Hypocrisy - Penetralia

1992 Nuclear Blast Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-06

I actually have a better appreciation for this album over time. Contrasting this release with what was around at the time, Penetralia lives up to the bands desire to release one of the most evil discs. The production is really good, but not nearly what it would become on the later releases. Horror inspired, the entire album is pretty similar to a lot of the American death that was around, bolstered by T?gren's writing skills, yet hampered by the one dimensional vocals. I prefer the later releases, but these first two also deserve their place in the history books for raising the standard for death metal.
