Clean Hands Go Foul
Released: May 2009
Label: Hydra Head Records
After a three-year hiatus, Khanate reunited for this final record, a return to the minimalist doom metal extremism for which they were acclaimed when they abruptly split up in 2006. The viciousness in Khanate's music is more implied than stated. The "silent" spaces between the microphone-frying drum-guitar crashes communicate as much to the listener as the so-called "action," and a sort of painful mind-journey to wherever Khanate decides to drag you emerges. Meanwhile Alan Dubin's endlessly tortured screeching assures you that everything is not going to be all right.
