Hexvessel Releases New Music Video For "Sacred Marriage"

After posting the video for "His Portal Tomb," Hexvessel has teamed up with Noisey (Music by VICE) to premiere a video for "Sacred Marriage." Check out the clip here or in the player below.

The song hails from Hexvessel's second and latest album, "No Holier Temple," released last month by Svart Records. "Sacred Marriage" was directed by Justin Oakey for Burial Offerings, with production design by Amanda Row and Cait Lusk as Director of Photography. Oakey explains the concept behind the "Sacred Marriage" video:

"'Sacred Marriage' is a departure from the darkness of the previous Hexvessel videos, with more of an emphasis on love, innocence, and self-discovery, through encounters with the gods and goddesses of a lush and plentiful natural world. Collaborating with Hexvessel is always a rewarding experience. I'm always open to working with new artists who want to explore the philosophies behind their music and create something unique and engaging."

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."
