New Deftones Thread

Since Nu-Metal and Modern Rock got merged there's been no band threads in here from the nu-metal forum. So, I thought I would start this thread about one of my favorite bands, the Deftones.

White Pony is the best album, followed by Adrenaline, then Around the Fur, and Saturday Night Wrists.

Amazing when I saw them at Reading this year gone. Made what was otherwise a predominantly crap festival for me.

Gotta love me some Deftones. Nothing like blazing and some Engine No. 9.

You missed out the album deftones. And the writst isnt plural in SNW.

My favourite rock band at the moment (and by rock, I mean guitars, bass, drums and vocalist). All their albums are great. I'd probably rank adrenaline a fair bit below the others though. I mean Around the fur may be my favourite, but SNW is so awesome too (and has so many killer tracks), as is White Pony and Deftones.

Favourite songs at the moment are probably Riviere and Around the fur. Riviere is just hauntingly beautiful and around the fur just has such a riff.

I don't really understand why people rank Adrenaline so low in the Deftones' best albums.
IMO, it's one of the staples of nu-metal.

My favorite album by them is self-titled... I like them all, mostly because they're so different and yet totally recognizable. White Pony sounds different than Around the Fur, Deftones sounds different than White Pony etc etc

Favorite songs are Hexagram, Be Quiet And Drive, Knife Party, Kimdracula, and Good Morning Beautiful.

apparently they're canning Eros, and are going to be working on a 2010 album with the new bassist.

Don't know. I know they are raising money for him, but whether he wakes up is a different story. They said they were postponing (read: cancelling eros) cause they felt it didn't represent them or some jazz, and that it had nothing to do with chi's condition, but I'm calling bullshit.

I recently got Around the Fur and Adrenaline(yesterday). I haven't listened to Around the Fur yet, but Adrenaline is amazing so far. Nosebleed is my favorite song from it.

I don't even know how to describe these guys music anymore. I want to say nu-metal, but the way the album is produced, idk. Distortion is at the max, Chino is screaming and stuff, but it all feels so suppressed. Gives it a very original feel.
