Vocalist Alan Dubin is known for his role in the drone metal band Khanate. In the early 2000s, Khanate, with Alan's distinctive and tortured vocal approach, pushed the boundaries of doom metal, creating an atmosphere of everlasting torture and despair. His haunting screeches, particularly in tracks like Under Rotting Sky, were spine-chilling and penetrated any semblance of comfort. After Khanate disbanded, Alan continued on with the experimental unit Gnaw. However, the release of Khanate's To Be Cruel in 2023 marked a surprise reunion, showcasing Alan's continued vocal dominance alongside guitarist Stephen O’Malley's insane guitar. Beyond his musical endeavors, Alan is also a professional film/video editor, contributing to various TV commercials, shows, films, and music videos.
