HEXED are a Swedish Metal band fronted by the amazing vocalist
The music is a genius blend of thick driving rhythms, melodic guitars and are sometimes progressively orientated, but always with catchy chorus lines and strong powerful female vocals.
HEXED was formed in 2015 by vocalist/songwriter Tina and lead-guitarist/ songwriter Stellan Gunnarsson in Uppsala, Sweden. Both of them played in several bands before and had an early history in the metalscene and of music composing. Now they wanted to create and write music together, something completely new.
They started writing songs and soon they knew exactly what kind of sound they were aiming for. Since both of them had the source of inspiration from bands such as Queensrÿche, Crimson Glory and Pagans Mind they knew that they wanted to create metal music with focus on strong and powerful vocals combined with melodic guitars.
When they had the songs ready and the preproduction was about to start they had to find members who got the qualitys required to setup the band. The driven bassplayer Daniel Håkansson who played earlier in other metal bands, were chosen to take place along with the experienced musician Teddy Möller on drums.
HEXED was now formed and complete as a band.
The debut single and lyric video release ”Dreams” was launched in the beginning of May 2016. Meanwhile the album ”Netherworld” was recorded and produced in 2017, HEXED released their second official musicvideo ”Exhaling Life”.
