Everything Hooded Menace does is of the highest caliber, but 'Never Cross The Dead' is their magnum opus. They never cross the fine line between death and doom. There's a perfect balance of both.
Favorite track: Rituals Of Mortal Cremation.
Crudely melodic at times, Never Cross The Dead is a near perfectly balanced album in the realms of death/doom. Not afraid to ham up the horror movie inserts Hooded Menace manage to weight their bludgeoning riffage with harrowing melodies yet still make you want to tap your foot.
Favorite track: Never Cross The Dead.
