Deafheaven are like YONL. Happy to slowly "catch up". Like w lots of CGs, esp BP (inc BPoH, BPiS, BPiSunshine). Anyway, RtJ is a cracking first official shot - and just like YONL, even that first rough DEMO from BEFORE this has GOLD in them thar hills!
Favorite track: Tunnel of Trees.
Some of the drum transitions are fantastic and the shoegaze element really makes the album stand out among a sea of mediocre black metal. It's hard to say something about deafheaven that hasn't already been said but that's because they are just so fantastic.
Favorite track: Unrequited.
Powerful stuff. It's the band's crowning achievement and has never been too far from my ears. The album's allure remains in continually coming back to it and still find plenty to be impressed about.
Favorite track: Language Games.

Why do people like this music? Because they hate how it carries them away? How it transfers sound into inner peace? How it is right on, as a combination of all right sounds and tempo; like a violent peace that it is?
