In Dwarven Halls
release: 17 November 2015
label: independent
Khazaddum is "Tolkien death metal" from the state of Wisconsin. This band might remind you of how Nile began as a promising band that transformed into a monster. Given that the source of inspiration is Tolkien it means that this band will never run out of material! This is a good demo-level recording and you can tell that this could be the beginning of something really good. This recording is pretty good, but I sense that there's going to be a whole lot more happening here. It's heavy as death metal can be, with the growled vocals that you expect, but there's also technicality, brutality and melody. You might say that you hear some Nile in here or whatnot. Sure, whatever, you're a nice person and I don't want to argue with you. You don't like to argue and I don't like argue. You know what you can do, though? You can bang your head and we'll call it even. Some years from now these Lombardiland boys might be telling all the skeptics: "How you like me now?!" I await that day! Let's get this show on road! Khazaddum is bad to the bone. Discount double check, big time!
official information:

The In Dwarven Halls EP was recorded at Bell City Sound by Chris Wisco (ex- Jungle Rot) in late 2014.
