    I made a thread about these guys a long time ago and it got :shit: all over it, but I'm hooked on this album all over again.

    The rhythms are heavy as shit, the screaming is over the top, but the guitars sound like My Bloody Valentine with Explosions in the Sky melodies over top of it. They're considered a black metal band, but the music is so melodic and joyful sounding.

    In other news, I asked an old friend if he knew the Deafheaven album and he put me on to this band. Holy fucking shitfuck. These guys are savages.

    They're as tight as Baltimore Mike in a Prius.

    Scanned it and it's too heavy for me these days.

    Listen to something more soothing and chill.

    Yes, stupid. I bet you don't. Deafheaven are 100% categorized as such. They just have some melodic leanings that have carried them beyond the usual confines. I'm not suggesting Converge fit that genre.

    I figured you were going to do that. I'm not that hung up on these labels, but Deicide are considered death metal. There's a difference.

    Death Metal is much different than Black Metal.

    Black Metal is about Satan, Death Metal is not all about Satan.

    There are all kinds of Euro fag Norwegian Black Metal bands that burn down churches and shit.

    There's black metal band members that literally kill themselves just because they think it's awesome.

    Death was a Death Metal band. Not a Black Metal band. :grad:

    You're talking like an old man. It's evolved beyond that. It's just a sound now. It's big, epic, sometimes even orchestral metal with shrieked vocals, unlike the chugga chugga chugga and the growled vocals of death metal. Do some research. Deafheaven are considered a very popular Black Metal band, and they have lyrics like this:

    held my breath and drove through a maze of wealthy homes. I watched how green the trees were. I watched the steep walkways and the white fences. I gripped the wheel. I sweated against the leather. I watched the dogs twist through the wealthy garden. I watched you lay on a towel in grass that exceeded the height of your legs. I gazed into reflective eyes. I cried against an ocean of light.

    Crippled by the cushion, I sank into sheets frozen by rose petal toes. My back shivered for your pressed granite nails. Dishonest and ugly through the space in my teeth. Break bones down to yellow and crush gums into blood. The hardest part for the weak was stroking your fingers with rings full of teeth..

    It's 5 A.M...and my heart flourishes at each passing moment.

    Always and forever.

    And for when I feel like putting a motherfucker's head through a wall, nothing soothes like Lamb of God. Chris Adler plays drums like I imagine Thor would.
