Deafheaven bring the heavy on new song “Black Brick”: Stream

Deafheaven are giving fans a treat in advance of their upcoming North American tour with Baroness. The post-metal act has shared a new song, “Black Brick”, a relentlessly heavy track that is being called a B-side from their latest album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, which arrived this past summer.

While the band has been described as “blackgaze”, a combination of black metal and shoegaze, “Black Brick” is a riff-heavy and thrashy track that pounds hard from the get-go and never lets up.

On the song, singer George Clarke growls with poetic lines like, “A caustic womb/ Champagne light/ After/ The sacred deep blue majesty of dawn/ Naked/ And cordial and virgin/ Patience and poise/ Twin ribbons bare.”

Ordinary Corrupt Human Love came out on July 13th, 2018, earning a rave review here at Consequence of Sound, and landing at #3 on Heavy Consequence’s list of the Top 25 Metal + Hard Rock Albums of 2018.
