KHEMMIS will also perform at Decibel Magazine’s Beer & Metal Fest in Philadelphia on April 22nd and 23rd with Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Sleep, Pig Destroyer, Municipal Waste, Immolation, Krieg, and others. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

KHEMMIS’ second LP, Hunted was released through 20 Buck Spin in October. Using the same team as their lauded Absolution debut, Hunted was recorded at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero (Cobalt, Nightbringer, Cephalic Carnage) and features artwork by Sam Turner (3 Inches Of Blood, Black Breath, TRVE Brewing). Undoubtedly an album that will solidify KHEMMIS’ place at the vanguard of doom’s most notable modern manifestations, its epic presence has resulted in a widespread infection within fans and media critics around the globe. The album has continued to captivate the masses since its official release, and is currently dominating year-end/best-of lists everywhere, the album even taking the prestigious slot as Decibel Magazine’s #1 Album Of 2016.
Hunted is available worldwide on CD, LP, and digital formats through 20 Buck Spin right HERE.
