This year, metal fans and “Jesterheads” around the world are celebrating Swedish metal powerhouse In Flames’ groundbreaking 2000 record Clayman. The two-decade milestone is commemorated with the release of Clayman (20th Anniversary Edition), which has been completely remastered and includes four re-recorded tracks and a new instrumental, all available from Nuclear Blast.
Commenting on the milestone, vocalist Anders Fridén says:
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, 20 years of Clayman wouldn’t be possible or as meaningful without the support of Jesterheads throughout our career. We hope you enjoy the work we put into this re-release to commemorate how badass this experience with you has been. Thank you.”
Over the past months In Flames has rolled out a series of videos exploring the origins, influences and impact the record has had on the metal scene, diving deep into one of the decade’s most enshrined heavy albums. They’ve also revealed a handful of newly re-recorded songs from the record, including the track ‘Only For The Weak’, accompanied by a new video for the song which takes you through the evolution of In Flames’ career via live shows since the song’s initial release.
