Björn's sister is one of the singers for All Ends. Neither of them plan to play in the side project live due to In Flames' demanding schedule. He also played guitar on the track "Self Versus Self" by UK/Australian drum and bass act Pendulum, along with his bandmates Anders Fridén and Peter Iwers. Equipment Björn Gelotte uses a Gibson Les Paul Custom and a custom shop Les Paul, both with double EMG 85 active pickups. The custom shop les paul has a few changes to the stock model, such as similar inlay blocks as in the Les Paul supreme.
He uses a POD XT and other Line 6 equipment, Elixir custom strings, and Dunlop .88 MM Tortex picks. On the older In Flames records, both Björn and co-guitarist Jesper Strömblad tuned their guitars C,F,A#,D#,G,C. On the new records they use this same tuning with the lowest string dropped to A#, on some of the tracks.
