yep good fun and sunny is how i’d describe it
just firing up my first listen of the album now… the first track is quite… something
I hear they’re not even proper black metal
they’re pretty much not anymore on this record
That might make me posting that less relevant but it still won’t stop me.
ah it’s an all-time classic meme tbf
Would love to hear your early thoughts - v excited for this album and perfectly happy for them to do something strange.
After first listen: ‘Honeycomb’ is pretty much the only out and out BM track, the rest is quite hard rock but in their ridiculous/amazing way
Yea, I was worried about the 80’s hard rock bit in Honeycomb so this isn’t great news for me…
They’ve turned into Origin of Symmetry-era Muse?
it’s not that bad, nothing is.
it’s not as bad as you might be fearing, I wouldn’t listen to that stuff generally either
may have over-exaggerated this slightly, there are some other BM passages, but I guess because their production is so lush you don’t notice it as much
Would you describe it as a cross between Hookworms and Opeth?

Nice Stereogum piece:https://www.stereogum.com/featured/deafheaven-ordinary-corrupt-human-love-interview/
Dying to hear this album. Sunbather and New Bermuda are probably my two most listened-to albums from their respective release years. There’s just something so satisfying about listening to one of their albums front to back.
You won’t be disappointed
There’s the affirmation I’m fishing for!
