Tampere, Finland-based folk metallers HEXVESSEL have released a video for the track 'Masks Of The Universe', featured on the band's recently released Iron Marsh EP, available via Svart Records.
Frontman/mastermind Mat McNerney explains of the epic 13-minute video, "[Carl] Sagan said: 'Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognise our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual.' Space is the true occult, beyond knowledge or experience. Space scientists and explorers are the modern day wizards and shamans, peering into the heavens and hells of other worlds to give us a glimpse through the fabric of time and dimensions."
