Hexvessel biography
Hexvessel is a Finish group led by English immigrant Mat ?Kvohst? McNerney. They play Gothic style of psychedelic folk rock, with wide ranging influences including early PINK FLOYD, HAWKWIND, AMON DUUL II, and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, among many others. A pagan, nature centered vibe is discerned even through the occasionally metallic threads, and instrumentation is as varied as that implies. Recommended for fans of COMUS, ESPERS, CHANGES, PROMETHEAN or WOVENHAND.

Review by paulermauler02

5 stars This album is a mystical trip to the deep secrets of the forest, where spiritual existence is a dominating power. Hexvessel have a personal style, composing music that is dreamlike, and transport you to a world of sorcerers. Their mellow, gloomy and illusory atmosphere is achieved with very original musical style, that successfully combine elements of medieval secular music with progressive rock music and psychedelia, coming up with a purely unique sound that reflects the magic and deep mystical power of nature. In more musical detail, instrumentation, use of harmony, vocal technique and texture all play a central role in creating the unique style in Dawnbearer. For me, the main recipe is the mellow, deep timbre of the vocals and the guitar, that are carefully placed on the slightly detuned character of all the instruments, that create this ultimately mellow, harmonious coexistence with nature, or more like being part of it. The modal melodies that can be found, along with the fiddle-like sound of violins, which are put against a sweet, vintage mellotron sound, successfully create the wanted soundscape. Finally, the lyrics also reflect the atmosphere, which all have a middle-ages forest myth character. Generally a very unique album, which is perfect for fans of folk rock music, 60's psychedelia, prog rock, and generally all fans of good unique music.

3 stars *I originally wrote this for powerofmetal.dk*

Hexvessel. The name implies much, and I have to admit that they deliver pretty much what I expected. This Finnish band plays what they call "psychedelic neo-folk" or "psychedelic forest folk". Either way, it is meant to be straight-up weird. This certainly is the case.

Yet, I cannot help but like their new EP, "Iron Marsh". As a companion piece to their latest album, "No Holier Temple", it definitely has a sort of addicting quality to it. I'll be honest: I heard it once, and I disliked it. I heard it twice, and I was somewhat impressed. I heard it again, and I was singing along with the choruses. "Iron Marsh" has a way of doing this to you. As a fairly short EP, "Iron Marsh" just works. The creepy atmospheres are combined with jingles and jangles, tribal beats, and melancholy soundscapes. Sure, they break into a 70s- style rock beat sometimes, but this band usually stays in their own little world. The vox are quite good, and feature both male and female vocalists. I must say, though, that I prefer the female vocalist that is prevalent throughout the last half of the EP. Either way, they both have good voices and harmonize beautifully.

Hexvessel is really weird. Their lyrical content is downright depressing and creepy, but the music grows on you and gets a kind of nostalgic quality to it. I think my favorite song is "Women of Salem", and I'll let you guess what the topic is. Weird lyrics aside, this band is definitely enjoyable. Strange. .
