Hypocrisy 
End of Disclosure 
Nuclear Blast 
Street: 04.02 
Hypocrisy = Entombed + Amon Amarth + Grave + At the Gates 
With a new record, Hypocrisy hits the road this spring in the ol’ USA to support it and all that goodness. End of Disclosure continues the path from the last few new offerings from these Swedish extreme metal legends, but actually beefs it up a hell of a lot. The title track feels like it could have come straight from Hypocrisy’s much-loved Abducted. The nine tracks offered up here to the metal gods hit strong notes of bellowing death metal with some thrashier moments, as well as a good balance of melody and heaviness. The band’s brainchild, Peter Tagtgren, whose Abyss recording studio produced some masterful works, shows a much-needed evolution with this record. Previous Hypocrisy and other production efforts from Tagtgren have felt a bit hollow, but End of Disclosure welcomes a heavier end on all instrumental and vocal levels and more importantly, a new record that fans and noobz alike can spin and spin without getting burnt out. –Bryer Wharton
