Reviewing albums much of the time there are a couple that fall through the cracks and don’t quite hit you where you think they might at times, Khemmis‘ Desolation was very nearly one of them but not quite.
Returning after the release of their critically acclaimed Hunted, Khemmis have once more thrown down the gauntlet to be one of the best releases of 2018 and at the very least on par with their previous release. Thankfully, Desolation, a 40 odd minute opus into the annals of Doom Metal does exactly what it says on the tin and more!
Combining elements seen in Prog, Heavy Metal, Doom and even Black Metal there are some real surprises in store here for the band and I urge you to give the album a go! Check out my video review of the album below for a bit more of nudge!
