After releasing “Hiss Spun” last year, Chelsea Wolfe has been touring in support of the record. Currently on the road in Europe, the experimental queen has released a new video clip today. Watch now here the haunting new video for “The Culling” filmed in Salem, Massachusetts in March 2017.
Inspired by the 1996 film, “Romeo + Juliet”, along with the work of artist Bill Crisafi, the dark video for “The Culling” was co-directed by Wolfe and Crisafi, portraying “the thin line between dreams, memories, and possession.” The contribution of artist, Ashley Rose Couture who created the costume design from hair, tree bark, and other completely organic materials, factors in largely to the video’s strong impact. In the video, Wolfe plays takes on the roles of the possessed, the demon, and the necromancer overseeing it all.
