About this album

This album is a mystical trip to the deep secrets of the forest, where spiritual existence is a dominating power. Hexvessel have a personal style, composing music that is dreamlike, and transport you to a world of sorcerers. Their mellow, gloomy and illusory atmosphere is achieved with very original musical style, that successfully combine elements of medieval secular music with progressive rock music and psychedelia, coming up with a purely unique sound that reflects the magic and deep mystical power of nature. In more musical detail, instrumentation, use of harmony, vocal technique and texture all play a central role in creating the unique style in Dawnbearer. The main recipe is the mellow, deep timbre of the vocals and the guitar, that are carefully placed on the slightly detuned character of all the instruments, that create this ultimately mellow, harmonious coexistence with nature, or more like being part of it. The modal melodies that can be found, along with the fiddle-like sound of violins, which are put against a sweet, vintage mellotron sound, successfully create the wanted soundscape. Finally, the lyrics also reflect the atmosphere, which all have a middle-ages forest myth character. Generally a very unique album, which is perfect for fans of folk rock music, 60’s psychedelia, prog rock, and generally all fans of good unique music.
