2010-02-16 by eternium | 105 Comments

Deftones will release Diamond Eyes on May 18.

The album was recorded with ex-Quicksand bassist Sergio Vega in place of Chi Cheng, who is still recovering from injuries sustained in a 2008 car accident that left him comatose for several months.

The album's first single, 'Rocket Skates,' will be made available for free download on February 23.

Diamond Eyes?
Well it's always been a bit weird, but who cares WE ACTUALLY HAVE A FIRM RELEASE DATE!

This pale mexican is cumming on the 18th, that's to be sure.

Yes, the title isn't the best. Neither is Rocket Skates. But the song itself is the shit.
I think this is very promising. Can't wait for tour news.

So they've written two albums in the last year?

What happened to Eros?

They decided not to release Eros and start from scratch because Chino said touring with that album would remind him too much of Chi and that not until he's better would they even think of releasing it. I'm so stoked for this.

Kind of surprised they didn't get Terry Date into the studio. He has worked out extremely well for this band.

I don't think Vega produced this did he? I thought he was just playing bass...

Either way I'm ridiculously pumped for this (albeit saddened by the once-again-delayed release date). Diamond Eyes is a little cheesy, but I have a feeling once I hear the album it will all make sense and begin to grow on me in typical Deftones fashion.

Yeah, they recorded with Sergio, as opposed to Chi. Album's being produced by Nick Raskulinecz. I'm not fussed that Terry Date's not involved, he wasn't involved with SNW either

Terry was involved with Eros though, so I wonder what happened to him.
Oh well, the sample for Rocket Skates has damn good production nonetheless.

I love when Terry Date produces Deftones albums.. SNW, while amazing, is not in my top 3 records by the 'tones (White Pony, self-titled, Adrenaline in that order). Either way, Diamond Eyes should be pretty epic.

It won't be. It was made for Eros and everything that was to be on Eros was put on the side after Chi got hurt.

Inveigh, your order is fucked up. Sure, White Pony first but then their two worst albums (a 3.5 and 2.5 respectively)? Tut tut.

Eros will still get released at some point (it better anyway. I mean, they're never going to get Chi back. He's been in a coma for well over a year now, it sucks to admit it but even if he does wake up, he'll likely have severe brain damage).

But yeah, I'm now more pumped for this album that Soundwave on sunday.

Ah, "Captain" North.. it is YOU who has the fucked up order :-)

I been listening to Deftones since you were in diapers kiddo. Oh, and sorry bloc, we've conversed over our difference in Deftones opinions, so I understand your disappointment.

White Pony - 5
Saturday Night Wrist - 4.75 (if it wasnt for that darn pink cellphone song)
Around The Fur - 4.5
B-Sides - 4
Deftones - 3.5
Adrenaline - 2.5

And yeah, you listening to them longer means nothing just that you have an attachment to the stuff you got into first. So I understand your love of adrenaline but self-titled? I don't get that at all. There's no tension, no real emotional impact from it. (For me anyway).

God damn that teaser sounds uber beefy. Is it just me, or is the whole layout and the lettering etc reminding anyone else of White Pony?

The youtube video on their Myspace you mean? It kinda reminds me of Fur.

Inveigh

Captain North: yeah, I understand what you mean in releation to self-titled sorta, but that one's less sentimental and more just awesome. It took awhile to grow on me (songs like Hexagram, GMB, WGTB etc. didn't hit me on the first few listens). That albums all about the eerie atmosphere mixed with crushing heaviness for me (see Battle Axe and Deathblow -- two of the best songs Deftones have ever written). I dunno, agree to disagree? A whale's vagina?

But seriously, you're more of a SNW guy and I'm more of a s/t guy, I think that's a distinction that's fairly common among Deftones fans.

that snippet on their myspace is wayyyy too short. it did sound awesome though.

Deviant: I see what you mean about the lettering and layout being similar to White Pony. You're talking about the bonus edition of the cd that was released briefly way back in 2000 that was all black and red right? and their website back then was all black and red and similar lettering? I think it said something like Deftones Worldwide at the top of the page?

Or maybe fix it so news only gets on the "most viewed" chart if it is the most viewed within a certain timeframe, not in general? Feels like these article necros keep getting on the list because of previous views, not current popularity due to bumping.

This was a good album guys it's nice to reflect on life before Diamond Eyes right? Things looked just a bit dimmer before then. Being the original one who bumped this since it's last comment in 2010 I can testify it was already featured in the most viewed so I also was tricked by this hanging out in a section it shouldn't be in.

That said, go listen to this album! and enjoy! or enjoy other music and be happy!
