Hexenklad - "Heathenheart" (album stream)

Ο δίσκος των Hexenklad "Heathenheart"
Οι Hexenklad μας έρχονται από τον Καναδά, δημιουργήθηκαν προ επταετίας και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

«Hexenklad is a Canadian Folk/Black Metal band. Think folk melodies akin to Moonsorrow with twin guitar leads like Dissection, the depth of emotion of Primordial and the overwhelming depth of Insomnium.»

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους ("Spirit of the Stone" ο πρώτος το 2017) με τον δεύτερο και πλέον πρόσφατο να φέρει τον τίτλο "Heathenheart"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hexenklad (ft. members of SIG:AR:TYR, Eclipse Eternal, Pagan Ritual) has a new album “Heathenheart” coming out, one that will surely tantalize the ears of any metalhead who enjoys both harsh, raw black metal and the uplifting, catchy aspects of folk metal.

The lyrical content on the album is varied, some of it is about the old gods in the old world and some of it plays into Johnston’s heathen beliefs. Regardless of the subject matter, the music itself is interesting and intense and flows well.

Anyone who appreciates both folk and black metal and even just melodic metal will find something compelling in these songs. “Hexenklad” will surely surprise a lot of people, especially those already familiar with the band. For such an intense album it is also a very uplifting, meaningful record and that is a rare thing and much needed right now.

According to the band, one of the beautiful things about having so many members is that they never go through a drought of ideas; songs can start as one person’s idea and by the end, they become a mix of everyone’s. They have lots more music brewing in our minds for the future. Easily enough for another album. Hexenklad is recommended for fans of Ensiferum, Insomnium and Windir.»
