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:Deafheaven Interview: Life, LA, And 'Ordinary Corrupt Human Love'

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 :slightly_smiling_face:


There’s the affirmation I’m fishing for!
