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.

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

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!

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....

"Thank god it's not catch 22 again..."

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

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.

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.

Brilliant, brilliant. I love this album.
To their tombs the people are immured,
There is their gold, treasure and wealth,
The only condition is to ignore them,
Those who feed on corruption and weave death

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.

Can't be better
What goes by is life to be taken
The doom calls upon the forsaken

My favorite Hypocrisy record. I just can't get enough of it. No tomorrow is probably the saddest death metal song. Weed out the weak is insanely good. Sky Is Falling Down is just crazy enough to break your neck. Just a perfect album from start to finish

Still come back to this album quite often, one of the best from 2009 and one of Hypocrisys best IMO.

Nice album, Weed Out The Weak is the best song imo. Good work. 2005-2010 was so good for death metal...
