California black-metallers Deafheaven are riding high off of last year's reception to fourth album Ordinary Corrupt Human Love (which even won them a Grammy nomination), and are striking while the iron is hot by sharing a new track called 'Black Brick'.

The new song is certainly on the more scabrous end of the Deafheaven scale, and may appease some listeners who found Ordinary Corrupt Human Love's fleshy underbelly a bit off putting. Across seven minutes of vicious guitar-circling, George Clark is in full-throttle growl, riding the torrent for all its worth. The onslaught is much more extreme than any moments we heard on OCHL, which is perhaps why it was left off the album. All the better that we receive it as this one-off gift, as after 7-and-a-half minutes of this we need a breather - before diving headfirst back in.

Deafheaven are on tour in Australia and New Zealand at the moment, but have also hinted that they might be back in the studio sooner than expected, so keep an eye on their socials for news about all that.
