Hooded Menace announce new album, share lead single

Death doom outfit Hooded Menace have shared new track "Blood Ornaments," taken from the band's upcoming release The Tritonus Bell. The album is scheduled for worldwide release on August 27 via Season of Mist. The new song can be heard now here: The Tritonus Bell was mixed by Andy LaRocque (of King Diamond) and features cover art courtesy of Wes Benscoter. 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're 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." The Tritonus Bell track listing: 1. Chthonic Exordium 2. Chime Diabolicus 3. Blood Ornaments 4. Those Who Absorb The Night 5. Corpus Asunder 6. Scattered Into Dark 7. Instruments Of Somber Finality
