Sweden’s In Flames have begun the recording process of their new album. The band has arrived at Hansa Studios in Berlin to record the follow-up to the gold-selling “Sounds of a Playground Fading” from 2011. The recording of the band’s eleventh album will continue throughout the year, and in the spring of 2014, we will have the chance to hear the result of their hard work.
David Bowie, Depeche Mode and U2, among others, have all recorded albums in Hansa Studios. The house was built as early as in 1913 and the studio used to be called Hansa by the Wall because of its closeness to the Berlin wall.
The band’s singer Anders FridÃ©n says: “When I visited Hansa Studios earlier this year I got goose bumps. There is so much history both inside and surrounding the studio and I want to be a part of that. Magic has been created here and hopefully that will affect us.”
