Black/Folk Metallers Hexenklad Release new video for the new song”Return”!

The story of Canadian blackened folk metallers Hexenklad began with the planting of a seed, an idea: to create a band that was as deep in meaning and feeling as it was heavy and aggressive in sound. Over time, this seed grew to envelope the forest floor, sprouting new life in its terrestrial journey. Of interesting note, the band features within its ranks both father and son – the old, wisdom-endowed seed and seedling, working together to germinate this Northern boreal with new life. Out of this was born ”Spirit Of The Stone”, the band’s debut album.

Release date for ”Spirit of the Stonewas is July 28th 2017 via CDN Records in CD/digital format. Pre Orders can be made here.

About Hexenklad:

Its branches spread in late 2015 with the addition of guitarist JohnThe Ancient OneChalmers (Pagan Ritual), who helped round out the music. In 2016, after having recorded the drums for the new album ”Spirit of the Stone ”, Sterling Dale left Hexenklad and TimothyVoldamaresJohnston (Eclipse Eternal) joined as vocalist, who expanded the sound still further. With the vision of the album and band now fully formed, comrades were called upon to complete the recordings. Alex Snape (Unbowed) did a guest appearance to add his signature bass sound, while guest cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne (The Visit, Musk Ox) added his wizardry to several tracks. Now-permanent member Clare B. (Eclipse Eternal, ex-Operus) deepened the sound with keyboards to put the final touches to the tapestry. Having now completed the debut album”Spirit of the Stone”, Hexenklad branched out again, growing this time to include new permanent members Jon Kal (Pagan Ritual) on bass and Andrew C. (Pagan Ritual) on drums.

Co-created by guitarist Michael Grund (SIG:AR:TYR, ex-Battlesoul) and drummer Sterling Dale, Hexenklad’s roots sunk down after Grund made the drastic decision to move to the forests of Bancroft, Ontario, leaving city life and materialism behind. With this mental shift in place, and with the first two Hexenklad songs composed in those very woods, Hexenklad was born: a melodic, folk-inspired black metal band with thematic leanings towards nature, a respect for magick and ancient religions, and personal enlightenment and freedom.
