The Top Ten

1 Only for the Weak

This is the best song. Vocal and every instruments phenomenal. This is the deep melo death feeling. - shohag8000

Amazing story the song is telling and just a sick track

epic song

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

2 Colony

Colony (the album) was In Flames's peak, their Everest, before things started going downhill. This track has remained my favorite from them for 20 years. Glad to see lots of people voted it too.

Best in flames song just ordinary story gets close.

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!

3 Trigger

Listen to what's going on BEHIND the vocal melody in the chorus. Such an amazing and rare chord progression to hear in In Flames let alone metal. Gets me so pumped.

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

The best Riffs

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..

Need to be number one!

5 Crawl Through Knives

In flaames, we'll reach heaven tonight...

IT'S IN MY AAS!

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

Just pure energy.

6 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.

This song speaks to me in a way of me living through it as a kid great lyrics great song

7 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.

Only for the weak does not deserve to be at the top spot. Suburban Me, form the same album as only for the weak, needs to be voted up too.

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.

On of the best!

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! )

The intro and the solo is the best among all the in flames tracks.

My Number One! Guitar riffs are insane in this song!

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

The Contenders

11 Artifacts of the Black Rain

Jester Race is In Flames Magnum Opus, and still no songs from this album in the top 10?
For me, this is the best song In Flames ever recorded, amazing riffs, great lyrics, fantastic songwriting!

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!

12 Ordinary Story

Far from ordinary.

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

13 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

13?! You people are deaf. Listen the music. It gets in your soul with just the right mix of angry - danielnemirovsky

14 Clayman

So powerful!

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.

15 Come Clarity

Great song

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.

God tier song

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.

Way too many post Clayman songs near the top. - wizardlarry

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

17 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

18 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

19 Suburban Me

Ever listened to thi song? There is no better IF song.

Great, underrated IF song

One of the best!

20 Where the Dead Ships Dwell

Definitely my favorite IF song, really melodic and brings out their true potential. In flames we trust!

Deserves No. 1... Best Song of All ll time... M/

How come this song no. 33... It deseves No. 1... Best song of all time I guess

Are you sure people know how to vote on this site as this should be much higher? Along other great songs that sits below top 10...

21 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.

22 December Flower

#21 what? This is clearly the most powerful song and has got the best solo ever. It deserves to be in TOP 10!

This whole list is garbage so far laugh out loud. Make no mistake, this is their best song. Colony and zombies inc follow it and so does the jester race.

Comments about the solo in this song are correct. Best solo, one of the best guitar solos in melodic metal history, hands down.

There's no other In Flames song with a solo as good as this one.

23 The Jester Race

Is this a joke? Seriously when I started listening this band this song was my favourite and its still in top 5 songs in my opinion really soft beginning getting harder and then chorus takes you to brutal joy level..

Jester Race album is by far their best album and this song lands in the top three tracks for me from that album. Good song, deserves to be in the top 15 at least. - Mjankner

This song is pretty underrated, I think. Like most of the Jester Race album, this title track is really good.

To be honest I'm proud of this poll. There isn't all these idiots who are like "in flames old songs are the only good in flames, the real in flames! " BS your full of crap and your stuck in the past. Open your self to the new music! It's a great new style!

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

Well, well, well... what do we have here? This song needs to go up right now! - Dvz

Intro is amazing. Amazing lyrics and kick ass song!

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

25 Embody the Invisible

Amazing guitar, good melody, great lyrics, it might not be the best song but it's up there! I do love the bass as well as the drums it's a great song!

The song provides me with extreme energy!

Love the guitar riff.

My second favorite In Flames song, after Trigger. Amazing guitar and great melody

26 Dead Eternity

Not just their best song, it is the best song

Philosophical dark lyrics that will re-define life for you. Amazing melodic guitars. Heaviest In Flames song.

The intro section to this song has some of the most emotional and powerful compositions I have ever heard, especcially those beautiful harmonies. It basically defines what in flames used to be.

Like someone below me said, the intro to this song is just beautiful. by far my personal favourite song, best song in my opinion on the Jester Race album. I would not rate the best song all round but extremley underrated.

27 Delight and Angers

So many emotions in this song... rage, despair, agony, hope. Embodies the best fusion of In Flames thrash wickedness and ballad wizardry. Lyrics speak to me. "This used to be my own world... but now I've lost control. Please heal me." In Flames is rescuing tortured souls with this masterpiece of a song.

