Though undeniably influenced by doom and classic metal, to tag the quartet with those labels doesn’t do justice to what they’ve accomplished; a perfect representation of modern heavy metal that integrates the past in a way only possible with the faculty of hindsight.
It’s impossible to ignore the lengths that the four-piece go to, to master their craft and produce a highly unique form of heavy sound.
Their magnificently uplifting, yet sorrowful groovy riffs weave the listener along on an unparalleled journey. Desolation is not just the best Khemmis record to date but a testament to the quality and evolution that heavy metal is still capable of. Having worked for the third time with Dave Otero of Flatline Audio in Denver, the band and producer achieved a deep mutual understanding, able to arrive at the perfect symbiosis of songwriting, arrangement, and production value.
The band comments, “We had such an amazing time in Europe last year, and we are thrilled to be back this spring for another round. What better way to cap it off than at the Underworld as part of Desertfest London? See you soon, European hellraisers!”
