Combining the gloomy and drudging sensitivities of doom metal with the horror movie atmosphere of death metal, the Finland-based fiends in Hooded Menace have been conjuring demons and possessing souls with their hypnotic brand of miserable sound since 2007 and their latest album, Effigies of Evil(out now on Relapse Records, order here), does no different. Recently crafted into video format is the track “Crumbling Insanity”. Directed by Justin Oakey AKA Burial Offerings, the video is based off of the Edgar Allen Poe classic, “The Fall of The House of Usher”. I can’t say that I’m familiar with the story but the video is pretty sweet, There are some crows, anti-christian images, hooded figures, cemeteries creepy tomes, and fire, all shown with a killer soundtrack to boot, a jolly good time for the whole family. Peep the video below.
