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.

FUNERAL MIST set release date for new NOEVDIA album! Full- Album Stream


Today, Norma Evangelium Diaboli announces June 15th as the international release date for Funeral Mist‘s massively anticipated third album, Hekatomb.

Each new album by Funeral Mist, a band whose origins date back to the mid ’90s, is the equivalent of an earthquake, a devastation of biblical proportions. Salvation, released in 2003, was the epitome of frantic, hostile fanaticism. Maranatha, released in 2009, reeked of an all-engulfing decadence. Hekatomb builds on these grandiose fondations with decrepit odes, comparable to none but Funeral Mist. The intensity of the album is matched in uniqueness only by its odd structures, born from the deranged mind of a madman, and the haunting melodies that float eerily among the possessed voices of the damned are of a kind, once heard, never to be forgotten again.

Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
