Khanate by Khanate, released 29 April 2016 1. Pieces of Quiet 2. Skin Coat 3. Torching Koroviev 4. Under Rotting Sky 5. No Joy 6. No Joy (remix) This is music about power - the exaltation, manifestation, the consolidation, and the earth-shattering use of sound entwined with power as means to the insular mythologies of Khanate. Call it anything you like, as long as the neologism focuses on the gravitational axis of power and sound. Got it. + add. album.
Khanate, based in New York City, NY, United States, formed in the year 2000 with the intention of setting new standards for pain and ugliness in the doom metal genre. Many people call them sludge, drone or simply extreme doom metal.
Khanate's Khanate turns out to be a pretty solid album. I'm a little put off by the guitar/bass tone being reminiscent of Sunn O))), but "No Joy" saves the album from that tone really going to my head. But what makes Khanate really stand out are their vocals. They are high pitched squeals, unrelenting, and incredibly loud, and, of course, incredibly disturbing. Despite this, the lyrics are understandable, and the whole thing comes off like he is a mental patient.
But, Khanate realizes the difference between "good" dismal and "bad" dismal. Their songs are memorable, if unsettling - "Pieces of Quiet" and "Skin Coat" are as close as this kind of discordant, snail-paced music comes to being "catchy" - and they know how to pace their movements well enough to keep their ten-plus minute songs from wearing out their welcome.
Khanate biography KHANATE is an American experimental/ post doom metal act formed in 2000 in New York City, New York.

KHANATEīs second full-length album "Things Viral" followed in 2003 and their third full-length studio album "Clean Hands Go Foul" was released in January 2009
I suppose one complaint that could be level'd at this album (and the band in general) is that if you don't have the patience for the 1 BPM like pace you are going to get bored, but that comes with the territory, this is greatly experimental music that requires your attention, and some time locked in before hand, so come here.
