SWANSEA CONSTELLATION SHOW #018
———————————————————-

UT CONNEWITZ and SWANSEA CONSTELLATION present

DEAFHEAVEN (San Francisco, California, USA – Deathwish Inc.)

is an American post-black metal band that formed in 2010 with vocalist George Clarke and guitarist Kerry McCoy, who previously performed in a grindcore band together. Clarke isn‘t sure how he arrived on the name Deafheaven, though he is aware of its appearance in William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29. The two words „deaf“ and „heaven“ were combined as an homage to Slowdive.

Their music is described as „A dizzying hybrid of shoegaze shimmer, hardcore punk passion, emo vulnerability, and black metal intensity.“ They have cited a wide range of musical influences, including, but not limited to, Morbid Angel, The Smiths, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Orchid and My Bloody Valentine.

WEEKEND (San Francisco, California, USA – Slumberland)

When they began, it sounded as though Weekend’s three main sources of musical inspirations were a Twizzler-twined mix of the shoegaze pop of My Bloody Valentine, the dystopian fuzz guitar of the Jesus & Mary Chain and a shower sing-along to Ian Curtis of Joy Division. But on their new album „Jinx“, they‘re beginning to shed their obvious resemblances to past heroes and take shape into their own style.
