08:51 - Apothecary It's like it's saying "those things, that you thought were buried deep in your mind's recesses.... I am bringing them out." So, "disturbing" in a different sense of the word, I guess
08:50 - Apothecary I'm not in Vindsval's head of course, but I look at MoRT as channeling the nature of the human unconscious, and that's what's so off-putting about it in a way because its paradoxical structured/formless aura somehow reflects that
08:25 - Jaeryd Gnaw Their Tongues is something I would call disturbing though, yes.
08:23 - Jaeryd MoRT, disturbing or scary? Twisted, dark, insane, and brilliant, yes, but there's much more unsettling stuff out there.
08:14 - Apothecary If you liked I Shall Die Here, you might want to investigate the work of The Haxan Cloak farther, the guy they collabed with for it. Pretty nice if you're into the ambient stuff [link]

Catch 22 isn't that bad, in my opinion. It has some great moments like Another Dead End, or Turn The Page. However, a new atmopsheric album would be great
To be honest, I can't remember almost anything of the album.... just when I got it, gave it a few spins and found it bad for what they usually does. I just miss mid-era hypocrisy... though stuff like Virus is very good too.
Cheesy songtitles! 'The Eye'? 'United We Fall'? 'Hell Is Where I Stay'? 'Soldier Of Fortune'? 'When Death Calls'? 'The Return'? Com' on...
Cheesy song 'End Of Disclosure'...
Just hope the album is much better than what we've received so far...
Ps: I'm a diehard Hypocrisy fan!!!
I only listened the samples + the two preview songs (waiting to get a copy) but judging by the reactions, the band seems to have definitely settled into the "safe area" like so many bands formed around the 90' and signed to big labels do. I find this attitude quite disappointing, but can't really blame them.
Loving this album. If your a hypocrisy fan you'll like it if your not you won't.
Then ur in love with the band not with their creations.
Wha??? You can only judge a band by their creations! What i was saying was if your a Hypocrisy fan you will love this album. Hypocrisy seem to be a "love them or hate them" type of band and if you don't like their previous albums, this one isn't going to change your view.
