I am very excited to be reviewing this beast, I have a long history with both of these bands, and I think one of the best releases of 2018 so far…so let’s jump right in. So to first point out this is the legendary doom outfit “Windhand” teaming up with the biker rock trio “Satan’s Satyrs” and they’re releasing this via Relapse Records. So the first half is Windhand throwing down some heavy tracks with “Old Evil” and “Three Sisters” and to me Old Evil didn’t really do anything for me but Three Sisters is definitely one of Windhands most evil and doom filled songs, it even features a organ! How much more evil can you get. Especially with the fuzz filled and monstrous drums on this track.
Then on the other half it’s Satan’s Satyrs taking a swing at the Split. They first throw “Alucard Ad 2018” at you which is a groovy/70s vibe song, then they continue on the streak of blood pumping tunes with the track “Succubus”, which to me isn’t anything special but hey I think both of these bands did a killer job making a solid Split together. I think personally the winner on this album is Windhand, the singer brings such a atmospheric and creepy voice it gives me goosebumps. Now don’t get me wrong I love Satan’s Satyrs just as much but I’m gonna have to give it to Windhand on this one.
You can go buy this album down below and support both of these great bands!
I’m giving this Split a 8/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.
