Paul Schwarz Deafheaven are like YONL. Happy to slowly "catch up". Like w lots of CGs, esp BP (inc BPoH, BPiS, BPiSunshine). Caleb Bratcher Some of the drum transitions are fantastic and the shoegaze element really makes the album stand out among a sea of mediocre black metal. It's hard to say something about deafheaven that hasn't already been said but that's because they are just so fantastic.

Roads to Judah is the debut studio album by the American blackgaze band Deafheaven. The album was released by Deathwish Inc. on April 26, 2011.

Deafheaven : Roads to Judah,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. What Roads to Judah is, is one of the purest examples of the post black metal sound I’ve come across, existing in perfect symbiosis with each individual sound. Compared to a band like Alcest, who more often than not entered in the realm of pure shoegaze, Deafheaven focus much more on the black aspect of the post black style. Yet even with the amount of black metal, Deafheaven manage to mix things up by injecting a hefty dose of post rock into their sound

Sunbather is the second studio album by the American metal band Deafheaven. After the release of their debut record Roads to Judah, the then two piece group consisting of George Clarke and Kerry McCoy began work on Sunbather under the label Deathwish and recorded in several days in January 2013. The recording process brought a third member into the fold with drummer Dan Tracy who would go on to become a permanent fixture of the band.

Deafheaven’s have been turning heads towards their direction ever since their inception, and with their first full length, Roads to Judah it is easy to see why. Focusing on a much more post rock inspired wavelength than many other bands within the field, yet still keeping the metallic fury, Deafheaven have created a competent mixture of the more mellow varieties of post rock with blistering black metal and even the odd touches of screamo. Black Emperor or Post Royal album. Deafheaven, along with Cold Body Radiation, are one of the best bands to perfectly blend black metal with post rock. Unlike a lot of bands within the style, Deafheaven flirt with both sides of their sound equally. Deafheaven are able to create long, emotional black metal songs that, with the exception of George Clarke’s anguished screaming, doesn’t have a drop of malice. The melodies are beautiful and highly melodic; with post rock leads constantly flowing within the black metal foundations.

Recorded by Jack Shirley (guitarist of Comadre), "Roads to Judah", is a hypnotic thirty eight minute plunge into hazy musical darkness. A dizzying hybrid of Shoegaze shimmer, Hardcore vulnerability, and Black Metal intensity. From the opening drone of the album it's as if we are are peering through a dream into the private world that is Deafheaven's "Roads to Judah". Layers and layers of instrumentation build, tangle and swirl before the real onslaught begins.

Deafheaven’s Roads to Judah is a sign of the times, a genre-unifying work that’s sure to floor listeners whether they’re wearing pastel v-necks or sleeveless leather shirts. Fuck subgenres- in a vehement exhibition of vast soundscapes and keen precision, Roads to Judah supersedes them. Not only is it the most exciting of the year thus far according to hordes of listeners, but its sublime technicality and immersion proves that it’s perfectly deserving of this title, as well. The dense release doesn’t concentrate on technical tidbits as much as it does executing complete, emotional inundation.

was it just mine, or the sound of this particular pressing was so bad that made my ears actually hurt? does it have to do with the 33rpm speed? it's like the mids were so high that it was almost unbearable. to listen and i had to return it.
