CHELSEA WOLFE – ” Hiss Spun “

It was only a matter of time before Chelsea Wolfe up and recorded a metal album. “Hiss Spun” is, more or less, that album. Produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge and featuring guests such as Sumac’s Aaron Turner and Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen, it’s a set of loud, blistering, powerful dirges and rippers that end up being some of the most immediate tracks in Wolfe’s repertoire. Wolfe exorcises some hard-rocking demons in “Vex” and “Hiss Spun,” while retaining some industrial darkwave eeriness in “Offering,” though it’s an album short on songs that aren’t standouts. It’s a weird irony that her most explicitly metal album to date is also her catchiest, but why question synchronicity when it comes out sounding this great.
