Hooded Menace announces line-up changes

Finnish death/doom act Hooded Menace has been rejoined by former drummer Pekka Koskelo. Additionally, Lasse Pyykkö will now be handling bass duties since the band doesn't currently play live. Hooded Menace has issued the following statement:
"Since we quit performing live, at least for now, we have decided to move our head-quarters (read: rehearsal place) from Helsinki back to Joensuu. This means, quite naturally, the return of our old drummer Pekka Koskelo to Hooded Menace! Now that the band is more studio-focused, it is tentatively agreed that guitarist Lasse Pyykkö will be handling all bass duties from now on, just like he did on the latest album "Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed" and on most Hooded Menace albums in general. Teemu Hannonen continues on rhythm guitar and Harri Kuokkanen as vocalist of the band. "We would like to thank drummer Otso Ukkonen and bass player Antti Poutanen for the talent and enthusiasm they've put in the live shows and we wish them nothing but the best in the future. Both guys will focus on their other bands, Otso with Krypts and Antti with Devenial Verdict. Keep your eyes peeled for their future endeavors! "Of course, we'll consider anyone talented and suitable enough as a full-time or live-bassist, if the right person comes our way in Joensuu area. Since we´re not planning on performing live in the near future, we are not actively searching for anyone at the moment. "When it comes to Hooded Menace live shows…. never say never. With the right timing and offer, there's always a chance, but currently we're more than happy to focus on other things. Thank you for reading!"

"since we quit performing live"... dudes, failing to get visas just to play some barshow really did a number on their self-esteem.

I'm happy they made so much money touring that they can retire to the studio and continue to rake in album sales. #finlandwelfare
