Bandcamp find: Khemmis



I dunno what they’re putting in the water, beer, and/or weed in Denver, but there’s some serious music coming from that city. While it’s an eclectic mix of genres, one of the most flourishing is Doom (some debate whether to actually call it Doom metal, I think it’s different enough from Metal and Rock to stand on its own), and a rising pillar of that music is Khemmis. This powerhouse quartet delivers some unbelievable power and atmosphere, while still offering some tasty melodies and vocals that embodied pioneers such as Black Sabbath, and also thankfully not fully diving into the murky waters of way-out-there Doom and Stoner Doom bands. Their new album is already finishing up, so there’s gonna be more to check out before too long!
