“Elysium of Dripping Death”: Hooded Menace are Hard on the Cleaning Lady
God, Hooded Menace just sound like ooze. Not just blood or death or gore, but fucking slime, the kind of stuff you find coating a horrible monster as it comes lumbering into the light and peels back its pustule-covered lips. They sound like the shit that comes out of Venom’s mouth. They sound like the Tarman.
Case in point, “Elysium of Dripping Death”, the first song off of the band’s upcoming new album. A creepy pool of riffy death-doom, the song just drips with decay and goo and pus. It has everything you want out of a Hooded Menace track, including earworm riffs and gurgling gangrene vocals. I’m so excited to ring in my Halloween with an album full of this.
Sink into “Elysium of Dripping Death” below. Darkness Drips Forth (so much dripping) comes out October 30th on Relapse. Pre-order it here.
