Deftones is an American rock/alternative metal band from Sacramento, California, formed in 1988, consisting of Chino Moreno(leadvocalsandguitar), Stephen Carpenter (guitar), Chi Cheng (bass), Frank Delgado (keyboards and turntables), and AbeCunningham(drumsandpercussion).Sergio Vega (formerly of Quicksand) took on bass duties in mid-2009 in substitution for Cheng, who wasseriously injured inanautomobile accident in Santa Clara, California on November 4, 2008. Cheng remained in a coma until his death on April13, 2013 duetocardiac arrest.

While they were mostly an alternative metal band in their early years, their sound changed into something more complex andexperimentalin2000, as a result they are often coined today as an alternative rock band.

Critics have often praised them as one of the closest to unique rock bands of recent years for their innovative, atmosphericmusic;asJohnnyLoftus writes, "Rock critics usually reserve a special place for Deftones above or at least away from the rest of the turn-of-the. centurymetalmovement […] Deftones have always seemed more curious, more willing to incorporate traditionally revered sounds likedream pop andDChardcore into their Northern California alt-metal".

Frontman Chino Moreno’s poetic lyrics—described by a Time magazine critic as "fiercely intelligent"—are often evocative,yet aresparseenoughto allow for multiple interpretations. Moreno has cited Morrissey, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, The Cure’s Robert Smith, andDepecheMode’s DavidGahan among his favorite singers, and beyond an occasional similarity in vocal technique,these singers’s weepingsense ofdrama and delicatevulnerability is often evident in Moreno’s vocals. « hide
