I, Da Witchfinder If Vincent Price were alive, he would think this is the dopest shit ever. Favorite track: Crumbling Insanity.

Sean Hampton I’ve always given HM more credit then just a death doom band . Their riffs / leads / solos have emotion and melody . Really does have a 70s sort of aesthetic to it . Great band . Favorite track: Effigies of Evil.

Wasted Imagine: Off the shoreline, a distant wave is slowly building on the horizon for the duration of this album. The track Evoken Vulgarity bears down and the concluding swirling riff overpowers all coastline civilization.

Drown beneath sunken concrete and crumpled metal... Favorite track: Evoken Vulgarity.

Through the Vortex Macabre The blind dead travel As the evil is unleashed Your weak soul unravels Looming figures of horror The templar knights will rise The absolution of death Becomes your welcomed demise Seeking to destroy the mortal flesh Upon ghoulish steeds they rides Your heart, your breath betray you You can run, but you cannot hide In the Vortex Macabre The ancient templars remain Where horrific apparitions Shall forever reign In the Vortex Macabre The ancient templars remain Where horrific apparitions Shall forever reign Violent forces beyond the dark void Worthless mortals are crushed and destroyed The templar knights have bled, have fought Now in the vortex they eternally rot Vortex macabre Vortex macabre Sightless, heartless creatures From beneath the earth Resurrection through vengeance They seek unholy rebirth The revenge obsessed wraiths Unleash a murderous rage Gruesome nightmares are now reality The blind dead bring endless fatalities In the Vortex Macabre The ancient templars remain Where horrific apparitions Shall forever reign In the Vortex Macabre The ancient templars remain Where horrific apparitions Shall forever reign Vortex macabre Vortex macabre

Savage butchery in a dreary light Slain victims laid to rest in unholy ground Tombs are sealed with the images of man Buried deep, the dead don't make a sound Effigies of evil Have possessed your soul Effigies of evil The ancient are in control Arcane monuments stand guard over decaying flesh Desolate cemetery, where the dead now rot Statues reanimate possessed by the dead Pulsating plasma revives moss-covered stone Effigies of evil Have possessed your soul Effigies of evil The ancient are in control

Stampeding horses, the witchhunter's ride Burnt at the stake is Satan's bride Creatures of the devil die in the fire Sinful flesh consumed on the pyre Black mass, virgin sacrifice Bloody offering to resurrect an evil vice We exist only in hell Consuming, vampiric souls In the dead we dwell Blood drips through the cracks of the tomb Summoning Satan to bring death and doom Shroud of evil, cloaked in darkness Twins seduced by the satanic count Sent by the devil, one of the undead Bloodthirsty vampire from beyond the grave Black mass, virgin sacrifice Bloody offering to resurrect an evil vice We exist only in hell Consuming, vampiric souls In the dead we dwell Stake through the heart and decapitation Brings an end to the servants of Satan Black mass, virgin sacrifice Bloody offering to resurrect an evil vice We exist only in hell Consuming, vampiric souls In the dead we dwell In the dead we dwell

Queen of darkness Meets her mortal fate Close the tomb Before her curse escapes Mummified corpse With the blood of Isis Desecration of the body Can't stop the crisis Queen of evil Queen of serpents Ancient tablets Scribed with curses Queen of evil Inflicting terror Ancient tablets Scribed in gore Rotting relics Keys to resurrection Cobra's poison Spreads infection Force of evil from beyond the grave Moral victims are now her slave Queen of evil Queen of serpents Ancient tablets Scribed with curses Queen of evil Inflicting terror Ancient tablets Scribed in gore Queen of darkness Meets her mortal fate Close the tomb Before the curse escapes Force of evil from beyond the grave Mortal victims are now her slave Queen of evil Queen of serpents Ancient tablets Scribed with curses Queen of evil Inflicting terror Ancient tablets Scribed in gore

Morbid fears trapped inside rotting walls Shrieks of insanity fill cryptic halls Warped vision inside a demented brain Barbaric atrocities of the insane Cursed bloodlines succumb to madness Usher blood tainted with evil Decaying mind obsessed with fear The hour of doom is drawing near House of the damned, house of the cursed "If the house dies, I shall die with it" Behind decrepit walls is where you dwell Held like a prisoner in a living hell Strange afflictions plagued by torment Cracks in the stone where souls lie dormant Bizarre insanity, a twisted soul Tortured existence in a festering hole Entombed in a crypt, sealing your fate Buried alive, you must now escape Impending death consuming your thoughts Surrounded by misery as your mind rots Crumbling insanity, crumbling stones House lies shattered like a pile of bones House of the damned, house of the cursed "If the house dies, I shall die with it"

Infant raised by a pack of wolves Evolving part man, part beast, deranged Wolf blood Full moon summons his urge to kill Doomed by the genome An ancestral curse Legend of the lycanthrope Transmutation under a full moon Deranged wolfman, blood curses howl Ear shattering screams of the fallen victims Enraged lunatic on the prowl Possessed by the wolf Fangs pierce flesh Gore drips from blood-soaked claws Monstrous massacre Growling maniac Throat torn out in the wolfman's jaws Legend of the lycanthrope Summoned into euphoric madness Summoned into euphoric madness
7.
Castle of the devil In human agony you revel Murdered victims are hung and impaled Upon a spike your corpse is nailed Chamber is filled with gruesome devices To satisfy the Baron's sadistic vices A mangled corpse for all to see Torture chamber atrocity "Cursed by a witch... The Baron will suffer a horrible death Burned alive in his chamber of horrors..." Evoken vulgarity Evoken vulgarity Resurrected from the dead By a cursed incantation The evil Baron lives again For torture and mutilation Recite the words by the witching hour Awaken Baron with immortal power From the grave a decomposed body crawls Eerie spectre peers from castle walls Ruthless killer stalking Rotten wounds seep putrid blood The Baron is on a killing spree Torture chamber atrocity Evoken vulgarity Evoken vulgarity

about

Finland’s doom/death-lords Hooded Menace make their Relapse debut with ‘Effigies of Evil’, a brutally ripping album of slow-paced, down-tuned ultra-heaviness. Combining the grooving riffs of Black Sabbath and early Cathedral with the fire of classic Autopsy and Asphyx, ‘Effigies Of Evil’ is an instant metal classic. ‘Effigies Of Evil’ is the peak combination of Hooded Menace’s fascination with classic 90s death metal, prototypical 70s doom and cult horror flicks-----a collection of obsessions that any heavy-music fan proudly wears for life. ‘Effigies of Evil’ is a triumphant album of filth, sludge, riffs and groove that transforms cult heroes Hooded Menace into legitimate heavy metal icons.
