Hypocrisy in its earliest incarnations was examplary of Swedish death metal, albeit hybridized with the American styles, and touched with a remnant sliver of heavy metal. By no means extraordinary, it is still worthwhile music capturing the spirit of death metal which has since faded with time to a residual nostalgic afterglow.
The above posts are examples of how a Metal Forum can include excellent writing and critique. I would have learned alot about these bands just by reading the above posts by Hate Edge and company. There are plenty of people with informed opinions on this Board whom don't expose themselves as Basic Posers by constantly throwing their "Kult Adherence" in the face of others. Great job, thank you.
The above posts make me more interested in what goes on here.
I again must ask: has anyone any familiarity with the '80's Thrash band ...I think they were called Exhumer or Exumer? One of their releases was called something like Possessed by Fire? What about the band Razor? Zoetrope?
I like really speedy Thrash with intense, ripping guitar solos. Tome, Thrash is exemplified in stuff like Kreator: Endless Pain, Morbid Angel: Abominations of Desolation and Testament: New Order, as weird and diverse as those citings may seem.
