Formed in West Texas nearly two decades ago, Vex’s unique blend of progressive, melodic black and death metal has been described as, “smashing through the boundaries of what it means to be and play not just death metal, but metal as a whole” (Decibel).
The band has released three critically-acclaimed full-length albums, ‘Thanatopsis,’ ‘Memorious,’ and ‘Sky Exile,’ as well as a number of EPs and singles, and has performed/toured internationally with Morbid Angel, Intronaut, Absu, Katatonia, Deicide, Immolation, Goatwhore, and many others. For the band’s most recent release, 2018’s ‘The Machine Shop Sessions,’ Vex brings the raw energy of its live performances to the studio, recording four tracks from its back catalog live and unedited in a single take.Unknown Force Records has now released a physical CD version of the album featuring a special bonus track: the band’s cover version of the Joy Division classic ’24 Hours.’”
