Hooded Menace Enters The Studio

Finnish death / doom bringers Hooded Menace have entered the studio to record their new album and first for Relapse Records. The new record, entitled "Effigies of Evil," is being self-recorded by the band at its very own Horrisound Studios, the group’s personal compound of stench and decay.

Drums are being tracked at SF Sound and the band plans to complete recording in mid February for a Summer 2012 release.

Hooded Menace, which takes 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.

Hooded Menace guitarist Lasse Pyykko commented on the new recordings: "This album is the catchiest stuff we’ve done so far. On average it’s slightly faster (read: more mid-tempos) and a bit more melodic than the previous records but as always there’s still an unhealthy dose of down-tempo horror hammering. It’s crushingly heavy, dark and graceful music in all its gory glory!"
