WATCH DEAFHEAVEN’S DEVASTATING LIVE PERFORMANCE OF NEW SONG “BLACK BRICK” via Revolver
In 2018, Revolver went on the road with Deafheaven for our two-part documentary Corrupt Love Across America; last month, we dropped in again, on a few of the West Coast tour dates on their co-headlining run with Baroness. The group’s recently released stand-alone single “Black Brick” — a B-side from their excellent, adventurous fourth album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love — serves as a particularly vicious highlight of Deafheaven’s set. In contrast to the heavily shoegaze-inflected atmosphere of many of the quintet’s other songs, the nearly eight-minute composition is steeped in classic black-metal grimness and ferocity, both of which are only amplified live onstage. Watch the recent performance to see what we mean.
