Enemy Unbound, available everywhere September 14, 2010

In other news; original drummer and one of the founding members of THE ABSENCE, Jeramie Kling, has rejoined the band. Jeramie Kling and THE ABSENCE parted ways after a completing a heavy touring schedule for the band's first release From Your Grave. Guitarist Patrick Pintavalle comments; "we're so glad to have Jeramie back in the band. It feels right again." Vocalist Jamie Stewart adds; "in spite of everything that's been said and done, I'm glad to have my brother back. I look forward to having our collective magic restored."

Jeramie had this to say about once again stepping behind the kit for the band that has been called Testament for the 21st Century. "It's great to be back, I missed all my old friends. I can't wait to play the new songs on tour; they are going to blow the roof off. I missed the road and I can't wait to see all our fans out on tour. I am so pumped; it's just great to back."

Enemy Unbound was once again recorded at the famed, Erik Rutan-owned, Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, FL in November 2009 with Brian Elliott engineering and Peter Joseph and Patrick Pintavalle producing the album. Going along with the saying 'if it's not broke, don't fix it,' the band went to Sweden's Jonas Kjellgren (Scar Symmetry, Carnal Forge) of Black Lounge Studios who handled both mixing and mastering on Enemy Unbound. Guest musicians on the album include Tom Englund of Evergrey and Andy Wood.

WOW I can't believe they let the original drummer join back in. I think he's great, but what he did to them that got him kicked out was WRONG. He stole their van with all their equipment in it and changed their myspace password while commenting against the band. Really immature...

Funny thing about this is that I'm not an In Flames fan at all.

Well, I'm not liking the new album as much. It's not as aggressive and seems simpler than their last. Still haven't listened to In Flames and prolly won't ever.

I figured some here might appreciate the pink zebra Suhr in the vid at least.

Yeah, I anticipated the hell out of this album, but feel disappointed by it. "Riders of the plague" is an absolute masterpiece that should be held up as a standard by which Melodeath is defined... But the new album is just kinda boring :(
