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.

Road Home show flyter

Recently, Scott Kelly fans have been abuzz with the announcement that his band Road Home has cemented a permanent lineup. Road Home was founded as a Neurosis side project (formerly Scott Kelly and the Road Home) but the addition of Neurosis band mate Noah Landis and Munly J. Munly (Slim Cessnas Auto Club) has signaled the beginning of a new era for the act.

After reading about three acoustic interludes on Agalloch’s The Serpent & The Sphere being written by a Canadian songwriter in a band called Musk Ox, I immediately found a Bandcamp page for an instrumental band from Toronto called MuskOx.

As a general rule, I tend to like pretty much everything that Sargent House puts out. After all, their roster incudes acts Russian Circles, Chelsea Wolfe, Emma Ruth Rundle/Marriages, Omar Rodriguez Lopez/The Mars Volta/Bosnian Rainbows, Mutoid Man, and Helms Alee, just to name a few. As a general rule, I also tend to really enjoy Japanese post-everything rockers Boris.
