Greatest In Flames Songs

The Top Ten

1 Only for the Weak

Amazing riff! Death metal but can be pleayed even on an acoustic guitar!

This just has that deep melodic death metal feeling in all it's metal guitar and bass notes. It makes you simply wanna get out there and play to the tune. (even if you're not good with guitars )

No Because This song is by favorite the favorite because In Flames have MANY GREAT songs but as far as Melodic metal this is it... I wanted to Vote for the chosen Pessimist... But it would not be Fair if we were talking about melodic death metal... This song owns PERIOD.

Darkest deepest song of the best melodic Death Metal band. - Cdric

WOW! That's the best In Flames song EVER! I love it! When I heard it for the first time, I said WTF?. Screw you Zombie Inc.! You cannot grasp the true form of Colony's attack! (Ace Ventura laughter)

Timeless Death Metal right here! The intro is unreal and the pacing in the song is brilliant!

Like Dude So True Shocked it was this High on the List at least some in flames fans have good taste

Simply amazing

Great melody and vocal. This song is the reason I begin to listen In Flames. I don't understand why it is out of top ten.

Has and always will be my personal favorite IF song. With heavy and terrific sounding riffage throughout the whole song followed by that perfect chorus, that you get both happy and pumped over, makes this melodic death metal song an absolute masterpiece!

The first song I heard from In flames in 2004. Love at first sound and the love has grown so big that no one can break us. My heart belongs to in flames

Song has everything; groove, beefy guitars, amazing melody, composion, drums. It sounds like an 80's masterpiece remastered in modern era

4 Crawl Through Knives

Absolutely BRUTAL scream in the final chorus which tops off an unbelievably awesome song

love it the feeling matches the name of the song and its very emotional for who is hearing it

HEAD BANGING TUNE Great vocals, great guitar, great bass, great drums, great song: enough said.

Pure badassery... - Ananya

5 Take This Life

One of the most epic songs of in flames, and most of the people get to know the band because of this song. In flames we trust!

Greatest metal song ever has it all screams solos and harmony.

Finally, someone with some taste. I was trying to remember that song.

Such a good song - waxythread13

6 My Sweet Shadow

The perfect example of how inflames are able to utilize the different aspects of there sound, from the melodic guitar work to anders vocals and in this utilization create something of godly harmony.

Without a doubt one of my favorites. It deserves to be in the top!

Beautiful melody with fluid transitions as the song progresses. Love the blend of varied vocals throughout and hard-hitting, punchy drum-work. Love it.

Bjorn's Harmony guitar is simply great

this song is the best for me. This song is really melodic

The only reason I didn't vote for this is because I think Behind Space pips it slightly. This song somehow manages to make death metal sound beautiful. It's such a shame this and other "classic" in flames songs never get played at their gigs any more..

Amazing songs, I can't stop listening it... The guitar is hypnotic, the voice is terrific, my favorite song.

Absolutely amazing, the only song I think can compare to this is Dark Tranquility's Lethe in terms of its combination of beauty and brutality - TheJesterhead

8 Cloud Connected

I think this is the best inflames song because every time I listen this song it takes me over the clouds and my reason to start listening inflames.

This is my favorite In Flames song. Heard this song somewhere and it got me hooked on these guys. Good song to start your day off too!

Ooh crap! Need a paper towel now. (me at 15 first time I heard this song! )

brutal.

9 Jotun

The fact that this is at #11 makes me want to set something on fire. Why is Take This Life above this again? I like that song too but Jotun destroys it and most other songs in this list.

By far their best work and probably the best Melodic Death Metal song ever written.

This is their best in my opinion. The intro, the chorus, beautiful.

This is the best metal song ever created on this earth

10 Come Clarity

This was the first ever In Flames song I ever heard, and it still gives me shivers every time I listen to it. This song is the reason I listen to In Flames, there is just some sort of truth in this song that I love. In Flames We Trust.

The song has a great intro and is sung with a choked voice done so well. The chorus has a simple guitar riff and a powerful message, obviously made with passion.

This song is an absolute masterpiece. I can relate to the lyrics on so many levels... It has driven me to tears before. The melody, the chorus, absolutely everything about it is beautiful.

This was the first song I've ever heard from Inflames this is personally my nr.1

The Contenders

11 The Quiet Place

This should definitely be higher (i mean WAY higher) up the list. It blends the BEST of vocals, headbang-able riffs and melody into a godlike song. This is what I show people when they ask me what makes melodic death metal different from other metal.

