Over the next week or so, arguably two of Sweden’s biggest metal exports will be releasing albums. However, you don’t have to wait that long to hear either of them. In Flames’ Siren Charms and The Haunted’s Exit Wounds are both streaming on Soundcloud in advance of their releases.
In Flames fans have gotten to hear a pair of songs from the forthcoming album, “Rusted Nail” and “Through Oblivion” have proven to be polarizing for fans, with some liking the more commercial direction of the band and others yearning for another Clayman, or at least a Come Clarity. Earlier today, the album debuted via Loudwire, so you can listen to it below and decide whether the whole album is indicative of its first two singles.
On The Haunted’s end, Exit Wounds was released today in America (it’s been out in Europe since last week). You’ve also gotten a chance to hear two songs from them even before today. The band’s eighth album features a handful of past members rejoining the lineup, and many are viewing it as a return to form. Revolver is streaming the album, but you can listen below, and if you like it, grab it here.
