Speaking to AOL's Noisecreep, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno stated about the songwriting process for "Koi No Yokan", "We were coming out of a tough time, obviously, and our goal was to kind of rebuild what we created over all the years. I felt like we had to prove ourselves. We'd taken so much time between records, had some inner turmoil, and our records were starting to get pieced together versus really being created together, so for us it was a chance to get back to basics. We didn't have an idea of what sort of style we wanted. We just came in fired up and motivated to do something great. It was all very positive. We had more songs than ever, tons of ideas."

    How many other bands from Deftones era can say they honestly progressed with each album, let alone as musicians? I think the fact that they stand tall, still hitting their creative peak as musicians is a testament to their songwriting. They've succeeded where so many other 'nu metal' bands failed. They're not heavy for the sake of being heavy, they're not trying to pass themselves off as legit metal, and they never had a lame, tough guy aesthetic.
    This band never ceases to amaze me. Might call in "sick" to work next Tuesday and listen to this album all day.
    I'd never listened to Deftones before. I listened to Tempest and my mind was blown, I think it's the best song of 2012.
    Buy Diamond Eyes, that's where I started! Your brain is about to be scrambled eggs!
    Leathers is one of the best songs I've heard in years, really looking forward to this release.
    It's funny how this album sounds so much more similar to Diamond Eyes . On every album before this one, they seemed to almost completely reinvent themselves while still being "Deftones". That said, they definitely added some new stuff in again. From the clips, this album might be their catchiest sounding album. Can't wait either way.
