Hypocrisy, "Virus" Hypocrisy
Virus
Nuclear Blast Records
2005
Since Hypocrisy released Abducted back in 1996 they’ve only made one bad album, Catch 22. Every other release during this nearly ten-year period has been at the very least, strong, if not masterful. With the band’s 2005 release, Virus, we see Hypocrisy only continuing to improve. Though the lineup is now four, two of which are new...

The Arrival

2003
Hypocrisy has been a frustrating band to like the last few years. After releasing the stunningly detailed "Hypocrisy" in 1999, the band switched gears and released two of their least musically interesting albums: "Into the Abyss" with its stripped down thrash, and "Catch-22", with it's infamously bouncy material that brought accusations of selling-out and other nonsense. Both albums were solid...

Hypocrisy, "Catch 22" Hypocrisy
Catch 22
Nuclear Blast Records
2002
Ok, first of all I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Hypocrisy to begins with, not that I dislike them, I just never got really into them. Catch 22 didn't change this at all. The first few songs on the album are decent, but this album resembles deathmetal about as much as KMFDM do. Come to...

10 Years of Chaos and Confusion
Nuclear Blast Records
2001
A greatest hits comp for Hypocrisy with the notable inclusion of re-recorded versions of several older songs [Penetralia, Osculum Obscenum and The Fourth Dimension for sure, but also possibly Apocalypse]. They cover all the important tracks and really show Hypocrisy in their best light. If you're unfamiliar with this brilliant band, this is a great place to start, and if...

10 Years of Chaos and Confusion
Nuclear Blast Records
2001
This Hypocrisy album doesn't make much sense to me. These guys have been making phenomenal discs for quite a while now, so what's the point of making a greatest hits disc since they can't even fit half of what they should on it? I, and I am sure most of you reading this, have almost...

Hypocrisy
Nuclear Blast Records
1998
Peter Tagtren has led Hypocrisy from a talented Tampa-inspired death outfit to one of the most impressive extreme metal bands on the planet. Written after Tagtren had vowed to break up the band [during The Final Chapter] and then had a change of heart after getting a good ego-stroke at the Milwaukee Metalfest, Hypocrisy stands as their most adventurous and...

Hypocrisy, "Inferior Devoties" Hypocrisy
Inferior Devoties
Nuclear Blast Records
1994
Recently downsized from five members to three, "Inferior Devoties" is a notable Hypocrisy release only because it was the first to feature the line-up that wrote and recorded the band's best efforts ("Abducted," "The Final Chapter," and "Hypocrisy"). Unfortunately, the four Hypocrisy originals included here were written and recorded by the same line-up that penned the forgettable "Penetralia" and "Osculum...
