In 2015, there have been a number of great progressive rock albums. Among these releases, none has been more remarkable than Chelsea Wolfe’s Abyss. Abyss, her fifth studio album, dropped in August on the Sargent House label. Abyss is her strongest body of work to date, blending elements of folk, doom metal and electronic music into divinely ethereal concoctions. In an era where irony and kitsch still reign supreme, Chelsea Wolfe offers material that is refreshingly sincere. The sound composures on Abyss range from being delicate to overwhelming. Chelsea Wolfe displays mastery of her craft as Abyss flows from the devastating and haunting to the lush and awe inspiring. Abyss is remarkable from start to finish.
