Windhand - “Orchard”
Richmond’s stoniest doom band Windhand has released a brand new video for “Orchard” from the latest album Soma via Revolver. I don’t think I ever noticed a “Stairway to Heaven” quote in there before, and maybe it was unintentional. These dark and heady visuals will help you get in the evil frame of mind which is the optimal mind frame to be in while listening to Windhand in general. Desolate, nightmarish imagery was compiled by Jordan (www.admit2nothing.tumblr.com) and edited by John Quiles. Get lost in bleak fear while vocalist Dorthia Cottrell moans with the powers of the undead. The heaviest guitars you’ve ever heard create the sludginess of the devil’s brew.
Catch Windhand on 8/24 @ Strange Matter with All Them Witches and King Buffalo. $8 adv/$10 door.
The band will open for Sleep in Philly on 8/26 but you can’t go (well, unless you got one of those quickly depleted tix) September sees Windhand on tour with All Them Witches, playing occasionally with Jex Thoth and Ilsa. Austin will host Windhand with Harsh Toke (seriously killer) and Dead Meadow on 9/26……. then in October the band will be welcomed down under with Beastwars. phew.
