Coming together in 1988 as mere high school students, Deftones (Chino Moreno/Vocals; Stephen Carpenter/Strings;ChiCheng/Bass; Abe Cunningham/Drums; Frank Delgado/Turntables,Keys) have been a thunderous reminder for over adecadethat popular music has not been dried out completely.

Masterfully intertwining heavy guitar riffs, whisper-to-scream vocals, and a pounding rhythm section with textural soundeffects andkeyboards, Deftones' sound is unique and fresh, constantly expanding amongst the stagnant world of their peers.

Credited with the founding of a dynamic soft-to-loud songwriting style and the ushering in of a new wave of music with1995'sAdrenaline, Deftones have pushed forward the sound barrier on all subsequent releases, Around The Fur (1997), WhitePony(2000), Deftones (2003), Saturday Night Wrist (2006) and Diamond Eyes (2010). On all releases, Deftones manage toput themood and atmosphere before thebrutality, an intelligent form of head-banging.

I wonder what they'll do with Eros [2]

Sad news indeed, Chi rests in a better place y'all.

Deftones statement:

There are so many things I can say, and yet at this moment, none of it matters or compares to the loss everyone feels. There will be a hole in our lives where Chi once was. But that will be filled everyday with all of our love and memories we all have in our heart. He will always be here because of love. It's time we all give our love and best, and do our best to love. Especially ourselves, Chi would want that for everyone. All our healing will begin with love. I love you, Chi.

Stephen, for Deftones

When it came out, it had nearly 100% on metacritic.

Personally, I think that is a load of shit. This album has way too many flaws for a perfect rating.

pretty generous rating for a "load of shit". it's got some good tracks and the production was pretty stellar.

You misread me. I said that reception is a load of shit. The album itself is slightly above average.

Imma jump in and say that Lil said she thinks "that is a load of shit", not "THIS is a load of shit".
Meaning the acclamation this album received, not the album itself

EDIT: Yeah what she who actually said it said. Imma go ahead and shove my foot in my mouth

The death of Chi is one of the saddest ews in this year. Album is pretty good but I prefer White Pony and Diamond Eyes, still tempest is one of my favorite deftones tracks

My bad xD will edit. Album's pretty good, just doesn't offer much new and doesn't have many standout moments

It is indeed, Napalm. Now we will never hear Eros and that pivotal component of what made the Deftones sound what it was is forever gone. :s

Definitely the most cruel news (in the US) this month save for the bombing.

i feel like Deftones will never be truly great again. ever since that crash with Chi they haven't quite been the same in terms of quality.

They are still great, the accident of chi was really bad for this band but they still can put quality material. I appreciate more the the 2 latest works more than the self titled and saturday night wrist.
