With the impending release of one of the year’s most anxiously-anticipated doom/heavy metal records on the cusp of release, KHEMMIS‘ entire second LP Hunted is now playing exclusively through Noisey, alongside an interview with the band.
Noisey introduces their in-depth coverage of Hunted with praise, including, “Within its five towering tracks resides soaring riffs and polarized vocals executed with pinpoint precision by Phil Pendergast and Ben Hutcherson. The dueling guitarists and vocalists for the band are responsible for some of KHEMMIS‘ most striking characteristics. Phil’s crisp, cleans contend with Ben’s gritty growls as the band rides a slow, loud, and heavy wave of Thin Lizzy-inspired orchestrations that are moving them to the top of Denver’s music scene.”

Using the same team as their lauded 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). Hunted is undoubtedly an album that will solidify KHEMMIS‘ place at the vanguard of doom’s most notable modern manifestations, in large part because they transcend the label itself. They’ve seamlessly blended their influences into an extraordinarily listenable album worthy of countless spins. With such a glut of music released nowadays, Hunted stands apart, rewarding repeat listens with songs seared straight into the heart.
20 Buck Spin will issue Hunted on CD, LP, and digital formats next Friday, October 21st; preorders are available HERE.
