it’s quite clear that there’s no lack of musicianship involved with Hypocrisy and it would be surprising if they did sound like any other band. That said, I do hope the band keeps going in this direction, because this sort of melodic atmospheric death metal is what they do best to me, and it made End of Disclosure end up as a big surprise. It’s a very good Hypocrisy album, probably on the level with The Final Chapter and Virus as some of their best material.
I would say the best way to describe them would be take some DANGER DANGER, mix it with a bit of PRETTY MAIDS and add an ever so slight helping of IRON MAIDEN. While this may sound like an exciting combination, this is definitely the work of a band in its early stages and there is a bit of work left to do if they are going to seriously try and push their way into the genre…
Eschewing their earlier metal core , screamo approach to music, the band are gradually morphing into a solid hard rock act
