Maximum Metal Rating Legend
5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

Hypocrisy
A Taste of Extreme Divinity

Company: Nuclear Blast Records
Release: 2009
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Chaoslord

  • Back into the death metal material a bit again



  • Remember Hypocrisy, that band with some guy named Peter Tagtgren? Well they have followed up the release of Virus with another great quality release. They continue to have great production, but with a guy like Peter taking care of that, would you expect anything less?

    Once again, they are going back into the death metal material a bit again, straying somewhat away from the subject of extraterrestrial life and science fiction that had been present on previous releases. The musical material is still heavy and in your face. The guitars are very melodic yet heavy at the same time. Tagtgren's vocals are brutal and bloody, delivering that perfect backdrop to the music the band puts out.

    I hadn't listened to these guys in awhile and immediately picked up this album when I saw it on the shelf. I haven't taken this out of my CD player for a while now. Metal fans will definitely want to pick this one up. Good quality death metal with a few black metal elements and some good, catchy guitar work to boot. Go forth metalheads and get your own Taste of Extreme Divinity!!
