Swedish Symphonic Metal quintet Hexed has released their new lyric video and single “Resurrection”, their second from their upcoming album, Pagan’s Rising. The album will arrive on September 30, 2022.
Hexed was formed in 2015 by lead vocalist Tina Gunnarsson and guitarist/vocalist Stellan Gunnarsson in Uppsala, Sweden. Drawing on their previous experiences as members of several different bands in the Swedish Metal music scene they came together with a similar vision of “composing music which was different from what all their peers were currently producing”.
With mutual influences such as Queensrÿche, Crimson Glory and Pagans Mind, it was clear from the beginning that the duo wanted to create heavy music with a focus on strong and powerful vocals combined with heavy melodic guitars. Current band members also include Daniel Håkansson on bass, David Nyman on guitars, and Patrick Wahlberg on drums.
