Hypocrisy is a death metal band from Sweden formed in 1990 by Peter Tägtgren. Prior to starting the band, Tägtgren spent three years in Fort Lauderdale immersed in the exploding Florida death metal scene. Hypocrisy's early releases were noted as being well-executed death metal, but panned for not being particularly innovative. That criticism waned as the band matured and cultivated a more distinctive, atmospheric sound. This release compiles some of the highlights from the band’s revered catalog.

Novembers Doom formed in 1989 as the death/thrash metal band Laceration. Gradually the band began to change their sound towards a heavier, slower style, at which point the name Novembers Doom was adopted as the band members felt it more suited their style. In 2005, the band turned the corner from doom to death with ‘The Pale Haunt Departure’. Novembers Doom has since continued down this path with the release of ‘The Novella Reservoir’ in 2007 and ‘Into Night's Requiem Infernal’ 2009. This Barking Chicken Production focuses on these three albums which were all mixed by Dan Swanö and characterized by epic, dynamic death metal anthems. Alone, each of these albums shows promise, but broken down and resurrected as ‘The Pale Reservoir Infernal’, this material is comparable to melodic, progressive death classics released by Edge Of Sanity and Opeth. This one is for Fitzy.
