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 metal scene 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 Bass player Daniel Håkansson who played earlier in other metal bands, were chosen to take place along with the experienced musician Teddy Möller on drums.
In 2018 Teddy left the drums to be the second guitarist
along with Stellan. Simon Aspsund took over the role as the new drummer in Hexed.
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 music video EXHALING LIFE. This song and video contains guestvocals from Thomas Vikström and it is filmed and produced by the talented Magnus Ewald who also produced videos for Liv Sin, Crucified Barbara, Firespawn etc.
The interest and response for HEXED after the releases has been overwhelming. HEXED got several proposals to consider and are proud for the decision to sign with Thomas Hörnkvist at VICISOLUM PRODUCTIONS. This Swedish label already have several established bands in its row, such as Persefone, Loch Vostok, Divine Ascension.
