Culture: Deafheaven @ Webster Hall, New York 2015
George Clark, the front man of the band, is spectacular. He enjoys orchestrating the masses and almost creates a symbiotic relationship with his audience, amplified by frequent stage dives. Over the whole concert he was communicating with fluid gestures and in this way he intensified the impression of his performance. Clarke`s voice is unique. His high pitched hissing screams are a defining element of the "Deafheaven experience".
deafheaven) played mostly their new album "New Bermuda", which is more focused on heavy metal traditions than the album "Sunbather", maybe a tribute to the fact that they are playing for growing audiences (you can see more pictures and the setlist here brooklynvegan).
Once again the group created tsunami waves of sound on which Clarke´s voice could surf. The result was an unique melange of grace and sheer power. I hope this sun won´t burn out any time soon.
Thanks a lot to Deafheaven for this marvelous experience.
