Khemmis shares a new animated video for

After the release of their latest track “Sigil”, Khemmis is back with another single “House of Cadmus, which will be featured on their next album. Misleading, released on November 19. The new single is accompanied by an animated clip directed by Romanian visual artist Costin Chioreanu.

“House of Cadmus” features a graphic novel-like animation style populated with dark tones as images of skulls, crows, and graveyard appear. The song features a smooth heavy metal output, as its energetic drums sound right alongside melodic guitar chords and an anthemic chorus.

“In [‘House of Cadmus’], we explore the seat of our deepest fears, the anchors that we drag behind us all our lives. It is also perhaps the most important song for me, personally, in our entire catalog. With him, I cut the chains that have long held me captive and I invite all who hear him to do the same, ”said singer Phil Pendergast in a press release. “We are all overwhelmed by some aspect of our lives: addiction, abuse, mental illness, fear, regret and shame, to name a few. These traumas distort our view of ourselves, each other, and the world around us. But these are just stories we tell ourselves, and no matter how global they may be, those stories cannot define us. “

Misleading is on the cusp of addressing mental health issues and follows the group’s split with former founding member Dan Beiers following a series of conversations within the group. According to the members of Khemmis, the record should also welcome a more psychedelic sound, while his previous single “Living Pyre” hosts an alternative rock theme.
