The Haunting of Mary Shelley

If you live in the south and own a lot of black clothing, chances are you've bumped into Valentine Wolfe at some point during the last few years. The band has comecome a mainstay at genre and steampunk conventions, playing eveything from DragonCon to ConCarolinas to ... well, my wedding. (Although performing their original music based on "A Song of Ice and Fire" with George RR Martin in the audience was probably more memorable to them than my wedding.) I've known them for a while and even had to good fortune to share the stage with them back with I was still dabbling in music, and it was love at first sight. (Note: Valentine Wolfe has also contributed a new take on Robert Cobert's DARK SHADOWS theme to the CHS podcast, if I can ever get the damned thing finished.)

Valentine Wolfe has a new album set for release in October and it looks to be an abolute corker. It's a concept album celebrating the 200th anniversary of the publication of "Frankenstein" titled "The Haunting of Mary Shelley or, A Vindication of the Rights of the Departed." Frankenstein's monster and Valentine Wolfe's brand of "chamber metal" looks to be a match made in one of the more glorious corners of hell.

They've set up a Kickstarter campaign for "The Haunting of Mary Shelley" with a variety of stretch goals. You should absolutely check it out. You can find it HERE.
