Deafheaven – “New Bermuda” Double LP
Recorded live to tape in 2015, the follow-up to Sunbather. Taking a liberal handful or two of influence from the world of black metal, and then fermenting it with shoegazey post-rock and (weirdly) melodic pop hooks. Consequently, a very devisive and perplexing band for black metal fans, but really, who gives a shit? – if it sounds good it sounds good. Essentially, Envy with blast beats and a blackened vocal style (- hey, sounds good!).
