Hexvessel Releases New Video Clip For "His Portal Tomb"

Today, Noisey (Music by VICE) premieres the exclusive new video for Hexvessel's "His Portal Tomb." The song hails from Hexvessel's second and latest album, "No Holier Temple," released last week by Svart Records. "His Portal Tomb" was directed by Marja Konttinen for Brutal Gardener, with source material from "Lot In Sodom" (1933) by James Sibley Watson.

McNerney explains the concept behind the "His Portal Tomb" video: "Images and inscriptions on Egyptian coffins magically place the mummy of the deceased at the centre of a miniature version of the universe. The body as a way in and out of existence. The tomb as a portal. Our mortal prison, where we're to endure the wrath of god and the punishment of angels. Jude 1:7 records that both Sodom and Gomorrah were 'giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.' I wonder what the sarcophagus would tell us, if he could recall his life of earthly pleasures?"

The video for Hexvessel's "His Portal Tomb" can be viewed right here or in the player below. 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."
