The concept of folk music has since long transcended the stereotypical “lonely people with acoustic guitars”, but few artists has expanded its borders more radically than Chelsea Wolfe (US). Whether she is singing sweetly, growling or whispering her spellbinding voice remains the constant in an ever-changing musical universe. Black metal, goth, doom, drone metal and electronica – everything goes when Wolfe takes on her inner demons.
On Hiss Spun (2017) Wolfe deepens her relationship with heavy music, this time by diving headfirst into sludge metal. But just like always, Chelsea Wolfe’s voice remains in the center of the wailing guitars and the bombastic arrangements. Don’t be surprised if you see indie kids sharing the front row with metalheads
