Lovers of euphoric black metal everywhere rejoiced when it was recently announced that Californian heroes Deafheaven would be releasing their fourth album Ordinary Corrupt Human Love this summer. Along with the announcement came lead single 'Honeycomb', an 11-minute track that showed the band shifting through several of their most beloved modes. They have now released another preview of the album in 'Canary Yellow', a song that is bigger, longer and brasher than its predecessor.

Stretching beyond 12-minutes, the only way to really discuss 'Canary Yellow' is in movements. Once again they start us off smoothly with some muscular guitar riffs that lift us capably to a height from which they send us plummeting through the next 10 minutes. The middle section of the song is Deafheaven at their most vicious, drummer Daniel Tracy moving faster than seemingly possible to ensure there is a constant quaking, as the rest of the band swing like steam rollers on pendulums, flying back and forth across the song with absolute abandon - but never losing the thread. A short breakdown gives way to sidewinding guitars, and even a solo that could easily have come from the heyday of metal, were it not for the modern production that makes it comes steaming out of the track. 'Canary Yellow' is capped off by gang vocals - the first genuine singalong moment in the band's catalogue - which guide the song home smoothly, like a Antonov An-225 coming in to land, all its weight gliding pristinely onto the tarmac.

Check out 'Canary Yellow' below.
