TesseracT Premiere New Music Video For “Hexes”


TesseracT, the popular UK progressive metal band, has released a music video for their song “Hexes.” The track appeared on last year’s Polaris. Part sci-fi experiment, part dreamscape, the video is an artistic experiment that attempts to explore the annals of the mind.

The band worked on the video with a production company called Blacktide, and had this to say about the clip:

“On first contact with Blacktide we knew that we had found the right team. The video was shot over four different locations scattered across the UK including Leicester’s National Space Centre, where we filmed some striking footage from inside a replica of the Columbus module from the International Space Station; shot in the early hours while the centre was closed to the public.

“Without a doubt ‘Hexes’ is the most cohesive and impactful video we have made to date and we’re extremely proud of the end result.”

Though Daniel Tompkins has assumed the reigns once again when it comes to vocals, TesseracT’s music continues to maintain the much more melodic angle that was brought to the table when Ashe O’Hara joined back in 2013. Personally, I wish they would get heavier again — I miss the days of One, and Tompkins can really scream — but I can see the appeal of their current direction. It’s tailored towards a much wider audience.
