They're well liked among fans of post-rock, due to the very strong post-rock element for obvious reasons, and can serve as a gateway to black metal for fans of that genre.
** They have a pretty strong following in the DIY punk and screamo communities as well, again because of the noticeable screamo influence
in their sound.sound and aesthetic, especially on ''Sunbather''.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The main riff to "Black Brick" sounds ''a lot'' like "Demonium" by Music/{{Immortal}}. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGXm6m5OnAc Just]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnM4BzebTLE listen]] for yourself.

Added DiffLines:

* MorePopularSpinoff: Deafheaven is more successful than George Clarke and Kerry [=McCoy=]'s previous band, ''Rise of Caligula''.


* InternetBackdraft: Just the ''sheer mention'' of them on a black metal forum will result in a person either getting swarmed by trolls or labeled a 'poser' just for listening to them.
* ItsPopularNowItSucks: Since it's commercially successful black metal, it was bound to get this reaction from some corners.

* HypeBacklash: This no doubt applies to some people who dislike them.
** Applies to ''Music/{{Sunbather}}'' as well; as it's hyped as being the band's best album and was the best reviewed album in 2013 of ''any genre'', many people were disappointed upon listening to it.

* BaseBreaker: For the BlackMetal fan base as a whole. Outside of the black metal fanbase, ''the vocals'' are generally the biggest base breaker (it is not uncommon to hear non-metal fans say they'd prefer Deafheaven without the vocals).


* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Some people will find it to be this, anyway. If you enjoy Deafheaven, you'll probably enjoy almost everything they've released at the bare minimum. If you don't, well...

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureSong: "Dream House", "Brought to the Water" or "Honeycomb"


** It seemed to be a huge inverse for fans and non-fans: Non-fans consider ''New Bermuda'' to be a fantastic new release and actually enjoy the band...but old fans see the album as [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks just being]] ''Music/{{Sunbather}}'' [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks again]].

** Surprisingly now everyone seems to agree ''Ordinary Corrupt Human Love'' is this for both fans and black metal heads.


* BaseBreaker: For the BlackMetal fan base as a whole. Outside of the black metal fanbase, ''the vocals'' are generally the biggest base breaker (it is not uncommon to hear non-metal fans say they'd prefer Deafheaven without the vocals). Which isn't much of a surprise, since they're part of the LoveItOrHateIt nature of black metal itself.

* SweetDreamsFuel: "Irresistable" and the SubduedSection of "The Pecan Tree." Actually, if a person isn't bothered by the {{Metal Scream}}s, a rather large portion of their music could qualify as this.

* MemeticMutation: Editing the album cover for ''Music/Sunbather'' to say nonsensical things instead of the album title.
* {{Narm}}: A lot of their lyrics can be perceived as being overly verbose and melodramatic. Special mention goes to "Brought to the Water", which closes with the lines "My world closes its eyes to sex and laughter."
