For Immediate Release:
HEXIS – ABALAM Gets January 11, 2014 Release Date via Halo of Flies
NEW YORK CITY – Since forming in 2010, Copenhagen’s HEXIS has marked Denmark as a premiere source for amazing blackened hardcore. With new full-length ABALAM, the band clearly has no intention of slowing its consistently forward-thinking onslaught of dark, engrossing gems. This benchmark LP will be released by Wisconsin’s HALO OF FLIES and French label MUSICFEARSATAN on January 11, 2014 with a special album release party planned in Hexis’ hometown on that same day. Preorders begin December 13.

For a listening experience akin to consuming, all-encompassing darkness, Abalam is a fitting choice. Hexis on naming the record:
“The demon Abalam is a King of Hell and an assistant to Paimon. He takes possession of a human’s body to encourage the human to commit lust, he would defile humans during the possession and the only way they could escape was death.”

European fans will have the opportunity to see Hexis perform these wicked rituals live as the band will be touring heavily following the release of Abalam, which was recorded and mixed by Lewis Johns and Tony James at The Ranch Production House in England and mastered by Rob Gonnella and Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East.

Featuring artwork designed by Craig Murray, 1000 copies of Abalam will be pressed on 180gram vinyl and distributed by Halo of Flies in the US and MUSICFEARSATAN in Europe: 300 on clear grey, 700 on black.

“…Hexis, a metal band afraid of nothing, from death to grind to gangrenous limbs of BM that rot and decay in favor of… you guessed it: death…
– Tiny Mix Tapes

Hexis are intensity incarnate, unleashing an all-out assault on the senses… …The Danes’ searing, dissonant blackened hardcore is a sound unparalleled and rightfully so.”
– CVLT Nation

Hexis’ sound is a stark and uncompromising one, taking in the cold atmospheres of black metal and welding them onto a confrontational hardcore shell. he quintet have been refining their sound over a steady course of EPs since 2011, and are now truly a force to be reckoned with.
– Terrorizer
