Abyss is the latest album from “doom folk” singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe. This album is both her most accessible work but at the same time some of her darkest and most powerful work emotionally. The music throughout is dark and foreboding, with haunting vocals. At times noisy like on opening track “Carrion Flowers”, other times very serene like on the songs “Crazy Love” & “Simple Death”. This album focuses on her experiences with sleep paralysis and the intersection of consciousness and unconsciousness.
