You ever notice with a lot of Deftones songs, the chorus doesn't live up to the verses or vice versa?

In this case, I think the verses are much better than the chorus.

Scream game weak because of the weight loss. Diaphragm is much smaller now.

Also I once again don't see the "sounds like everything else they've ever done" critique. Maybe I just have a bit more narrower view of what Deftones sounds like... but they haven't made anything that sounds quite like this either imo.

Sounds like they picked up right where they left off with Date on the S/T here (suffocating atmosphere, slow punishing riffs, etc.)... but with some new tricks they've learned since. Song is a straight hellscape... like if Battle-Axe was on KNY. They haven't made anything quite this heavy since Date.

"his screams are kinda weak here and are being propped up by effects just like on Gore."

The only effects on his screaming come at around 1:45 and it's not to prop up his screams but it's this rather underwater-like effect that they have used multiple times before on songs such as MX for example.

Nah there's def the same sorta reverb/light distortion filter on them that was on Gore. It's a bit dialed back this time around but it is most definitely there.

The underwater thing is def a cool call back to ATF though

Very true the riffs on that album were killer. I don't personally dislike any album from this band as a whole. Didn't really care for Gore all that much.

Only album I think that lacks would be Gore, because it's the only one I have to force myself to go back to, even if I like a few songs on it. DE is that way for me sometimes, but not always. Sextape, Rocket Skates, title track, and Risk redeem it for me. SNW has like a few tracks that don't need to be there, but Combat to Riviere alone makes it a favorite. KNY is prolly my fave release of theirs, tho. Not even a filler track on that record imo. Leathers, Tempest, Poltergeist, Entombed, Rosemary, Swerve City, Gauze, and What Happened to You? are all time favorites for me.

That being said, I'm prepared to have a new favorite Deftones record in a weeks time since Genesis might be tied with Be Quiet and Drive or Hexagram for my favorite track of theirs now.

The end scream on Royal > every last Cartman scream on SNW...y'all the ones on that rock.

Listening to Ratsx3 right now and don't get me wrong, it's still a fun song (Abe goes HAM at the end), but his scream has been better elsewhere. And I can't speak for every singer, but in Chino's case, the two albums with the most winded sounding screams, SNW and Gore, just so happen to be when he was on the heavy side.

His screams on SNW have always had a different "energy" behind them to me. Feels like more anger and frustration behind them. That's why SNW is one of my top 3 Deftones albums.

So the end scream on Royal isn't good to you? Okay, basehead!

And don't get it twisted that I'm slagging off SNW as an album, obviously there are other elements that make it an excellent Deftones album. It's just not one of the albums that showcases his best screams.

love that the conclusion is that drugs and being a fat fuck weakened his screaming and not the fact that the way he used to scream was the definition of unhealthy vocal technique

Sure, to be more fair to him, that is a big part of it, and particularly his vocal damage in 2001. Yet his screams still somehow sound much better on S/T than SNW.

Not making fun of him, simply said he was a bit heavier at points and how it might have affected certain album performances. It's the other people in here calling him a fat fuck.

Eh... Not really hyped for the album anymore.

Didn't find Ohms interesting or engaging at all but that was ok because the closing song on Deftones albums are never the best. I like Genesis a bit more, the electronics are cool but the song in general is super average.

Why are people saying this is a return to the vibe of the Terry Date years just because he is producing it? Diamond Eyes and Koi No Yokan was a return to the sound of those years, like a lot of material off of both records could have easily fit inbetween Fur and Pony and they fucking nailed it on those two records.

Gore was an experiment I didn't dig so much but it had an atmosphere, I feel similar towards it as I do s/t.
I'll check out the new album definitely, but won't be holding out for something great.

As someone that loves pretty much all of their records, I couldn’t disagree more. The guitar work alone is a clear progression from the s/t and SNW. Plus, Deftones never would’ve made a song like Rosemary in the 90’s.

the deftones forum and subreddit have some advanced scans of a couple of magazine reviews that haven't been made public to the interwebz

Valkoor952
September 20th 2020
4080 Comments


here's the metal hammer review for you:

"It's rare in a career spanning more than a quarter of a century that a band could make as few missteps as Deftones have. The Sacramento alt-metallers have rarely let their lofty standards slip below essential, but, even though many were hugely onboard with the more ethereal, experimental post-rock vibes of 2016's Gore, there were some murmurings of discontent from fans that the album sacrificed too much in the way of heaviness. If you were one of those people then Ohms will definitely go some way to placating you and your tastes, as long as you don't expect Deftones to have thrown the baby out with the bathwater.

Opener Genesis is expertly pitched between the slow-burning mystique of the previous album, yet it's still dominated by a gargantuan Stephen Carpenter metal riff. It's then followed by two songs that sting like a butterfly and float like a bee; Ceremony is woozy one minute and white hot the next, while Urantia chugs into view as if it is going to be a full-blown metallic stomper before pulling back to a gentle strut. This dance continues for the rest of the song, and showcases everything that make Deftones so special. Their use of dynamics, the ability to be so heart-stopping beautiful yet outwardly aggressive, is the reason why so many people hold this band in such esteem. That push and pull is second nature to them at this point, and while it wouldn't be correct to say that Ohms points the band in any new directions or draws from any new influences, Deftones are such masters at taming these contradictory, capacious sounds that the results are continually glorious.

1/2

Valkoor952
September 20th 2020

...Saying that, the second half of the record is definitely where the old-school fans of traditional heaviness will have the most joy. Pompeji is a tricksy number, starting as slow and quiet as the album gets before launching into a destructive groove and then ending on as close to Vangelis-inspired synthwave scene as Deftones have ever been, before This Link Is Dead comes powering into view. It's probably the most out-and-out brutal Deftones have sounded since When Girls Telephone Boys on their 2003 self-titled album. It's such a delight to hear the band rage with such uncompromising intensity again, so good in fact that it's the highlight of the record. They don't let up for the following Radiant City, and even though Headless is a slow and more spacious number it still contains some crushing guitar parts. The title track closes the record, once more an amalgam of lush melodies and post-metal crush, but with an added stoner riff that wouldn't be out of place on a Red Fang album.

Ohms is an album for every type of Deftones fan. Whether you're longing for the days of Around The Fur or if you appreciated the more measured material on Gore there will be something that you'll love. In taking an extensive tour of their past, Deftones continue to be essential today."

2/2

I thought everything else was good enough to at least average out the vocal mixing/some of the performance, so I wouldn't go as far as to say its flaws ruin the track entirely. Therefore, I overall thought the song was mediocre-to-okay rating-wise.
