Introduce Yourselves: Zahhāk

What is the name of your band?


What is the genre of music that you play?


Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today?

Zahhāk is a Noise-Sludge trio from Aachen, Germany, founded in late 2021, when members of previous projects decided to start a new band, focused on really heavy sludge, noise and drone.

Since then we had quite some gigs, opened for Crowbar in our hometown and released an EP (“Zahhāk s/t”, 2022) a full length album (“Yakh”, 2023), and now we added our second one 'Ostokhān' to our discography. We recorded and produced all these releases ourselves.

What can people expect from your music?

Noise and slooow Doom but we also like to surprise with oriental rhythms and melodies. Emotionally it revolves around sadness and desperation and anger.

What is the best release that folks should check out from your band?

The newest one 'Ostokhān' has the most fleshed out sound. But people also seem to like our harsh and rough sounding self titled EP.
