Hooded Menace Announces Lineup Changes

Hooded Menace has now announced some changes in the group's line-up in advance of a next studio album, which will be released via Season of Mist early in 2018.

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!
