Deftones – ‘Koi No Yokan’

When Robert Smith died, the remaining members of The Cure did the only thing they could – detuned their instruments, employed a screaming banshee as their frontman and called themselves Deftones. OK, that never happened. But listening to the...

Album review: Deftones - 'Diamond Eyes' (Warner Bros)

Album review: Deftones - 'Diamond Eyes' (Warner...

It’s a decade since ‘White Pony’ finally pushed Deftones towards wider critical acceptance, but as ‘Diamond Eyes’ shows, they’ve always sounded timeless. And despite having a rich story behind it – they recorded an album (...

Deftones

Look, we know that, as card-carrying music journalists, we’re supposed to play nice about Deftones. Especially as this single features fellow credibility-grubbing metallers System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian on vocals. But we just can’t. This...

Deftones : Nottingham Rock City

Deftones : Nottingham Rock City

Scientifically, of course, Deftones are pivotal to the completion of rock’s evolutionary cycle. Being in possession of robotic bass-drenched riffs with enough repetitive clout to frazzle intestines, they are mapping out rock's future....

Deftones : Deftones

One thing people never mention is how Deftones make great music to have orgies to. Indeed, earlier this year, the last album 'White Pony' provided the soundtrack to one of the most enjoyable and exciting evenings of this writer's life....

Los Angeles UC Irvine Bren Center

Ozzfest veterans Incubus and Deftones step up to nab the neo-hardcore crown in the first of two Southern California shows together. Funny that, just after Zack de la Rocha drops the bomb that he's leaving Rage Against The Machine ....

Change (In The House Of Flies)

Deftones Change (In The House Of Flies) (Maverick) Before we start, let's get one thing straight: heavy metal is the bestest, most brilliantest genre in all the world, bar none. It's just a senseless waste that so many of its...

San Francisco Warfield Theatre

It used to be simple. Punk was ace and metal was shite. And never mind the revisionist bollocks about AC/DC - they were shite as well. Radical and relevant, or Neanderthal throwbacks, the choice was all too clear. Not any longer. The Deftones...
