I have never both loved and hated a genre tag as much as "dream thrash"

I want to like this but the vocals are kinda killing me

I loved their first EP, enjoyed a few tracks from the debut, but the production was odd and I couldn't get into the whole thing. I still feel like these guys could make a killer record one day.

With an entirely different vocal scheme yeah. I saw them play a couple months ago, and barring the terrible mixing, the only thing that wasn’t cool as fuck was the clean singing

Dreampop/shoegaze played at thrashy tempos.

The drums sound a lot better on this than they did on Air. Not really feeling the vocals at this point in time, but they sound pretty on par with Air from what I recall, perhaps a little more spacey on this.

the vocals would be okay if they were produced in a way that made them more up front (as in less reverb and delay? idk)
think that's how you get to be more Mew than random squeaky-clean modern prog metal

Never heard of these guys, but that track sounded great. I'll pretend I never saw the term "dream thrash"...

nah man i think they nailed it on this one - the expression on the vocals comes through at the same time as sounding spacey and ethereal. sounds great.

Ugh no wonder. Reminds me of when I learned recently that Azusa coined the term "avant thrash" lol

You guys act like Dream Thrash isn't a pretty apt genre description of the music. What would you call it?

Hope you like it bloc. It's addicting to me, so catchy that I listened to its tracks hundreds of times in the first couple weeks I discovered it. I found it a the perfect time, landing in Vancouver in the middle of summer. Every morning I'd wake up, buy a fat blunt from the nearby dispensary, take the train to downtown, get high as fuck and listen to Air on repeat as loudly as possible while exploring the city and buying metal shirts. That was a really good summer. I have cemented very fond memories with that album.

It may not do a ton for you but it hits every checkbox for me. Never heard anything like it.

I love Deafheaven and this is right up that alley!! This is really fantastic stuff!!

FYI it's like Deafheaven Dream House album but with melodic vocals, no shrieking.

In certain moments it almost drifts into really poppy vocal layering but overall it's really fresh and I am about to try their other stuff!

Check this out!!!!

And their new song is even poppier. Vocals seem less distorted and are higher in the mix. Like I said in the other thread it sounds like a Blink 182 chorus and I fucking love it. Really hyped about the new album.

That's fair dbizz, it's not for everyone. I just like my metal as passionately happy as possible when I can get it, and that's not often, but I think these guys nailed it.

Ya new album is pretty wonderful. At the moment even after 5-6 listens I'm trying to discern the songs. A few melodies popped into my head today so I think it's starting to work.

The only thing that bums me out a bit, and this might just be me, is I think the instrumentals took a hit to service the front-and-center vocals. At least I'm not finding as many memorable riffs as in Air, just a lot of great chorus vocals.
