"Hypocrisy reminds us that he remains the boss for a powerful and catchy death: with "Worship", he signs a flamboyant return."

We had to be patient to see Hypocrisy again. More than eight years have passed since the release of "End Of Disclosure", but it must be said that Peter Tägtgren has an agenda worthy of a minister: since then he has released an album of Pain, produced many records and released two albums with Till Lindemann from Rammstein. The two men had a falling out during 2020, which allowed Peter to relaunch Hypocrisy. This gives "Worship" which is expected to confirm the band's hold on the death metal scene.

The eleven tracks of "Worship" form a coherent whole that takes the listener under its wing and never lets go. When Hypocrisy wants to hurt, it does it with a certain pleasure by delivering pure slaps ('Worship', 'Chemical Whore', 'Brotherhood Of The Serpent', 'God Of The Underground'). Tägtgren alternates between snarling growl and deep vocals from beyond the grave with ease. We enjoy a death metal of an overwhelming force. This violence is perfect and the little extra that makes the difference comes from perfectly brought and very catchy choruses.

At the same time Hypocrisy reminds us that they are also a great creator of dark and unhealthy atmospheres in a spirit worthy of good old sci-fi movies, with quite irresistible pieces finding a remarkable balance between power and melody. 'We're The Walking Dead' is the best example: with its end-of-the-world look it's the great moment of the album, carried by an unstoppable chorus. In the same spirit, 'Children Of The Gray' and 'Bug In The Net' are just as successful.
 
"Worship" is a total success, showing that Hypocrisy is back in business with a brilliant shape, demonstrating that it remains the boss for a death metal that knows how to seduce and take by the throat at the same time.

OTHER REVIEWS
LEVERAGE: Above The Beyond (2021)
MELODIC METAL - Catchy from the first listen, "Above And Beyond" is full of treasures and allows Leverage to mark its territory with talent within the metallic and melodic landscape.
MASSACRE: Resurgence (2021)
DEATH METAL - While sinking into the entrails of "Resurgence", time seems to have stopped more than thirty years ago for Massacre, inflexible incarnation of an eternal death metal coming from the bottom of the ages...
