Deafheaven Made Album

2021-06-08 by Jesper L. CONTRIBUTOR | 220 Comments
Blackgaze stagediving pioneers Deafheaven have more or less announced their new album, Infinite Granite, due August 20th. The band's website features a password protected something, which is cool even though all the highly classified information can also be found on Reddit. Lead single 'Great Mass of Color' could be released one day from now, June 9th. The new album will probably feature vocals.

Witness the album art here: https://images.genius.com/50071f57256a4cbbada612a88e8d0c26.1000x1000x1.jpg

Tracklisting:
1. Shellstar
2. In Blur
3. Great Mass of Color
4. Neptune Raining Diamonds
5. Lament for Wasps
6. Villain
7. The Gnashing
8. Other Language
9. Mombasa

Update: first single 'Great Mass of Color' does indeed feature vocals and can be heard here:

Deafheaven always been a band I appreciated far more than I actually enjoyed listening to. I liked their last album the most. I don't know what it is with bands like this, reminds me of Pianos Become the Teeth last album. "Hey guys let's kinda go P/R aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand our balls just fell off". Would gladly welcome more P/R vibes with their balls still attached over shoegaze, personally. this aint it chief =( maybe other songs..

I gave the new single a few listens this morning. The last minute of the song kind of reminds me of the end of Canary Yellow which was one of the best songs from OCHL. Therefore, I am going to reserve judgement and optimistically agree with Hawks.

https://consequence.net/2021/06/deafheaven-infinite-granite-great-mass-of-color/

"According to the press release, singer George Clarke’s black metal howls are at a minimum on Infinite Granite. Instead, he employed “falsettos, whispers, multi-part harmonies, and other adventurous vocal treatments” to utilize his full range. Meanwhile, guitarists Kerry McCoy and Shiv Mehra incorporated more synth textures alongside their expressive fretwork."

It’s weird that anyone’s surprised by this- I mean they’ve flirted closer and closer to psych-tinged shoegaze for a while now.

I personally think George’s croony-vibrato fits really well here— leagues better here than that last soft take from the last LP. My only gripe is their decision to cull his screams w all them effects at the end(?). Regardless, hyped 4 this

Song's interesting, I like his clean voice a lot, but I hope they add some more aggressive tracks in between cause a whole album of this would be insufferable. If they balance it out nicely, they could have smth really special with this one.

Haven’t been sold on anything this band has done, yet this is more likeable.

This somehow gets better every time I listen. I love the chilled out vibe. I'm sure this is the softest on the record, but, like, I just accidentally looped this like 7 times in a row while working and loved every second.

The only thing that I could critique this track on is that it neither stands out as sounding unique or original, nor does it really sound all that much like Deafheaven. I love the vibe and sound though, so I am looking forward to hearing the full album.

This is some straight-up stress-reducing drug. 12 plays in a row, well over an hour. Woulda never expected Deafheaven to sound quite like this but honestly I love it. Exactly what I needed this morning while I catch up on 2 days of missed work while ultra stressed. I get some people disliking it vehemently but I'm proud to sit in the opposite end of the spectrum.

It's. A. Bop.

I expected to be disappointed and then remembered I was already bored of what they were doing with OCHL. This is the smart thing for them to do and I think the song is pretty good, the style works, and the build/payoff was nice. Hoping they can make the whole album pretty dynamic though or it's going to get real boring.

I think it is absolutely fucking brilliant. This makes a lot more sense than PBTT going completely clean. The softer moodier melodic transition of Deafheaven should shut up the blackgaze/black metal elitists, but lo and behold we have people bitching. It is fucking funny. XD

IMO, the transitional period for Deafheaven has been way less awkward compared to bands like BMTH, Underoath, and even Thrice.

Underoath did not have a "transitional period" they had all hits and one huge miss released as a comeback album.

""IMO, the transitional period for Deafheaven has been way less awkward compared to bands like BMTH, Underoath, and even Thrice."

what on earth is Thrice doing in this list, their 'transition' has been 'Beggars but with slightly less energy and dynamics on every album'

song was losing me for a bit but using the gazey/clean stuff to build into the screamy bits worked like a charm -- I hate when bands try to isolate their harder and softer sounds into separate tracks and never blur the lines. basically the last minute of Great Mass of Color redeemed the previous 5 for me

Let’s all be real, George’s screams were never that great (well except for “I WANT TO DREAM!”). I think the singing is cool and has much more of a dominant Morrisey vibe rather than the “buried in the mix” whispery signing of other similar acts. If they can balance the black metal with this vibe, it could be something cool and different.

i think this new wave bm vibe fits pretty well with them and i cant wait to see bm larpers go absolutely insane over it.

real bad take right here. they were perfect on the demo-sunbather era recordings

His "black metal" skramz were always intense and awesome, but they got old after 4 albums of just screaming. (besides Night People) Super happy about this stylistic change. Might even be their finest work next to Sunbather if they pull it off correctly.

George's screams are perfectly serviceable but agreed that just for my personal tastes I need some variety after a while. This is a direction I'm very glad to see them veer in.

Idk why people keep saying this as if bm nerds shouldn't be elated that the fake bm hipster band finally dropped their facade and just went full indie rock
