Hypocrisy does not really fit in with either of the major Swedish death metal scenes. Too melodic to fit in with the likes of Dismember, Entombed, and Grave, but too brutal and heavy to fit in with Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, and At The Gates. That is just fine though. Hypocrisy has always done their own thing. Lead by the sinister vocal talents and amazing songwriting talents of "Evil" Pete Tagtren, Hypocrisy has put out a number of classic albums. Featuring lyrics much more influenced by science fiction themes has also helped to separate them from their countrymen. Hypocrisy is a very original and influential band and deserve their place on this list.
