Hi Scott, and many thanks for taking the time to do this interview with CVLT Nation. It seems like you have a lot of projects going on this year, so let’s touch on a few of them. How was the latest tour with The Road Home? How did the addition
Hi Dorthia! Firstly, thank you very much for finding the time to do this interview! It is much appreciated! Thanks for wanting to talk with me. Most people recognize your name from Windhand. What has your experience been with the band since you joined? I am a lucky girl and
For fans of heavy music, the name Dorthia Cottrell is definitely familiar. The singer of the uber doom metal act Windhand has offered some of the most transcending vocal deliveries in all the releases from the band, from their self-titled full-length, the insane split with fellow doomsters Cough, to the
So what band put out one of the most original albums of 2014? I’m about to tell you: the DREADLORDS, whose record Death Angel is out now on Not Just Re-Li-Gious Music. This band has put out this off the chain visual for their track “Dreadlords Cometh,” which you can
Driving through the countryside of England was fun, because I would stare out of the widow and see rolling hills that seemed to go on forever.

Are we Chelsea Wolfe fans over here at CVLT Nation? The answer is yes! Check out this really cool performance she gave last year at WXPN Studio’s entitled “Chelsea Wolfe Folkadelphia Session.”
Let’s get this out of the way beforehand: Once I was contacted to review this record, and upon seeing Philadelphia’s Ladder Devils, I noticed at the bottom that they describe their sound as “…the punk urgency of Nirvana with the sonic experimentation of The Pixies,” which is a pretty damn bold statement all around. But the truth is that the Ladder Devils do deserve to compare themselves to those bands, along with a few others, because they absolutely talk the talk and walk the walk with this record.
Nature, Magic, Beauty, Enchantment and Ancient Lands are some of the words that come to my mind as I listen to the the new majestic Anilah & Wardruna song “Warrior (Revisited)” on repeat. This 11-minute composition is a soaring ritualistic anthem that will speak to so many parts of your
