Death Doom outfit HOODED MENACE is now unveiling the third new song ‘Those Who Absorb The Night’, which is taken from the band’s upcoming release ‘The Tritonus Bell’. The album is scheduled for worldwide release on August 27th, 2021 via Season of Mist.
Guitarist Lasse Pyykkö comments on the new track: “We´re excited to unleash the video for “Those Who Absorb The Night” off the new album “The Tritonus Bell”! The rather catchy track has different moods and vibes to it, going from gloomy melancholy to bursts of aggressiveness and back, and I think the atmospheric and spider-webbed visuals support the music quite perfectly.“
With the immaculate songwriting skills and the perfect balance between harsh death metal fueled outbursts and exquisite melodic melancholy, HOODED MENACE unleash skeletal horror and somber despair onto their craving audience with ‘The Tritonus Bell’.
HOODED MENACE was formed in Joensuu, Finland in 2007 by guitarist Lasse Pyykkö, who had also performed in the Finnish cult death metal band PHLEGETHON. The band has always avowed to the strong influence by early CANDLEMASS and CATHEDRAL as well as PARADISE LOST, AUTOPSY, ASPHYX, and WINTER. Their lyrics are often inspired by the classic 1970’s Spanish horror movie series ‘The Blind Dead’.
HOODED MENACE recorded a 2-track demo, ‘The Eyeless Horde’ in 2007, which was released on 7″ the following year. Their debut album ‘Fulfill the Curse’ was released in 2008 and the highly acclaimed sophomore full-length ‘Never Cross the Dead’ came out in 2010. With a penchant for classic vinyl, the Finns also released several split singles and EP’s, for example with ASPHYX and COFFINS, before delivering their full-lengths ‘Effigies of Evil’ (2012) and ‘Darkness Drips Forth’ (2015). HOODED MENACE remained in a highly creative mode during their latest full-length ‘Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed’ which was released in 2018 via Season of Mist.
Throughout the years, HOODED MENACE toured in Europe and North America, and performed at many major metal festivals such as Hellfest, Roadburn, Maryland Deathfest, Tuska, and Party San Open Air among others.
With their upcoming sixth album ‘The Tritonus Bell’, HOODED MENACE threw in more classic 80´s Heavy Metal, such as KING DIAMOND and MERCYFUL FATE, resulting in the most up-tempo (but never fast) HOODED MENACE album with the catchiest song material to date!
