“Levitation Sessions” debuts this Saturday, November 14 at 7 p.m. CT featuring Richmond, VA-based Windhand. The doom quartet have quickly risen to the top of the scene with their genre-defying take on gloomy psychedelia. Perhaps the perfect soundtrack to these dystopian times.

Windhand are one of the key artists in the resurgence of heavy music—standing apart in a scene teeming with great bands inspired by artists like Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Sleep, and Electric Wizard, due their mastery of the craft and the stunning vocals of singer Dorthia Cottrell.

It was great to get together with the band after so many months apart, to plug in all the gear and let the demons loose once again. For a moment there, it almost felt like being back on the road. We got to work with our old friends like Jonathan Kassalow (lighting and organ) and frequent music video collaborator Jordan Vance.

They pulled it all together and made the show a heavy, visual experience to pair with the audio which was recorded and mixed by our live sound engineer, Chris Moore. We look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon at a real show, but this is as close as we’ll get for now. Hope y’all enjoy.” -Dorthia, Garrett, Parker and Ryan
