“Iron Moon”: Chelsea Wolfe Just Keeps Getting More and More Metal
No joke: the number of reader e-mails we got asking us to write about Chelsea Wolfe’s new song, “Iron Moon,” far outnumber the number of reader e-mails we got asking us to write about… well, anything, recently. Which is kinda surprising, kinda not: “Iron Moon” is a great song, and large swaths of it are doomy as hell. I’m not even entirely sure I made the right decision filing this post under “Not Quite Metal?” There’s definitely an argument to be made that it’s more metal than, say, Royal Thunder or Russian Circles (the latter of whom’s last album featured a guest appearance by Wolfe).
Regardless of the whole metal/not metal debate, the song is, like I said, totally killer, and you should definitely listen to it. Which you can do below, courtesy of Rolling Stone! The song will appear on Wolfe’s new album, Abyss, which is out August 7 on Sargent House.
