Interview by Tarja Virmakari
Swedish metal icons IN FLAMES performed recently in Milan – Italy, and what could be a better chance to have a pleasant chat talking about the band’s latest album “Siren Charms” which came out on September 9, via Sony/RED. Tarja Virmakari sat down on the stairs with the band’s guitarist Niclas Engelin (IN FLAMES, DRÖMRIKET, PASSENGER, GARDENIAN), in between the football and dinner time. The topics were mostly of Siren Charms, but as ENGEL‘s new album is released today (November 26th, via GAIN Production), Tarja couldn’t resist and ask also about Raven Kings. To know more about what Niclas told Tarja, join the conversation below.
