If you some how have not heard deafheaven, check out this live set shot a few months back at Vacation Vinyl. For those not in the know, Deafheaven are from San Francisco and play some beautiful post-rock influenced black metal. Hints of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Weakling. It is black metal that will make some trve kvlt elite turn their noses and make diehard fans out of others. The current wave of black metal bands from America like Krallice, the late Ludicra and super divisive Liturgy are taking the genre into new territory.
