Hooded Menace – Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed (Season Of Mist)

Finland’s Hooded Menace have returned with their fifth offering with a truly tongue twisting name. 2015’s “Darkness Drips Forth” contained a quartet of epic Doom Death that pricked my ears before pummelling them. I think “Elysium of Dripping Death” is still the longest song I.. Read More
