Unclassics 100: Khanate - Things Viral (Southern Lord, 2003)

genre: ultradoom metal, noise

There is only one album from 00s which deserves to get the number 100 - it is Khanate's second recording. Well, it would rather deserve the number 666, but there is no way I will keep this project until 2012. Words fail when you want to describe this dense, claustrofobic and ultraslow album. Four songs all filled with Dubin's gravely screams and O'Malley's slow riffs, however the king of this recording is Plotkin, who creates the subsonic soundscape around the catathonic metal. Khanate are the best nightmare of your life, the soundtrack to your last moments alive. And also one of the very best extreme music albums ever made on this planet. (Both lo-fi & raw debut and their last studio album Capture & Release is also very good, but maybe too sofisticated for its own sake, the same said about this year's post-mortem album Clean Hands Go Foul.)
