In Flames’ “Through Oblivion” Gets the Video Treatment
It’s clear that In Flames aren’t trying to be the band they were ten or even fifteen years ago, and I guess that’s commendable: better to move forward than to re-hash the past. Still, it’s incredibly hard for us longtime fans to look on and watch what the band is doing these days. I guess I should just accept that one of my favorite metal bands of all time is no longer the one I first got into and move on.
So here’s their new video for the song “Through Oblivion,” which was released back in June. Patric Ullaeus, who’s directed videos for pretty much every big metal band ever, helmed this clip, and it looks appropriately pretty and epic like all of his stuff does (even if I can’t quite follow the plot first time through). And then there’s the song, which SOUNDS vaguely like In Flames yet… wait, no, we just discussed this, I’ll shut up now.
