Deafheaven: New Bermuda - Album Review

With their third album Deafheaven continue to push the boundaries of what is expected within black metal. Returning to their heavier roots on ‘Brought To The Water’, the progression of the band since 2013’s ‘Sunbather’ is incredible, mastering technicality and emotion with an eight-minute epic of soaring instrumentation. With veteran producer Jack Shirley at the helm, the Californians’ direction is breathtaking with some mind-bending time signatures. Each song showcases a part of this band’s diversity and ‘Baby Blue’ utilises the dark, brooding type of chord progression that we have come to love from the experimental five-piece.
