I’m not too involved in the world of stoner doom to call Windhand‘s Soma the stoned out album of the year thus far, but I’d wager to bet that its quality will hit fans of the genre hard, and have enough of a presence to draw in us sober metalheads who still love those slow burning Sabbath riffs. Overall, Windhand are your typical stoner band, but their execution and way of creating hooks puts them up there with Electric Wizard.
Pitchfork has the stream, so if you can put up with their wonky and unintuitive music player enough to listen before its release in about two weeks, you can listen to Soma here.
The album will be out September 17th through Relapse Records. Get in on that pre-order action while you still can!
