The Culling

Album: Hiss Spun (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • While Chelsea Wolfe and her band were visiting her former canyon home north of Los Angeles, her long-term collaborator, bassist Ben Chisholm, recorded the sounds of coyotes howling and motorcycles riding by. "He ended up manipulating them and making them into this weird beat that we used on the breakdown for 'The Culling,'" Wolfe told Billboard magazine. "That was a weird one, but I really like how that turned out. It's nice to create new sounds that people haven't used before."
