Pressing play on a new In Flames album has been a difficult experience for a while now. Their more radio-friendly “third era” has been plagued with trope-laden lyrics and lethargic, toothless songwriting. Is I, the Mask any different?
While 'hyped' may be the wrong word, a lot of people were certainly excited for the release of The Goat – the debut album from British rockers Puppy.
