Blood for... For the burning oath Blood for... For the burning oath Cold pyres Withholding a cinder Of sanity Remembrance Bloodstained and distorted Gathering On the sacrificial grounds Chained to A morbid trace Of condolence Inverse Dungeons Incorporeal Vaults oozing drips of the curse Whispers from maggot holes Damned souls Trapped in the screams Slave to The endless winds Damned souls Trapped in the screams Pale reflections Lush disharmonies Paralyzed Caught in a bizarre dream Charred formless Communing with bleakness Reveling Held captive In barren existence Ardently Crushed by dead feathers' weight In the fumes of The ghastly oath Bygone desires Return Dungeons Incorporeal Vaults oozing drips of the curse Whispers from maggot holes Damned souls Trapped in the screams Slave to The endless winds Damned souls Trapped in the screams

Drawn to the verge Of life dissolved Wails fondling the sails In shattered remorse Faith conceals Rigor mortis drift With no aim Tides of rot Wash away the hearts That once craved When unseen, Fear looks vibrant Coffins' jaws Sigh reprisal Creeping shades Of the skeletal crawl Dread or embrace The graves deeper than the sea On dead calm sheets Time suppurates Sleep in the arms Swinging a blade In void eyes Desolation thrives Vile from birth Tides of gore Purify the souls That once were When unseen, Joy looks violent Coffins' jaws Gasp for silence Dormant world In skeletal daze Maddening pleasure In blood dripping bliss

Endless, howling dark Pulsating aeons Unfold in gape Supernatural weight Of sorrows´ black haze Descends to eclipse Immersion in gore Cast of souls Fade into absence To rot in resurgence Gross dance of the bones Mesmerized Hopeless gleam impales A window of throe Mirrors deform Poisoned urns of lust Illusions in fire Lead astray Edge of the nightfall Madness and disbelief Grace of the forlorn Ashen with solemn decay Abysmal pulse Of colossal gloom Now ashes heave Ethereal seance Draws death The dust of souls Darkness drips forth Darkness drips forth As twilight disgorges Eloquent, wild beasts Of eternal midnight Those elusive ruins Of fleshless caress Reflect on the dead eyes Growing black moss Rising high Sordid tears it cries Parasite in paradise Sick serenades of the headless choir Edge of the nightfall Madness and disbelief Grace of the forlorn Ashen with solemn decay Fade into absence To rot in resurgence Sordid tears it cries Parasite in paradise

Eyes torched by dawn Bones crumble into dust Skulls in grotesque swirl Absorbed into oblivion Drear enigma Lured inside the maze of sins Writhing shapes wallow in dusk Heavens ripped for centuries Bleeding through the shroud of gods Sunset of Hysteric prayers Death´s swallowing gaze The watchtower upon flesh Consecrated to obscure Clocks possessed Time´s turned back Cutting through silence Of embryonic dreams So our sins start anew Graven perversions Skullptures of scorn Die! Lanterns like veins Light unreality Waters stand still Woods petrified Dripping with anguish Exquisite tombs The bone cradles of our doom Soul-ripping lullabies The shadows drag With surreal misery Mad prophecy Scars yawning wide Bells rumble to dust Looming towers of guilt Devotional in nothingness Abode of the soulless Lured inside the maze of sins Writhing shapes wallow in dusk Heavens ripped for centuries Bleeding through the shroud of gods Cold Oblivion Beyond deserted flesh Consecrated to obscure

about

Finland’s HOODED MENACE return with Darkness Drips Forth, their most gruesome work to date. Recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard, Primordial, etc) the band employ a new approach on their latest effort, expanding their writing across four mammothly dense tracks that nearly all exceed ten minutes a piece. Cavernous vocals preside over Lasse Pyykko's rocky riffs, while the band’s unshakable rhythmic core provides a grim backbone for the record. The hint of melody HOODED MENACE sought back in their earliest days has fully blossomed into an essential element of the band’s music; Darkness Drips Forth is as melodic as it is devastating and as emotionally disquieting as it is thematically stirring. Funereal, deliberate, and unhurried, Darkness Drips Forth is sure to be an essential acquisition for fans of crushing doom and old-school death metal alike. Hooded Menace deliver a gruesomely glorious treat just in time for Halloween!
