In collaboration with webzine No Clean Singing, HEXIS premieres a fourth song from their forthcoming album, “Aeternum“. ‘Amissus‘ is a sinister and tension-ridden crusher, perfectly representing the band’s explosive mix of Hardcore, Sludge and Black Metal. Check the track and an eerie visualizer created by Riivata Visuals below:
No Clean Singing editor Islander describes the new composition:
“You will see that the lyrics of the song that rip through the throat like knives are harrowing, as is the accompanying visual imagery, and the music is every bit as lacerating. Viscerally powerful, emotionally shattering, and mentally broiling, the song isn’t soon forgotten.“
Frontman Filip comments on ‘Amissus‘:
“We felt that this track is adding something to the mix which the other three unveiled songs (‘Divinitas‘, ‘Exhaurire‘ & ‘Nunquam‘) did not show. ‘Divinitas‘ and ‘Nunquam‘ are faster and more straight to the point. ‘Exhaurire‘ is a slow one and, furthermore, a very long track, especially for HEXIS. ‘Amissus‘, however, felt like a good pick since it is a mid-tempo composition. Of course, the other tracks on the record still display different aspects of our sound which we could not highlight by revealing four of twelve tracks. There is obviously a lot to be discovered by the listener. This album is much more diverse compared to all our previous works. But with these four singles we are showing what we want to demonstrate the most!
Also, during our tour through Canada this June and July, we actually played ‘Amissus‘ every night. The reaction was always good. It is kind of a ‘weird’ track for us to play live, exactly because of the unusual tempo for HEXIS. But the audience seemed to enjoy it and it definitely works well to get peoples’ heads moving!“
“Aeternum” will be released via Debemur Morti Productions on CD, tape, vinyl and digital with fitting merch on August 26th. Pre-orders for the album are possible from the label’s EU, US and Bandcamp shops.
HEXIS emerged in Denmark in the year 2010, following the DIY-spirit of the Punk and Hardcore scene, while simultaneously being deeply rooted in the Black Metal sound. They are self-made as well as self-taught, and HEXIS are constantly travelling the world. With over 700 shows from the Faroe Islands to New Zealand and from Cuba to Mongolia under their belt, these guys have been the archetype of a hard-working and hard-hitting band.
Combining the energy of Hardcore with the desolation of Black Metal and throwing in bits and pieces of Doom and Sludge, HEXIS have crafted two full-length albums, namely “Abalam” (2014) and “Tando Ashanti” (2017), as well as countless EPs and Split-releases. The musicians behind HEXIS are located all over Europe and they have been praised for both their outstanding records and, first and foremost, for their intense live shows that took them to high ranking festivals such as Roskilde, Bloodstock, Roadburn or Ieper Fest.
HEXIS have inked a deal with Debemur Morti Productions in 2020 and will release their third album in 2022.
