Finland's masters of horror-inspired dirgy down-tuned death doom HOODED MENACE have signed with Profound Lore Records. Mastermind Lasse Pyykko is currently putting the finishing touches (while conjuring inspiration from the most cult of horror films) on the material for the follow-up to the masterful "Fulfill The Curse" album, and rest assured, the new CD will be "heavier and more all-encompassing," according to a press release. Look for Lasse and co. to enter the studio sometime this fall and if all goes according to plan, the new HOODED MENACE opus will arrive in early 2010.

HOODED MENACE was formed in June 2007 when three doom/death-loving freaks got together to jam some CANDLEMASS cover songs but using old-school, death metal-style vocals instead. They were having so much fun that they decided to start writing their own material, very much influenced by the first CATHEDRAL album, WINTER and ASPHYX. They wanted to do play really doom-laden death metal that combined crushing and somber riffs with just a slight hint of melody that comes from their love for the early CANDLEMASS albums from the '80s.
