This DVD will give you the full cover of HYPOCRISY – after you seen it, there is nothing more to add and ask.
The official birth of HYPOCRISY dates back to 1991, when the band got signed to Nuclear Blast and released their massive debut album “Penetralia”. “Osculum Obscenum” (1993) and “The Fourth Dimension” (1994) were the next milestones in crushing, extreme Death Metal and defined the band’s status as one of the most innovative and remarkable metal bands in Europe. Following the release of “Into The Abyss” (2000), HYPOCRISY put together a ‘best of’ album titled “10 Years Of Chaos And Confusion” (2001). The album featured a fan-elected track-list with all the hits of the last decade. 2002’s “Catch 22” defined a new dimension of sound for HYPOCRISY with progressive and rock influences and led HYPOCRISY into a modern era of more fashionable death metal. With “The Arrival” (2004) the sound experiments came to an end – and saw HYPOCRISY return to their roots. In 2005, an actual “Virus” was spread by them Swedes, the album almost foresaw the direction they kept continuing with “A Taste Of Extreme Divinity”. Brutal as fuck with lots of groove and fast as hell!
