    Windhand are doom merchants with a female in their ranks. They won't steal your women or your brews, but they will steal your blackened metal heart.

    Dorthia stepped into the ring for a Take Aim and graces us with her awesomeness.

    Twitter-size your bio. 140 words or characters --if you want to get literal-- of everything we need to know about the band! GO!

    Windhand is a rock band from Richmond, Va.

    Pick ONE song on your record and give us an "inside look" -- something that puts us in the moment!

    'Boleskine' was initially an acoustic song and was about 7-minutes long. By the time all was said and done, we were all surprised to realize it had become a 30-minute recording.

    Finish this sentence: Windhand is the band that...

    ...Won't drink all your beer or sleep with your girlfriend.

    Any non-music skills, hobbies or talents?

    Asechiah is an amazing artist and did the album art for our first LP as well as the art on all the merch we sell. Parker is also a talented artist and screenprinter and screens all of our merch.

    Female-fronted metal is always cool by us, especially when it's so sludgetastic. What are the three key elements of a GOOD doom/sludge metal song?

    I think that's totally subjective. Music is a personal thing and what sounds good to me may not sound good to anyone else. But in my opinion, the key elements of any good song are the same across the board: memorable melody, genuine sounding vocals, and whatever it is that makes songs emotionally evocative.

    Will you check out Windhand?
