ALBUM REVIEW: Chelsea Wolfe – Birth of Violence

The music business is ugly, hard, and not for everyone. You hear this over and over from industry types and even some artists.

Previous album Abyss (Sargent House) was a greater departure than much of her catalogue at that point with a much more prominent metallic backbone, invoking the likes of black metal, industrial and noise rock amongst a hotbed of styles.
