Regarding this premiere, the band comments: "With EMPTINESS, the debate revolves around the way how to categorize us. Yet, not being like others is our essence. In such a vast universe and confronted to endless sources of inspiration, we should all be our own selves. This title is a kind of provocation, but also a way for us to say that 'nothingness' is our music."

The song speaks about the Devil's many ways of corruption and those who carry his message to us through the Tredeciman Antiprophecies. With 'Satanic Slavery' we are perfecting our gruesome vision of death metal: evil lyrics supported by deadly blast-beats, corrosive guitar riffs, impious bass lines, and those toxic vocals that have turned NECROWRETCH into the beast, which you know today. Satanas' Sprawl!"

Thu, Jan 19 2017: HOODED MENACE

HOODED MENACE have laid down the first sounds for their next album. It may come as a surprise, but the Finnish death doom prodigies used only an acoustic guitar for the creation of their first fresh tunes.

No worries, they are not planning on abandoning electricity in regards to their forthcoming masterpiece. Writing, rehearsing, and recording will take its time, but we can all hope for a release in late 2017 - just don't count on it at this stage.

Hooded menace-studiopicture

Season of Mist have previously announced the signing of HOODED MENACE. Regarding their signing, HOODED MENACE commented: "We are stoked to join the very diverse roster of Season of Mist. This is a rather logical step onward on our path. New possibilities under new circumstances. We have exciting plans for the next HOODED MENACE album and we are glad we have a strong, forward-thinking label backing us up."

Regarding the campaign, the band comments, “Should you want to take part, you can change your pledge up & down month to month as your personal finances permit. All we are asking is that if you love our music, get involved, pledge via Patreon, get loads of stuff from us in return and help us make our dream of doing this band for a living a reality!”
