Swaying as a slow ride through canyons of the North American desert, Hex is the album of Earth metamorphosis. Given the task of erecting sonic walls to their followers Sunn O))), Dylan Carlson's band abandons distortions and creates a sonic landscape where arpeggios dilated themselves to become daze vibrations. It’s music that generates mental associations with boundless and wild spaces of old western movies – affinity with Dead Man soundtrack by Neil Young is barely evident! – but it goes so further beyond normal sensorial perception that it results almost metaphysic. Hex ventures unexplored territories, where the blow of the wind and the howl of the wolves seem to hand down ancient Indian legends. Psychedelic and spiritual, Earth compose what could be properly considered the new millennium heir of The End (The Doors).
