Our Story

The dark musical concoctions that Alhazred brews in its underground lair embrace elements of heavy metal, progressive rock and steampunk aesthetics. Atmosphere, melody and the mighty riff reign supreme while lyrical inspiration comes from the work of the greatest dark fantasists of the last two centuries.
