HYPOCRISY Frontman Interviewed On 'Rock Made Of Metal' (Audio)

On April 18, Radio Caley's "Rock Made Of Metal" conducted an interview with with Peter Tägtgren of Swedish death metallers HYPOCRISY at at Audio Lounge, Maryhill in Glasgow, Scotland. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

HYPOCRISY was forced to cancel its previously announced North American tour due to reasons beyond the group's control. The bandmembers had received their visa approvals and everything was going as scheduled until the embassy let them know that the earliest they could pick up their visas, get them stamped and so on, wasn't until late June at the earliest. A regular procedure that would normally take just a few days to sort takes much longer at the moment due to that current workload Homeland Security is experiencing.

"As we were getting ready to go get our visas stamped and ready for the tour we were informed that the earliest we could go initially was sometime in July," explained Tägtgren. "We then immediately continued to call them, got the label to help with some letters, and put our lawyer to work etc. The best that got us was an appointment in late June.

"This is a HUGE blow to us, to our fans and everyone who has supported HYPOCRISY in North America.

"Sometimes there are battles you can't win, and this is one of them. We will be back, I can promise that!”

The trek was also set to feature Brazilian brothers in death KRISIUN, Belgian gore-grinders ABORTED, and technical-melodic-death-masters ARSIS, as well as AUTUMN'S END and STARKILL on select shows. The tour will continue as previously scheduled at this time minus HYPOCRISY and ABORTED.

HYPOCRISY's latest album, "End Of Disclosure", was released in Europe on March 22 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was produced by Tägtgren at his Abyss Studio in Sweden. The artwork was created by Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, KREATOR, NILE, VADER).

HYPOCRISY's "Hell Over Sofia - 20 Years Of Chaos And Confusion" DVD/CD was released in October 2011 via Nuclear Blast. The disc contains footage of the band's February 27, 2010 concert at the Blue Box club in Sofia, Bulgaria.
