Hooded Menace & Anima Morte - Split EP

Hooded Menace is a Doom/Death Metal band formed in Finland (Joensuu) in 2007.

It all started in June of 2007 when three doom/death -loving freaks got together to jam some Candlemass cover songs but using old school death metal style vocals instead. They were having so much fun that they decided to start writing their own material, very much influenced by the first Cathedral album, Winter, and Asphyx. They wanted to do play really doom-laden death metal that combined crushing and somber riffs with just a slight hint of melody that comes from their love for the early Candlemass albums from the 80’s.

The band continued to jam but still didn’t have a band name yet. The guitarist and vocalist Lasse (also known from the cult Finnish death metal band Phlegethon and death/grinders Vacant Coffin) was a big fan of the Blind Dead zombies from the classic 70’s Spanish horror series that included the films “Tombs of the Blind Dead”, “Return of the Evil Dead”, “Horror of the Zombies”, and “Night of the Seagulls”. The rotting, eyeless Templar knights who rode on horses and drank the blood of their victims had a big influence on the music. The name HOODED MENACE was chosen by Billy Nocera of Razorback Records and the band was now officially born!

Anima Morte is a progressive rock band coming from Sweden. It is a collaboration of four musicians: Fredrik Klingwall (a member of progressive metal act Loch Vostok, thrash/heavy-metal act Machinery and death metal band Flagellation), Daniel Cannerfelt (a member of death metal band Flagellation), Stefan Granberg and Teddy Mцller (the frontman of progressive metal band Loch Vostok, drummer of defunct progressive metal band Mayadome, a member of death metal act Flagellation, horror-thrashers F.K.Ь. and Danish power metal band Wuthering Heights). The band has a discography that apart from “Face the Sea of Darkness” includes one promo-CD and 7” vinyl both titled “Viva Morte!”. “Face the Sea of Darkness” is the first CD issued on American label Dead Beat Media, a sublabel of Razorback Records, focused on metal releases, inspired by horror and 70s.
