It reminds me of how people who don't listen to metal think anything that sounds harsh with harsh vocals is death metal.

I know genres shouldn't matter that much, but this is shoegaze/black metal with a bit of post rock thrown in there. In no way, is it death metal.

This has nothing to do with hardcore punk, either. "it sounds like Envy, tho!!!" is not a valid argument in that regard.

"Sunbather hits me emotionally more than any other album that I have ever listened to. You can feel the pain with every

scream that comes off of the record. But the best thing that Sunbather has managed is finding a way to make a hopeful

shoegaze/death metal album. I love any artist that can mix more a handful of genres together at the same time, and

Deafheaven do it without a sweat."



I feel you. I think most don't appreciate because of the distorted sound of the shoegaze, which they did flawlessly.

Shoegaze/black metal/post-rock is too much for those indie hipsters

Digging: Between the Buried and Me - Coma Ecliptic

I just find it funny. The band is shoegaze/black metal/post-rock but all the guitar chords are all the same and the vocals are

unrecognizable and blend in... Have you not heard shoegaze? It's distorted guitar with unrecognizable vocals? If everything

was clear then they wouldn't be who they are. Album is flawless

BrushedRed I think everyone knows what shoegaze is you fucking asshat and it's not defined by "distorted guitar with unrecognizable vocals." Some people just don't really care for this album and it's not because it's not "clear." This album is squeaky clean compared to plenty of black metal anyway

Uh Brushed, hate to break it to you but this band is constantly labeled a hipster group and is demonized by *metal* elitists for not being black metal enough. So you've got it backwards there, in that hipster kids like this kind of "unrecognizable" "distorted" bs. Shoegaze was a totally hipster genre in the beginning, wasn't it?
