In Flames announce new guitarist


In Flames have replaced founding guitarist Jesper Strömblad. Jesper announced his departure from the Swedish death metallers in February last year whilst overcoming an addiction to alcohol.

Replacing Jesper will be former Gardenian/Passenger/Engel guitarist, Niclas Engelin. The band are currently recording their 10th studio effort, Sounds Of A Playground Fading, set for release through Nuclear Blast late this year.

    I didn’t read this news last year, but that’s a shame. All the best to Jesper in his quest to be healthy, though. Let’s see what Niclas brings to the table.
