The Levitation Hex was born in March 2010 by Adam Agius (Ex Alchemist Vocals, Guitars, Programming) and Mark Palfreyman (Alarum, Bass Vocals).
In 2011 they started recording and mixing songs for a debut album and were joined by Scott Young (Alarum, Guitar) and Ben Hocking (ex Aeon of Horus, Drums programming). By the start of 2012 the debut was ready to be released and the new band set forth playing shows in Australia and a European tour in October 2012 with a spot at the ongoing Prog Power Europe festival.
After the tour The Levitation Hex signed to Germanys High Roller Records www.hrrecords.de for a worldwide release.
The Levitation Hex is a Metal/Rock band with influences ranging from Space Rock, Psychedelia and 70s progressive music and of course there is an obvious old school Thrash metal and Death Metal influence also. Still Heavy as Hell the band are not interested in following any current or previous trends in music and simply create music that the band members are interested in and that hopefully Metal and Rock fans will love also.
In 2013 the band started working on their second release that will be titled COHESION. The new album is departure from the first with an upbeat attitude and 70s slant on progressive rock. Still heavy as hell the new album features no synthesizers but is sprinkled with cool Mellotron and Organs in parts. The dual vocals of Agius and Palfreyman are more prevalent than the debut and the album is due for release in 2016.
When Cohesion is released The Levitation Hex will tread the boards once again in Australia and Europe and hopefully some other areas of the world.
Until then the Debut is still available on CD and gatefold vinyl from High Roller Records and from www.levitationhex.net on CD and digital download.
