Invisible Oranges /Live Report: Alcest, Deafheaven in NYC


Alcest played Public Assembly in Brooklyn on Saturday (3/31) with support from Los Angeles’ Deafheaven and New York’s Vaura. It was Alcest’s first NYC appearance since their tour with Enslaved last September, following the release of Alcest’s Les Voyages de l’Âme, the band’s third full-length and next step in the meandering evolution of their ethereal/shoegaze/post-black metal.

The show was sold out, and Fred Pessaro (BBG) from Brooklyn Vegan deejayed a set of thrash, punk, death, grind, hardcore, and black metal to get things going. I’m pretty sure it was the only time I’ve heard Inquisition’s “Command of the Dark Crown” played as part of a DJ set. That’s awesome.

Deafheaven were next and absolutely killed it. The frontman was goddamn electrifying. He furiously belted out his lyrics, taking breaks to cover his face with his forearm in pained exasperation, and frequently stood on top of a couple of gear cases he had stacked up to dangle the mic stand above the crowd. The crowd reacted enthusiastically and began to mosh (see pics below)- something that didn’t happen for any other band that night. They played most of their debut  Roads to Judah, and were flawless in execution. Deafheaven is a must see band.

"It makes sense that Alcest and Deafheaven would find each other to tour the US, both infusing elements of modern black metal and shoegaze into intriguing amalgamations of sound that have been exciting fans and critics for years. The finely crafted show-space of Philly’s North Star venue served as a fitting backdrop for both bands who deliver a delicately balanced attack that infuses abrasiveness with beauty within dense musical frameworks that engulf would-be listeners.

…Deafheaven are no strangers to Blow The Scene and for good reason- The band offers a unique take on modern black metal that also incorporates the use of tension building techniques that also grow into monstrous segments of piercing intensity with dense melodic guitar-work and thick, often blast-beat induced drumming that is both emotional and jarring. The band’s debut studio album, Roads to Judah on Deathwish Inc., made numerous year-end top lists from some of the world’s most respected music outlets. You won’t find heavy mosh or stage-diving at a concert of this ilk, but rather, an enthusiastic following of fans who are deeply tuned in and ready to absorb these compelling song structures. “
