Richmond, VA may be known primarily for its wicked thrash and crust punk scenes, but there’s something evil lurking within that doomed old capital. Psyched-out ultra-Sabbathian and Electric Wizard-loving amplifier worshippers WINDHAND, who boast ex-members of heavy riffters Facedowninshit and Alabama Thunderpussy within their ranks, have risen.
On the heels of a recent Northeast US tour and numerous triumphant local appearances, WINDHAND will be releasing their self-titled debut LP via Richmond’s own Forcefield Records (who will be splitting the CD release with UK cult label Mordgrimm). Slated for an October 25th release, the record will be available in a limited gatefold pressing of violet wax, and was recorded/mixed by Garrett Morris (PARASYTIC, BASTARD SAPLING) at the Dark Room with Slipped Disc Audio’s Bill McElroy (PENTAGRAM, AVAIL, ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY) handling mastering duties.
