15. Baby Blue (New Bermuda, 2015)

“While the lyrics may not mean much, the musicianship expressed in this piece is thoroughly amazing. I can never get enough of the wicked solo near the end of the song, which really puts the icing on the cake.”

14. Exit Denied (DW Live Series 08: Live at The Blacktop 01.15.11, 2011)

“Everything sounds absolutely perfect! The bass blends with the rhythm guitar, and drums with the amazing sound of the smooth guitar that is so common with DeafHeaven.”

13. Daedalus (Roads to Judah, 2011)

5. Irresistible (Sunbather, 2013)

“Just everything right about this tune. The spellbinding and evocative story, the music including the epic guitar solo.”

4. Sunbather (Sunbather, 2013)

“Sunbather is more than a technical achievement. Unlike many other bands, the endless screams of the vocalist seek not to intimidate, convey a message of pain, or serve as a dramatic device. They are like a direct conduit into the musician’s emotions, with every moment a stream of happiness, sadness, anger, love, longing, and regret.”

3. Dream House (Sunbather, 2013)

“Dream House proves that beauty can hide and reveal itself in unexpected places. Clarke is just screaming his heart out, and as edgy as this sounds, I can feel his pain. It’s really raw. I don’t know how else to put it.”

2. Brought to the Water (New Bermuda, 2015)

“Palm-muted guitar over blast beats, to non-“Loner”-nicking (because it’s played over a major chord progression – sorry Adrien, love you man!), to mid-tempo post-black metal screams over nice chords w/ guitar fill and built-in picardy third, to piano outro par excellence.”

1. Honeycomb (Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, 2018)

“Great song; prime Deafheaven. Starts out hot and heavy with pure black metal before slowly transitioning into a pretty post-rock piece. The ending is a bit of a let down, it just kind of peters out but the song overall is pretty impressive.”
