Jesper Strömblad ex-In Flames, jamming with Sight of Emptiness in Costa Rica

  • Founder and former guitarist of In Flames and current member of the Resistance and Dimension Zero.
  • Jesper Strömblad and Sight of Emptiness got together to play the other day, and ended up jamming on some killer “old school” In Flames(Official) & Dimension Zero songs.

The band comments: “This is definitely a dream come true for us, because, since day one, Dimension Zero has been one of our major influences, as well as “old” In Flames. So, have the privilege and opportunity to jam and get to know the guy who wrote so many great songs, riffs and iconic albums is unbelievable. We had so much fun! What a great artist and down to earth person he is. Skål för fan!”
