Denver metal/doom quartet Khemmis released a visualizer video for the new single "Bloodletting." The song is the opening track from the anxiously-anticipated third album "Desolation," which drops on June 22nd in North America via 20 Buck Spin and the rest of the world via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order the album over here.
The band commented on the track: "'Bloodletting' displays a number of new directions we take throughout this album. A big, harmonized overture gives way to soaring vocals and classic metal grooves before dragging you into uncharted, crushing darkness."
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.
