In celebration of Swedish metal powerhouse In Flames’ recent release of Clayman (20th Anniversary Edition), esteemed masters of metal Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage), Jordan Mancino (As I Lay Dying), Mike Schleibaum (Darkest Hour), Chris Broderick and Matt Heafy (Trivium) have come together in a new video to talk about the enduring legacy and influence of the band’s highly revered 2000 breakout record Clayman.
Out now, Clayman (20th Anniversary Edition) comes entirely remastered by Ted Jensen (Pantera, Deftones, Gojira) and features all-new artwork in a 16-page booklet, a brand-new instrumental medley plus four re-recorded versions of fan-favourites such as ‘Only For The Weak’ and ‘Pinball Map’. Re-recorded songs were produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Motörhead) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Rob Zombie). The new instrumental track “Themes and Variations in D-Minor” was recorded and mixed by Roberto Laghi at Topfloor Studios in Gothenburg. The record will be released digitally as well as on CD Digipak and a 2xLP coloured vinyl packaged in a deluxe trifold that includes an oversized booklet, 11 remastered tracks on a 12” record and 5 bonus tracks on a 10” record in a printed sleeve.
