Doom rock stalwarts Windhand have unleashed their new video for Crypt Key - embodying the haunting and massive essence of their upcoming album, Grief's Infernal Flower. Rolling Stone recently featured the band in their recent '10 Bands You Need To Know' piece.
"Windhand does a thing and does it well: gargantuan doom-metal smoked in moody grunge. From album to album, the Richmond band recognizes its strengths and pushes them forward." - Lars Gotrich for NPR
Windhand convey an irrepressible sense of motion even within the slowest of songs. Their sound is palpable, heavy, personal and a modern testament to the power of doom and stoner metal's legacies. For their third full-length, Richmond doomers teamed up with Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, Soundgarden) resulting in a work that sees Windhand cementing themselves as one of the premier metal bands of our time.
Says Phil Weller in his review of their latest album, Soma, for The Sludgelord:
"Music is a form of escapism. It offers you something to become immersed in to help forget about the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Every so often, a record comes along that is just perfect for this; Windhand’s Soma is most definitely one of those. Slow, brooding and fuzzy-as-chewbacca riffs create monolithic sonic landscapes, inviting you into a contemplative mind set. Although the record consists of a mere 5 tracks, it is an impressive 75 minutes long. Each track is a marathon within itself, repetitive, seemingly endless grooves envelope you fantastically."
