Colorado doomsters Khemmis have just announced their brand-new, mini album, Doomed Heavy Metal, which is due for release April 17 via Nuclear Blast Records. Khemmis recently dropped their cover of Dio’s “Rainbow In The Dark” featured on the album, and it’s as majestic and heavy as you’re expecting.

The band comments:

As lifelong fans of ZZ Top, Fandango has been a consistent source of inspiration for the four of us. The combination of high-octane live cuts and rare studio recordings make the release stand out in the band’s discography. In that tradition, we are thrilled to announce Doomed Heavy Metal

This mini-album is similarly unique, combining sought-after singles and live cuts together on one record. We’ve topped it all off with a newly recorded version of Dio’s immortal ‘Rainbow in the Dark.’ For those who have clamored for the re-release of the long out of print Empty Throne and Conversation with Death, your calls have been answered. We hope new and old fans alike will pick up the album, pour a tall glass of their favorite beverage, and party with us!
