Khemmis have signed with Nuclear Blast Entertainment via a licensing deal with 20 Buck Spin.

The Denver, Colorado based multifarious doomed Heavy Metal quartet are currently working on new material which is destined to be their third record and due to be released in 2018 via 20 Buck Spin in North America and via Nuclear Blast Entertainment elsewhere.

Khemmis commented on the signing:

"We are honoured to join the legendary Nuclear Blast roster for the release of our third album. The new songs we've been working on build upon the melodicism of 'Hunted' while also exploring new, heavier and more aggressive sonic terrain.

"We plan to enter the studio in early 2018 with a tentative mid-year release date. Thanks to Monte Conner, everyone at NB, and the listeners and fans who have supported us."

Khemmis, who were formed in 2012, have released two albums to date, 2015s 'Absolution' and 2016s 'Hunted' and both paint a unique portrait encompassing spiralling progressive doom, fuzz-toned stoner riffs, syrupy sludge and churning classic grooves.

They transcend traditional doom forming elegant yet dramatic tracks, conveying their unique sense of melancholy edged with a sense of foreboding.

Debut album, 'Absolution', earned the four piece outright critical praise from the underground while 'Hunted' broke down those final barriers earning Khemmis widespread recognition

Khemmis are:
Phil Pendergast - guitar, vocals
Ben Hutcherson - guitar, vocals
Daniel Beiers - bass
Zach Coleman - drums

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
