Entinen In Flames kitaristi lyttää mahdollisuuden palata joskus takaisin yhtyeeseen

The ResistanceRuotsalaisen metallin jättiläisen In Flamesin entinen kitaristi on lytännyt hiljttan fanien kanssa tekemänsä Facebook -haastattelun aikana mahdollisuuden palata takaisin yhtyeeseen jonakin päivänä. Jesperin mukaan yhtye on ajautunut musiikillisesti niin eri suuntaan kuin miten mies itse yhtyeen näkee, että toteaa paluun yhtyeeseen olevan erittäin epätodennäköistä. Jesperin toinen yhtye siirtyi juuri hiljattain studioon nauhoittamaan seuraavaa EP:tään, joka tulee ilmestymään helmikuussa EAR Musicin kautta.

”No one never knows what the future brings, but the chances [of me rejoining ] are slim as they embarked on a different musical journey, they have a solid lineup and I’m on a totally different path in life right now,” Jesper wrote.

”I would never go into details why I quit, but there is always one official story and there is the other… Alcohol is a quite small part of it.

”That can also answer the next question: What do I think of their new stuff? Listen to [my new band] THE RESISTANCE and that explains a bit of it.

”We simply went [in] different directions.

”I need to stand behind and feel inspired with what I do 100%, I owe it to the fans and, obviously, the band.

”All respect to IN FLAMES and their new approach, but, for me, the band was a guitar/riff-based melodeath band. And it’s not anymore, but still amazing musicianship and I don’t think it’s wrong. But it’s not the vision I had when we started out. But still, all respect to them and the huge success; [it is] highly deserved!

”So please, I wish, change the comment from ’Come back to IN FLAMES’ to ’Welcome Niklas Engelin,’ who is one of the nicest talented guys, and the one who fill my shoes perfect, and brings back an amazing energy live and personally!

”So there you have it.

”I do not and will never compromise with my music. I’m on a new path together with the guys in THE RESISTANCE who made me want to play again and the good feeling of being a part of a band. Dedication, friendship, genuine passion for the music! Money, fame, Grammys, etc., doesn’t matter a crap if you you’re not comitted 100% to it.

”I also have a solo album coming up, a facebreaking EP and album with THE RESISTANCE and some other other excitiing projects.

”So… everyone is where they belong.. I’m in a band I love. IN FLAMES do their thing great… All good.”
