Hooded Menace Announces Lineup Changes

Hooded Menace has now announced some changes in the group’s line-up in advance of a next studio album, which will be released via Season of Mist early in 2018.

Bassist Markus Makkonen will now be fully replaced by Antti Poutanen from Church of the Dead and Devenial Verdict. Furthermore, Kryptis drummer Otso Ukkonen takes over for Pekka Koskelo, who already recorded all tracks for the forthcoming full-length album.

Guitarist Lasse Pyykkö comments on behalf of Hooded Menace: “While Markus has left the band earlier to focus on Sadikstik Forest, we unfortunately have to let you know that or long-time drummer Pekka has also decided to leave. Our decision to relocate our headquarters (read: rehearsal place) from Joensuu to Helsinki has made it impossible for him to continue with us for private as well as professional reasons. We respect his decision and wish Pekka nothing but the best in his future. You can hear his last performance with us on our forthcoming new album. Massive thanks for all these years in Hooded Menance, Pekka!

Children of Terror Debuts New Song “(((Patah)))” From Forthcoming New Album “Kaliyuga”

Indonesian hardcore outfit Children of Terror debuts a new track called “(((Patah)))”, taken from the forthcoming new album “Kaliyuga”, which will be released by the band on September 14.

Check out now “(((Patah)))” below.

Explains the band:

“This time we want to make something unique, quite different than our previous releases. We wanted something heavier, something darker, in the vein of Unbroken, Integrity, Disembodied and many European hardcore/metal bands which always have dark image and sound, in my opinion. We also add noise music element to create atmosphere, so we get dark ambience that fit with the vibe of our music. We cross any genre, we blend any music we know and shape it in the form of a hardcore band. Draw an influence from powerviolence, grindcore, punk to old school death metal, from heavy metal to progressive rock, even a little taste of space rock. We mixed it up and let’s just say we play 90’s metallic hardcore with different approach, by the music, sound, concept, and lyrics.”

Protosequence Debuts New Song “Shepherd” From Forthcoming New EP “Biophagus”

Edmonton’s technical/progressive death metal outfit Protosequence debuts a new song entitled “Shepherd”, taken from the forthcoming EP “Biophagus”, which set for release on August 18 via Bandcamp.

Check out now “Shepherd” below.

Comments the band’s vocalist Joseph McKee about the track:

“‘Shepherd‘ holds closer to my heart than any other song I have written. The story is molded from a young man to present day. I’ve taken advice too literal as a young man, missing out on a lot of important, meaningful experiences with family and friends. It wasn’t until I was older; I realized my Shepherd was only keeping me safe from destructive feedback. I wrote this song angry, but forgiving in the end, for I was ignorant. Hopefully others can see light through these words just as much as I do.”
