Bjorn Gelotte

Formed in Gottenburg, Sweden in 1990, In Flames, alongside At the Gates and Carcass, are the pioneers of melodic death metal. Think Iron Maiden meets Cannibal Corpse. To date they have released ten studio albums that have sold well in excess of two million copies worldwide. Known within the band as 'the riff maker', Bjorn Gelotte joined In Flames as a drummer in 1995. Then, when Glenn Ljungstrom quit the band a few years later, Bjorn took over his spot as guitarist a position he's held ever since. Bjorn is a diehard Marshall fan and continues to sport his iconic beard as he pens the riffs that drive In Flames onward.
