When Chelsea Wolfe, a singer-songwriter from Sacramento now residing in Los Angeles, steps onto a stage, she does so with a supernatural energy. Long black hair and long black robes abound, Chelsea Wolfe is goth music perfection without becoming a staid genre pastiche; her music is genuinely haunting, a beautiful meditation on darkness and light. Inspired as much by black metal as neo-folk, her fourth and most recent studio album Pain is Beauty, is a momentous crescendo for Chelsea Wolfe, employing slick production to brilliant effect without compromising the emotional intensity for which she is known.
