I think it's amazing that they are (more or less) playing Sunbather in it's entirety. Can't wait to see them in September

Deafheaven is the most talked about band in extreme metal right now. Ever since the release of Sunbather last year, the group has been at the forefront of the metal scene for most mainstream publications - they topped lists at Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine and more - while simultaneously garnering praise from the metal side of things. Fan or not, it's easy to acknowledge the huge impact Deafheaven has had on metal.

Luckily, Deafheaven can back up all the talk they get with an absolutely stellar performance. The band took the stage to a backing tape and no interaction with the crowd, but frontman George Clarke is intimidating and a master at inciting crowd interaction. Clad in all black, he is constantly motioning to the crowd for more movement and climbing on top of them while screaming - at one point during "The Pecan Tree," he even crowdsurfed a bit. Not your typical black metal frontman, but it was a welcome sight for sure. Guitarist Kerry McCoy played well off the other instruments, including adding some improvised guitar solos that aren't present on album which just added to the layers of outstanding guitar-work from the band all night long. The layers of tremolo picking segued brilliantly to their mid-song transitions that showed off their obvious shoegaze influence, but parts of "Sunbather" and "Vertigo" were classic brutal black metal. Deafheaven has a lot of talk surrounding them, but as long as they keep putting on performance like this, they'll always outweigh any talk.

Profound Lore mainstay Pallbearer was the direct support on the tour and they brought their extremely heavy brand of doom and executed it nearly perfectly. The setlist for the night comprised of mostly songs from their upcoming album "Foundations of Burden," including the title track and "The Ghost I Used To Be" which was released online a few hours before the concert. The thing that makes Pallbearer stand out from the huge doom explosion from a few years back is they know that they can be heavy while also throwing in heavy metal riffing and guitar solos - they can be just as heavy and sludge-y as their peers in Cough and Windhand, but the melodies and subsequent riffing make them stand out. The band also performed "Devoid of Redemption" and "Foreigner" from their first album "Sorrow and Extinction," with the latter being particularly crushing. Some fans at shows past have complained about the vocals being buried in the mix at Pallbearer shows, but the sound was fantastic for their performance - a nod to the Granada's soundsystem and mixing for that one.

Opening the show was Wreck and Reference from California. The band is a two-piece with a rather unique take on heavy/doom metal - the vocalist plays a touchpad that is usually reserved for DJ's. However, he programmed harsh noise samples onto the buttons and played it almost like a guitar while screaming into the microphone, resulting in a fantastic harsh noise mixed with sludge metal style that replicated everything a guitar could've done and more. The drummer also provided some vocals, though it seemed like some of his vocals were pitchshifted down - maybe that was just the almost overwhelming loudness of everything at that point taking over. Perfect for fans of Godflesh, Neurosis and Khanate for sure, and a perfect opening band.
