Chelsea Wolfe has shared ‘The Culling’, the final and most expansive single from her upcoming album Hiss Spun. Stretching out to six minutes, the track begins with a tense atmosphere of foreboding, slowly growing into a dense mass of guitar, bass, electronics, and drums.

Of ‘The Culling’, Wolfe says, “I’m at odds with myself, exploring different characters, comparing war stories…desperation, withdrawal, clarity, disgust, grief. There is a sense of feeling like a vulnerable mess, but giving into that and turning it into some kind of beautiful decadence; becoming stronger through accepting the mess of yourself…accepting that you’re this feral creature full of instincts, cycles, rage and love.”

She also defined the four words she repeats at the end of the song:

Flux – movement, flow

Hiss – positive life force

Welt – brutality of life

Groan – sensuality, death

Hiss Spun, Wolfe’s sixth album, is out September 22nd on Sargent House.

Chelsea Wolfe shares new song ‘Vex’, featuring harrowing bellows from Aaron Turner (SUMAC, Old Man Gloom). Dynamic, heavy, and raw, her sixth album Hiss Spun (Sargent House, 22 September), also features prominent guitar contributions by Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure) throughout.

With heavy hints of Cranes, ‘Vex’ is a dark, intense and claustrophobically gothic track, brimming with drama and tension. It’a also her heaviest cut to date. Listen to it here:
