Death Doom outfit Hooded Menace are now unveiling the second new song ‘Chime Diabolicus’, which is taken from the band’s upcoming release ‘The Tritonus Bell’. The album is scheduled for world-wide release on August 27th, 2021 via Season of Mist.
Guitarist Lasse Pyykkö comments on the new album and track:
“Just like the lead single ‘Blood Ornaments,’ the second premiere track ‘Chime Diabolicus’ showcases very well where Hooded Menace is in 2021, offering some 80´s heavy metal vibes, catchy and powerful vocals, better crafted solos, and a faster pace while never forgetting the band´s roots in slow death/doom style. Actually, the slower riff, somewhere in the middle of the song where the second solo kicks in, is one of our heaviest.”
The album’s track list is as follows
Those Who Absorb The Night
Scattered Into Dark
Instruments Of Somber Finality
The Tritonus Bell can be pre-ordered through the Season of Mist Webshop.
