Esquire Magazine & NPR “Best of SXSW” Deafheaven Makes Their List

My NPR colleague¬†Mike Katzif called Deafheaven “the Sigur Ros of death metal,” and he’s right on the money. The San Francisco band’s music heaves and builds and pummels majestically, and then singer George Clarke lurches defensively and shrieks angrily like a mother hawk protecting her young. Brutal and bracing, with a shoegazing indie-rock band’s ear for graceful melodicism. - Stephen Thompson
