“ is super melodic, catchy, and features the most clean vocal parts by Andres Fridén in the band’s history so far. Basically, it’s exactly the album which everybody would have expected after "Reroute to remain“. The 13 Tracks are clever and sophisticated, brimming with the well-known In Fames trademarks and energy. A classy output - and with the first single "Deliver us“, the title track "Sounds of a playground fading“, and the anthemic "Where the dead ships dwell“, it contains some real gems. This is definitely the most melodic and catchiest opus by the Swedes - once again, a brilliant release!

Sounds of a Playground Fading has to be one of my all time favourite albums. Great album, some amazing songs on there.. Off the top of my head, Where the Dead Ships Dwell, Fear is the Weakness, Ropes... To be honest, I could just go through the entire list of songs, they've all got something good about them... Well worth buying... Still listening to it regularly 2 years on.
