Finnish death / doom dealers Hooded Menace recently announced their signing to Relapse Records and have now completed work on their first album for the label. "Effigies of Evil" was recorded at the band's own Horrisound Studios and is planned for a Summer 2012 release.

Additionally, the band has added guitarist Teemu Hannonen to the fold for live shows. Current guitarist Lasse Pyykko comments:

"We´re excited and proud to announce that Teemu Hannonen (formerly Phlegethon) joins Hooded Menace as a 2nd guitarist! Finally our live sound will be richer and heavier as it should be! Also it´s very cool to have an old band mate of mine in Hooded Menace!"

5/11 - Oulu, Finland @ Nuclear Nightclub (w/ Coffins)
5/12 - Helsinki, Finland @ Club PRKL (w/ Coffins)
