Three film and TV trailers enhanced by the music of Chelsea Wolfe
GAME OF THRONES (2014) FERAL LOVE
GOT is known for its merciless depictions of battles, sex and spilled blood, but it’s also a series about social revolutions and political turmoil. In the show’s season four trailer, Chelsea’s Feral Love (from 2013’s Pain Is Beauty) captured this spirit of change, of the breakups, downfalls and rises of the peoples of Westeros and Essos, and a world preparing for war.
FEAR THE WALKING DEAD (2015) CARRION FLOWERS
The atmosphere’s tense, dread is in the air: when the trailer for Fear The Walking Dead was released in 2015, Chelsea’s Carrion Flowers (from 2015’s Abyss) provided the perfect soundtrack for the collapse of society and the dangers waiting around every corner of this post-apocalyptic reality.
LIVE BY NIGHT (2016) SURVIVE
Although the Ben Affleck-directed movie itself turned out to be a box office flop, Live By Night’s final trailer seemed rather promising, not least because of Chelsea Wolfe’s Survive (also from 2015’s Abyss album). Sounding both tragic and seductive at the same time, the song seized the appeal of the forbidden addressed in the crime drama.
