Travel “Beyond The Door” With This New Khemmis Track



We’ve heard two tracks thus far from the new album by Denver’s Khemmis, and both have slayed our faces off. Now, the band has released another new song, “Beyond The Door”, via No Clean Singing, and guess what, it rules.

“Beyond The Door” is the kind of track that makes me wonder what most doom bands are doing. While prior singles “Candlelight” reminded me of Hooded Menace-esque death metal, and “Three Gates” gave me my chuggy battle metal fix, “Beyond The Door” is a classic stoner doom song. And yet it stands several miles taller than tracks by many of Khemmis’ peers, filled with the kind of Maiden-esque guitar harmonies and accented drums that are found not just in great doom but in great metal in general (makes sense, given the rock and roll base the guys described when I interviewed them). I fucking love these guys.

Listen to “Beyond The Door” below. Khemmis’ new album, Hunted, arrives on October 21st via 20 Buck Spin. Order it here.
