In FlamesI, The Mask

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ Don’t be fooled by the album’s decidedly weak first minute: In Flames shred all over the place on this one. The band are no fools when it comes to delivering what their fans want, and "I, The Mask" is another in the unbroken line of the metal primacy of Gothenburg, may it never fade. At the same time, the band do take some chances on here; these are very successful tweaks, if not big swings.
