blackmetal

#21

yep good fun and sunny is how i’d describe it


#22

just firing up my first listen of the album now… the first track is quite… something


#23

think:


#24

I hear they’re not even proper black metal


#25

they’re pretty much not anymore on this record :smiley:


#26

That might make me posting that less relevant but it still won’t stop me.


#27

ah it’s an all-time classic meme tbf


#28

Would love to hear your early thoughts - v excited for this album and perfectly happy for them to do something strange.


#29

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


#30

Yea, I was worried about the 80’s hard rock bit in Honeycomb so this isn’t great news for me…


#31

They’ve turned into Origin of Symmetry-era Muse?


#32

it’s not that bad, nothing is.


#33

it’s not as bad as you might be fearing, I wouldn’t listen to that stuff generally either


#34

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


#35

Would you describe it as a cross between Hookworms and Opeth?


#36

…yes?


#37

tourng with Inter Arma

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 :slightly_smiling_face:

There’s the affirmation I’m fishing for!
