Friday Freebie – Häxmästaren

Häxmästaren Gothenburg’s stoner/doom/sludge behemoths join Majestic Mountain Records for the full Majestic treatment on the vinyl release of their explosive sophomore album Sol I Exil! The test pressing has already been approved and the album will be available in August!

Häxmastaren had the following to say about joining the Majestic Mountain Crew:
“Häxmästaren is insanely proud and excited to be a part of the wondrous Majestic Mountain Family. With such an amazing roster, nothing short of magic is bound to happen! Follow the smoke to the riff-filled lands!”

Häxmästaren set the month of March on fire with the digital release of Sol I Exil, an album that can only be described as a flaming sledgehammer of stoner doom and blackened sludge, banging hard with breakneck riffage, searing solos and a swinging groove that traverses the line between old school doom and a punishing death metal attack on the senses. An absolutely relentless release with surging energy and a heavy metal sensibility that always circles back to deep, sludgy doom roots and a plethora of vocal approaches ranging from guttural growls to the hallowed howls of the damned and we’re given the full dazzle with even a bit of their Swedish mother tongue on the title track and you’ll find no shortage of raucous, rumbling basslines, thunderous percussion, and ferocious guitars cleverly melodied into a fast and loose display of heavily brooding power.


Gaining rave reviews and a #9 placing on the Doom Charts, Häxmästaren has been on Majestic’s radar for a long while now, and with this stellar release the move was made and the deal was struck to give Sol I Exil the full Majestic vinyl release treatment and we are thrilled to welcome Häxmästaren to the Majestic Mountain Crew!
Stay tuned for more information about this killer release and in the meantime, here are a bunch of Bandcamp codes for you all to enjoy! This one goes to 11!!

Here’s what some of our fellow contributors had to say:

Häxmästaren have decided to leave their mark upon the world! The album takes us by assault right from the start with monstrous sludgy stoner metal grooves. It’s one fucking riff after another. They grab hold of you while the bass is busy walloping you and whilst the drum pummels us slyly. It’s a blissful aggression and what can we do if not ask for more!!! Favorite track: Wavelurker.
~MARC-ERIC GAGNON

Sol i Exil assaults us with bludgeoning tone, metallic groove, and neck breaking energy. The Stoner/doom runs thick flowing into a current of sludge and brimming with melodic Scandinavian grit.
~BUCKY BROWN

Häxmästaren’s grooves sit precariously on that line that separates the extreme from the traditional, a balancing act that could go either way at any moment.
