Hear Doom Metal Crew Windhand’s Trippy New Song ‘Diablerie’

Track will appear on band’s upcoming, Jack Endino–produced album, ‘Eternal Return’

Doom-metal quartet Windhand pair a bass-heavy groove with frontwoman Dorthia Cottrell’s ethereal vocals on their new single, “Diablerie.” Halfway into the song, guitarist Garrett Morris kicks into a psychedelic, wah-wah solo that gives the tune an eerie vibe as Cottrell sings trippy lyrics about black windowpanes. The track, which owes a sonic debt to Black Sabbath, Earth and Sleep, will feature on the band’s upcoming LP, Eternal Return, out October 5th. First single “Grey Garden,” which has a more direct, yet equally heavy and morose sound as “Diablerie,” will also appear on the album.

The group, which hails from Richmond, Virginia, made the album in Seattle with producer Jack Endino who got a similarly gnarly, bassy guitar tone on Nirvana’s Bleach and High on Fire’s Death Is This Communion. Endino also previously worked with the band on their last album, 2015’s Grief’s Infernal Flower, which followed Soma, Rolling Stone’s Third-Best Metal Album of the Year in 2013.

The group will support the album on tour this fall with fellow heavy crew Satan’s Satyrs. (The bands put out a split EP together earlier this year.) The trek kicks off in Atlanta on October 8th and wraps around North America until it ends in Richmond on November 15th.
