Hooded Menace

Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed

Season of Mist

January 26th, 2018

Album review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio



Finland based doom/ death metal band Hooded Menace unleash their latest beast Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed with songs laden with a sinister aura and foreboding aura and attitude. Hooded Menace formed in 2007 and have had multiple EPs and 7 inch albums and have toured the length of Europe and the US opening for such bands as Candlemass and Saint Vitus as well as playing fests such as Roadburn, Hellfest, Maryland Deathfest and Netherlands Deathfest, as well as many others. Hooded Menace list Candlemass, early Cathedral, Paradise Lost, Autopsy, Asphyx and Winter as influences.


With experience comes style. Hooded Menace are not your average run of the mill death/doom metal. They are indeed dark and shrouded in atmospheric musicality. With an almost demonic sounding vocal style and slight touches of thrash to their riffs, this album presents an aggressive posture.


“Sempiternal Grotesqueries” severs into you with exceptional bass by Antii Poutanen and the hefty vocals of Harri Kuokkanen. “In Eerie Deliverance" features badass drumming of Otso Ukkonen and some female vocal chants. “Cascade of Ashes,” my favorite on the album, continues with snarling vocals and razor sharp riffs of Lasse Pyykko and Teemu Hannonen.


The songs are long but showcase first rate playing ability with plenty of twisting churning macabre riffing.
