This is a ridiculous package. A few weeks ago, the Deftones announced another run across North America, but did not announce any openers. Today, it's been confirmed that the mighty djentlemen in Periphery will be filling that slot. While it may seem odd at first, the combo totally fits in this humble blogger's opinion. I'm curious to see the reaction Periphery will get from the Deftones faithful. One thing is for sure, they will be playing to hundreds (if not thousands) of new sets of ears every night, exposing their brand of metal, and for that we congratulate them. Here is the routing: (more…)
…and here is tour announcement #3. Deftones are heading back out on the road next March. The band announced new routing today. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 21st. No openers have been announced yet, but I've heard some rumors, and they are pretty big rumors, of an interesting opener for the band, that will surely turn some heads. For now, we have dates: (more…)
2012 will not see end of the world, or extreme music for that matter. However, if this was the end of Metal and Hardcore as we know it, the year 2012 would make quite a grand finale. So many great records came out this year that I decided to stretch this article to a more obnoxious comprehensive list of 25. If it weren’t for the amazing power of Spotify, I don’t know how I would have kept up. As with my list last year, this list is unordered, as agonizing over competing slots for #9 and #10 would miss the point of the exercise. The point being: out of all the music I heard this year, the records listed below represent what I enjoyed the most. I hope some readers get some benefit from seeing this list and check out some records they may have missed, or that others will have some to name that I may have overlooked myself.
It's been a few months since we've checked in on Deftones bassist Chi Cheng. Cheng was involved in a horrific car accident left him paralyzed and in a coma for almost four years. Recently, he's shown signs of improvement, as his family has checked him out of the hospital and he is under their care at their home.
Chi's family checked in with a new update on his progress. (more…)
While it doesn't look like we're getting Ozzfest in the States anytime soon, Ozzfest Japan 2013 is looking stacked. Previously, we reported that the two night festival happening May 11th and 12th will feature Slipknot and Black Sabbath headlining each night, respectively.
Over the weekend the fully rounded lineup was announced and WOW! (more…)
Deftones' new album Koi No Yokan doesn't come out until Tuesday here in the states, but being on the internets does have it's perks. The band's full album is now streaming in full courtesy of Rolling Stone.
And with no shocker to me, it sounds absolutely killer. The ambient landscapes the band creates before crashing into the typical Deftones heavy affair, sound dense, and the overall sound of the album is great. I'm about halfway through and loving it. Listen in: (more…)
Now that Deftones have hit the road in support of Koi No Yokan, which comes out November 13, they are of course doing a ton of interviews. In these interviews, frontman Chino Moreno gets asked all the usual questions about his many side projects. One other thing everyone has been asking is if Chino will be getting into dubstep more after he collaborated with Bassnectar on the song Hexes for the Resident Evil: Retribution soundtrack. (Listen here.) Thankfully, he's not. When Consequence of Sound asked Chino if he was planning on breaking onto the over-played EDM sub-genre, he said: (more…)
Believe it or not, playing your own songs gets boring. Sometimes you want to just play something random to get a crowd reaction. Prog rockers Muse have riffed out an occasional Deftones song before, covering pieces of Bored and My Own Summer [Shove It]. This time, Muse followed up their song New Born with a short cover of Deftones' Headup. You can check out the fan-filmed video above. I'd like to see Muse cover an entire song, but that probably won't happen. Take a look: (more…)
We've been following the tragic Chi Cheng story for a while now. The Deftones bassist was left in a comatose state after a tragic accident in 2008. Today, there is an uplifting addition to the story. During the Sacramento stop of their current tour promoting their upcoming album, Koi No Yokan, out November 13th (hear a new song), the band invited Chi's son, Gabriel onstage for a little jam. Gabriel crushed it on bass for the track "Root" and get a tremendous amount of support from the crowd in attendance. He did a killer job. Of course, there is video: (more…)
