In Flames release thrashing new track “The Great Deceiver”

Last weekend, Sweden’s foremost metal legends tore down the stage at Slipknot’s German Knotfest edition with their world-renowned live show. In Flames continue to surprise their fans with a new offering of their mindblowing 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.

Together with “The Great Deceiver”, In Flames announce their return to the European stages with an extensive tour in late 2022 supported by At The Gates, Imminence and Orbit Culture. All tour dates can be found below.

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.”

This August, In Flames gloriously return with their very own live show – following the huge success of the event’s debut at Borgholm’s castle in 2018, this year’s edition will be held within the walls of a former limestone quarry in Dalhalla on August 6th.
