Destroying the Devoid – the progressive death metal project led by Craig Peters of Deeds of Flesh – has premiered a new track from its upcoming album, Paramnesia, which is due out on August 19 via Unique Leader Records. Titled “Carnivale Nocturno”, the six-minute tune conjures blisteringly complex death metal that collides with a zany, dark cabaret-style atmosphere. Peters says of the track:
“The song ‘Carnivale Nocturno’ is a very dark song that deals with humanity and how we see ourselves,…Television and magazines project the image of what beauty is and what it is to be successful. This song is about self-empowerment and overcoming our own darkest emotions.”

Denver doomsayers Khemmis
have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Hunted
, at Metal Injection.
The new track is titled “Candlelight” and it features over seven minutes of melodic old school doom stylings, as well as dark and dismal marches. The band says of the track:
“’Candlelight’ embodies our approach to this album — sludgy, melodic, and ultimately triumphant. The lyrics tell of a haunting dream that cannot be contained. Horror emerges, formless, from the void and consumes all hope.”
Check out the track after the break.
Hunted will be released on October 21 via 20 Buck Spin.
