Customer Review

on April 24, 2004
At this point in their career, the Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy was faced with a tough decision on how to make this record. Do they continue with their standard brutal, heavy sound or do they try something different? In this case, Hypocrisy decided to go with the second route and drastically soften their music. Don't get me wrong, their music is still heavier than any mainsteam band, but it's softer than the band's previous albums.
This decision has it's pros and cons. On the negative side, "Catch 22" angered most of Hypocrisy's loyal fanbase (and when you're an underground band like this, your loyal fanbase is pretty much the only thing you have). On the bright side, this new sound was sure to get the band some mainstream attention, which would lead to newer fans, right? Wrong. It seems like their plan backfired because I've never heard Hypocrisy's music played on any type of media outlet.
While most of the Hypocrisy loyalists are quick to give this album a bad rating, it really isn't that bad. Each song was great in it's own way, with the only skipper being "Seeds of the Chosen One" (which was too generic and boring for my tastes). If you're someone that enjoys Scandinavian or Death metal, you'll probably enjoy this album.
