Hexvessel Streaming New Song "A Letter In Birch Bark"

Today HeathenHarvest.org premieres the second new Hexvessel track, "A Letter in Birch Bark." The track hails from Hexvessel's forthcoming second album, "No Holier Temple," set for release on September 7th via Svart Records. Check out the song at this location.

The new album's front cover (below) is by the artist Bastian Kalous and represents the reverence to the native forest and nature that Hexvessel wishes to raise awareness and preservation of. The themes of the album "are inspired by the work of great men like Scottish-American naturalist and preservationist John Muir and more recent radical environmental advocates Dave Foreman and Howie Wolke," discussing the definition of what makes something holy and sacred.

Frontman and founder Mat McNerney says of the album: “The songs were written specifically to be channeled by a group. This is the sound of a cult, all focused on summoning the same magic, joined in prayer, haunted by the same demons. We actively pushed for a new way to evolve our sound. I purposely strove to make this album a calculated move-on from Dawnbearer. This isn't about using symbols of the occult. This is about a way of living that returns the old gods to their rightful place. We're a family that worships nature through word and sound. We hope you will join us."

The new album's track listing is as follows:

1. Heaven and Earth Magic 1.31
2. Woods to Conjure 4.05
3. Wilderness Is 1.31
4. A Letter in Birch Bark 4.32
5. His Portal Tomb 10.10
6. Elegy to Goyahkla 1.25
7. Are You Coniferous 2.37
8. Sacred Marriage 7.55
9. Dues to the Dolmen 4.28
10. Unseen Sun 13.22
11. Your Head is Reeling 4.25
