Deafheaven
« on: January 19, 2014, 12:54:44 am »
Ok, so I did a review of Sunbather ~a month ago. Little did I know, a month later Deafheaven's sohphomore LP would grow on me. Today I got their first LP on vinyl (released through Deathwish records) and I can honestly say these guys are going to bring black metal in the US into a totally different direction. Every song they have released is just as much optimistic as it is atmospheric. I know since there are a large amounts of people on FT that enjoy metal, I'd like to bring their attention to this band. I honestly think these guys are the best thing to ever come out of San Francisco. I feel their music should be more known than it is. I seriously think these guys are releasing masterpiece after masterpiece and people need to hear about them. So far they have 2 LPs out, but I'm sure as time goes on, they're going to change the entire soundscape of American black metal. If you listen to a lot of post-rock, their stuff may remind you of Slowdive, MBV, Sigur Ros, Mogwai, and even Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Go ahead and give their LPs a listen to. Let me know what you guys think.
