HOODED MENACE announce new album, stream new track
Finland's death doom overlords HOODED MENACE have revealed information about their forthcoming new album titled 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed'. The highly anticipated new album, their fifth full-length, will be released worldwide on Jan. 26. 2018. Pre-orders for 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed' are available now, here.

Their most ominous, dark, and mature album to date, 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed' sees HOODED MENACE expertly weave dreary funereal atmospheres with dark melody, which only adds to emotional gravitas of what is sure to be one of the heaviest albums of 2018.

HOODED are streaming the first new track off 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed'. The track, crushing, visceral journey titled "Charnel Reflections" is streaming now at Decibel Magazine. https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2017/10/25/track-premiere-hooded-menace-charnel-reflections/

Regarding the new track and album, HOODED MENACE mastermind Lasse Pyykkö comments: "Initially we had decided not to reveal the horror movie sources behind the lyrics on our new album; to avoid any preconception for the listener, and because none of the lyrics are directly based on any movies but just inspired by movies – a big difference right there. BUT, for the sake of the approaching Halloween, let’s make an exception to our rule and expose the movie that inspired the lyrics of 'Charnel Reflections': it's 'Demons of the Mind' from 1972. The lyrics are very much a flow of consciousness, quite surreal and metaphorical. The movie is just a starting point – an inspiration, so to speak. I guess the underlying lyrical theme is madness. I particularly like how the music glides from one mood to another with a smooth, determined flow to it – it's calm and also savage – and I think, this reflects the lyrics rather nicely. This track is my new favourite in the HOODED MENACE catalogue, which is rather cool thing considering that we’ve already reached our fifth album. Hooded Menace has always been all about memorable tunes, but I feel that we have fine-tuned our approach on 'Charnel Reflections' – as well as on our entire new album."

Founded in 2007, HOODED MENACE are a death doom metal band formed in Joensuu, Finland, by guitarist Lasse Pyykkö. Citing early CANDLEMASS, CATHEDRAL, PARADISE LOST, AUTOPSY, ASPHYX, and WINTER as influences, the Finns successfully blended a compelling take on doom-laden death metal that combined crushing riffs with somber melodies. Their lyrics are often inspired by the classic 1970's Spanish horror movie series 'The Blind Dead' that included such films as 'Tombs of the Blind Dead', 'Return of the Evil Dead', 'Horror of the Zombies', and 'Night of the Seagulls'.

As an active live band, HOODED MENACE have toured the world over, appearing at many prestigious metal festivals including Hellfest, Roadburn, Maryland Deathfest, Tuska Open air, and Party San Open Air among many others.