Really underrated... Amazing vocals, I'm rather surprised that it isn't higher up the list but then I found the order of the list rather surprising itself!

It Drives ME Crazy... one of my top 3 IF songs. the lyrics completely lies on melody. its like Anderson has psycho problems

This was the first song I got to know from In Flames, and its absolutely beautiful.
The intro is pure Goosebumps!

The song really sticks out from the rest of the album - TheMitchelator

The intro instantly grips you and takes your for a ride.

This song always makes me feel weird

13 Sounds of a Playground Fading

So underrated! This song combines great lyrics with an unbelievable good sound that catches you while the song start and as you continue listening the sound grows and a toughest sound takes place combining with the great voice and lyrics this band have

Amazing song guys! So much underrated! Deserves to be at least in the top 3.

So underrated undoubtedly :3

14 Clayman

WHY IS THIS @! 6? THIS IS THE BEST IN FLAMES SONG! THE RIFFS, THE VOCALS, THE CHORUS.. YOU GUYS NEED TO LISTEN TO MORE IN FLAMES! - vishaljagannath

Fourth best song on Clayman

This song is the best no doubt. So hard core.

Should be in the top 5 just my opinion

15 Artifacts of the Black Rain

It's ridiculous that no songs on the Jester Race and only one song on Whoracle are in the top 10. I'm a fan of their newer work as well and have enjoyed every single album they have released but this song seriously has the probably the catchiest and most memorable riffs and some of the deepest lyrics they ever wrote.

Heard 1000 times, still kicking like crazy

This is brutally amazing! This song is super underrated along with Morphing into Primal. Needs to be up there along with Only for the Weak!

This song is pretty amazing. It's very musically interesting to me while still being very poppy and catchy. Great melodies and guitar harmonies.

16 Ordinary Story

Nothing is more melody than this... A great in flames song and the piano work... Mind blowing... This is the number 1 and than comes the rest... Actually all in flames songs are great but this is 1

Deserves to at least be in the ranks of Only For The Weak, and Colony. Truly a beautiful song with very inspirational lyrics and themes. Far better than anything from Come Clarity.

This is the best one... even though I like more than 90% of in flames songs... but I would like 2 see ordinary story at 1st place... Great work of clean vocals and piano art.. in flace we trust

Greatness described

17 Deliver Us

Great song, it was at sound wave guys! I can not believe that it is so fare down on the list, it should at least be top 10. Come on guys only a few more votes and this amazing song will make it.

The chorus of this song is unbelievable. It just gives you goosebumps all over and that's when you know that you've found a great song. And this is definitely a great song. Probably my favorite out of all in flames songs.

Really amazing song! It contains epic screams and a truly beautiful chorus! Its really catchy and makes me happy every time I hear this song! :D

Great hook and the rest of the song delivers up. If someone is new to In Flames this is definitely one of the songs to let them listen to.

This song is a beauty. I don't know which part is the bridge and which part is the chorus and it doesn't matter because both are so strong. Add in a rocking' guitar solo that comes in two phases and you've got a metal classic.

Exceptional guitar work, the bridge and chorus rhythm and lead guitars melt together so well and the overall song is highly melodic. The lyrical concept is thought provoking, and the song has an epic clean tone guitar solo. Personally, this is the best song on Colony and my favourite In Flames track.

I can't believe this is at 47! In my opinion the guitar solo is the best in the In Flames repertoire, which is certainly saying something! The rest of song is also brilliant, I think the best on the Colony album. Should definitely be higher. - louiscurlydunham

I had been lisening to In Flames for a year or so before I first heard this song. But wow. This is the best song the band have ever produced. Everything about is so damn good. The power and rhythm is out of this world and it has so many amazing parts to it. I mean, this is not a ordinary song. It is built in such a cool way with the verses, bridges and the small sticks. Man I am in love with this one, In Flames we trust

19 Dead End

The female vocals and Anders' screams make a wonderful composition on this song :o

The combo is epic, not like to old stuff but certainly great

20 Pinball Map

I think this should be on the top ten list...great riffs and great lyrics...it deserves at least #5

Absolutely ridiculous song. The intro explodes in your face instantly, the fast pace, the breakdown, everything. Should be top 10.

My absolute favorite song from In flames! Right before Trigger and Crawling Through Knifes
