GRAMMY AWARD winning Deftones are an American alternative metal
band formed in Sacramento, California in 1988.
It was formed by Chino Moreno (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Stephen Carpenter
(lead guitar), Abe Cunningham (drums), and Dominic Garcia (bass). During their
first five years, the band's lineup changed several times, but stabilized in
1993 when Cunningham rejoined after his departure in 1990; by this time, Chi
Cheng was bassist. The lineup remained stable for fifteen years, with the
exception of keyboardist and turntablist Frank Delgado being added in 1999. The
band is known as one of the most experimental groups to have come from the
alternative metal scene.

They have sold more than 10 million albums worldwide.
Although initially rooted in metal, Deftones have always claimed diverse
influences from groups of various genres, with their musical style diversifying
over their career. Their sound has been described as alternative metal, art
rock/art metal, experimental rock, nu metal, post-punk, post-hardcore,
alternative rock, dream pop, drone rock, post-metal, shoegaze, post-rock, stoner
rock, hard rock, trip hop, glitch, math metal, psychedelia, and funk metal.
Deftones are not so much a band as they are a hyper-dynamic musical experience. Imagine the world spinning off its axis, and you'll have a good idea of what these guys sound like.
As lead singer Chino Moreno says, "It's sweet, ruthless."

With their wicked rhythms, sinister riffs, speaking-in-tongues vocals and rabid lyrics, the Sacramento, California, foursome build provocatively on their sets.
The ease with which the Deftones annihilate boundaries among their audiences is no doubt enhanced by the multi-ethnic makeup of the band." As Chino explained, "We're two Mexicans, a Chinese and a white boy. Metal and punk don't have to be white anymore than rap has to be black."
Tour plans for Deftones? They plan to live on the road, building their unique bond with their fans, whom they reward with shows that are transcendent and physically draining.
One sold-out performance, at the Whisky in Los Angeles, had Sandy Masuo of the Los Angeles Times observing: "Stephen Carpenter's guitar gouged into the groove one minute, then peeled out of it the next, boosting the undulating rhythms of songs such as 'Lifter' with relentless, repeating riffs. Singer Chino Moreno hurled himself around the stage as he spewed his abstract lyrics through a startling assortment of vocal textures - from the primal keening of 'Root' to the tuneful crooning of 'One Weak,' some rapping, hair-raising howling and melodic mumbling."
It's that kind of passion and total commitment to their craft that makes Deftones stand apart. They deliver work that will intrigue your mind, energize your body and touch your soul.
