Following up the release of the first part of the band’s multifarious new work (comprised of the “Kingdom of Horrors” CD album, “Realm of Tragedy” instrumental CD album and “Bowels of Madness” paperback novella), it is now time for the second part to be unleashed.
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.

Swedish metallists Carry The Torch sign to the new record label.
The band were formed in 2010-2011, but didn’t start writing music seriously before 2016. The inspiration for the music they make comes from everyday life and a lot of musical influences from all over the world. For the band these days, it’s all about having fun with music but still pushing themselves to the limit, this is their mantra and main reason to continue and evolve. They wanna be the best Carry The Torch they can be and nothing less than that.
