Over the course of their first ten years- Deafheaven’s music vacillated between tormented beauty and harmonic rage—a hybrid of black metal’s malice and shoegaze’s sublime wall-of-sound. On their fifth album 'Infinite Granite' Deafheaven are no longer toying with the juxtaposition of pitting metallic abrasion against swirling grandeur. Quite the opposite: 'Infinite Granite' is a bold and brave leap forward a gorgeous and invigorating album brimming with style and splendor. In the context of their catalog it takes on a whole other layer of defiant beauty. - - Across 'Infinite Granite' vocalist George Clarke showcases a startling vocal range; falsettos whispers multi-part harmonies and other adventurous vocal treatments with his trademark black metal-inspired howls mostly absent. Guitarists Kerry McCoy and Shiv Mehra expand their sonic palette to include synth textures using them to enrich their astral guitar work rather than outright replace it. Drummer Daniel Tracy has always been a force to reckon with behind the kit but where he used to floor audiences with his speed and stamina he’s now free to broaden his approach and lay down authoritative drum patterns that together with bassist Christopher Johnson’s punchy bass lines anchor the band’s lofty arrangements. The refinement of their sound was further encouraged by producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83 Paramore Wolf Alice Metric) who lent a pop ear to the record. Jack Shirley who helped produce every previous Deafheaven album remained on board to engineer 'Infinite Granite' at his Atomic Garden East studio in Oakland CA along with additional engineering and mixing from nine-time Grammy Award winner Darrell Thorp (Foo Fighters Radiohead Beck). Ultimately 'Infinite Granite' is Deafheaven’s most goosebump-inducing album to date.