My personal number one. Trigger is the second song I prefer. I think this song is underrated as hell - julianclaussen

I completely agree this is definitely the best song. I also really like Take This Life but this is an easy number one for me!

This song has great contrast in the ups and downs and the lyrics are just amazing. My favorite is, "thought I was unbreakable but this is killing me". Just let that sink in for a minute.

28 Versus Terminus

A perfect song the intro is just in your face and I never get tired of the chorus and verses. The whole song is amazing easily one of their most underrated songs.

From the hard ass verses to the epic melodic chorus this song deserves to be number 1!

29 Jester Script Transfigured

Their number 1 song by a MILE.

Well, one of the most underrated metal song ever, actually not only a metal song, it goes beyond any genre, absolutely magic, who ever listened to it will never stop listening.

Can´┐Ż't understand this one is at 54, I know quite a many In Flames fans who say this song is their number 1.

So underrated, the middle guitar section is heartstopping

30 Coerced Coexistence

Unbelievable low ranking for this song. My favourite overall from In Flames

31 Ropes

Easily one of the best songs of in flames. And that opening riff is so underrated. This track deserves to be in the top 5.

This is an insult to death metal! Seriously! Listen to this song and ask yourself, WHY DIDN'T I VOTE FOR THIS SONG?!. This song should definitely be no. 2 after Only for the Weak

Since I am not a real hardcore melo-death-metal fan, I like the combination between clear vocals and screaming-singing-something

It is blasphemy that this song is so low. It is on the same level as Only for the Weak!

32 Dialogue with the Stars

One of the best instrumentals I have ever heard. I sometimes use this awesome melody in my improvisation

Great melody! One of the things you hear and it "sticks" to your mind.

On of the the best metal instrumentals out there!

33 Enter Tragedy

One of my absolute favorite In Flames songs. Way too underrated.come on, the emotion in the simple line "Enter tragedy, SLASH MY SOUL" is completely epic! - SagaRex108

This song is really amazing. Its place would have to be at least top 15.

34 Lord Hypnos

This is definitely one of the more underrated on Jester Race. It's a little weird but the riffs are pretty solid.

35 Evil in a Closet

One of my favorite songs. Its power arc is just unmatched!

Best ballad I've ever heard. I think I cried when heard the solo for the first time

Love this song, great fry n screaming, melodic riffs, nice level of beats, awesome track...

My favorite song of all time...this is beautiful in every way.

36 Reflect the Storm

This should be top 10, period.

Many bullets penetrate me!

Awesome rift, brutal screaming, and very melodic.

This should be in the top ten no doubt.

37 I'm the Highway

Perfect song with powerful riffs! In flames has some of the greatest music I've ever heard!

Riff, lyric of this song = BEST SONG EVER

Best achord ever I will never forget it

38 Free Fall

Similar feel to "Only For the Weak" and almost as good. Maybe if this were released first it would be ranked a lot higher.

I can't believe that it has so low position on the list. The song is amazing, it should be in the first 5.

I would not consider this my number 1 by them but definitely close to it. Such a great but underrated song.

I can't stop listening to this song right now. Let's bump this up considerably.

39 Fear is the Weakness

You guys suck if you're not voting this, listen to this song... IT has TO be IN the TOP 10!
1. Take this life
2. Only for the weak
3. Deliver us
4. Fear is the weakness
5. Alias

Amazing song that really needs to be higher up in the list its to catchy to not be! Everything is good about this song and it just saddens me that people has not noticed how good this song is, but its very difficult for everyone to like the same songs since in flames has made sooo many good songs. In Flames We Trust!

Pure awesomeness in the guitars. And the chorus is amazing

Reminds me of RAMfest! First time I ever saw a metal band like In Flames! Now when I play it all the great memories come flooding back

Their only good song.

43 Dial 595-Escape

Inflames is an unreal band and this song is their greatest

I actually like this. - Flav

44 Liberation

Rather calm and awesome song.

Best song SoaPF

45 The Mirror's Truth

Each chorus and riff just do something for me. Not my #1 song from them, but easily in my top ten.

The riff, the sound, the uplifting beat...why isn't this with the top 10?

Incredibly beautiful song. It might not have signiture solo but damn... it has one of their best choruses and overall sounds.

46 Behind Space

Favourite IF song along with moonshield and stand ablaze.

This might be my top in flames song. So many riffs strung together into an awesome, heavy masterpiece.

Heres a fact. After Lunar Strain and Subterranean, In Flames went downhill.

Laugh out loud how is this #116, seriously all you numbnuts have no idea and probably started liking In Flames when they became more pop...
