Eternal Return, the fourth full length from Richmond, Virginia's heavy psychedelic quartet WINDHAND represents a new era for the group, a chrysalis moment that takes them to new and unforeseen heights. Across nine songs and 63 minutes, Eternal Return is an infectious display of songcraft cloaked in alluring atmosphere, molten fuzz, eerie psychedelia and ethereal vocals. The album was once again produced by Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden) with vivid artwork by Arik Roper (Sleep, High on Fire). Equally informed by heavy, fuzzed-out psych along with the iconic grunge / alternative groups of the 90s,WINDHAND have crafted a record brilliant in scope, powerful in execution, and perfect for an era of increasingly blurry yet still heavy borders.

I jumped on it with the quickness. You never know how quickly those high-demand black variants will disappear regardless of quantity....

Well, of course you were gobbling that sweet black vinyl. ; )

That was probably politically incorrect if you're sober or not. Wut.

I'll have to give it another listen I guess

Honestly, this album sounds more robust to me than Grief's Infernal Flower ever did. Something was always kind of flat to me about that album. This one is much fuller and definitely is dynamic to my ear. Could just be something in the way you're playing it back. I don't know. It could simply be a dud copy that didn't press out ideally.

Right on. I'll have to listen to it again in a different format (pretty sure it isn't a playback issue since nothing else recently has sounded so flat to me.)

Thanks for properly responding to my question rather than just "assuring me [...] it crushes."
