Hex’s eponymous debut album is drawn into hair-raising synths and jarring industrial sounds. A limited vocal presence puts the music in the forefront, as stretches of uninterrupted jamming are the norm. Once these songs get into a particular mindset, where every member of the band is involved as a collective group, it leads to a hypnotic effect.
Sometimes this singular unit takes a few minutes to develop, as “Metaheaven” and “Highrise” can attest to. Then there’s “Collider,” where the spacey leap starts in the initial seconds without subsiding. This album is best experienced with a person’s undivided attention, where the electro nuances become more visible.
