HEXVESSEL - New Video Released

Finnish forest folk band Hexvessel have released a music video for the single "Changeling" taken from their fourth studio album, All Tree, which was released on 15th February via their own imprint Secret Trees, in an exclusive partnership with Century Media and Prophecy Productions.
The song features guest vocals from Neige from Alcest and prog legend Dirk Chapman from Uriel/Arzachel/Egg/National Health on flute. The video was directed by Vesa Ranta and Aapo Lahtela for Kaira Films and you can watch it in the player below.
Mat McNerney from Hexvessel says: "The song is about change, be it growing up from childhood to adulthood or hearing the call of a vocation you feel compelled to undertake. Metamorphosis in the knowledge that, in the spirit of Kinky Friedman's "find what you love and let it kill you", there may never be a way back. Irreversible transformation. I think that's kind of my interpretation of Metsänpeitto (which literally means "covered by the forest"), the Finnish folklore phenomenon, where people went missing in the forest for unexplained reasons. Once the call of the forest gets in your blood, you never truly belong to the man-made world again, and you're never coming back. Eventually the forest draws you back home. This same myth, in various forms, also exists in Irish folklore with "changeling children" for example, who were switched by the fairies in infancy. The mythology of my upbringing, and of the country I have settled in, converging together into our "wyrd-folk" story. We are also especially honored to have our dear brother Neige from Alcest on guest vocals and Dirk Chapman on flute for this song."
Hexvessel are currently on tour through Europe and will make an appearance at Roadburn on 11th April 2019. Link
