Deftones Part 2

It seems that Deftones have the material for their proper follow up to "Saturday Night Wrist" in the can. That record is called "Eros", and will one day see the light of day.

This record "Diamond Eyes" finds the boys needing to flex new material and breathe life into their band while they deal with the loss of founding member and still banged up bassist Chi Cheng x Quicksand bassist Sergio Vega steps in for bass detail.

There is nothing new to the bands sound on this offering. It's EXACTLY as you might expect from Deftones but that's not a bad thing:
  • sludge riffs
  • cure/nin cooing from Chino
  • half notes all over the place
I saw them on their last tour, and they nailed your mother up against the washing machine while you were out delivering papers.

Top picks off this one.
  • "Diamond Eyes"
  • "Risk"
  • "976-Evil"
  • "Ghosts" (Bonus Track)
