η υπερεκτιμημένη μπάντα του heavy/doom επέστρεψε.
The band comments:Since joining with 20 Buck Spin in 2015 for the release of their debut album ‘Absolution’, Khemmis have been prolifically busy. Three full length albums, ‘Absolution’, ‘Hunted’ and ‘Desolation’, a split EP with Spirit Adrift, a Decibel Magazine flexi and multiple tours and festival appearances throughout North America and Europe. As Khemmis continues work on their fourth album and first for Nuclear Blast Records, the band offers up “Doomed Heavy Metal” to close out the first chapter in their ascendent march to the top.
For Khemmis’s ever expanding fanbase “Doomed Heavy Metal” offers a treasure trove of rare material to temporarily sate the hunger for that highly anticipated new album. Never a band to shy away from a challenge, their cover of the legendary “Rainbow In The Dark” by Ronnie James Dio is a triumphant and energized tribute to the ultimate God of Heavy Metal that in the hands of a lesser band might be anything but. Recorded exclusively for this release the song takes on new life in the signature Khemmis style, making it their own without betraying the ideal of the original.
Additionally “Doomed Heavy Metal” contains the band’s rare and storied interpretation of “A Conversation With Death” and the much requested Decibel flexi track “Empty Throne”. The B-side offers three huge live tracks, one from each of the three 20 Buck Spin released full length albums. Recorded at a headlining show in their native city of Denver by their longtime producer Dave Otero, these fan favorites show Khemmis meet and exceed all expectations at every show they play.
Below is the “Doomed Heavy Metal” track list:“We are thrilled to finally unleash “Doomed Heavy Metal”! As the world continues to navigate these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to embrace parts of our lives that give strength and connect us to others. Heavy metal has done that for the four of us as it has for many of you. This mini-album is dedicated to all of our fans, to Dave at 20 Buck Spin, to Monte and all of our family at Nuclear Blast and to heavy metal as both an art form and a way of life. Put on this record raise a beverage up high and let these songs bring some light into a dark world.”

Ωραίο, αλλά είδα πως τους τσίμπησε η NB. Ας ελπίζουμε να μην πέσει άρμεγμα.
