"Their five track record 'Fern' floats into being with a blizzard of screaming guitars - a clamorous instrumental race to the beginning of the song that sounds like Earth trying to play a 'Bloody Valentine jam and freaking out under the frustration. 'The Dire and Ever Circling Wolves' with another guitar and a Scratch Acid injection." - Josh Turner (Pagan Punx)
“Deranged For Rock & Roll” is one of my favorite songs. I love Chelsea Wolfe. Everything she’s done has been made with love and passion… What can I say?! Chelsea is authentic, inspiring, talented, and a profound lyricist and songwriter. embracethevoid_
There's a solid musicianship here, a sense of tightness in performance and technical control, and it's all very impressive. I expected as much having seen their live performance with SRSQ last summer, and I'm happy that they're able to transfer their intensity between stage and studio and back again.
Heavy stuff that comes highly recommended. rikm
This album gurns and churns with the dense, atmospheric power of an angel wrestling the forces of hell.
Wolfe's voice is an ethereal swirl, but it can cut like a blade. Her guitar, meanwhile, is a reaper's scythe, and with it, she flails like a Balrog summoned deep and raging from the bowels of Middle Earth.
It's an album of dreams and nightmares, a sludge-gaze torrent of painful questions hurled into the void.
A brave, bold and empowering listen. Michael Mueller
