Solar Halos will fit right in with their quality heavy psych, filled with swirling riffs and captivating swamp grooves.
Richmond, Virginia seems to be the home of some very fertile doom infested soil. It has been kind enough to sprout 2 mammoth doom bands in the past decade. Cough and Windhand are contemporary warriors of darkness. Earlier this year they combined their power to create the monolith split "Reflection of the Negative"
Windhand are back for more with their sophomore full length "Soma". It's doom metal at it's finest. Slow, plodding, eerie and mesmerizing. Clocking in close to 1 hour and 20 minutes, Windhand do take their time... and I'm all the happier for it.
