New Releases: November 19, 2021 – Khemmis

Khemmis Deceiver


Based on all of the reviews I’ve read on this album, the new Khemmis album Deceiver is receiving the Mastodon treatment from the trve and cvlt metal sites. “Oh they were so good when they started off, this is just kind of ok.”

So simple, and so dumb. “We want all of our bands to stay the same, we’re hurt when they try and evolve”. Right, because we all eat the same food every day, we all dress in the same clothes, and we all work the same job we did when we were in high school.

Deceiver takes the band in different directions. Yes, they started out as purely a doom band, but this album sees them mix in some of the more traditional heavy metal aspects they’ve added to their previous albums. But they’ve taken things further, actually added ingredients of thrash, and death metal to the mix as well.

The band has progressed a ton beyond their self-titled EP. Their Leviathan ala Mastodon if you will. There are some that will enjoy the album because of the chances they take. While those that clamor for them to just be a doom metal band, will complain no matter what.

If you’re into the band’s previous work, stream the album before picking it up. That’s why I include the links below. Give Deceiver by Khemmis a shot and decide for yourself.

Here is Khemmis with "Avernal Gate" off of their latest album Deceiver.
