An ever-changing lineup
The original Windhand line-up of frontwoman Dorthia Corttrell, bassist Nathan Hilbish, guitarists Garrett Morris and Asechiah Bogdan and drummer Jeff Loucks first came together in the Virginia town of Richmond in 2010. After the latter was replaced by ex-The Might Could sticksman Ryan Wolfe, the group released their self-titled debut through Forcefield Records in 2012 before signing with the legendary Relapse Records a year later. With new bassist Parker Chandler in tow, Windhand reached the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and graced Rolling Stone's year-end metal review with 2013 sophomore "Soma" before recording "Reflection of the Negative", a joint effort with neighbouring doom metal outfit Cough. Following a live album recorded at the Netherlands' Roadburn Festival in 2014, the group worked with famous Sub Pop producer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Therapy?) on a third LP, "Grief's Infernal Flower". They then underwent yet another change in personnel when guitarist Bogdan, also a founding member of metal outfit Alabama Thunderpussy, left for good in 2015. After teaming up with Satan's Satyrs for a split EP, the group dropped their fourth album, "Eternal Return", in 2018.

Boneshaking riffs, thunderous basslines, epic beats, enchanting vocals
From Garrett Morris' boneshaking riffs to Parker Chandler's thunderous basslines and Ryan Wolfe's epic beats, Windhand sure know how to create a monstrous wall of sound, whether they're performing at festivals such as Maryland Doom Fest, Belgium's Desertfest or Switzerland's Up in the Smoke or at their own headline shows. But the group's natural sense of menace is balanced by the enchanting and ethereal vocals of Dorthia Cottrell, a hugely gifted singer who's also become an artist in her own right since the release of her eponymous 2015 solo debut. Expect plenty of headbanging, shoegazing and incense burning as the quartet rattle through all the highlights from their acclaimed albums and EPs, including the singles "Red Cloud", "Grey Garden", "Diablerie", "Old Evil", "Forest Clouds" and "Orchard", the latter of which has racked up more than a million plays on Spotify.
