I guess I'm out of touch.
Their latest album was actually on both Amazon and Spin's top albums of the year, alongside Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Arcade Fire, Kanye, Drake, Queens of the Stone Age.. yeah, they're pretty hot right now. They're not really anything original (or even that good imo), but they seem to have hit the sweet spot of image, sound, and place for alot of crossover appeal.

On topic, somewhat interested in seeing Intronaut, but probably not enough to go to this.

yeah my "token vaguely metal" claim is turning out to be pretty accurate

amazon - #16 overall (only metal), plus "best hard rock/metal" artist & album
av club - #3 (only metal)
decibel - #11 (n/a duh)
revolver - #2 (n/a duh)
spin - #22 (kvelertak only other)

im sure it will place high on pitchfork too

I understand what you're saying but theyre not "vaguely" metal. Sure they're a metal band that popular indie music publications love, but I'd argue Sunbather has more metallic qualities than BTBAM's latest and maybe even Intronaut's latest.

oh for sure, im not at all claiming they arent metal, i meant "vaguely metal" more in the general sense of that typical token spot, indie-friendly heavy bands that people who dont generally listen to heavy stuff gush over.

Shoegaze with Black Metal and Post-Rock all in one. Get over it.

Listening to deafheaven now.


Sounds like upbeat Deftones instrumentals with black metal vox.

For sure, I get you. This year it's Deafheaven, last year it was Baroness and 2011 was Liturgy.

Hell yes they do. I've seen them three times in as many years, and I don't even go to that many shows these days.
