  1. Subterranean

    Subterranean is an MCD released by the Swedish melodic death metal band In Flames on 15 June 1995. It was remastered and re-released in 2003 by Regain Records. "Dead Eternity" is featured on The Jester Race, with Anders Fridén as singer. "The Inborn Lifeless" also appears on The Jester Race, but with a different name and lyrics, and with an alternate ending and slightly different solo. Although Daniel Erlandsson is pictured with the band through certain parts of the EP, he was still a guest, for he did not perform on the whole EP.
