KHEMMIS Issues Details On Second Album

KHEMMIS Issues Details On Second Album

Denver, Colorado-based powerful doom metal quartet KHEMMIS has completed their second full-length album, and is preparing the mighty Hunted for Autumn release through 20 Buck Spin, this week unveiling the cover art, track listing, and other details. The news comes as the band prepares to tour the Western half of the country in transit to their performance at the first annual Migration Festival the second weekend of August.

Using the same team as their lauded debut, Hunted was recorded at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero (Cobalt, Nightbringer, Cephalic Carnage) and features artwork by Sam Turner (3 Inches Of Blood, Black Breath, TRVE Brewing). Hunted is undoubtedly an album that will solidify KHEMMIS‘ place at the vanguard of doom’s most notable modern manifestations, in large part because they transcend the label itself. They’ve seamlessly blended their influences into an extraordinarily listenable album worthy of countless spins. With such a glut of music released nowadays, Hunted stands apart, rewarding repeat listens with songs seared straight into the heart. Continue reading

Vukari – Divination Pre-orders are Live!

Vukari - Divination Pre-orders are Live!

With such an impressive and emotive body of work behind them in the form of the debut full-length, “Matriarch,” and an MLP, “En to Pan,” Chicago’s Vukari have tapped into a very prolific strand of creativity since their 2013 inception. Dense atmosphere meets an airy and often-frantic form of black dominant metal, with post and mystical elements that also arise from the band’s focused and adventurous core. Vukari’s debut for Bindrune Recordings is “Divination,” a twisting monolith of dense sound eager to be witnessed as the band burrows deep within the core of human experience.

With a new lead guitarist (Rich Stancato of Valley Of Hinnom) adding a fresh layer of creativity, the album cultivates an ever-changing, yet always profound series of emotions to arrive at what could be considered an enlightened form of black metal ascension. Rhythm guitarist and vocalist Marek Cimochowicz describes “Divination” as a historical fiction concept record following a lowly patrician during ancient Roman times, and his thirst for power. Through a series of dreams he encounters a symbol that guides him. By using this symbol at the forefront of his campaign, he gains a substantial amount of political and military support. Soon following, his immense power distorts his reality and all his supporters will suffer the consequences of putting their trust into one man.  Continue reading

LACUNA COIL RELEASE VIDEO FOR 'DELIRIUM'

Fresh, dark and extremely powerful are only a few of the best ways to accurately describe LACUNA COIL’s latest opus ‘Delirium‘, which encompasses the strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the 90’s twisted with goth elements into a modern style. Now, the group proudly presents the album’s first official music video for its gripping title track ‘Delirium’ which was directed by Michael Winkler (iconographic).

Lacuna Coil – Delirium

Cristina Scabbia states: “We filmed our parts for this video in one evening while we were on the US tour this past May. We used a Go-Pro against a black backdrop and we wanted something that would be purposely rough, something that could remind some weird lost videos found after years and years.  Continue reading
