HYPOCRISY announces tour with SepticFlesh and The Agonist


On November 26th 2021, HYPOCRISY released their critically acclaimed album “Worship”, which saw the best chart results all over the world in the band´s history so far. Now the Swedish death metal executors rise up again to sweep across Europe like a storm and leave a trail of pure death metal devastation in 17 countries and 37 cities. The big WORSHIP European Tour 2022 tour will start on September 30 and conclude on November 12.

Hypocrisy has a 30-year history with 12 albums, hundreds of gigs all over the world, and thousands of fans. This influential Swedish death metal band started from the will of one person, and this person’s name was (and is) Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, The Abyss, PAIN, ex-Lindemann). Having made the first demos all by himself, after getting an offer from Nuclear Blast, he invited musicians to form an actual band.

Since then, Hypocrisy gained success with their records and rocking live performances, and evolved musically and conceptually. Heavy and rich sound with catchy melodic riffs, crushing drum fills, obscure lyrics and versatile vocal parts became a signature style of the band. It´s discography from debut ‘Penetralia’ to the recent ’Worship’, through such legendary albums as ‘The Fourth Dimension’, ‘Abducted’, and ‘Virus’, is indeed a thrilling metal journey. A journey that continues.

HYPOCRISY warmly welcomes the Metal Veterans of SepticFlesh (GRC) as their special guest, as well as THE AGONIST (CAN) and Horizon Ignited (FIN) as supports on this outstanding and unique run through Europe.

HYPOCRISY‘s latest album ‘Worship‘, “Worship”, was released last November via Nuclear Blast Records. The 11-track effort was recorded and mixed at frontman Peter Tägtgren‘s Abyss Studio AB in Sweden while mastering was completed by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers Audio Mastering. Designed by artist Blake Armstrong (KATAKLYSMIN FLAMESCARNIFEX), “Worship”‘s artwork speaks to the history of the relationship between humanity and extraterrestrials.

“Worship” track listing:

01. Worship
02. Chemical Whore
03. Greedy Bastards
04. Dead World
05. We’re The Walking Dead
06. Brotherhood Of The Serpent
07. Children Of The Gray
08. Another Day
09. They Will Arrive
10. Bug In The Net
11. Gods Of The Underground

This past June, Tägtgren told Metal Injection what fans can expect to hear on “Worship”: “They will get what they want, I think, put it that way. It definitely sounds like HYPOCRISY, I would say. And not in a boring way to say, like, ‘Yeah, we’re just repeating ourselves.’ That’s not really true. It’s new songs. I mean, I have hardly played it to anybody, so I don’t know what to say. Well, whoever heard it, they say oh, this sounds really like HYPOCRISY and really good songs, you know? So I don’t know. We have to wait and see what everybody thinks. I’m in a bubble, so I can’t really say what it is. We don’t really want to change ourselves to nu-metal or try to be commercial or anything like that. I guess we do what we do.”
