After the much lauded albums "Dawnbearer" and "No Holier Temple" HEXVESSEL's third opus "When We Are Death" marks a turning point on the path the band has walked on so far. Still maintaining the warmth and eccentric peculiarity of the preceding albums, "When We Are Death" offers a combination of magnificent harmonies, organic sound and the outstanding performance of singer Mat McNerney, resulting in 10 highly varied and focused tracks of compact, catchy and soulful psychedelic folk rock.

"When We Are Death" has received excellent reviews:
