      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Hypocrisy's first album (1992).

      'Penetralia' is the debut from influential Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy, and still ranks among their most aggressive releases. The production quality is surprisingly high for a death metal debut of the early nineties, fleshing out the bass and only really faltering on the synthetic sound of the drums, especially evident in the opening drum roll of 'God Is a Lie.'

      So, yeah, a quick glance at the tracklist and a listen to the growled, easily-discerned lyrics makes it clear that this is entirely content to slot into the anti-Christian gimmick of early nineties death metal, demonstrated best by bands like Deicide, but while the subject matter isn't the most inventive in the world, Peter Tägtgren's guitar work is unique in the genre, ranging from catchy yet standard death metal riffs to original solos and lead melodies in all songs, a far cry from the standard, Slayer-derived death metal squeal.
