See below for ten photos from London's Islington Assembly Hall by William van der Voort

As Kate Hennessy wrote in a recent review of Chelsea Wolfe's latest full length Abyss, "Metal isn't a hobby sport - or so the story goes. It is more than the sum of its distortion pedals, down-tuned guitars and molten cymbals. Metal is a cradle-to-grave church of the outsider; birth occurring when you first heard Black Sabbath, Slayer or Metallica. On Abyss, however, Los Angeles' Chelsea Wolfe dabbles in it, owns it, then walks away."

As Wolfe tours the album around UK this month, William van der Voort headed down to her London show to photograph her playing the Islington Assembly Hall in London. See the photos in the gallery below.
