Hexa Mera Streams New Song With 13 Guest Vocalists

Belgian modern melodic death metal group Hexa Mera today unleashes a video for the song "Union," taken from second full-length album "Enlightenment," which will be released on March 31st. The track features 13 (!) guest vocalists from multiple renowned Belgian metal bands and can be heard below.

"Enlightenment" includes Peggy Meeussen (Bliksem), Ron Bruynseels (Bark / Hard Resistance), Steven Van Crombruggen (Off The Cross), Dries Monsieurs (Moments), Ad De Wachter (Moker), Wim Jacobs (Crimson Falls), Dafus (Growing Horns), Koen Dils (Predatoria), Piet Overstijns (Dyscordia), Filip Lemmens (FireForce), K (Spankraght), Peter De Bondt (Royal Jake) and Thomas Marijsse (Basement Critters).

Hexa Mera comments: "This is a song about our shared passion: metal. Being able to create music with our best friends is an amazing privilege and we love it. That’s what Union is about. It’s a special song on the album: it has a different feel, and was approached differently in terms of songwriting. It’s not your typical Hexa Mera song, and that’s what makes it unique. That’s what makes it stand out. But it deserved a little push to have more impact.

"We wanted to make everyone feel what we felt while we were writing it. So we invited other vocalists to participate. To celebrate metal together in a maelstrom of screams, growls and grunts. We wanted to show that diversity in metal is something to be proud of, something to be cherished. There’s no limits in metal, there are no barriers. Sub-genre labeling is hitting an absurd level of dividing the metal scene. Fuck that. Let’s embrace our differences and create something that brings us all together. In metal we are friends, we are allies. In metal we are one. In metal we are union!"
