Waarom eens niet een nummerke pennen voor een DC Comic? La Wolfe schudt een dergelijke song waarschijnlijk binnen enkele minuten uit haar mouw: duister, huiveringwekkend, distorted, ... maar ze laat haar zang wel ferm contrasteren door het zeer lieflijk te houden. Huiveringwekkend mooi gedaan.
This summer, we’re getting an all-star soundtrack album for a comic-book series. DC Comics is working with Loma Vista to put out an album inspired by DC’s new dystopian series Dark Nights: Death Metal. Tyler Bates, the former Marilyn Manson collaborator who now scores movies like the John Wick and Guardians Of The Galaxy films, serves as executive producer, and it seems like he was very involved in putting everything together. The compilation features comics-inspired songs from artists like Denzel Curry, Soccer Mommy, IDLES, and Show Me The Body, and we’ve already posted the Mastodon joint “Forged By Neron.”
Chelsea Wolfe contributes her song “Diana", inspired by Wonder Woman.
Last year, DC made an animated YouTube series as a companion piece to Dark Nights: Death Metal, and some of the artists from the soundtrack album played characters. Chelsea Wolfe played Wonder Woman, which is just smart casting. “Diana,” Wolfe’s song for the soundtrack, is about the character. It’s a heavy trudge of a song that takes advantage of her powerful vocal range. Wolfe recorded “Diana” with Tyler Bates, her regular collaborator Ben Chisholm, and her Mrs. Piss bandmate Jess Gowrie.
