HOODED MENACE to headline the GLOOMY SUNDAY!!
Tonight we are bringing you a special treat; to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album “Fulfull the Curse”, Finlands very own doom/death warriors HOODED MENACE will headline our GLOOMY SUNDAY and perform the album in its entirety! To say it mildly, we are extremely stoked!
Hooded Menace refused to play live until 2010, after the release of their second album “Never Cross the Dead”, hence some of the material from “Fulfill the Curse” never made to the band´s set list. The guys are excited about this opportunity to focus solely on the debut album material and to conjure it up in its gory glory, song by song, at a few special shows this year.
Hooded Menace was formed in Joensuu, Finland in 2007 by Lasse Pyykkö (also known from the Finnish cult death metal band Phlegethon). Very much influenced by the 80´s Candlemass, early Cathedral and Paradise Lost, Autopsy, Asphyx and Winter, the band wanted to play really doom-laden death metal that combined crushing and somber riffs with a hint of melody. Many of their lyrics are inspired by the classic 1970s Spanish horror series The Blind Dead that included the films “Tombs of the Blind Dead”, “Return of the Evil Dead”, “Horror of the Zombies”, and “Night of the Seagulls”.
Hooded Menace have released albums on various labels such as Relapse, Profound Lore and Doomentia. The band is currently signed to Season of Mist who released the group’s fifth album “Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed” in January 2018. Hooded Menace have toured Europe and the US, opened for legendary bands such as Candlemass and Saint Vitus, and played festivals like Roadburn, Hellfest, Maryland Deathfest, California Deathfest, Netherlands Deathfest, Tuska, Party.San Open Air, Obscene Extreme and many more.
