From Nuclear Blast Records:

Coloradan doomed heavy metal outfit Khemmis has released their long awaited new full-length, »Deceiver«, November 19 with Nuclear Blast! What will likely be considered one of 2021’s best metal records by critics, »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. The album digs deep into listener’s psyche as it delves into complex themes of mental health and the inner battles of emotional struggles and instability as riffs rain down in a torrential outpouring of cathartic healing.

Commenting on the record release the trio states:

“I am filled with gratitude to see »Deceiver« released worldwide via the mighty Nuclear Blast. This record is the culmination of the darkest days in our lives, both individually and collectively, yet it is also a testament to the power of love and compassion. I am proud to have crafted these songs with my brothers, to share them with all of you, and to hold this record in my hands and feel immense joy from the music contained therein.” – Ben Hutcherson (guitar/vocals)

“I couldn’t be more proud to finally share this record with the world today. It was a powerful experience writing and recording »Deceiver«, one that pushed us individually and collectively to contend with our deepest fears and ultimately choose each other, our lives, and our art over pain and disillusionment. I sincerely hope that these songs and the messages they contain can bring a little light to the darkness we all face, and that they might inspire each of us to be a little more vulnerable in our lives, a little more open to recognizing our shared struggles and humanity, despite our differences.” – Phil Pendergast (vocals/guitar)

“I’m very excited to unleash the most fully realized record from Khemmis to date. While it was a tough one to conjure, I’m proud of how we were able to fight through a very tough time, come together, and ultimately create something that represents us at this moment. Thank you to everyone who listens and spreads the word.” – Zach Coleman (drums)
