Good that they're still flying the same flag they began with, and have a strong following, even if half are hipsters trying too hard, haha.
Respect is due to the experimentors in any genre/ artform, and these guys put real work into it.
Any time you read something about Deafheaven they are inevitably called the most polarizing/divisive band in metal. Partly there's confusion over what to call them. While singer/screamer George Clarke's vocals are firmly in the black metal school, the band has a wider range of influences (post-rock, shoegaze, goth) than most of their peers. Regardless, the band is as punishing and powerful as most metal bands, but the stylistic diversity makes them far more interesting and compelling. It's not an easy listen and many songs push the 10 minute mark, but it's an album that bears repeat listening and has more depth and nuance than much in contemporary metal. Also see: Wolves in the Throne Room, Boris, Liturgy.
I shall call it, "scream through a phone"-metal. Not great; not bad.
