Roadburn are very pleased to present an exclusive live track from Richmond VA’s Windhand. Boleskin is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, Live at Roadburn 2014, where Windhand conquered the main stage on Saturday, April 12th.
Live At Roadburn 2014 (mixed by Marcel van de Vondervoort and mastered by James Plotkin) will be a one time only limited vinyl release of 1000 copies through Burning World Records / Roadburn Records.
Set-closer Boleskin will not be featured on the live-album, hence the track premiere which you can stream now over on Roadburn.com.
Sparking your natural highness, Windhand locks into a mesmerizing sprawl of epic, doomic heaviness, a trancelike reverence that inspires lethargic, hypnotic head banging and is embellished with enough hazy psych to be a tripped-out soundtrack for some obscure war on drugs propaganda film.
Meanwhile, vocalist Dorthia Cottrell‘s hellish howl beckons from the distance, swathed in distortion, transcending any earthly ideas of gender, and positioning the band firmly in the discussion with the best of the current crop of female fronted metal outfits.
Windhand’s Live at Roadburn 2014 (in gold, red, puple and black vinyl) will be available for pre-order on Wednesday, August 27th.
