Hooded Menace announce European Summer Tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 1:24 PM (PST)

Finland’s death/doom overlords HOODED MENACE have announced a string of European tour dates this summer. The mini tour kicks off on June 22 in Oberhousen, and sees the band playing at Death over Drachten in the Netherlands. A full list of dates can be found below.

HOODED MENACE are touring in support of their new album, ‘Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed’. Their most ominous, dark, and mature album to date, ‘Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed’ sees HOODED MENACE expertly weave dreary funereal atmospheres with dark melody, which only adds to emotional gravitas of what is sure to be one of the heaviest albums of 2018.

‘Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed’ is streaming now at Noisey. ‘Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed’, HOODED MENACE’s fifth full-length, is available here.

Track list
1. Sempiternal Grotesqueries 
2. In Eerie Deliverance 
3. Cathedral of Labyrinthine Darkness
4. Cascade of Ashes
5. Charnel Reflections 
6. Black Moss

Hooded Menace’s “Darkness Drips Forth” will ooze stomp you flat

Fall is here and October is nigh. Peter Steele’s month of choice, this October will undoubtedly be a rad one for the unrusting genre of metal as we have our Metal Riot Creature Honeymoon comp coming out on Halloween via bandcamp, but there’s more! Hooded Menace‘s Darkness Drips Forth would ensure a kick ass October even if it was the only metal record to come out at all that month! The four song Relapse release is due Oct. 30th and can be pre-ordered at Bandcamp HERE.

This release couldn’t be more worth your while, melodic guitar threaded doom n’ death with a titanic rhythm section that creates a steel framework to prop up the band’s bold and apocalyptic city of sounds. Each song stretches well past the attention span of the average troll, yet you don’t need to muster resolve to keep listening as you’re swept up in the avalanche and carried along. It will take hardy souls to survive the onslaught, but it’s a worthwhile endeavor. From “Ashen With Solemn Decay”, which features writhing, hoarse vocals and complete guitar surrender akin to Baroness jamming with Novembers Doom, to key track “Elysium of Dripping Death” (which you can hear now), you will be left floored and riff whored.

Relapse Records sign Hooded Menace

Posted by Ehrila on Friday, July 1, 2011 at 2:17 PM (PST)

Relapse Records recently inked a deal with Hooded Menace, and made the following statement:

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Finnish death / doom bringers Hooded Menace, who take influence from 80’s era Candlemass, Cathedral, Paradise Lost, Asphyx, and Black Sabbath, has previously release two full length albums as well as split releases with Coffins, Asphyx, Ilsa, and more. The band recently made their US live debut this spring with performances as part of Maryland Deathfest (Baltimore), Chaos in Tejas (Austin), and Doom in June (Las Vegas).

Hooded Menace guitarist Lasse Pyykko commented the deal;

“We’re very excited about signing with Relapse Records! This seems like a logical next step for the band. Of course we are still going to release 7”s and such with smaller labels too because we love doing that. As for the full length album, now we’re going have all the support, promotion, and distribution we could possibly hope at this stage. It’s pretty amazing to be part of the label with such a long and remarkable history. Relapse has released many albums that we are big fans of. We are stoked about leaving our heavily and deeply stamped mark to that long, significant list of great music.”
