Review: Gay Paris - Ladies And Gentlemen, May We Present To You: The Dark Arts (Beat)

Interview: Ryan Wolfe of Windhand (Beat)

Courtesy Popmatters

Crushing, abrasive and drip-fed wild hooks, press and fans easily dub Windhand a doom band. The term doesn’t sit well with the band, though. Drummer Ryan Wolfe insists the Richmond, Virginia outfit’s rooted in a tradition far more pure: “it’s all just rock n’ roll,” he says. “In my head, when I think about what I’m doing?
