Album Review

The follow-up to the minor self-titled comeback effort of a year earlier, Into the Abyss might feature a somewhat distracted Hypocrisy on the downward end of its creative journey, but the band still smolders on this 2000 Nuclear Blast effort, refusing to allow much if any distance to appear between itself and the best Scandinavian metal outfits.
