Time falls back: Four October recommendations

Posted by longhairedpoet on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 12:01 PM (PST)

Another month has passed us by. The time has just fallen back, meaning shorter and darker days are upon us. The situations we’re in seem to get darker, too, with each passing day. If you’re here reading this then you, like me, probably turn to music to deal with the shit going on in the world. The sun continues to rise and set, and for those of us who see it rise and see it set, we have an obligation, a duty, to do our best to make the world suck a little fucking less each and every day. Hopefully these four albums can be your soundtrack for that.

Check out the four albums I enjoy the most this month here.

Windhand to work with Jack Endino on next record

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 11:52 AM (PST)


Richmond, VA psychedelic satan loving doom troupe WINDHAND have entered the studio with Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, High on Fire). If it is half as good as Soma I’ll buy it! There’s a good likelihood that it might be even better though. Windhand have grown a lot in popularity and have probably been working hard to keep themselves there.

The band is recording their highly anticipated third full-length album at Soundhouse Recording in Seattle, WA. The currently untitled album will see a fall release via Relapse Records.

Windhand tour dates sponsored by…Satan

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 5:30 PM (PST)


Windhand‘s  mighty doom brew will quench (or most likely increase) your thirst for blood. The band have just announced new tour dates surrounding their SXSW appearance as well as some Euro dates. Their album Soma for Relapse is still a turntable favorite and you need to let them rattle your brains live. Fave pick of the dates is their Feb 10th show with the womb warbling chums in Dead Meadow. Fuzz-tastic!

Dates viewable HERE.

Album Review: Windhand – Soma

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 5:56 PM (PST)


Richmond, Virginia’s Windhand present a clear love of plodding doom in the very best sense on Relapse debut Soma, one of the coolest late in 2013 releases in a year that was killer for all things metal. From out the gate with the rolling, oceanic fuzz of “Orchard” the group chart a course for the dim lights on a dying horizon. That is not to imply the tried and true doom the group slings has scant relevance left, but rather that while they aren’t the most pioneering group, Soma shows Windhand know you can still squeeze a very potent blood brew from the metaphorical philosopher’s stone of the doom genre.

What they are doing they do right, with walls of distortion and the nerve melting, echo drenched coo of vocalist Dorthis Cottrell adding a real sense of mystique to killer tracks like the 13+ minute “Cassock” and the commanding album standout “Woodbine”. “Evergreen” breaks up things nicely with acoustic guitars resting like raindrops across billowing clouds and dreamy vocals. ‘s cool. It kind of reminds me of an Appalachian “Silent Night”. It isn’t as breathtaking as, say, the more experimentally minded and overall more affecting Salt Lake City outfit SubRosa’s accapella “House Carpenter” from their 2011 Profound Lore release No Help For The Mighty Ones, but Windhand are pointed in the right direction. I am totaly digging the shit out of this record and the few online critics who say it fell a bit short come off sounding more like they had lofty expectations of “the next” Black Sabbath Vol. 4 or something, rather than the band being at fault. I am listening to this as a thundersnow storm rages outside but this baby named Soma  is keeping me warm through the cold night.
