Marrying the gentle intimacy of folk, the atmospheric voodoo of death rock, and the bleak, sullen nihilism of black metal, Wolfe's sound effectively cast a genre all her own: a cavernous rumble, marked by stuttering drums, ethereal synths, and a wash of guitar, all very much in the service of one of the most hypnotic, celestial voices in modern music.

8/10 Brian Staff review, 22 August 2014

I've heard this lass before and recall thinking I'd happily ditch my "no dating girls with dodgy names" rule for this one.

I had no idea she was so popular. I've only heard Ms. Wolfe's acoustic demos before so exposure to her fleshed-out earthy, blistering Southern Gothic rock is a beautiful experience. She's easily a match for early PJ Harvey's bruised psychotic blues, the scorched Earth drama of Carla Bozulich or the hand-wringing acoustic chamber intensity of Shannon Wright. Chuck in Nina Nastasia's more sparse, electrifying moments and you've got a singer truly worth waving a flag around for. Ethereal, powerful and genuinely stirring; there's an energy surrounding Chelsea Wolfe that comes around rarely in alternative music. Not every track slays but the ones that do are to die for and while her voice is constantly dramatic, soulful and mesmerising; the music can collapse into scratchy caustic lo-fi one minute and then unfurl into dusty bleak desert rock, shimmering tragic elegies or tender witchy folk at the drop of a hat without compromising the flow.

Quality album. A lot of folk will be happy to see this and 'Apokalypsis' back on the shelves in da wax format.
