The inception of HYPOCRISY dates back to 1992, when the combo signed its first contract with Nuclear Blast Records and released its monumental debut Penetralia. The follow-up Osculum Obscenum (1993) marked another milestone in the history of crushing extreme death metal, before The Fourth Dimension (1994) and Abducted (1996) broadened the band’s horizon with increasingly experimental influences, which brought them the reputation as one of Europe’s most innovative and important names in death metal. Eventually, 2002’s release of Catch 22 defined a totally different dimension of sound, vaulting the band into a new era of contemporary death metal.
Being on a par with their 90’s brute yet multifaceted masterpieces the bands latest release, End Of Disclosure, leaves no room for breathers. “This time I wanted to go back to basics,” commented Tägtgren. “I felt like we lost it for the last couple of albums. This one is straight to the point and more HYPOCRISY than ever! Fast, heavy, and epic.” End of Disclosure was produced by mastermind Peter Tägtgren in his Abyss Studios in Sweden, with artwork done this time by Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, KREATOR, NILE, VADER, BLOODBATH). Claiming HYPOCRISY have outdone themselves on their new opus is a bold understatement. End Of Disclosure embodies death metal perfection!

About Death...Is Just The Beginning:
The legendary death metal compilation Death...Is Just The Beginning is back! Nuclear Blast’s involvement with death metal harkens back to the late ‘80s and early ‘90s explosion of this heavy and deadly genre. The Death...Is Just The Beginning compilations paved the way to the introduction of many soon to become legendary acts such as Pungent Stench, Dismember, Hypocrisy, Kataklysm. While the scene suffered a bit of stagnation somewhere in the mid-to-late ‘90s, the genre as a whole never went away and Nuclear Blast continued to release quality death metal in the form of bands such as Hypocrisy, Kataklysm, Decapitated, etc.
Highlights for this latest installment include some re-recordings of classic tracks, Nuclear Blast bands performing covers of classic songs from other Nuclear Blast artists, demos and rarities of previously released and unreleased songs, original cover artwork by Blake Armstrong and layout by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER, HATEBREED, KREATOR).
