On their 1999 release ''Black Sails in the Sunset'', they supplemented their hardcore sound with {{Goth Rock}} influences. This trend would continue with their next two albums, ''The Art of Drowning'', which also brought in {{industrial}} elements, and ''Sing the Sorrow'', the latter album. adding some EmotiveHardcore elements into the mix and becoming AFI's breakthrough album and reaching #5 on the Billboard charts. Then Decemberunderground came around. While somewhat lighter in tone, it was a major success and produced some of AFI's most popular songs, such as "Prelude 12/21" and "Endlessly She Said".

''[[NewSoundAlbum Crash Love]]'' was stated to be a "straightforward rock record" by the band, with a focus on catchy, more upbeat songs. However, it [[BrokenBase caused some alarm]] due to percieved abandonment of their hardcore roots. Their most recent album ''Burials'' continues that merger of styles, featuring a dark, operatic feel to most of the songs.

AFI (A Fire Inside) are an American alternative rock band, formed in 1991. Originally formed as a {{Hardcore Punk}} revivalist band, they continued much in the same way for their first three albums: ''Answer That and Stay Fashionable'', ''Very Proud of Ya'', and ''Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes''. Then things started to take a different turn.

* OlderThanTheyLook: Davey and Jade both fit the bill. Davey has the general appearance and energy of a man in his late twenties-early thirties despite being 40, and Jade's haircut makes him look far younger than he actually is(Jade is the oldest in the band).
