It’s very rare to come across a band like Hex who’re doing something innovative and at the same time not compromising on the heaviness. After a couple of atmospheric death/doom metal releases in Chalice of Suffering and Illimitable Dolor, it’s time to delve into something that’s intense and crushing. There are various facets to this but instead of revealing them all, it’s best that you discover them for yourself.


HEX (Spain) – ‘God Has No Name’ (July 5th, 2019)

Genre – Death/Doom Metal
Release Date – July 5th, 2019
Record Label – Transcending Obscurity Records


Spain’s best kept secret, Hex, return with a pummelling new full length of death/doom metal music with unconventional riffing and delivery. This is mid-paced death/doom metal that is reminiscent of early Runemagick, Bolt Thrower, Paradise Lost, Hypocrisy and Unleashed. But there’s more than meets the eye, as the music is interspersed with exotic riffing, female vocals, interludes and even breakdowns. There’s a certain appeal to their music that makes it stand out from the derivative lot as this doesn’t owe too much to any particular style or band. It’s a cohesive fusion of various influences melded into a sound that Hex can now call their own. With members of experienced bands in the lineup such as Virulency, Tomb, Incursed, to name a few, the outcome is simply phenomenal. The fiercely titled release ‘God Has No Name’ will go down as the breakthrough album for the band and perhaps even the whole of the current death/doom style with the band’s innovative and thoughtful approach towards it.
