Chelsea Wolfe’s Abyss is Littered with “Carrion Flowers”

Gothic songstress Chelsea Wolfe has been a consistent source of brooding, textured sounds touching down upon a variety of styles. She has already released “Iron Moon” from Wolfe’s upcoming fourth album Abyss, which may be streamed here. A strong Neurosis vibe emanates from the track, likely due to the input from members of Russian Circles on the album. Now, the album’s lead track “Carrion Flowers” has been released, and in line with Wolfe’s past career holds a rather starkly different musical approach. Head past the jump to stream the track:

The lyrics for the track are as follows:

WE LEARNED HOW ON OUR OWN
NEVER NEEDING HELP FROM YOU
REACHING OUT WITH EYES CLOSED
WE FELT THE LIGHT, IT TAUGHT US TO GROW
(HOLD, HOLD, HOLD ON)
CREATURES OF HABIT, CARRION FLOWERS
GROWING FROM REPEATED CRIMES
THE AFTERGLOW IN FULL BLOOM
SLOW AND RELENTLESS, WE’RE AFTER YOU
HOLD ON TO THE PAIN
OF LOVE TAKEN FROM YOU –
A PLAGUE
(HOLD, HOLD, HOLD ON)

“Carrion Flowers” focuses on the electronic elements of Wolfe’s previous album Pain Is Beauty in a significant way. With pulsating electronics, the track takes on a pulsating, industrial tone which fans of Author & Punisher and The Soft Moon may find intriguing. IF these two tracks are any indicator, this album will be an absolute monster of a record. Additionally, when posting about the track, Wolfe commented that there is a “music video coming soon.” HBIH will provide an update once the video is released, but in the mean time, Abyss may be pre-ordered here.
