Over the past few years, one artist I’ve really come to enjoy is Chelsea Wolfe. When you listen to her music, words and voice, you instantly get swept away by the etherial vibe and beautifully haunting melodies. The last album she put out, Birth Of Violence, was one hell of a record. The stripped down nature of the songs along with the eerie sensibilities, permeate as you are drawn in more and more. During the sessions for Birth Of Violence, there were a couple other songs recorded for the album but, didn’t make the final cut. One of those songs “Green Altar” is an absolute stunner. Speaking on the song Chelsea said “‘Green Altar’ is a cherished song that unfortunately didn’t make it onto the album. It’s a love song I wrote after finding out that my dear friends (artist) Bill Crisafi and (designer) Hogan McLaughlin were engaged. I envisioned them getting married in a lush, green outdoor space outside of some majestic castle ruins.” Now that you have that vision in your mind, as you listen to the song, you can sense that in there. What a tremendous song this is. I personally would love to hear this become part of the set list rotation.
