The Great Wilderness #3 - Hexagon

Facebook / thegreatwildernessband.com

I'm a little late to this, hardly a surprise there. Costa Rica's The Great Wilderness released their latest single "Hexagon" earlier this month, the second track taken from their forthcoming debut LP and is currently available as a free download via Bandcamp. The album is said to follow on November 15th and is definitely one to look out for as this and earlier single, the title-track "In The Hour Of The Wolf" testify.

"Hexagon" starts as it means to continue with ominous percussion and swirling guitar echoes creating a compelling tapestry of the darkened world that's perfectly in keeping with today's date - Hallow's Eve - slowly and surely it builds in intensity around grizzly vocals and tour de force riffs to commanding peaks which shiver with mysterious power. That's what you call a statement of intent - I'm off to hide under my bed.
