"Effigies of Evil is a menacing, relentless slab of riffs and swirling space. The 10-plus minute opener “Vortex Macabre” sets the album in motion, combining creepy atmospherics with the band’s signature oppressive progressions. There is a tendency for death-doom bands to lose the plot, which is only natural when the kick and snare are spaced 5 seconds apart. Hooded Menace have never fallen into this trap, and Effigies is proof. The riffs never wander; indeed, most of the main passages more closely resemble cinematic themes than metal chugging. It’s not hard to envision the undead creeps from Burial Ground or the Blind Dead staggering to the strains of “In The Dead We Dwell”. Even when the band speeds things up, it only lasts about as long as a victim staggering through pitch-black cemetery markers."



"That’s not to say headbang-able moments are absent here. “Curses Scribed in Gore” comes roaring out of the gate with some serious Autopsy worship, and “Evoken Vulgarity” might have more groove than any other Hooded Menace song to date. Flourishes of psychedelic guitar pop up there and also on “Crumbling Insanity”, further proof of the band’s affinity for ’70s horror. Within their dynamics, Goblin and John Carpenter are just as important to a song’s tone as Entombed or Dismember. There is enough evil at work here to satisfy any metal fan into dank crypts, ghost ships, and mind trips."

Chris Rowella

Label: Doomentia   Origin: Czech Republic
Second pressing on black vinyl. Remastered for vinyl. Deluxe gatefold sleeve. There aren't many bands that manage to bridge the gap between traditional and extreme metal, but Finland's Hooded Menace do a hell of a job of it on their sophomore album, Never Cross The Dead. By mixing downtuned death/doom riffs and guttural vocals with a knack for throwing in catchy guitar harmonies and a killer groove at just the right times, they've come up with a recipe for a winner.
