Hail The Goer

All I really feel like I can say about We Are Hex is that they’re dirty. No, not in a Cinemax-after-midnight sort of way, but in the sense that they’re not concerned about sounding polished or refined or even particularly well rehearsed. Trust me, I mean this in a good way. Songs like the album closer “Cutter/Giver” and “Birthplace Of The Mystics” have an amazingly raw tone to them that perfectly compliments the band’s pure, unprocessed energy.
I’d imagine that the absolute best way to experience them would be live, at a basement show, packed in with as many other fans as you can possibly fit in a house without it resulting in mass crushing-related deaths. It’d probably also make a great soundtrack to the best horror movie that has yet to be made.
I imagine that Hail the Goer would appeal to just about anyone with some familiarity with the post-hardcore scene. Chaotic stops and starts, amazing and often harsh female vocals backed by creepier male voices, and an overall raw, compelling sound make this a worthwhile and interesting release.
