Worse than Dark Funeral? You decide.
Deafheaven are the flag bearers of black metal’s decline, (dis)gracing the masses with another steaming pile of shit – a trend ridden mess that was cleverly entitled “Ordinary Corrupt Human Love” complete with lyrics that bring Pantera and Tupac to mind in how they over-blow simple mundane topics to melodramatic proportions while still trying to retain their “satanic street cred.” It’s safe to say this is not metal or “good” music.
This is wigger muzak, the byproduct of bored alcoholic morons with 7-string guitars making monophonic fart noises (“playing”) into a laptop, posting it on bandcamp, and accidentally getting signed by the risible farce peddlers working at, where else, “Anti-” records – a label that specialises in “indie rock” and “alternative metal,” two genres that describe Deafheaven’s music much better than “black metal” – somewhere along the way. The “graffiti culture” artwork that looks stolen from a Coldplay album and the genre tag of “post black metal” should say it all.
There is no atmosphere or even coherence to any of the music on “Ordinary Corrupt Human Love” as everything is arranged section by section to pander to the various brain dead sub-cultures of the day through constant indecision over genre, style and even temperament. On the carousel of shit, you get random deathcore, nu metal, goth rock, emo, Watain crap, punk rock, shoegaze, djent, more deathcore, some riot grls shit, and literally Korn chugs… and this piece of fecal overflow band never makes up its mind on what kind of shit it wants to be. Notice anything missing? That’s right, black metal. There’s no black metal on “Ordinary Corrupt Human Love” despite the album being advertised as such.
Deafheaven’s music has no meaning – it was written solely for the use as a backdrop for social interaction among the literally retarded. This heaping mass of rotting feces destroys brain cells and causes wiggerfication faster than other wigger culture related activities like “huffing paint” and “smoking plastic.” I wouldn’t wish this level of banality to reach the ears of even the biggest of posers – i.e. Roger “Inferanus” Tiegs – though it’s not so much charity, but more like a “fear” of him getting inspired by other people competing with him for the shittiest music imaginable.
If you care about better education, a destiny among the stars, anything – steer clear of this album that might as well have been the Insane Clown Posse’s response to Metallica’s “Lulu.” Avoid at all costs. “Ordinary Corrupt Human Love” is what happens when you are retarded and people lie about your mental condition. It’s cruel, both to the retard and those having to listen to its “music.” Replace with “Verminlust” or “Angel of Disease” or something not retarded.
