If you look up “workaholic” in the dictionary, you’re sure to find a picture of Peter Tägtgren. Without a doubt he’s the busiest man in the metal scene. Despite his status as a top producer and the success of his nu-metal project, Pain, he still fronts the band that got him where he is today: HYPOCRISY!Peter and his bandmates Lars Szöke and Mikael Hedlund are ready to raise the roof of the heavy metal scene. In the last several years – with such amazing albums as The Final Chapter (1997, info | shop), Hypocrisy (1999, info | shop), Into the Abyss (2000, info | shop) or the 2001 compilation Ten Years of Chaos and Confusion (info), they’ve firmly established the band as a first-rate act. They’ve charted all over the world, toured Europe, Japan and the US, and the fans all over the world had found new Death Metal heroes. During their European Nuclear Blast Festival Tour (with Raise Hell, Kataklysm, Destruction, Crematory), they played in the middle of the set, but for the fans, they were THE headliner. Nobody expected a new Hypocrisy album this fast, but one day Peter called the record company and told them that they had recorded a new album ‘cause there was a little time available at the studio. Strange! With Catch 22 (info | shop), Hypocrisy opens up a new dimension of their sound. They combined the traditional Hypocrisy trademarks with some new influences like modern rock ’n’ roll or punk rock. Songs like “Don’t judge me,“ Destroyed,” “A Public Puppet” and “Another Dead End (For A Dead Man)“ are some of the best songs this legendary Death Metal outfit ever recorded in their ten-year long career.
