Hexvessel - "Billion Year Old Being" (video)

Το βίντεο των Hexvessel για το "Billion Year Old Being" από το album "Kindred"
You can find my signs in this paradise
Where myriad the mornings shined
That I have hardly dreamed of
Through a hallucinary spell of time

A place where hunter gatherers
Gathered in their grave-house
My name was spoken on the wind
That blew away the sun

Billion year old being!

Statues planes and skyscrapers
are underneath the seas and rivers
I emerge up from the seams of fate
to sew my secrets in the dirt

Then all the temples to the elements
will be made from human skeletons
turning in the universe
Like the moon around the earth

Billion year old being!

Rise rise my spirit rise
shine a light over fields of fire

Sing sing my spirit sing
over woodland glade and mountain spring

How soon the sun can turn the hands of time
and the cupstone flows with sacrifice
tempered skin into beaten drum
woodland bones ring out
with trumpet voice

Hawks ascend out of the open graves
hand-made hills carved out of dead sand
sacred are our waters no frost could still
cloven myths shape the sun-cross of life


Δελτίο τύπου: «Psychedelic forest folk-rockers Hexvessel release their new nature-mystic opus, Kindred, via Svart Records.

Taking a darker and more esoteric path, Kindred sees Hexvessel re-forge their eclectic melting cauldron or “vessel” of sound into a potent “hex” of spell-binding songcraft.

Blues-laden psych-rock and progressive structures harken back to King Crimson, giving way to dark earthen balladry reminiscent of early Nick Cave and the doom-laden atmospheres of Dead Can Dance.

The band returned to their original studio in Tampere, Finland, where they recorded their cult classic No Holier Temple, which fused Hexvessel’s folk roots with an occult undercurrent, with the new album mastered by John Davis (The Killers / Gorillaz / Led Zeppelin / Lana Del Rey) in the UK.

Through Kindred’s 10 song rites of passage, Hexvessel cover Coil’s Fire Of The Mind live from a mental institution and delve into the Druidic sacrificial swamps with songs like Bog Bodies, which conjures the deep Lynchian night with muted trumpet and foggy rhodes piano.

Adorned by cover artwork by artists Thomas Hooper (who has worked for Neurosis, Converge and Doomriders) and Richey Beckett (who has created work for Metallica, Foo Fighters, Robert Plant), Kindred is an album which calls you on a journey, both intimate and richly enlightening.

Kindred is Hexvessel’s 5th album, and a return to Svart Records, where they released their debut album Dawnbearer to critical and cult acclaim 10 years ago. Hexvessel was formed by English/Irish singer/songwriter Mat McNerney in 2009 after he moved to Finland.

Also known for his work with Beastmilk (now known as Grave Pleasures), The Deathtrip, guest spots with Carpenter Brut and Me & That Man and his earlier work with Norwegian Black Metal bands Code & Dødheimsgard, McNerney is a both highly eclectic and critically acclaimed musical artist.

Across the years, it is McNerney’s work with Hexvessel which has been his most brave, exploratory, honest and impossible to categorise, unique and idiosyncratic in a world all of their own.»

Bio: «Formed in 2009 by Mat "Kvohst" McNerney, Hexvessel write songs in the oral tradition of the old balladeers. They weave everyman stories that create a bond between the teller and the audience, bringing alive a sense of shared purpose and spiritual history.

With wife and collaborator Marja Konttinen, like-minded troubadour and co-writer Kimmo Helén, guitarist Jesse Heikkinen, the primal rhythms of Jukka Rämänen (Dark Buddha Rising), and the occult found-sounds of Antti Haapapuro (Aural Hypnox/Arktau Eos), Mat McNerney’s Hexvessel has truly become a melting cauldron or “vessel,” a potent “hex” of spellwork.

By drawing on older folk acts like Shirley Collins,Vashti Bunyan, later folk rock bands such as Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention and King Crimson, to more recent artists such as Current93, Nick Cave and Coil, imbued with Karelian and Nordic folklore rhythms, Hexvessel have created a sound that is both ancient and modern.

Hexvessel is about connection and roots, bringing the spirits of the past that we all share to a more mystical and fulfilling vision of the future.»
