Deafheaven Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

Ordinary Corrupt Human Love is Deafheaven's fourth studio album since 2011. Since their second album, Sunbather, the group has expanded beyond the limits of black metal. This album is their most expansive effort to date, taking its inspiration from Graham Greene and Julio Cortázar. Jim says the sweet and sour sonic combination works well for him. The cathartic release is there, but with a bit of hope to avoid total despair. Greg says the songs that stick closer to the metal/shoegaze hybrid of their previous albums are great, but some of the more experimental tracks fall flat for him. He says Night People is a goth ballad that belongs on the American Horror Story soundtrack, while You Without End is a Broadway song with a guitar solo straight out of a Queen or Boston album from the 1970s.
