In Flames releases surprise covers EP ‘Down, Wicked & No Good’

After posting teasers all week on social media, In Flames have surprised fans by releasing a four-track covers digital EP titled “Down, Wicked & No Good”.

To debut their cover of Depeche Mode’s 1997 hit single “It’s No Good,” the members of In Flames took over Depeche Mode’s Facebook page, releasing exclusive content and a new video for the song, which can now be seen below:

The covers collection also includes In Flames’ versions of Alice In Chains’ “Down In A Hole”, Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”, and a live bonus version of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt”. It sees the Swedish quintet expanding beyond metal to incorporate the group’s varied musical taste and expansive sonic range.

“We’ve been fans of DEPECHE MODE since we were as young as 10,” says IN FLAMES. “Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song — it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to pop, synths or rock and even though we are a metal band, DEPECHE MODE inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today.”
