• khemmis Absolution (digipak CD, £10.50)

    label: 20 Buck Spin

    This is one polished humdinger of a debut by KHEMMIS.  Often within the scope of a single song Khemmis veers effortlessly between the crushing heaviness of Southern Sludge and the sombre melodicism of Traditional Doom, cohesively weaving the disparate styles into their own immediately recognisable form.  Vocally Khemmis utilise a dual approach, sometimes harsh, but mostly via stunningly smooth classic Doom/Heavy Rock vocals that even adamant fans of Pete Stahl and Wino will applaud.  The powerfully adept rhythm section perfectly anchor the towering riff mastery and colourful dual guitar harmonies.  All brought together by Dave Otero’s (Cobalt, Nightbringer) pitch perfect production work.  FFO: Goatsnake, Pallbearer, Samothrace, Graves At Sea, Red Fang, Yob.  Fantastic Frazetta inspired cover art by Sam Turner (Speedwolf, Black Breath, Trve Brewing).
