Hypocrisy's best album. This is when their style of atmospheric, melodic, alien obsessed, grammatically challenged death metal reached it's peak. This album also has their best song ever, "Adjusting The Sun".
Had Hypocrisy actually broken up after this album, this surely would have become as legendary as Slaughter Of The Soul
Even if Abducted is one of my favourite Hypocrisy albums I still have to admit that The Final Chapter is the greatest Hypocrisy of all time. This is the perfect Hypocrisy album in my opinion. And the reasons why are the same as for Abducted, and I'm talking about the immense track, vocal and lyric variety. Alien themes are mixed with lyrics based on death and violence. Intense and brutal tracks like Dominion and Last Vanguard are mixed with slow atmospheric songs like Inquire Within and Request Denied. But it is the use of vocals that makes this album to a winner. Here you have it all: Growls, screams, shrieking, harsh vocals, snarls and clean vocals. Do you realize how varied this album really is?! The Final Chapter is almost an improvement of Abducted because everything is slightly bigger and slightly better. People who are tired of the melodic death mainstream should take a look at Hypocrisy. I suggest that you get this album as soon as possible.
