In a couple of weeks 2014 will arrive all fresh and new and relatively untainted. Until then, however, we have the gnarled, chewed up, and thoroughly mangled remains of this year to sift through, noting the music that, no matter the volume of the fray around us, was thankfully always a little…

Seeing Bay Area Black Metal gazers Deafheaven on these pages should be no surprise- we’ve been absolutely in love with the quintet since we first heard them on 2011′s Roads to Judah and with their 2013 effort Sunbather to go off, it’s no wonder they’ve keep graduating to larger and larger rooms; the symphony needs its space. As an FYF kick off show, the band headlined alongside Justin Pearson’s art-rock bolstered hardcore band, Retox and (fellow) Bay Area act, the black metal/doom/noise duo Wreck and Reference .

UPDATE: WE ADDED A SECOND LONDON SHOW ON NOVEMBER 8TH

There’s something special about Deafheaven, that much is clear. Regardless of the outlet (New York Times, anyone) that has lauded the band’s shoegaze-ish black metal (blackgaze is not a thing, okay), the band has made waves with their recorded and live work in equal amounts. Considering the band just played at the Echoplex in Los Angeles a few months ago, the uninitiated could be tempted to say their August 23rd show was a case of been-there-done-that. They would be wrong. While their earlier two-night showcase at the Echoplex was opening for Japanese sludge-droners Boris, the three band lineup preceding them last Friday was about as perfect a set up as possible.
LONDON: Last.FM presents Deafheaven and special guest WIFE (James from Altar of Plagues) at Birthdays on October 30th.
