The 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. Or, 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.
