HOODED MENACE Reveals New Album Details, Shares First Single

Death Doom outfit HOODED MENACE will be releasing their new full-length album, ‘The Tritonus Bell,’ on August 27 via Season of Mist! The band has unveiled the cover artwork, tracklist, and additional details below. Moreover, HOODED MENACE is now sharing the pummeling first single, “Blood Ornaments,” which can be heard at THIS LOCATION.

The track may also be pre-saved across all digital streaming services HERE.
Guitarist Lasse Pyykkö comments on the new album and track: “It is with utter excitement that we premiere the first track off our new album ‘The Tritonus Bell!’ There are definitely some new flavours added to the mix, and ‘Blood Ornaments’ comes with some of our most intriguing ingredients yet – and a bloody side taste. There’s a contrast between death/doom misery and head-bangable heavy metal riffs like never heard before in Hooded Menace´s music, making ‘Blood Ornaments’ my favourite track from the album. 

“Obviously a lot of inspiration for ‘The Tritonus Bell’ comes from the usual suspects Candlemass, Paradise Lost, and Trouble, but also classic 80´s heavy metal such as Mercyful Fate, King Diamond, Dio, and Ozzy Osbourne. Even if you can’t always put your finger on it, they all definitely played a big role in why ‘The Tritonus Bell’ turned out the way it did. When it comes to mixing and mastering, we had the pleasure of working with King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRocque/Sonic Train Studios, who made sure everything would sound great, and I can honestly say I’ve never been more satisfied with the results sound- and music-wise.

Pre-orders are now live HERE

Line-up:
Harri Kuokkanen – Vocals 
Lasse Pyykkö – Lead and rhythm guitar, bass
Teemu Hannonen – Rhythm guitar 
Pekka Koskelo – Drums
