Khanate

Now-defunct Khanate was a supergroup of sorts that brought together members of Old Lady Drivers, Manbyrd and Sunn O))). While their run was short, the band managed to record a whole number of albums, EPs and compilation tracks.

r-507139-1168299383Most of their tracks were 10-minute+, painfully slow dirges, punctured by shrieks coming from former OLD / Old Lady Drivers vocalist Alan Dubin (Khanate also featured another former Old Lady Driver – guitarist James Plotkin). Much of their material was released by Southern Lord label, as well as Hydra Head Records.

On September 24, 2006, the band split, with James Plotkin subsequently forming Khlyst, along with another ex-Khanate member Tim Wyskida and female vocalist Runhild Gammelsæter (Thorr’s Hammer).

The bands 4th album “Clean Hands Go Foul” is scheduled for release in late 2008/early 2009. The album was recorded in 2005 in Brooklyn, NY, some time after the band recorded material for “Capture & Release” album.
