Khanate: Things Viral


Khanate: Things Viral
Released: 2003 (Southern Lord Records)

Although not as epic as their next to last release Capture and Release, Things Viral is one of those doom records I consider essential listening. Featuring Stephen O’Malley from (Sunn o))), Burning Witch), James Plotkin (Khlyst, O.L.D.), and the rest of O.L.D., Khanate’s output is lethally slow and crushing. Things Viral, their second record, features four songs and comes in at a little over 50 minutes. For all those mediocre, hack doom bands out there: check out Khanate and rethink what you’re doing.

Here is a video of Khanate playing Commuted (from Things Viral). The Youtube description says it’s from their DVD (which I’m aware of but haven’t seen before).
