If you have in any way followed our progression, you would have been able to tell that there is an absence of metal. This is mainly because metal is a genre which has never really caught my attention. The instrumentation is excellent, but I’ve never found solace in, or suitable situations for, the anger and screaming. The latest Deafheaven album however, is exceptional. Mixing shoegaze and black metal, with incredible instrumental pauses (like this track) to rest your mind before enveloping you with sound again. A must listen. Even for non-metal listeners like myself (helps if you in any way like My Bloody Valentine). For a proper album track, click here.
