Hypocrisy’s Peter Tägtgren to Chaoszine about “Worship”: My only goal was to write really good songs with a fat production”

Author Arto Mäenpää - 10.10.2021

With governments finally admitting that UFOs do in fact exist, and humanity attempting to heal from a state of the recent crisis, the timing couldn’t be more appropriate for the newest addition to the Hypocrisy catalog: “Worship”. Due on November 26 via Nuclear Blast Records, “Worship” is 11 tracks of precise, ferocious musicianship. Commonly inspired by the fusion of the modern and the ancient, Hypocrisy has once more found a way to combine innovative ideas with classic sound in order to deliver something metalheads can enjoyably consume with awe and brutal vigor. As usual, all recording and mixing took place at frontman Peter Tägtgren’s Abyss Studio AB in Sweden while mastering was completed by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers Audio Mastering. Designed by artist Blake Armstrong (Kataklysm, In Flames, Carnifex), “Worship”‘s artwork speaks to the history of the relationship between humanity and extraterrestrials.

Chaoszine had recently the possibility to caught up with Peter Tägtgren to discuss about his life during the COVID-19 pandemic, his decision to leave Lindemann and what can we expect from the next Hypocrisy album which is their 13th to date.
