Hypocrisy – Tales of thy Symmetry

15th of June, 2013

Hypocrisy is a melodic Death Metal band from Ludvika, Sweden, formed in 1991 by Mastermind Peter Tägtgren. They started as a traditional Death Metal band, but soon started to incorporate melodic elements in their sound. To this day Hypocrisy released twelve full length albums, four EPs, two demos, two compilations, two live releases and four singles. Albums like Penetralia, The Fourth Dimension or The Final Chapter are under my most heard albums ever.

Mose Giganticus is a Progressive Synth Sludge Metal band from Philadephia, USA, formed in 1999. And when I say band, I mean Matt Garfield (songwriter, vocalist, programmer, drummer, and keyboardist) plus several additional musicians for live performances. The band has released three albums with 2010’s Gift Horse (released through Relapse Records) being the latest one. Gift Horse actually was one of my 2010 Top 5 albums.
