Hooded Menace / Loss A View From The Rope on Limited Edition LP
Recorded in their hometown of Nashville, "Depression's Hammer" is Loss' first new material in three years, ever since their mammoth-sized Despond album from 2001. Fear not though as during that period, they've lost none of their fucking touch, as proven by this crushing sounding new song even when they dare switching off their distortion and let things come almost to an halt, apart from few spectral chords and Mike Meacham's haunted vocals.
Not one to be distanced and still riding high on the excellent feedback gathered by their recent Labyrinth of Carrion Breeze, Hooded Menace have once again delivered the (evil) gods with "Monuments Of Misery," unsurprisingly an "intensively heavy, bleak slow and long track," as described by their mainman Lasse Pyykk, recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer studio.
One split limited edition 12 inch to behold, rounded up by Misanthropic Art's fitting artwork. All hail the dead!
