Staff review by
Baz Anderson

It may come to some surprise just how prolific Hypocrisy have been over the years. For all the experience Peter Tägtgren has playing in bands and producing albums, it may however not come as a surprise that this latest instalment from the Swedish death metallers is another neatly packaged pillar of professionally performed modern metal.

  Wooow, brilliant my skype is Hypocrisy1 I love them, but I still like the old albums more the new songs are not like my favorite... but Hang Him High is killing one.

  It's a good album. But I forgot about it in a week or two. Hopefully it's just a Taste (of Extreme Divinity) of what's to come. Said it was for the fans. I hope it wasn't just meant as a quick gesture so he can get back to work on his other music

Rating: 7 It's a good album. In no way their best, but solid.

Can't wait to see them on tour in May, some of those songs are heavy as hell!

Rating: 9 Okay it's like they went back to their really kick ass albums and tweeked the guitars a bit differently (but it totally makes sense). I agree it's solid and honestly this is a damn good followup to Virus. Thank god it's not catch 22 again....

Hell, Yeh! And this one just fine, but nothing more.

Rating: 8 I thought this was a pretty solid album. A good mix of straight Death metal and a good amount of melodic songs on it. Also, the audio production on this album was done really well. The drums sound so crisp. One of the only things I didn't like about was maybe a few chorus riffs I wasn't really feeling. But overall, I thought it was a pretty killer album.

Rating: 6 This album and virus have no diversity, i love hypocrisy but what a let down, what happened to the diversity of albums like abducted, self titled, the arrival and catch22, wheres the epic ballads, the slow groove mosh songs, with a few fast brutal songs, the clean singing, the growls and screams, this is just typical death metal with no hooks, good albums if they weren't hypocrisy, c'mon pete bring back the diversity.

Rating: 9 Album is fucking amazing. Hang Him High has to be one of the best songs on this album. Highly recommend to any death metal fans

Rating: 9 Brilliant, brilliant. I love this album.

  I was surprised how "death metal" this album really was. It really didn't have those slow, epic, keyboard laden, thumping Hypocrisy tracks, but I don't think that took away from it honestly! Lets see how the new album turns out, I have a feeling it will return to the more accessible Hypocrisy we've come to know.
