Yeah, but I think Tesla was the first to use it. That makes them if anything the least unoriginal.

Manks, your reasoned criticism of Wavves has been noted. I will file them under "bullshit hipster lo-fi faggotshit" in iTunes from now on. Thanks for your help.

Always good to be organized. Wavves is a major innovator of the genre.

23. Deafheaven - Roads to Judah
(Deathwish Inc.)

Black metal is my favorite genre, but a lot of the black metal I like sounds suspiciously like something else. I'm pretty lenient in what I call black metal (Liturgy? Totally. Cobalt? Why not. Alcest? I'd say so.) but even I think there might be a case to be made that the excellent four-track Roads to Judah by California natives Deafheaven ain't quite BM. Sure, the vocals are there, but much of this is tried-and-true post-metal, closer to Isis than Immortal. Genre-splitting aside, the four songs on Roads to Judah are mini-epics with spiraling structures and excellent performances. The songs become arguably the most black metal when they reach their climaxes, which are uniformly visceral, intense whirlwinds, the sound of the band forcing us to take them seriously as a frostbitten horde. And it basically works. Despite album opener "Violet" sounding like an outtake from Mouth of the Architect's The Ties That Blind for more than half its marathon length, when all the musical tension comes to a head, the catharsis is far too furious to retain the post-metal moniker. So yes, Roads to Judah is a black metal album, an unconventional one but no less excellent for its post-leanings.

"Language Games"

Funny you should say this, because I always tell folks that the first two minutes of the track "Unrequited" from Roads to Judah reminds me of something that would have been on MotA's Quietly.
