Dive into the bottomless darkness of your soul with Chelsea Wolfe‘s new album trailer for Abyss. The album drops on August 7th, 2015 via Sargent House and features collaborators Mike Sullivan of Russian Circles, D.H. Phillips of True Widow, Ben Chisholm, Dylan Fujioka, and Ezra Buchla.
While the trailer doesn’t contain any full songs*, the melodies in this clip of Iron Moon are achingly beautiful and expressive. There is delicate poignancy mixed with a deep, interstellar heaviness. It is reminiscent of Mark Lanegan’s Leviathan.
Her two previous albums are great work. Pain Is Beauty was one of the AQ staff’s collective favorites in 2013. Pairing that creativity with the arthouse horror-psych nightmare film Lone she made in her down time, none of us can wait to see what she will share with us next.
