San Francisco art metal band Deafheaven scored the #16 spot on Amazon’s ‘Best Albums of 2013 (CD)’ list with the elegant ‘Sunbather,’ sitting right ahead of the indie rock of Foals and popster Miley Cyrus.


Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, also named Deafheaven ‘Best Hard Rock & Metal’ artist of the year – and – ‘Best Hard Rock & Metal’ album of the year with Sunbather.


Deafheaven, a relatively recent phenomenon at 3 years old, have a ‘light in the dark’ type spirit combined with post-metal soundscapes. Deathwish, the band’s record label, says “Sunbather deals with the profound sadness found in the quest for one’s personal perfection. Serving as an artistic lucid dream of warmth despite the stinging pain of life’s cruel idealism.” Check it out here.
