Where do those Swedes get all the musicians from? It's a phenomenon with all those bands that they don't run out of musicians, because HYPNOSIA are yet another band from the North...
But what do they play? Thrash with Death Metal-influences, of the quite hefty sort. The opener and title-track "Extreme Hatred" really lives up to its title and breaks through your speakers that you better run for cover and "Circle Of The Flesh" continues just in the same vein. "The Last Remains" is the first more varied song, brutal riff, harsh vocals, but not full-speed-ahead all the time.
Also different from the majority is the highly interesting instrumental "Gates Of Cirith Ungol", which shows the very melodic and varied side of HYPNOSIA, but overall all fans of the really heavy Old School-Thrash with Death-list should be the target of this album.
I dare to say that if "Extreme Hatred" had been released in the Mid-Eighties, HYPNOSIA were superstars in the Metal-scene. Now they are "only" another band that has rediscovered the old (Death)Thrash.
