When Chelsea Wolfe stepped onto stage in support of her debut album The Grime and the Glow, the black-cloaked singer often delivered her doom-folk tracks from a behind a webby chain mask or a lace blanket. Two years later, the veil has come off. The L.A. artist now appears only with pitch-dark eye makeup on stage and in the album artwork for her last release Ἀποκάλυψις and this year’s Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs. Similarly, she’s shed much of the industrial static and séance atmospherics of her previous full-lengths and embraces a stripped-down sound on her most recent.
