In Flames play 'blinding' set at Download Festival In Flames Tickets

Anders Friden also spots a couple of condoms in the crowd

In Flames play 'blinding' set at Download Festival
In Flames rocked the Main Stage at Download this afternoon (June 15) pulling in a huge crowd for an ear-splitting performance.

The melodic death metal band powered through a host of tracks from their back catalogue including two tracks – ‘The Mirror’s Truth’ and ‘Disconnected’ - from their recent album ‘A Sense Of Purpose’.

Announcing his entrance early on, singer Anders Friden asked the crowd: “It is not raining today and we are going to be blinding so where are your sunglasses?”

Later he spotted a couple of inflated condoms floating in the air as he quipped: “What the fuck is that? I’m sorry my friend that is not the way they are supposed to go. You clearly misunderstood!”

He also promised the crowd, the band would be back in the UK for a tour in October before adding: “And you’re all invited motherfuckers.”

In Flames played:

'Cloud Connected'
'The Mirror’s Truth'
'Leeches'
'The Quiet Place'
'Transparent'
'Graveland'
'Only For The Weak'
'Disconnected'
'Take This Life'
'My Sweet Shadow
