‘Chelsea Wolfe’ released the album ‘Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs’ on the 16th of October 2012.
As the title suggest, for the most part, this is an album packed full of acoustic eerie folk/rock, effectively using strings, keys and Chelsea Wolfe’s hypnotic voice to once again make hauntingly beautiful music.
Even though this album is a step away from ‘Apokalypsis’, it doesn’t sacrifice any of the raw emotion that fans would be familiar with.
‘Laura’ released ‘The Slow’ single on the 7th of August 2012. ‘The Slow’ is originally off ‘Twelve Hundred Times’ which was released in October of 2011.
‘Laura’ are a great representation of how good post-rock can sound.
‘The Slow’ is an absolute masterpiece, showing what this band does best by massing layers together as you anticipate the climax of the song.
‘Aircraft on Blue Sea’ once again starts out with intricate guitar work that slowly builds adding noise till the crescendo is met with dramatic strings at the forefront.
Do yourself a favour and give it a listen.
‘Moghul’ released their self-titled album on September the 1st, 2012. Even though this album only has 2 songs on it, each song is an absolute marathon.
‘Dead Empires’ starts out a bluesy heavy rock affair which turns nasty along the way. The change is slow as the guitars and drums get louder and more aggressive and the vocals turn from gravelly to abrasive.
‘Hidden Hand’ once again slowly wanders through different genres and styles, touching on psychedelic, desert, drone and stoner.
This album is probably best appreciated on vinyl while wearing flares but if thats not possible, it’ll still sound good.
