Danish propagators of blackened hardcore Hexis are coming back!

Monday 27 February 2023

HEXIS are touring New Zealand in April 2023 for the first time since bashing the eardrums of local gig-goers back in 2016. Praised as their finest release to date, HEXIS traverse scorched realms of hardcore, black metal, doom and sludge on their skull-trepanning latest long player Aeternum. Arising Scandinavia's extreme music community in 2010, the relentlessly productive group have played more than 800 live shows and unleashed five studio albums so far, plus numerous EP / single releases.

HEXIS emerged in Denmark in the year 2010, following the DIY-spirit of the Punk and Hardcore scene, while simultaneously being deeply rooted in the Black Metal sound. They are self-made as well as self-taught, and HEXIS are constantly travelling the world. With over 800 shows from the Faroe Islands to New Zealand and from Cuba to Mongolia under their belt, these guys have been the archetype of a hard-working and hard-hitting band.

Combining the energy of Hardcore with the desolation of Black Metal and throwing in bits and pieces of Doom and Sludge, HEXIS have crafted two full-length albums, namely Abalam (2014) and Tando Ashanti (2017), as well as countless EPs and Split-releases. The musicians behind HEXIS are located all over Europe and they have been praised for both their outstanding records and, first and foremost, for their intense live shows that took them to high ranking festivals such as Roskilde, Bloodstock, Roadburn or Ieper Fest.
