Chelsea Wolfe is the reigning queen of goth-folk. On her sixth LP she hasn’t completely forgone that aesthetic, but instead poured a heavy dose of sludge metal on top. The intensity and darkness that she’s been known for has been turned up so you’re met with a wall of industrial, hard-hitting (and yet melodic and heartfelt) fuzz.
