John Haughm (born September 14, 1975) is a heavy metal musician and artist from the United States who currently plays for Pillorian. He is most known for being the vocalist, guitarist and founder of the band Agalloch. He also designed the layout for the album Embodiment: Collapsing Under the Weight of God by death metal band Sculptured, as well as for all of the releases, shirts, and promotional material for Agalloch.
John Haughm was born in Ellensburg, Washington, but grew up in Montana. He played in several metal bands as a teenager, some of which were with future Agalloch bassist Jason Walton. Eventually, Haughm and Walton moved to Portland where they met Don Anderson, guitarist of Sculptured, and found that they had "tremendously similar taste in music and cinema". Haughm formed Agalloch in January 1996, and had a brief stint in Sculptured, performing as the drummer on Apollo Ends.
