Swedish/American metal act IN FLAMES have dropped the official music video for the new single “Meet Your Maker”

The track comes off IN FLAMES‘ upcoming fourteenth studio album, “Foregone“, which is set to drop on February 10 via Nuclear Blast. Like a raw nerve exposed, the song speaks of the desperation and frustration brought on by the chaotic dystopia of post-pandemic society. You can check it out below.

IN FLAMES frontman Anders Fridén states: “When we started to write for ‘Foregone‘, ‘Meet Your Maker‘ became the song that set the tone in terms of what we were aiming for sonically as well as thematically. You’ll see it’s everything you’ve come to expect from IN FLAMES and some. Enjoy and see you on the road in 2023!”

Foregone” features artwork designed by Blake Armstrong.

Upon the initial announcement of “Foregone” last September, Fridén said: “Going into the ‘Foregone‘ sessions, we wanted to make a record that was heavily guitar-driven, and that had a strong foundation between the bass and drums. We still approached our songwriting the same way, as we always have, as a juxtaposition between melody and aggression. That’s the DNA of our music. From the lyrical end of things, there was no shortage of inspiration to draw from, especially the concept of time.”

He continued: “Humanity as a whole was forced to slow down and take breather. In that break, many of us spent time evaluating and reprioritizing. Time is a constant, but what do we do with it and how we perceive it varies. Especially now looking at where the world seems to be headed faster than ever before.”

Anders added: “It’s crazy that after everything we are still here and on our fourteenth album. I feel that we’ve found a great balance between the past, the present and the future with ‘Foregone’. This is a new era of IN FLAMES!”
