Hypocrisy is a melodic death metal band from Sweden. It was formed in 1990 in Stockholm, Sweden by Peter TÃ¤gtgren. Their style has been described as "atmospheric death metal." The lyrics in their early stages were Anti-Christian/Satanic, but are now focused on lyrical themes such as the paranormal and aliens. Their latest album, Virus, contains lyrics of a more typical death metal nature, dealing with violence, insanity, drug addiction and emotional struggles.
Hypocrisy's current label is Nuclear Blast. The band's style has drifted from a traditional death metal sound on their early albums to a more melodic death metal sound later on, arguably incorporating some elements from nÃ¼ metal and thrash metal in recent years, though the band's overall style has always been far from nÃ¼ metal or thrash metal. In general, Hypocrisy can be seen as an amalgamation of different styles of metal, with a predominantly death metal/melodic death metal sound.
