Post rock, or rather metalgaze band that is often put into one phrase with Pelican, but the difference is that Russian Circles experiments more with ambient guitarscapes. RC doesn't necessarily build towards a musical explosion in between soft interludes, they thrive on those soft, often tender guitar harmonies that float back and forward on waves of cymbals and percussion, giving the sound a deeply-felt melancholic feel.
Northern California native Chelsea Wolfe's sound is best described with broad strokes: elemental, intense, radiant, ancient yet modern, intimate yet expansive, dark and sparkling. Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk, a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. Her voice similarly haunts and soothes, with words that illuminate life's darker corners in order to reveal the unlikely truth and beauty hidden within.
