VAINOLAINEN (SVART RECORDS)
To celebrate Hexvessel's appearance at the Roadburn 2012 festival we present this special 7" inch piece of wax.
It features two songs previously only available on compilation CDs. "Vainolainen", inspired by the works of Aino Kallas, was originally released on "Werewolf Songs" in the winter of 2012.
On side B there's "Preacher's Orchard", the first published Hexvessel song, from "Death Aesthetics".
The vinyl is limited to 700 copies on black wax. Hexvessel is a psychedelic folk-rock band from Finland that was founded by Englishman Mat "Kvohst" McNerney, vocalist for blackmetal bands D¢dheimsgard and Code.
He moved to Finland in 2009 and was joined by a coven of musicians from Tampere that feature members of Galacticka and Dark Buddha Rising.
Fusing late 1960s and early 1970s English folk and psychedelia with a love for Finnish nature, pagan mysticism, folklore and the occult, they play a witches brew of acoustic balladry and heavy tripped-out atmospherics.
