Deftones

Recommended Posts

Picked the new Deftones album on Tuesday, I haven't been able to stop listening to it!

 

Particularly the title track, Diamond Eyes - Written for ex-Deftones bass player Chi Cheng who lapsed into a coma after a near fatal car crash in 2008.

 

It is one of the most powerful metal tracks I have heard in a very long time.

Never got into Deftones and this track doesn't really do anything to change that, seems like the rest of their stuff - angsty melodic whining.

I agree - it's not what I would usually go for, probably going through an easy-listening phase :lol:

Their older stuff is heavier.

The guitarist has always wanted them to go heavier but Chino has always preferred them to be more of an experimental band.

Cino is the best thing about that band IMO... I always thought they were cool but they are pretty sloppy musicians. I'm gonna check this out, sounds like they've headed in a cool direction.

Just listened to the Deftones album start to finish then.

Pretty decent! Not as good as White Pony but still a great album.

Wow!

 

Deftones, I haven't heard in a while.

 

Around The Fur and Adrenaline and some of White Pony were good.

 

I have to say after listening to a lot more Metalcore / Hardcore, I don't listen much to Deftones anymore.

 

The music went down hill with White Pony.

Serious!? White Pony was their most popular album.

But I do prefer the heavier stuff in Adrenaline and Around The Fur.

 

I don't listen to them heaps as I usually listen to heavier stuff but it's good to listen to every now and then for a bit of variety.
