DEFTONES- Ohms

It’s easy to see this, the ninth Deftones album, as a reflection of the eighth Deftones album. I loved ‘Gore’ but the Californian outfit’s 2016 effort was met with a decidedly lukewarm reception. The consensus seemed to be that while it was atmospheric, it wasn’t exactly dynamic, and while it wasn’t bad, it fell short of the band’s lofty standards. […]

Watch a DEFTONES video

Well someone had to save 2020! Ahead of their next album, ‘Ohms’, out 25.09.20, Deftones have made a video for the title track. Feast your ears and eyes… The track feels positively breezy, huh?

You’ve possibly have heard that it also includes his old friend and former Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, and the fantastically named Chuck Doom, in the ranks. And you’ve almost certainly […]

PALMS- Palms

It feels almost sacrilegious to say, but this, the combined effort of members of Deftones and Isis is… fine. Sure, some three minutes into opener ‘Future Warrior’, as Chino Moreno applies his unique croon to the post-rock rumble of bassist Jeff Caxide, drummer Aaron Harris, and guitarist Cliff Meyer, you get a taste of what might have been. But ultimately, […]
