You don't hear the words black metal and ambient in the same sentence very often, but we love things that shouldn't make sense. When we heard Lena Gray, a trans artist from North Carolina, describe the music this way we knew it was probably going to be something awesome. Taking aspects of traditional black metal elements with synthwave parts and ambiance, it's not supposed to make sense but it does. The new album is called Wrapped in Flesh and it is available now.
Describing the music on Instagram, Lena says:
I made this black metal/ synthwave/ shoegaze album about identity and other stuff that's important to me. I hope some of you enjoy it!
