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.
First off, founding members Tomi Göttlich and Uwe Lulis were both with Grave Digger before they started Rebellion, so even with one of the two gone it’s reasonable to expect similarities between the two bands. They do indeed have a similar style, but with a key difference:
Even though this BLOODRIDE are releasing their full length debut in 2011 and they play old-school trash, they aren’t a new band and the Finnish fellas that make up the line-up are all seasoned veterans of the Finnish thrash metal scene and have between them been involved with bands like LEGENDA, FAFF-BEY and SENTENCED…
