When a beer and water station is being set up on stage right, you know this going to be a lively show. Bassist, Peter Iwers, and guitarist, Niclas Engelin, visited their beer and water station between every song downing at least 3 beers apiece. Water may have been consumed as well, but who needs water when you can have beer! Vocalist Anders Friden even gave the audience a quick guide to which beers not to drink because “life is too short to drink shitty beer.” Once again, In Flames gave an awe-inspiring performance as they slaughtered fans with their hit single, “Paralyzed,” off their latest album Siren Charms. You can always count on In Flames to blend a perfect mixture of brand new songs with older ones that fans know and love. Joining In Flames on their headlining “Charming America” tour were well-known rockers All That Remains and Wovenwar. Santa Cruz, CA will never be the same after the epicness that occurred at The Catalyst on February 27th, 2015!
