Mizmor, or מזמור, is the absurd brainchild of A.L.N., an obscure darkness-worshipping freak from Portland, Oregon, who also plays (as a live musician only?) in the doom metal misery machine Hell. When you run into such projects, essentially what you are up against is the personality, vision, perversions and sentiments
