Deafheaven are genre gymnasts, mixing black metal, shoegaze, and post-rock. They became critical sensations with their 2013 sophomore effort, Sunbather, a favorite metal album for people who don’t ordinarily listen to metal. While their new album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, has moments of blackened ferocity, they also double down on their lighter tendencies, capturing sheer beauty thanks, in part, to the use of grand piano. With Drab Majesty and Uniform.
