Khemmis Streaming New Track “Sigil”


Khemmis served up a b-side track by the name of “Sigil” for inclusion in Decibel magazine’s long-running flexi disc series. This track accompanies the current November issue (#205) of that publication and is available to stream below. You can get the magazine and flexi disc here.

The band’s guitarist/vocalist Ben Hutcherson commented:

“‘Sigil‘ is a d-beat-driven rager that we wrote and recorded during the ‘Deceiver‘ sessions with Dave Otero. It combines hallmarks of the ‘Khemmis sound’ – harmonized riffs, pounding drums, and soaring vocal melodies punctuated with vicious screams – with a decidedly bleaker, more aggressive approach to our signature style of doomed heavy metal. When Decibel approached us about contributing a new song to their Flexi series, we knew that ‘Sigil‘ was the perfect candidate and that it required a powerful visual companion piece. Enter our friend Daniel Warren Johnson (Murder Falcon, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth) whose monochromatic illustration of otherworldly horror perfectly captured the apocalyptic heart of the song.”

Khemmis‘ new album “Deceiver” is presently headed for a November 19th release on Nuclear Blast.
