Album Review: Deafheaven – “New Bermuda”

Deafheaven‘s previous album, Sunbather,was beautifully traumatic. Honest and psychological. Cerebral. Intense. And whether you like it or not, much more black metal than shoegaze. New Bermuda is just as visceral and deep and ends up being its own beast. I didn’t think could surpass Sunbather but Deafheaven manage once more to take the dread, the expectation and the uplifting power they have… and churn out something much more darker, much more metal-entrenched and something filled with a resounding rage which we wish we as humans could channel. It strikes off any fears of complacency and is the perfect rebuttal to haters with its metal spirit. In short, it fucking exceeds everything you hoped it’d be.

“Brought To The Water” is a well-established opener, thrashing about with a frantic urgency. This is black metal at its finest, make no mistake, and as vocalist George Clarke shrieks to set the album’s pace, let’s just say get some gauze for your ears. The aggressive and heaven-tearing noise quickly spirals into beautiful melodies which is a big aspect of the band they continue to use so well. The softer parts are piano keys that really ride the dream pop wave but is the ideal funnel into “Luna” which is one of their more guitar-intricate jams.

The mid-tempo centerpiece “Baby Blue” has a hypnotic and very much so, a contemplative vibe of self-reflection that evokes what Metallica accomplished music-wise in their career. The riffage jams a la Hetfield and company’s style and is a lovely mirage painted against Deafheaven’s usual gloom and doom backdrop. Languid yet provocative. “Gifts For The Earth” helps bookend things and follows suit in a dramatic build to a melodic climax that feels more alternative than anything else. But as usual, it emulates a wall of sound which few can copy. And that originates from Sunbather. Deafheaven explore a lot here and this place of discovery exposes their roots as well as how they view the future landscape in terms of subverting genre within genre. Their genuine expression shows that in terms of black metal, they’re unafraid and willing to venture into the unknown. As New Bermuda indicates, they can take this newfound isolation and make something glorious from it. Prep yourself for this album. This is one of the most profound rock experiences you’ll have this year.

Album Review: Title Fight – “Hyperview”

Will Yip was the man who charted Pianos Become The Teeth’s new course musically. From screamo and post-hardcore to melodic, soothing beauty. Here, he does the same for Title Fight, not as extreme, but definitely in great measure and thus, completing the transformation hinted at on records like Shed and his stamp-approved Floral Green. What this record signifies is Title Fight finally delves full-fledged into the more indie side of indie-punk with high doses of experimentation, shoegaze and dream-pop abound. The punk factor is very negligible and only time will tell how this minority factor leads them on.

“Murder Your Memory” and “Dizzy” are prime examples of this – hypnotic, dark, swirling with heavy basslines. The album’s melodic and charming and not as heavy/gruff as they may have alluded to in interviews. If you’re looking for the driving upbeat rhythms that gave them the brooding sound and fanbase of old, then you’re gonna have a tough time finding it here – although “New Vision” does try to establish this.

The swing to the old style never happens in full and it must be noted that this atmosphere allows them more room to breathe and expound in terms of lyrics. Jamie Rhoden has never been more contemplative and vulnerable on a record that rarely packs the backup vocals of old.

The wispy, lo-fi, distorted, reverb aura of the album offsets anything you new about Title Fight’s nature to make brash and in-your-face post-hardcore/punk. It feels like new territory. But it is engaging and an ethereal throwback for ’90s fans. Think Nai Harvest meets Basement. It’s an unconventional album that needs a few listens but it isn’t one to write them off yet. Still, I must admit – I wanted more of the old Title Fight.
