HYPOCRISY has a more than 30 years spanning history, released more than a dozen albums, played hundreds of gigs, and won over the hearts and souls of ten thousands of fans all across the globe. This highly influential Swedish death metal band is the brainchild of Peter Tägtgren (PAIN, ex-Lindemann, The Abyss) who developed HYPOCRISY from an underground act in the early 90's to one of the most respected and successful groups of the genre.

HYPOCRISY's trademark sound has become a unique fusion of aggressive death metal and an inimitable sense for rich textures, memorable melodies, massive grooves and versatile vocals. No matter if you listen to the utterly morbid "Osculum Obscenum" (1993), 'Roswell 47' - one of the group's most legendary tracks - from 1996's "Abducted", "The Arrival" (2004) or the much-lauded "Worship" (2021), HYPOCRISY offer a thrilling and dynamic metal journey that spawned a discography unrivalled in its level of quality and artistic diversity.

Today, apart from Peter, the band consists of Mikael Hedlund (bass), who joined Hypocrisy back in 1991. Guitarist Thomas Elofsson is a session member since 2013. In 2022, the band was joined by session drummer Henrik Axelsson.

Do not let the name ‘Hypocrisy’ trick you: Peter Tägtgren stays true to himself, to the music and the fans, never stops creating, and never settles for anything less than perfect.
