Top 10 Best In Flames Songs

The Top Ten
1 Only for the Weak

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.

Its just a masterpiece. Everything about it, how the music flows so nicely with the vocals and how its one of those songs no matter how many times you play it, you never grow tired of it. It gives you goosebumps. Probably not only the best in flames song, but one of the top metal songs ever made

If you put the song on headphones, and you close your eyes during the bridges, you feel the song surrounding you, it's amazing! The riff is just spectacular... To me this song is the top of the top when it comes to In Flames.

This a melodious over load of metal!

That catchy composition played during the intro and the chorus is mesmerizing! The meaning behind the song is insane! This is and will for sure always be in flames' best song!

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.

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

Greatest in flames song of all time with the riff and drum beat that makes you feel like you've just blown 5 lines of columbian.

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

3 Trigger

What can I say, first time I heard the song I was thinking generic IF song, and then the absolute killer chorus kicks in! Hard to choose a favourite, but this is probably it! Unbelievably great song!

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.

Excellent lyrics. Cool melodies. Perfect beat. This is what In Flames is all about, hope their new albums were as good as the old ones though.

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.

4 Crawl Through Knives

first off, I don't get whats up with "take this life" it sucks, I'd rater listen to the battles album on repeat for a week rather than listen to this song three times. oh, before I forget this song needs no introduction by the way if you have not listened to this song, you should.

This song is so good! How was it not a single!? It seems to be a lot of people's favorite.

Awesome lyrics... " If you could be the things I need I will crawl through knives an inch per tear "

Inflames are my favourite band and this song is my favourite.

5 Moonshield

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..

What?! How come this isn't number one?! Damn, I loved this song ever since I was a kid, at least needs to be in the top ten!

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

My personnal favorite 100% pure Jesper gems. This album is amazing but moonsheild is still my favorite In Flames song.

6 Take This Life

I had just started being a fan of In Flames, my brother noticed that and put this song in car and ever since I've been in love with this banger!

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!

One of the first In Flames songs I fell in love with, so harsh and such a great chorus.

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

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.

This song is tied with Only for the Weak, Ordinary Story and Reflect the Storm. All epics!

8 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.

Can't believe this is at #8. Should be much, much higher up.

9 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!

By far their best song! If you're looking for something to include in your playlist while working out...this is it!

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

10 Zombie Inc.

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

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.

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.

The Contenders
11 The Quiet Place

I like the album but my favorite song on the album Evil in a Closet, anyway I've heard this song so much I've memorized the lyrics.

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.

1. The Quiet Place
2. Only for the Weak
3. Crawl Through Knives
4. Take This Life
5. Fear is the Weakness
6. Trigger
7. Delight and Angers
8. The Mirror's Truth
9. Deliver Us
10. Come Clarity

By the way: Scream should be in top 25

How did this get so low?
This should be at least third or second best song of in flames.
I think before people vote they should actually listen to the other songs.

12 Deliver Us

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.

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.

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.

My sister and mother who listen to artists like Selena Gomez and One Direction loved this song. It's so catchy and beautiful.

13 Clayman

Cone on that Chorus:
How come it's possible
I wish there was a way
I feel so invincible
I'm the sculpture made of clay!
And then perfectly screamed...

The best track on Clayman; I totally get why they decided to name the album after it.

Currently one of my favorites.
Chorus amazing

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

14 Ordinary Story

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.

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

This is the pinnacle of In Flames. It is so absolutely heavy but yet still so catchy and melodic.

My personal favourite off their "Colony" album. Embody the Invisible is also great!

15 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!

The best riffs and melody in their discography. I wish it had a solo like in December Flower though. All the other albums are good, but nowhere near this. To bad the newer emo-ish songs are first in the list.

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

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!

16 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.

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.

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.

In Flames we trust. This is one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. And this must be number one. Lyrics, riff and vocal is amazing.

17 Pinball Map

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

Way too many post Clayman songs near the top.

18 Sounds of a Playground Fading

This is the song, that got me into in flames this song deserves to be number 1, the vocals, chorus, verses, and even the guitar solo everything amazing.

Bought this album after only hearing Scorn, and I loved this song from the first play.

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

19 Dead End

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

20 Suburban Me

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

One of the best!

21 Where the Dead Ships Dwell

Highly powerful vocals, insane guitar riffs super melodic and harmonic. it has to be at least top 3, together with The Mirror's Truth and Only for the Weak.

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...

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

Really hard to pick one at #1, but Dead Ships, Reflect and Jotun are probably tops for me.

22 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..

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!

I don't really like those InFlames songs that most people like, that much.
Here's my top 5 list
1, The Jester Race
2, Square Nothing
3, Behind Space
4, Moonshield
5, Ordinary Story
I don't like Whoracle at all, and all the albums after Clayman.

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.

23 I Am Above

Best song in years by this band. I know, I know...hit and all that. But listen, it's a graceful song with a powerful message...that doesn't relinquish the melodic death that In Flames is.

This deserves so much praise
It is the feeling that this song is waiting for.

24 Coerced Coexistence

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

25 Dead Eternity

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.

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