In Flames

Hard Rock and Blåkläder already have a history together from festivals like Sweden Rock, Getaway and Metaltown. Now, the connection is reinforced even further. Blåkläder starts a cooperation with the leading pioneers of the death metal genre, In Flames, and their hard-working stage crew. Blåkläder have signed a long term agreement with In Flames regarding workwear for the crew.

In Flames was formed in Gothenburg in 1990 and is considered one of the pioneers of the melodic death metal genre. The band has sold over 2.5 million records. The crew consists of a stage crew with different tasks, such as Tour Manager, Light technicians, Sound technicians, drivers and Pyro technicians. Every musician in In Flames also has their own technician that install their amplifiers, tunes their instruments and always are ready to change- and tune instruments and solve problems that can occur during a concert.
