End of Disclosure
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 22 March, 2013
Playing time: 43:45

Hypocrisy doesn't need any introduction. The band with leader Peter Tägtren delivers quality from the start. This new album starts with a real Hypocrisy hymn; a mid-tempo track with a lot of melody. "Tales of Thy Spineless" and "When Death Calls" are two of the fastest tracks on the album and see to it that the more mid-tempo songs have more impact. "The Eye is a mid-tempo song with impressive harmonies and beautiful melodic parts that reminds me a bit of the 'Virus' album. Another fast track "United We Fall" throws you back in your chair and is a perfect track for a live gig. The track "Hell is Where I Stay" is a slow song that could have been on the tracklist of their "Abducted" album. The slow tempo, the threatening riffs and the low grunting of Peter makes this one of the better tracks.

This album is a bit more melodic than the two predecessors and sounds a little less aggressive and brutal, but that makes it more interesting in my opinion. With "The Return" the CD has a nice end piece. It is a slow and very melodic track and has a certain darkness. It is a song that sounds like a combination of Amorphis, Edge of Sanity, Paradise Lost and Eternal Tears of Sorrow, but then with a Hypocrisy base.

This new 'End of Disclosure' has everything a good melodic death album needs and is again one that fits in the Hypocrisy anthology.
