LIVE Review - SKOGSRÖJET FESTIVAL
HAPPY HAPPY HEXED! The majority of the performance consists of the band's latest album Pagans Rising and with a few contributions from the debut Netherworld. For me, who have seen the band a number of times, you eagerly wait to sink your teeth into something new, but for those of you who still haven't discovered Hexed, that's enough. I personally enjoy songs like Resurrection, Repentance and Blasphemy. You have to see this band live, but prepare to be enchanted!
LIVE Review - SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL
We are invited to the fresh track and the upcoming single Resurrection It promises really good, and we are probably many who hope for a new record soon. Despite the short playing time, the hassle, Hexed showed his very best side, and the sound was consistently good throughout the show. I guess it's just to keep my fingers crossed that the band will get back on a bigger stage that they so well deserve.

LIVE Review - SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL
THE MALOIK ROCK BLOG SWEDEN
This band gains a lot from stage presence and talent alone! Melodic metal is a balancing act but Hexed with Tina Gunnarsson on vocals reaches a level that I hope will get more attention. Her tone of voice and powerful voice lift the roof of the tent and there are many who get big eyes when they are on their way past who instead turn around and enter the tent when they hear her. This is really good! If you get the chance to see Hexed this summer, just do it! I promise, it's an experience!
