HEXIS: XI: LP

Dark doom hardcore metal out of Denmark rises forth from Hexis. The striking, minimalist black and white matte LP cover is desolate and beautiful. Rapid fire bass drum and throbbing bass pummel your ears to submission. Slow-churning at first, the record ebbs then whips to a straight-up frenzy, somehow completely controlled and absolutely chaotic at the same time. The metallic guitar weaves broad-knife strokes into fine needle-like scratches. It’s still melodic, but fierce. Layered on top like toxic ooze are abrasive, harsh, throat-tearing vocals. It’s the hard metal edge of Iron Lung and melodic undertones Una Bestia Incontrolable. It’s pure rage.
