"Deceiver" is the fourth full-length from the Denver doomsters KHEMMIS. A band that I have been following since their debut in 2015. The melodic and gloomy depths of doom in the new wave format that they have mastered so well since the band’s debut.
The band is now a three-piece after the departure of bassist Dan Beiers. The band has been a bit withdrawn the last few years with some exceptions of a few covers, like "Rainbow In The Dark" (DIO), "Down In A Hole," (ALICE IN CHAINS), etc.
KHEMMIS’s "Deceiver" is a beautiful, musically ambitious journey from beginning to end drenched in impassioned melody and complex, unrestrained variations of sonic savagery adorned with chilling, intensely tragic cover art by frequent collaborator Sam Turner.
While the lyrical themes of "Deceiver", sorrow, pain, longing for hope, will no doubt be familiar to longtime fans, these six songs display a broader collection of musical influences than on any other KHEMMIS record to date.
"Deceiver" is a well-created album, it needs a few spins before it starts to sink into your soul but when it does it will stay. "Deceiver" was released on November 19th via Nuclear Blast Records. Get it.
Today's tune "House Of Cadmus", taken from "Deceiver", enjoy!
