Not that we're going to immediately respond to Varg Vikerness' (aka black metal king Burzum) request to help fund his latest law suit via crowdfunding, but black metal still holds a special place in our musical heart. The latest wave of American black metal bands impress us infinitely too, with Liturgy, Vattnet Viskar and the outright impressive Deafheaven.
Deafhaven – the name hails from Shakespeare's ‘Sonnet 29’ – resides, ironically, in sunny San Francisco. Deafheaven's black metal has had us by the scruff of the neck ever since their debut – ‘Road To Judah’ from ’11. They avoid clichés like the plague. Their latest album ‘Sunbather’ is even provided with a pink(!) cover and they inject their black metal with post rock and shoegaze. Pitchfork called the album a modern classic and also better than any other black metal album released this year. Fans of Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky and Joy Divison who'd like to look a little further: dive into the unknown, 'cause this is your daring thing!
