Khanate (pronounced “khan-eight”) shaped in the entire year 2000 using the intention of environment fresh standards for discomfort and ugliness within the doom metallic genre. Their tunes are designated by dissonant, greatly down-tuned acoustic guitar/bass figures, incredibly sluggish tempos, swarms of high-pitched opinions, and painfully shrieked vocals, producing for a really anguished and demanding listening encounter — put yet another way, their music isn’t for everyone. The quartet is definitely going up by guitarist Stephen O’Malley (Burning up Witch, Thorr’s Hammer, Sunn O)))) and bassist Wayne Plotkin (Aged, Atomsmasher, etc.), two music artists whose reputations within the underground metallic/experimental arenas precede them and may give listeners a concept of what things to expect from your music group. Rounding out the lineup are vocalist Alan Dubin (also previously of Aged) and drummer Tim Wyskida. Khanate released their self-titled debut in nov 2001 on Southern Lord Information.
