Chelsea Wolfe is done fucking around. The singer/songwriter just released her sixth full-length, Hiss Spun, and it’s her heaviest, doomiest record to date. Add her emotionally weighty lyrics sung in icy vocals, and listeners are set to be crushed. This time around, Wolfe surrounded herself with the likes of Converge’s Kurt Ballou and Isis’ Aaron Turner. While Hiss Spun ups the sludge factor, it’s still the dichotomy between the riffs and her vocals that makes the album unique. Wolfe’s ability to defy easy categorization has drawn praise, but also ire from those who say she’s not goth enough, or metal enough, or folk enough—but with each release, she gives naysayers a black-nailed middle finger. Chelsea Wolfe’s music will likely continue to be filled with darkness, but in the end she’ll undoubtedly have the last laugh. MARK LORE
