In Flames, together with At The Gates and Dark Tranquillity, were the pioneers of the so-called melodic death metal style that developed in the early 1990's. The band went through a number of line up changes until 1999 with the release of Colony. The line up of Anders Fridén, Björn Gelotte, Daniel Svensson, Jesper Strömblad and Peter Iwers stayed constant until founding member Jesper Strömblad announced his departure from the band in early 2010 for personal reasons. In February 2011 it was announced that Niclas Engelin, who previously had played as a session guitarist, had joined the band. In 2015, long time drummer Daniel Svensson announced his departure from the group. He was replaced by Joe Rickard in 2016.
