Windhand - Orchard

Today it's time to present category five(Best 10's) from the annual hard rock evening that is always on eve of Twelfth Night. To follow up the theme and the red thread for this years record I decided to choose to turn back to US and pick a tune of the more doom vibe but with a real heavy riffing. The best choice for the Best 10's would be the Richmond, Virginia’s psychedelic doom band, "Windhand" and the tune "Orchard" from their second full-length album Soma.

Soma is an superb record for all fans of guitar driven trancendental, syrupy slow, monolithic and downtuned doom and it's as catchy as it is heavy. Powered by singer Dorthia Cottrell’s beautifully haunting bellow, Windhand’s dual guitar attack sounds like the glorious misfit offspring of early Black Sabbath and Sleep.

This years line up of categories was:

1. Best 70's - Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
2. Best 80's - Candlemass - Solitude
3. Best 90's - Sleep - Dragonaut
4. Best 00's - Grand Magus - Kingslayer
5. Best 10's - Windhand - Orchard
6. Free Card
7. Free Card
8. Free Card

Todays tune "Orchard" is a massive piece. Heavy drowned out, syrupy slow, monolithic with some downtuned fuzzy riffs, a real stoned out doom metal with strong Black Sabbath influences.
