Upcoming release: "Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed"

Release date: Fri, Jan 26 2018, US Fri, Jan 26 2018

HOODED MENACE have released the third dark masterpiece taken from their forthcoming new album, 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed', which will hit the shops on January 26th, 2018.

The Finnish doom cultists are streaming "Sempiternal Grotesqueries" via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel here!

HOODED MENACE mastermind Lasse Pyykkö commented: "Once all the songs for 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed' were written, it became clear to us that 'Sempiternal Grotesqueries' was going to be the album's opening track. Unlike on our previous records, there's no intro track on the new album, because we figured that the doomy and atmospheric riff, which kicks off 'Sempiternal Grotesqueries' (and also closes the song) would work just fine as an intro to the album. It sets the mood, and as soon as you have lit the black candles, the song grows into a gripping death doom whirlwind and you're in for a ride with the Blind Dead.""

Biography

Hooded_menace-04-24-small-pasi_nevalaita

Doom has always been a style for a rather select but also very dedicated audience. Among the aficionados, HOODED MENACE have quickly become a household name for authenticity and excellence.

With their upcoming fifth album, 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed', the Finns continue to impress with immaculate songwriting skills and the perfect balance between harsh death metal fuelled outbursts and exquisite melodic melancholy.

HOODED MENACE were formed in Joensuu, Finland in 2007 by guitarist Lasse Pyykkö, who had also performed in the Finnish cult death metal band PHLEGETHON. The band has always avowed to the strong influence by early CANDLEMASS and CATHEDRAL as well as PARADISE LOST, AUTOPSY, ASPHYX, and WINTER. Their lyrics are often inspired by the classic 1970's Spanish horror movie series 'The Blind Dead'.

HOODED MENACE recorded a 2-track demo, 'The Eyeless Horde' in 2007, which was released on 7" the following year. Their debut album 'Fulfill the Curse' was released in 2008 and the highly acclaimed sophomore full-length 'Never Cross the Dead' came out in 2010. HOODED MENACE remained in a highly creative mode and delivered 'Effigies of Evil' in 2012 and their latest milestone, 'Darkness Drips Forth' in 2015. With a penchant for classic vinyl, the Finns also released several split singles and EPs for example with ASPHYX and COFFINS.

HOODED MENACE toured in Europe and North America, and performed at many major metal festivals such as Hellfest, Roadburn, Maryland Deathfest, Tuska, and Party San Open Air among others.

Now the time has once again come, when HOODED MENACE unleash skeletal horror and sombre despair onto their craving audience. The dead shall ride on 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed' and the living shall rejoice!
