Just over one year ago, In Flames released their 13th album, I, The Mask. Now, fans can hear the record in an entirely new way as the Swedish group has released an arcade/retro video game styled version of their latest effort.

The style, known as chiptune, transforms the melodic, crunching metal of In Flames into a cheery, electronic affair and is the ideal background music if you've got a night or weekend of old school gaming on the horizon. It especially highlights the crux of the band's sound, which has always been melody. Between the hyper-melodic guitar passages and the catchy, memorable vocal passages from Anders Fridén, this is irresistibly fun.

Listen below.

While this was a nice surprise, we don't expect any of these versions of the I, The Mask songs to make their way onstage, but maybe they'll be used as an intro track beforehand. You can catch In Flames on tour this summer and in the fall in North America as part of the massive Megadeth and Lamb of God co-headlining tour alongside Trivium. See all those dates further below.

I, The Mask was released in March of 2019 and marked the first studio appearances from bassist Bryce Paul and drummer Tanner Wayne. Meanwhile, former Megadeth and current Act of Defiance axeman Chris Broderick has been performing with the group as a live rhythm guitarist since last year.
