So the dutch black metal/hardcore band Hexis will be embarking on a tour of just over 3 months, playing 111 shows in 109 days. Here's the Facebook post - https://www.facebook.com/Hexisband/posts/2464824236873763

They're a sick band, and this is a MASSIVE undertaking for a band of their size all at once. As much as I give major props to them for rising up for the challenge, I also wonder if this is even a smart decision for them for the size they are - especially since it's only in 1 continent. I have my doubts as to whether or not the turnout will be worth taking on a tour of this size; unless they continuously pair up with bands much larger than them to take the pressure off.

What do you guys think?

That's quite an economical undertaking, not to mention physical. I don't think money is a factor for them, but with virtually no time to recover, the tour will be a daunting task especially for the vocalist.

Denmark is just a slightly bumpier Netherlands so I can understand the mix-up.

Black metal meets hardcore punk and black metal meets punk are two of the biggest fads in BM right now.

I'm not overly familiar with both trends but I'd remommend:

Bosse-de-Nage
Owls Woods Graves
Devil Master
Young and in the Way and and Funeral Chic (awful names, good music)
Bone Awl

Just getting enough venues to cooperate to book 111 straight shows is a feat in and of itself. That sounds absolutely exhausting and they're insane for doing this, but mad props.

If I was in the band, I'd fire whoever's booking the gigs.

That's so unhealthy it's not even funny... Hardcore Indeed. Kudos to them, I guess...

I've seen Hexis a whole lot of times opening for a variety of bands and they were not bad, but the sheer volume they always like to play at was annoying as hell, just an undistinguishable mess of sound. I have a hard time imagining how they manage to pull off these kinds of tours several times per year and have the audiences to cover for them.

It seems like that Kvelertak album from some years back really did make a splash then.

To be completely honest, I've seen them live and they weren't any good. They just sound like Celeste but they aren't as good.

He's going to ruin his vocal chords, I can pretty much guarantee it.

Hexis is quite a special band, they even once performed in a train https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UExO3WClTXg
