Khemmis - "House Of Cadmus" (animated video)

Bloodline fallacies
Wreathe the soul that I call who I am
Lead on while ravens watch
Hungrily eyeing their prey
In a forest drenched in haze
Endlessly barring my way

Threads become stained
Weaving thoughts into blades
That cry for release in the night
A protector’s song
By the bard of barbs
Damning each breath that we take
The curse in my veins

This is the spectre that crawls through my dreams
Blasphemy born in my marrow
A lineage broken and torn at the seams
Now stripped down and chained
I burn the remains

Threads become stained
Weaving thoughts into blades
That cry for release in the night
They’re a jailor’s song
Of abuse in its arms
And fears that I’m bound to this fate
The curse in my veins

I repent

I see the machinations of torment glowing beneath the moon
With mouths of broken glass they rend my flesh and herald my doom

Cleave the body from my former
Render the past incomplete
I would end this to disown it
Leave it bleeding by the sea


Ο δίσκος των Khemmis "Deceiver"
Τον τέταρτο στουντιακό "ολοκληρωμένο" τους δίσκο είναι έτοιμοι να κυκλοφορήσουν οι Khemmis. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Deceiver" κι αναμένεται στα μέσα του τελευταίου φθινοπωρινού μήνα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Restlessly awakening from the depths of a feverish slumber, doomed heavy metal masters Khemmis return to reveal their fourth full length studio album, Deceiver, arriving via Nuclear Blast Records in November 2021.

Six tracks of desolate, soul-awakening heaviness encapsulate a project that has been nearly three years in the making. With a title that reflects the internal struggles that many of us battle in our daily lives, Deceiver is a ferociously honest and appetizingly raw piece of musical artistry.»

Khemmis: «Thematically, all of the songs are about the many ways that we are tricked into believing these stories about ourselves–that we are broken, that we are not good enough, thatour genetics determine our fate.

This title is the label that we put on our minds as a force that tricks us into believing these stories, describes vocalist and guitarist Phil Pendergast. The record’s lyrical trajectory is similar to Dante’s descent into an Inferno of his own making. It is our darkest album to date.»

    1. Ο Έλρικ, ο 428oς αυτοκράτορας του Μελνιμπονέ, ανεβαίνει στον Ρουμπινένιο Θρόνο καθώς αυτή η εποχή φτάνει στο τέλος της. Εκφυλισμένη και αποδυναμωμένη, η φυλή του συνεχίζει να κρατά ανείπωτα μυστικά. Ο ίδιος είναι καθρέφτισμα αυτής της φυλής: αδύναμος, ασπρομάλλης, φιλάσθενος, ζει μονάχα χάρη στα μαγικά του φίλτρα που τον διατηρούν στη ζωή. Άθελά του είναι προορισμένος από την Μοίρα να κρατήσει στα χέρια του το πεπρωμένο ολόκληρου του κόσμου. Φιλόσοφος και ιδεαλιστής, θα αναγκαστεί να γίνει ένας δαιμονισμένος φονιάς, που θα καταλήξει να καταστρέψει όλους όσους αγαπάει κι όλους όσους μισεί....
