Denver metal/doom quartet Khemmis issued the details and lead single for the anxiously-anticipated third album "Desolation." Confirmed for a June 22nd release, "Desolation" will see release in North America once again through 20 Buck Spin, as with the band's prior two LPs, and is the first album from the band to see release for worldwide via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order the album over here.
The cover artwork (shown below) for "Desolation" was created by Sam Turner (Black Breath, 3 Inches Of Blood, In The Company Of Serpents). The album's first single "Isolation" can be heard in the player above via the epic video directed by Italo Ganni.
As 20 Buck Spin's 100th release, "Desolation" will be available as a CD, digital download and LP - with a foil-stamped jacket and 8" inch lyric booklet.
"Desolation" is an album that fans of Paradise Lost, Candlemass, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Spirit Adrift, Pallbearer, Yob, Warning, Atlantean Kodex, High On Fire, Metallica, and Corrosion Of Conformity should not miss.
