Big news, people! The most buzzed about band in metal are back with a new single titled “Honeycomb”. And, let me tell ya, it’s a real motherfucker. “Motherfucker” in the sense that there’s a lot to unpack here. The track begins with gentle ambience, a trick that’s pretty par for the course with these guys, before dropping the fucking hammer almost instantly. From there the band weaves in and out of nearly every facet of their personality. We get the slow building dirge of “Baby Blue” before getting into “Sunbather” black metal fury which then leads into a guitar solo lead post metal excursion before closing on gentleness reminiscent of “Gifts For the Earth”. But this band has a way of taking the familiarities of their past material and making it feel new. The accompanying video features a lot of intriguing studio footage and the band frolicking around in a park. I love everything about this. Check it out below.
From now until this album drops, it’s going to be very hard to get me to shut up about Deafheaven.
No news on an album yet, but I bet it’s coming.
