Windhand: Grief's Infernal Flower

Album Review

Virginian doom crew get caught napping

Having crafted one of 2013’s surprise highlights – the colossal Soma, which saw acrid, amp-shanking Wizard-like riffs replacing the drug-abuse paranoia with a breathy melancholy and heavy, Americana-based ennui courtesy of the rich and disarmingly soulful vocal performance of Dorthia Cottrell – you might forgive the Richmond, Virginia-based quintet for not wanting to deviate too far from a winning formula.
