Hex Of The Day – Nordein

I've been dwelling on the sad reality of the UK no longer being in the EU. I believe I've mentioned this before. Sorry if I have. I'm still sore and bitter about it. I've been feeling depressed about how it's going to impact my move to Norway, the lives of other Brits with dreams of… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Nordein

Hex of the Day – The Bridge City Sinners : Song of the Siren

It's been a minute since I've posted on here. I've been on a short break from socials etc. but mostly because I needed to focus intently on other matters at hand which are stressful. However, I've realized this outlet and other creative things is the only way to drag the weight off my shoulders and… Continue reading Hex of the Day – The Bridge City Sinners : Song of the Siren

Witches & Witchcraft Hexlist

I don’t have a Hex of the Day for you this Friday…I have something better…a new Hexlist! I read Witches Sluts Feminists by Kristen J Sollee earlier on*, and there was a chapter looking briefly at the witch and her position within the music realm. This got me thinking about the excellent song Voodoo Pussy by Azizza,… Continue reading Witches & Witchcraft Hexlist

Hex Of The Day – Oh Boy Les Mecs

I'm sorry it's been a while since you've heard from me, folks. It's been a peculiar six days. A project I was working on came to an abrupt halt, leaving me feeling disoriented and sad. My dad almost choked to death. I've spent hours trying to craft bones into a crown for a photoshoot, and… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Oh Boy Les Mecs

Hex Of The Day – Mirusbella Covering Transilvanian Hunger

Today has been something of a downer, though it was cheered up somewhat when I landed upon a perfect acoustic cover of Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger. The chirruping birds in the background give it that extra something. Mirusbella, an artist from Germany, performs it. I know zilch about her but have just started following her Instagram page so… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Mirusbella Covering Transilvanian Hunger

Hex Of The Day – Kampfar

Gratulerer med dagen, Norge! Du er for alltid i mitt hjerte. It’s been one of those days where I’ve hardly had time to take a breath, but I knew that, before Syttende Mai (Norway’s National Day) came to a close, I needed to share a song which, for me, roars for the glory of Norway.… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Kampfar

Hex Of The Day – Windir Covers

Yesterday, I was lurking around on the Sognemetal Facebook group and someone posted a YouTube video of a fucking exquisite piano cover of Windir's Svartesmeden Og Lundamyrstrollet. Naturally, following this, I fell down a Windir shaped hole and uncovered more covers that deserve your rapt attention. I suggest you make them your soundtrack this Friday… Continue reading Hex Of The Day – Windir Covers

Mental Health Awareness Week Hexlist

As you'll know, if you've read the About Us page, this blog is hosted by me, Katie and Meghan, and we make up the band Cave Mouth. The lyrics on several of the songs that feature on our albums Hex and The Dark Has Teeth are attempts to distil my experience with depression. As it's Mental… Continue reading Mental Health Awareness Week Hexlist

Hex of the Day-Ehlder -Hedningadrapa

The last couple days I've been out picking up firewood, bones, plants and getting bit by ticks (twice in fact) and witnessing some truly astonishing sunlit forests among backroads. The forest trillium are blooming as are the wild violets making gentle purple waves among the deep floors of these swampy lowlands that I inhabit. Spring… Continue reading Hex of the Day-Ehlder -Hedningadrapa

Hex Of The Day

I'm sorry I didn't post a Hex of the Day yesterday. I let you down. I let myself down. The thing is, it was a dreadful day for music. For everything I put on (several different releases), I was like, 'Nope, not feeling it. Nope, not feeling it. Nope, not feeling it.' It was particularly… Continue reading Hex Of The Day
