Doom metal outfit Khemmis have partnered with Decibel Magazine to reveal a stream of a new single titled "Sigil." The b-side was previously only available as part of Decibel's Flexi Series that accompanies the magazine's current November issue #205. You can listen below.
Guitarist/vocalist Ben Hutcherson comments: "'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."
