Comprised of Garrett Morris (guitar), Parker Chandler (gass) Dorthia Cottrell (vocals), Asechiah Bogdan (guitar), Ryan Wolfe (drums), the Virginia-based quintet WINDHAND have developed a reputation for a forceful, doom metal sound consisting of huge, dirge-like power chords reminiscent of Alice in Chains and Soundgarden and a tight rhythm section over the course of two full-length albums.
The band’s latest album, Grief’s Internal Flower was produced by the legendary Jack Endino best known for his work with Nirvana, Soundgarden and High On Fire, and the album will likely put the band on the national map as it’s arguably one of the harder hitting albums released this year. Now if you’ve been frequenting JOVM for some time, you may be familiar with the band, as I’ve written about the gloom and doom-filled album single “Crypt Key.” The album’s latest single “Two Urns,” continues the album’s heavy, churning, power dirge chords and thundering drumming with Cotrell’s vocals floating above the dark, sludgy and murky mix.
The official video is an appropriately Halloween themed video that features four best friends, out trick-or-treating on their BMX bikes, as four older bullies in a muscle car drive around with sinister intentions. Of course, there are also seances conjuring evil spirits and more — fitting for a song that pulsates with evil.
