Video of the Week: Hypocrisy – End Of Disclosure

Whew, just made the Friday deadline for Video OTW. Luckily I’m visiting a part of the Universe where it’s yesterday today.

This is the title song of the album released by these Swedish melodic death metal stalwarts in March this year. It’s very relevant and topical right now, however, with Time magazine and other news giants choosing “Disclosure” (via Snowden, and much to the dismay of the NSA) as the news theme of 2013.

The video is fairly minimalist in visual approach. It says a lot by inference. However, there’s enough of a storyline to get the gist of the band’s message. I enjoy videos that focus attention on the band and the music rather than on actors and a complicated narrative.

As for the music itself — well, melodeath is one of my very favourite types of metal, and Hipocrisy does it excellently.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
