Classify the lumbering wallop of Virginia's Windhand however you wish: doom metal, sludge metal, stoner metal, heavy psych. (Suggestions courtesy of their own Bandcamp page.) The songs on their new album, Soma — one of which eclipses the half-hour mark and is named after Aleister Crowley's estate in Scotland — have all the requisite storm and squall and keening howl, but also a stubbornly melodic quality and an eerie sense of patience: there's something almost soothing about them, like they're the last lullabies you'll want to hear before being sucked into the chilly vacuum of space. And just imagine how potent that'll be in the womblike confines of the Hemlock.
