Tales from Bandcamp: Absolution by Khemmis

a1903371115_10Who needs more doom metal in their life?  Everybody!  That’s who!  Doom is awesome.  Especially when there are so many bands doing cool and interesting spins on the genre.  My latest peruse of Bandcamp has let me to check out Khemmis (clicked on it mainly because that cover art is freaking awesome.  Do you hear that bands?  Even in the digital age, kick ass cover art still sells.)  A crusty layer of fuzzy stoner doom touched with spatterings of old-school hard-core, NWOBHM, and death metal will hammer your eardrums with some wonderfully chunky grooves.  At times you get a tune that is like Pallbearer’s tone crossed with Iron Maiden’s bombastic leads and solos other are a Candlemass’ stomping grooves meets Madball’s beatdown vocals affair.  As crazy as those cocktails sound Khemmis pull them off with ease, gusto, and panache.  Regardless of the stylistic mix they are jamming with Absolution simply rocks hard front to back and is a must listen for any discerning doom fan.  Listen, buy, support, share, doomstomp!!!!!  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!
