Relapse Records to release Cough/Windhand split

Official press release: Relapse Records this week unveils a pummeling upcoming split between two prime acts in the contemporary doom/sludge circuit, Cough and Windhand. With both Cough and Windhand hailing from the unrestrained Richmond, Virginia underground, the choice to team the two of them up for the brutal Reflection Of The Negative split album was a simple one, and the results are, as expected, thunderous and immense. Cough leads off, delivering a characteristically electrifying down-tuned epic track, while their brethren in Windhand serve up two brand new epic songs for their half of the dirge. While the track listing bears merely three tracks, this monstrous split bears nearly forty minutes of premier doom at its absolute gloomiest. The album acts as a precursor for both bands' upcoming full-lengths, which are both currently being conceived. Reflection Of The Negative will see official release on April 16th in North America, preceded by international street dates of April 12th (Germany/Benelux) and April 15th (UK/World). Today, Relapse has released a visual trailer for the LP:
