Denver doomsayers Khemmis have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Hunted, over at Decibel. The new track is titled “Three Gates” and it churns out over six minutes of galloping sludge and melodic and monolithic doom marches. Guitarist Ben Hutcherson said of the track:
“‘Three Gates’ is the fastest song on the new album. It allowed us to channel our love of Motörhead and High on Fire. [Guitarist/vocalist] Phil [Pendergast] and I knew we wanted heavy vocals for the verses and that death growls wouldn’t work. Enter Grant Netzorg, our friend from [Denver band] In the Company of Serpents, whose vocals were perfect for the song. The lyrics detail the terror of being trapped in another person’s idyllic life, a perfect hell.”

Hunted will be released on October 21 via 20 Buck Spin.
