(via Midnight Peacocks)
I don’t often hear violins in stoner metal, so Midnight Peacocks quickly grabbed my attention from “Tzar Bomba” and kept it throughout their entire new LP, ‘Katastroffa,’ which is out now.
From Bandcamp bio:
“The Midnight Peacocks are:
Eitan Radoshinski: Vocals & bass
Guy Shemi: Guitar & Backing Vocals
Yoav Zohar: Drums
Yoni Silver: Violin, Alto Saxophone, Bass Clarinet, Keyboards & Piano
Hezi Shohet: Poetry”
It describes the loud dreamy sound of Deafheaven (as a compliment by the way – I love how I can shut my eyes and listen to Sunbather and feel calm), but it also describes the kind of people who really love Deafheaven but don’t normally listen to metal.
Is this a spoof on the excess of 80’s hair metal in all its former druggy, over the top glory?
