Khemmis stream their new single »Sigil« as part Decibel Magazine’s Flexi Series
Doomed heavy metal outfit Khemmis has partnered with Decibel Magazine to reveal a stream of their new single entitled »Sigil«. The crushing b-side was previously only available as part of Decibel’s Flexi Series that accompanies the magazine’s current November issue #205.
Commenting on the track guitarist/vocalist Ben Hutcherson states: “»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 will make their long-awaited return this fall with the release of their fourth full-length album, »Deceiver«. Set to be released on November 19th, 2021 via Nuclear Blast Records, their first record in over three years is their darkest release to date.
