Hypocrisy - _Hypocrisy Destroys Wacken_
(Nuclear Blast / PHD, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
Admit it. You thought it was over after the brilliant _The Fourth Dimension_. I did. I was sure the band was packing it in. But to much of our relief, the band re-grouped and started writing again. This live album, recorded at last Summer's Wacken Open Air festival, is the true testimony of how good this band is. Just listen to the tightness of the band and the killer live sound. Such professionalism rarely gets captured live. This is supreme, my friends. And with a fuckin' blistering new record out this month (the self-titled release), it seems as though Peter T. and Co. have hit us up with a double dose of goodies to gnaw on. Let's hope the band (it looks pretty good, my friend) has attained a second wind and keep putting out good material as we head into the millennium. Hypocrisy slays with classic live renditions of "Roswell 47", "Pleasure of Molestation" and "Osculum Obscenum", to name a few. Too good to pass up, people. Go get it.
