While I applaud Tbug's efforts, I generally think of Karzoug as being a little more...ruthless sounding, if that makes any sense. He should have a voice that is both quiet and threatening, one that demands that you listen closely to hear what he has to say. Matthew King's voice for Illidan in WarCraft III is pretty much what comes to mind for me, although maybe that's just the "ten thousand years" thing reminding me of him.
I'd record my own take on Karzoug, but I doubt that my actual delivery is anywhere near as cool as it sounds in my own head. Ah well.

Only that I have a new microphone. :)
These are over-the-top melodramatic, like the others.
Ah, thank you very much Tbug
Great work as always !
The ending of kzg5 seems a bit sudden, but I really don’t want to complain
Thank you for bringing Karzoug alive for my groups

Wow, what a necro'ed thread. Anyway, I've actually been working on a "Karzoug voice". I imagine his speaking style is a little more staccato than most modern people.
As a trial run, I've recorded his monologue from the end of Fortress of the Stone Giants. If people like it than I'll do more. The link is mediafire at the moment. If people would rather I use a different file-sharing site let me know. So without further ado, here it is:
Mokmurian's Final Gasp
Note: I didn't include the "cruel mocking laugh" since this is a trial run and I didn't want to overdo it right away.
Second, I've actually been working on developing an actual language for Thassilonian. It's not fully-developed, not even close. But I figure Karzoug isn't actually going to address the party in Common so it's only appropriate that there is a Thassilonian version of his monologues. Also, not every adventuring party speaks Thassilonian. So for groups without a translator, here you go:
Let me know what you guys think. I'll take feedback of any kind.

Earlier today I was pondering Valeros sounding like H. Jon Benjamin...
That or Patrick Walburton. Or Bill Paxton...
Or Adam Baldwin. ;)
Surprised no one's mentioned this: I personally think of Tim Curry's villain voice for Karzoug

For me, the voice of Karzoug is Bill Nighy.
The audio adventure from Big Finish is really cool, highly recommended. Karzoug's voice is in the Chapter 6 trailer, about a minute in.
