HEXVESSEL Release Video for ‘Changeling’


Forest Folk band HEXVESSEL are proud to unveil a brand new music video for the single ‘Changeling’ taken from their fourth studio album “All Tree”, which is released today.You can watch the video for ‘Changeling’ here: https://youtu.be/UsDnnk_qcTs

The song features guest vocals from Neige from Alcest (FR) and prog legend Dirk Chapman from Uriel/Arzachel/Egg/National Health on flute. The video was directed by Vesa Ranta and Aapo Lahtela for Kaira Films.

Mat McNerney from HEXVESSEL says, “The song is about change, be it growing up from childhood to adulthood or hearing the call of a vocation you feel compelled to undertake. Metamorphosis in the knowledge that, in the spirit of Kinky Friedman’s “find what you love and let it kill you,” there may never be a way back. Irreversible transformation. I think that’s kind of my interpretation of Metsänpeitto (which literally means “covered by the forest”), the Finnish folklore phenomenon, where people went missing in the forest for unexplained reasons. Once the call of the forest gets in your blood, you never truly belong to the man-made world again, and you’re never coming back. Eventually the forest draws you back home. This same myth, in various forms, also exists in Irish folklore with “changeling children” for example, who were switched by the fairies in infancy. The mythology of my upbringing, and of the country I have settled in, converging together into our “wyrd-folk” story. We are also especially honoured to have our dear brother Neige from Alcest on guest vocals and Dirk Chapman on flute for this song.”

While the North American release of “All Tree” will be on 22 February via Prophecy Productions, the album is out as of today in the rest of the world via Century Media Records.

GHOST: The four former Ghouls lost the trial Against Tobias Forge


According the Linköping NewsThe four former members of Ghost lost the dispute against the band’s front figure and therefore also face the costs of more than 1.3 million.

The ex- ghouls have to pay their own fees of about 3 million kr (335,000 USD) plus 1,3 million kr (145,000 USD) of Tobias Forge’s fees, which makes roughly 120,000 $ each.

Forge had claimed compensation for over 2 million kr, but the judge rules that about 700,000 kr were unnecessary costs and nothing that the ex-members

should pay, so Forge ends up paying also about 80,000 $.

“TF has claimed compensation of SEK 2,025,053 including VAT, of which SEK 1 782 893 pertains to lawyer fee, SEK 50 000 TF’s work and SEK 192,160 expenses and costs.
