For a band who traffic in measured, unhurried riffage, Richmond’s WINDHAND have moved awfully quickly over the last few years. Founded in 2009, the VA quintet have been making waves since the release of their 2010 practice space demo, a two-track CD that garnered the band comparisons to artists like Electric Wizard, The Devil’s Blood, and Black Sabbath. That auspicious start was further realized in March 2012 when the band released their self-titled debut, which quickly became an underground hit and sold out of multiple vinyl presses in a matter of months.
Satan’s Satyrs are the brainchild of vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Clayton “Claythanas” Burgess, formed in 2009 in Herndon, Virginia, USA while Clayton was still in high school. Burgess was influenced by both punk rock and doom metal (he has cited Black Flag and Electric Wizard (2) as favorites) as well as drawing inspiration from 1960s & 1970s horror and exploitation movies. Although the band’s first demo featured a friend, known as The Ghoul, on guitar, the first Satan’s Satyr’s LP, “Wild Beyond Belief” was performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Clayton alone. Afterwards, guitarist Jarrett Nettnin and drummer Stephen Fairchild joined the band. In 2013, Satan’s Satyrs were invited to play the Electric Acid Orgy, an event curated by Electric Wizard’s Jus Oborn at the Roadburn festival in Holland. The following year, Clayton was invited to fill the vacant bassist spot in Electric Wizard. That same year, the group’s second LP, “Die Screaming” was released.
