Hexivoid are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a cosmic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Disdain From A Burning Cosmos" which was released by AHPN Records.
A very dark, heavy and dissonant sound starts off the album while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams. A decent amount of melody can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with the solos and leads being done in a very distorted yet melodic style when they are utilized.
At times the music gets very experimental sounding along with all of the drum beats being programmed. Keyboards can also be heard briefly while the songs stick to mostly a slow or mid tempo direction as well as the vocals also using a depressive tone at times and as the album progresses a brief use of melodic vocals can also be heard and on the closing track a small amount of clean playing can also be heard.
Hexivoid plays a style of cosmic black metal that is very dissonant, experimental and void summoning. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover cosmic, depravity and isolation themes.
In my opinion Hexivoid are a very great sounding cosmic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dissonant Void Howling Forth" "They Who Burned Themselves For Peace" and "Disdain From A Burning Cosmos". 8 out of 10.
