In Flames Producer Talks New Album 'Battles'

In Flames

(Metal Hammer) In Flames producer Howard Benson has praised the Swedish outfit's work ethic while they were in the studio. He was behind the desk for the band's upcoming 12th album Battles, which is set for release on November 11 via Eleven Seven Music.

And although he hadn't worked with them before, Benson reports they've become friends since he helped them on the follow-up to 2014's Siren Charms.

Benson says: "They spent a lot of time writing this record. We decided we were going to focus mostly on the songwriting, then the studio stuff would be pretty easy to do.

"They were really open-minded to putting the time in. In fact, every weekend when they weren't working, they were literally working the entire weekend, writing material. I've got to give the band a lot of credit for that."

Benson calls Bjorn Gelotte "an amazing guitar player" and reports he had fun watching him layering his guitar tracks in the studio, and adds: "I probably worked more with vocalist Anders Friden and I really got to understand his point of view, about what he was talking about.

"I liked the band so much, I actually went to Sweden to visit them a month ago." Watch the trailer here.
