The 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'.
“We’ve been fans of Depeche Mode since we were as young as 10. 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.”
