    I think Deafheaven's next album should be titled "Shape of Black Metal To Come", just to piss off the kvlt metal warriors even further. [2]

    From the Kettle Onto the Coil is amazing. Sounds more like Roads to Judah to me, a lot heavier than Sunbather IMO. Love the production too.

    Woah, the new song is amazing. I think the best part was the clean vocal section

    I like how their album cover is pink so BM fans know not to listen to them in case it makes them gay. [2]

    vvvv Venom and Mercyful Fate were originally labeled as BM back in the 80s, way before bands like Darkthrone started releasing albums. Logically, they're black metal.

    "Venom – Venom makes people feel good about treating life like a joke. Its humorous Satanism and poppy songs convey a basic message that the world is a farce, and it’s fun to oppose it, but nothing’s really going to change so let’s hang out and praise Satan ironically. It is no surprise this band is the favorite of hipsters." Oh ya, makes sense! Teacher's Pet is the ultimate hipster anthem, with its sexy blues rock solo and ironic lyrics about having sex during class, which later influenced those hipsters in Van Halen to write the commercially successful cock rock masterpiece known as Hawt For Teacher.

    The 'cold' atmosphere of black metal was actually developed in the early 80s. This is one of the most grimmest, most frostbitten songs ever recorded.

    look if youre going to talk your shit about "surrealism" and the "astral" aspect of black metal dont even fucking mention the first wave artists because that shit is absent; yeah venom talked a whole lot about fuckin space and shit. if you want to talk about the second wave acts who actually embodied all that shit as well as developing the cold atmosphere and sound then do that. actually, dont do that either. log off.

    "I'm not persay a Nickelback fan. But I think they're just..average." "pandering to pseudo-intellectual urban liberals" "urban (corrupted) aesthetic"

    But Varg Vikerness told me to hate brown people like Deafheaven. Oh and by the way La roux's new album is so dissapointing, so not trve Black metal!

    But muh ideology!! I could name plenty of first and second wave "true" black metal bands who are worse than this.

  • meshuggavin

    It's really easy to just say I like deafheaven or I don't like deafheaven and leave it at that. Trying to ligitimise any opinion is totally pointless. They make music, you listen to it, you decide whether you like it or not and then you move on. What genre it is, how different the album artwork is or what the band members look like is largely irrelevant if you listen to music for how it sounds.

    This is pretty far removed from first wave black metal. Trying to compare this to something like Mercyful Fate doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Sunday morning
  • Yelyah-Williams

    The backlash blackgaze gets from "true" black metal fans reminds me of old people complaining about how music in their day was the best thing ever and anything new is automatically garbage.

    Sunday morning

    Mercyful Fate is pretty bad.

  • AnarchyBrony

    V words of wisdom right there. And @baglier, those are honestly the best reasons to why Deafheaven get flank from the metal community. Finally, someone gives a definitive reason! I've mostly been weary of stuff like that because I get so sick and tired of people simply saying the band sucks other than saying 'they're hipsters' and 'they suck lol'. But in all fairness, wow!

    Saturday evening
  • Skeedzorz

    HOLY CRAP. FINALLY, A PERSON THAT DOESN'T BASH NICKELBACK BECAUSE OF STUPID REASONS. [2] That's right, I'm a Nickelback fan and I don't bash bands I hate (such as Nirvana) for stupid reasons (like Kurt ripping off Chad's haircut). I admit I sometimes feel like saying that kind of stuff but I just can't do it. why? Because unlike most dumbasses I'm a CIVILIZED human being you know, I respect other people! There is something called having an opinion, and that is when you focus on the music instead of the image! And this is a FACT, we are SICK of plebs criticizing Defheaven for all the wrong reasons. Who cares if they're hippies, they make excellent music!

    Saturday afternoon
  • Sexdude

    vv You can do both. The only positive aspect of bands like Deafheaven being (erroneously) labeled as black metal is that some of their fans might start listening to first-wave BM out of curiousity and find some pretty awesome stuff, even though I doubt they would like it, since it has a completely different sound/spirit.

    "The most important thing about your music it's not that it could be called "black metal", it's about music itself." Yeah, but this band doesn't have any substance or originality, Sunbather is about as good as a fucking Coldplay record. Tormentor and Mercyful Fate are examples of black metal bands who combined style with substance while adding their own touch (listen to Branded By Satan's intro and tell me that's not one of the most charismatic, genre-defining riffs ever made).

    Dear Deafheaven: I don't care about what people says. They have played a lot of Guitar Hero and now, even Activision, thinks that Guitar Hero its bad for business. When people tells you "hipster" they go and hide behind their assumptions. They're naive, please excuse them. The most important thing about your music it's not that it could be called "black metal", it's about music itself. I'd never understand why people self-congratulate because of the music they listen, they must have justinbieberish paranoia. They're innocent, please, forgive them.

    deafheaven gets hated by people who grew up on old bm who see deafheaven not as innovation but as a degradation that completely sacrifices the astral element of real, old bm with faux sentimentality and urban (corrupted) aesthetic and approach. [2] Liturgy is even worse musically, despite having some interesting ideas here and there.

  • AnarchyBrony

    Sad to say, it is true. But at least someone has stated a good reason why they don't like the band, other than the usual "Hipster metal' crap. I still like Deafheaven, but it's good to see someone state a valid point as to why they feel the band gets the hate other than "they're hipster black metal'.
