Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has revealed that he is not a fan of dubstep.

Moreno explained that though he loved lots of types of electronic music, dubstep was not one of them.

Speaking to KROQ, Moreno said: "I love some electronic music. I'm not a big fan of dubstep but there is so much good electronic music out there."

He added: "I grew up in the eighties, that's probably why I like some of the earlier electronic from Kraftwerk to all throughout new wave and things like that. A band like Depeche Mode would go out and record them hitting a trash can with a steel rod or something and recording it. And that would be one of their sounds of the drums. I love the creativeness of that kind of really raw sampling."

The Sacremento metal band's seventh full-length album 'Koi No Yokan' will be released on November 12.

The record is the follow-up to 2010's 'Diamond Eyes' was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush). It contains a total of 11 tracks, with a single 'Tempest' released on October 9.

Speaking about the record previously, Moreno said that the record was "very dynamic" and would contain elements of all the band's previous records.

He said: "It's not a super fast or slow record. It's very dynamic. Some of my favourite things about Deftones are the dynamics. Yes, we're a heavy band, but we're not just in-your-face aggro the whole time, punching you in the face. There's a lot of aggression in some of the music, but there's also this very soothing element where there's a lot of soundscapes rather than attack, attack, attack the whole time."

The band have confirmed a full US tour for this winter in support of their new album, but have yet to schedule any UK dates. They last played the UK in 2011 at the Reading and Leeds Festivals.
