Bassist Markus Makkonen will now be fully replaced by Antti Poutanen from Church of the Dead and Devenial Verdict. Furthermore, Kryptis drummer Otso Ukkonen takes over for Pekka Koskelo, who already recorded all tracks for the forthcoming full-length album.

Guitarist Lasse Pyykkö comments on behalf of Hooded Menace: "While Markus has left the band earlier to focus on Sadikstik Forest, we unfortunately have to let you know that or long-time drummer Pekka has also decided to leave. Our decision to relocate our headquarters (read: rehearsal place) from Joensuu to Helsinki has made it impossible for him to continue with us for private as well as professional reasons. We respect his decision and wish Pekka nothing but the best in his future. You can hear his last performance with us on our forthcoming new album. Massive thanks for all these years in Hooded Menance, Pekka! More...

Hooded Menace Issues Preview Clip For New Release

Finnish doom/death act Hooded Menace is back with a "four monstrous slabs of melodic, funereal devastation" on the new release "Darkness Drips Forth." A preview clip for the album can be heard in the player below. The album drops via Relapse Records on October 30th. Pre-orders can be made at this location.

Recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard, Primordial, etc), the band employs a new approach on their latest effort, expanding the writing across four mammothly dense tracks that nearly all exceed ten minutes a piece. Cavernous vocals preside over Lasse Pyykko's rocky riffs, while the band’s unshakable rhythmic core provides a grim backbone for the record. The hint of melody Hooded Menace sought back in their earliest days has fully blossomed into an essential element of the band’s music; "Darkness Drips Forth" is as melodic as it is devastating and as emotionally disquieting as it is thematically stirring. Funereal, deliberate, and unhurried, "Darkness Drips Forth" is sure to be an essential acquisition for fans of crushing doom and old-school death metal alike. Hooded Menace deliver a gruesomely glorious treat just in time for Halloween! More...
