Converge Share “Coil” From “Bloodmoon: I” Album With Chelsea Wolfe & Stephen Brodsky (Cave In)

Converge have shared a new song, titled “Coil,” from their “Bloodmoon” project with Stephen Brodsky (Cave In), Chelsea Wolfe, and Wolfe’s guitarist Ben Chisholm. This track is from their new album, “Bloodmoon: I,” which will be released on November 19 (vinyl out June 24). Converge vocalist Jacob Bannon commented:

“‘Coil‘ turned out to be one of my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of. There is an infectious slow build that ends up becoming theatrical in tone. Lyrically it was a true collaboration, with all of us expanding on each other’s ideas as they came to be. I believe Chelsea’s vocal was the starting point in that for this one. Kurt really pushed vocal harmonies to a new level as well. Encouraging many of Steve’s ideas while we were in the studio tracking together. This one really has everyone of us firing on all cylinders creatively.”

Converge Team Up With Chelsea Wolfe & Cave In’s Stephen Brodsky For New Album “Bloodmoon: I”

Converge’s Jacob Bannon said the following:

“Our dynamics are pushing and pulling in all different directions on this record, and I find that to be creatively rewarding.”

Brodsky also commented:

“I feel like everyone just kept the music in mind and wanted to do what’s best for the song.”

Wolfe added:

“The project stretched my vocals in new ways. It’s so different than what I normally sing over that I was able to open up and be vulnerable with my vocals.”

Chelsea Wolfe Shares New Touring Documentary, Releases New Song “Green Altar” And Cover Of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock”

Chelsea Wolfe has shared a new touring documentary focusing on her “Birth Of Violence” tour. You can check that out below:

Wolfe said the following about the film:

“It’s not my natural inclination to want cameras around when I’m in my head or doing vocal warmups before a show, or when I’m with friends or family backstage, but Bobby [Cochran] asked, and in the spirit of pushing myself to document that era of my musical life, I welcomed him along. Then, after the COVID-19 pandemic hit and I had to fly home from the European acoustic tour before I got to play a single show of it, I was so grateful that he had this footage and was putting it together. I wanted to share this documentary for that reason as well, for those who had tickets to canceled shows (I love you!), and as a sort of wave goodbye to the time I spent focused on Birth of Violence, as I’m now making plans for and in the headspace of the next new album.”

With this news, Wolfe has also released a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” and a new song titled “Green Altar.” She said the following about the cover:

“While preparing for the ‘Birth of Violence’ tour, I was watching a lot of Joni Mitchell videos. A 1966 Canadian performance that I found of hers ended up inspiring the video for my song ‘Highway.’ One night after working on the live set, Ben [Chisolm] and I were hanging out and I was just letting the Joni videos roll. ‘Woodstock’ came on and I started singing along. After that I simply asked Ben if he’d be into covering it with me for the tour, and we just went back into the studio and started working it out. The cover came together quite naturally and it was a treat to play on stage every night. Joni is obviously such a big inspiration to this side of my music, so it felt right to pay tribute to her.”

Chelsea Wolfe Shares New Song “Diana” From “Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack”

Chelsea Wolfe has shared a new song titled “Diana.” This track is from the soundtrack to the DC Comics series “Dark Nights: Death Metal.” That compilation was executive produced by Tyler Bates and it will be released in digital outlets on June 18 (physical copies out July 16).

Wolfe commented:

“It has been such an honor and delight to be involved in this whole project, from contributing a song to the soundtrack, to voicing Wonder Woman for the DC Comics Sonic Metalverse episodes. I really love the story and artwork of this Dark Nights: Death Metal series, and felt really drawn to Diana’s part in the story – her strength and perspective. There’s this moment in the first comic book issue where she meets with Wally West and he’s so drained from his travels and all he’s had to do. I picked up on this intimate energy between them that felt almost romantic, but more just like two old friends who have an understanding between them – a moment of comfort and respite amongst all the fighting and chaos. I ended up writing this song about that encounter. Working with Tyler Bates on ‘Diana’ was a great experience. He’s obviously so killer at creating music that feels like the soundtrack to your own movie, so between him and my co-producer Ben Chisholm there was this elevated sonic landscape surrounding the song that just brought it to a different level.”

Watch Deftones, Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Etc. Members Cover Björk’s “Hyperballad”

Mastodon‘s Brann Dailor commented:

“We are super excited and honored to be part of the ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack‘! We’ve all been fans of DC Comics and the Batman universe since we were kids, so it really means a lot for us to be able to add something to that world.”

Bates added:

“This soundtrack and motion-comic series was made by fans of comics, for fans of comics and music. ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal‘ is next-level storytelling by two incredibly talented artists in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.
