Denver-based doom metal bringers, Khemmis, will release their debut LP, Absolution, on July 7th (a vinyl version will be available in August), via 20 Buck Spin, however, you can hear the exclusive premiere of “Antediluvian” over at The Obelisk right now! To get an idea of what you’re in for, in my opinion the first half of the track feels like a doom version of Danzig; it’s heavy, downtrodden, and full of despair. The second half, in a way I’m thinking Type O Negative before the hopeful, occult-like guitar harmonies enter.
Absolution was produced by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cobalt, Nightbringer, Cephalic Carnage), and the cover art was created by Sam Turner (Speedwolf, Black Breath, Trve Brewing). Pre-orders can be made here.
In addition to their hometown record release show on August 1st, Khemmis is days away from unveiling a widespread Western U.S. tour in support of Absolution.
