EP204: Deafheaven VINYL CAGE MATCH “Sunbather” vs “Infinite Granite”

When Metallica’s “Black Album” was released in 1991 Glenn and I looked at each other with confusion and exclaimed “There’s no Metallica in my Metallica!”  Gone were the screaming vocals, the long overly complicated song structures and pissed off aggression.  I had this same feeling again in 2021 with the release of Deafheaven’s “Infinite Granite.”  It was a far cry from their 2013 masterpiece “Sunbather” (their “Master of Puppets” if you will) and I was confused and a little bit sad though I quickly came around.  Being unfamiliar with the band or either record, neither Glenn nor Rod endured such a burden so I thought, “let’s get their unbiased take” by pitting the two records against each other in a VINYL CAGE MATCH and that’s exactly what we did.  The results surprised me.  Turns out those guys have pretty good taste.
