Denver doom quartet Khemmis have premiered the opening track from their upcoming full-length debut, Absolution, over at Decibel. The thunderous track is titled “Torn Asunder” and it stomps about with sludgy grooves and towering doomed riffs. The band issued the following comments regarding the track:
“We decided to open with ‘Torn Asunder’ because we felt that it offered a bit of everything we do throughout the album in a five-minute-long ripper. There are dueling guitar leads, heavy grooves, and it’s topped off with an ultra-doomy ending. Lyrically, the song explores a scientific backfire at the Large Hadron Collider that wipes out all life in an instant. Those are the most upbeat lyrics on the album. Seriously.”

Absolution will be released on July 7 via 20 Buck Spin.
