According to an interview with their bassist Mikael Hedlund, Swedish extreme metal veterans Hypocrisy are writing material for a new studio album, which they plan to record next year.

Mikael Hedlund told Metal Shock Finland: "We're focusing on writing a new album. That's the most important thing for us at the moment. It's too early to say what it's going to sound like but all I can say is that it's not gonna be any change of style. It will be a classic Hypocrisy album without no compromises. We already got some material and we're really looking forward to enter the studio again. We don't know yet when it will but hopefully after the summer 2012. Nothing is confirmed yet. We're doing the MetalFest tour in May/June plus some other festivals. That's the plans at the moment."

"It's too early to say what it's going to sound like but all I can say is that it's not gonna be any change of style"

What a shock.

So half fast-paced good songs and half mediocre mid-paced filler it is then.

Cool they have a new disc in the works, but I haven't liked much since their Virus album, and I think the excellence of their '99 s/t is well in the past, but hey, I'll still check it out just to see what they're up to.

I guess I don't want to hear the same exact album from them over and over. But, I've always liked Hypocrisy a lot even if it can get repetitive at times. I'm not sure if I would call it repetitive though. The albums all sound very "hypocrisy", but they all have a different feel to them. It should be a pretty enjoyable album though

I was not impressed with their 2009 offering, very bland IMO .. oh well

Maybe they mean it as a double negative, that there WILL be compromises.

Can't wait!

Maybe its just the fanboy in me, but I cannot wait. I've personally enjoyed everything they have put out, even Catch 22.

At least they don't say like every other band that this is gonna be their best release ever

True that. I'd rather have a band say "we're gonna write the same shit, so if you like our style you'll like this album" as opposed to telling me they're going to give us the best, heaviest, most technical, brutal, progressive, experimental release they've ever done that will please fans of the old sound and also please newcomers.

Hypocrisy rules and will rule as always!

Actually I should have mentioned it at first. Nice to see other people think that album was their best.

Looking forward to it. An average Hypocrisy album is still good.
