“Into the darkness. Darkness amidst the ice. Darkness amidst the grey days. Darkness warping every note and sound. Cold isolation. Frozen warnings. Hexis makes hardcore drained of machismo and the warmth of human companionship. There is no celebration, no brotherhood, no cathartic violence. Hexis makes black metal that pays no allegiance to deities or archetypes, black metal that is immersed in the foul grit of the human condition. All you are left with is your own pointless thoughts being battered blind by this overwhelming force of sound. Every note on “XI” is blown out and damaged beyond repair, sonics pushed into abusive levels. Strings breaking. Vocals emanating from your buried, atavistic lizard brain. Contempt and pity at the same time. From Copenhagen, did you even have to ask?” – M. Moyer
