Hypocrite - Edge Of Existence
Standard, Average, Mediocrity. Those are attributes that come to my mind while listening to the re-release of the HYPOCRITE-debut "Edge Of Existence". After their last album had received good reviews, I had been looking forward to what the Swedes would offer me, but it's no revelation for sure.

Melodic Death Metal is what they have written onto their banners and Melodic Death Metal is what you will get. Not more, not less. Yet my point of criticism is that you neither get extraordinary melodies nor anything special in the vocal department. No real weaknesses, but nothing strong either... Just the short "A Black Wound" with its clean guitars and vocals makes you listen up.

Genre-fans will get a solid slab of Metal, but nothing outstanding...
