Thursday, July 26, 2018 2:13 PM PT

Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, the new album from California black metal/post-rock band Deafheaven, has debuted a No. 111 on the Billboard after selling roughly 6,700 copies in its first week of release in the United States. The record also landed at No. 11 on the Top Album Sales chart and No. 5 on the Hard Rock Albums chart.

For the sake of comparison, Deafheaven's previous album, New Bermuda (2015), sold 7,500 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 63 on the Billboard 200 (and No. 36 on the Top Album Sales chart).

Going back further, their 2013 album, Sunbather, bowed at No. 130 on the Billboard after selling 3,700 copies in its initial week of release.

I'd like to know what all you Deafheaven haters listen to. I just want to be as badass as you all. Please bless me with your omnipotent knowledge of music. Your taste must be so well refined...

"^^ band member setting the record straight"

Typical dipshit answer when unable to list better music. Probably a Lambesis cuck too.

typical triggered band member answer

Id rather listen to the sound of a golden retriever screaming in pain while being stabbed with a rusty philips screw-driver - than listen to this garbage

7/26/2018 10:42:54 PM

get your gear stolen losers

So I listened to this album. And it's not bad but it's not black metal and historically it's not groundbreaking either.

It's literally a modern day early hopesfall. Same riffs, same essential style, instead of hopesfall yelling they have shrieks, that's it.

Another way to describe it is explosions in the sky with some shrieks. That might even be more accurate.

Post rock for 2018. Nothing new here guys but if you get over your new=shit bias this fits in with most of your old classics.

7/27/2018 8:02:03 AM
But Pitchfork loves it, so we must all.

7/27/2018 8:34:48 AM
Huh i forgot that Hopesfall had blast beats...

7/27/2018 8:42:22 AM
What percentage of the album is blast beats? Like 1%?
What percentage of hopesfall music is breakdowns? About the same
Both are a part of the sound but superficial.

The new album is really good from front to back. Everyone rips off everyone. At least what they are doing feels somewhat fresh, goes from shoegaze to black metal to catchy melodic riffs and back. Its easily their best album

I actually enjoyed Sunbather when it came out but don't really touch it anymore. Nothing else they've done has been as enjoyable for me, but damn. You can like Mayhem and Deafheaven at the same time ya fckin turds.

7/27/2018 3:44:14 PM
FÜCK off... good band

7/28/2018 1:53:56 PM
