Title: Album Nine
Post by: LG95 on Feb 24, 2018, 12:12 AM
Ok, this may go nowhere but over the past couple of weeks, I've started to think a lot about the next record.

I think in some ways, this may be the strangest point in their whole career. Critically and commercially, they're in a good moment. They've reached a point where everyone respects the hell out of them. Bands love them. Rock press loves them. Even the indie critics have to give them some credit. They may not be as big as they were on White Pony but Diamond Eyes and Koi No Yokan were very significant in refreshing the support that had perhaps dwindled during the 'dark days'. Over here in the the UK for example, they're back playing 10,000+ capacity venues in London (Wembley Arena in 2016, Alexandra Palace in 2017) after they dropped down during SNW. Gore was very much a critical and commercial success and I think they're in pretty good form live right now.

At the same time, Gore was a major dividing point among fans. Some (slightly insane people) hate it. Some had a pretty lukewarm reaction to it. Nowhere near as many people are people are singing its praises in the triumphant manner they were with the previous two records. Perhaps more importantly, Stef's admission about his initial reluctance to Gore is bound to form part of the coverage for the next release. If his work is clearly present, that will get spun in a number of ways. If it isn't, then the same. Except possibly bigger.

As such, I think the build up to the next album will be the most interesting it's been in quite a while. The usual questions about musical direction aside, there will be a more definitive focus on Stef's contribution. Production, at least for fans, may form a bigger part of it too, after the problems with Matt Hyde on Gore.

So:

What would you like to see from the next album?

What do you think we'll get from the next album?

Who would you like to produce it?

What rough release date are you expecting?

I realise there may only be about three people still reading this forum but I'll post it anyway. Also if you're a "KOI NO YOKAN IS THR BEST DEAFTONES ALBUM EVA, GORE SUX" type, there is a special place on the internet for you called the Deftones subreddit. Go post there instead.

I would like to see Steph input more, since Diamond Eyes I felt this contributions have decreased, though on Gore I feel the stuff he wrote was powerful.

In terms of what to expect, it will just be another organic snapshot of the era, typical Deftones  8)

There's an Interview when Chino said: I want Stephens "forefront" to the next album http://www.theprp.com/2017/10/02/news/chino-moreno-wants-stephen-carpenters-riffs-forefront-next-deftones-album/ (http://www.theprp.com/2017/10/02/news/chino-moreno-wants-stephen-carpenters-riffs-forefront-next-deftones-album/)
There is anther one when Stephen talks about ATF and the next album last question scroll down https://www.google.hu/amp/s/www.guitarworld.com/.amp/artists/stephen-carpenter-looks-back-deftones-breakthrough-album-around-fur (https://www.google.hu/amp/s/www.guitarworld.com/.amp/artists/stephen-carpenter-looks-back-deftones-breakthrough-album-around-fur)
So I'm think their next album is going to be heavy

One of the interviews someone posted earlier in this thread with Stef said that he's been working on some ideas, and that was last year, so it sounds like already it's an improvement from Gore from a Stef-motivation standpoint, which is great. Personally I do hope what Chino said about wanting to put Stef at the forefront becomes a reality, because I know people have been worried that Stef's ideas aren't being welcomed or whatever, so it'd be good to see what an album like that sounds like.

Deftones haven't disappointed me so far, so I don't particularly want or expect anything from them than for them to continue what they've been doing that allows them to make awesome music. Gore is one of my favourite albums, along with White Pony and the self-titled album, and I can't really understand the hate some people have for it. Criticisms or complaints, sure, but I can't see why it's such an utter failure to some people. But ah well.

We haven't had any updates about the progress of the album, so I'm going to play it safe and say we won't see the album released until 2019, but hopefully I'm wrong. And hopefully we'll get some new music this year.

Post by: defsteve on Feb 25, 2018, 05:41 PM
Deftones have only ever released albums in 5 months of the year.

2 x April
2 x May
1 x June release
5 x October
1 x November

Adrenaline - Released: October 1, 1995
Around the Fur - Released: October 24, 1997
White Pony - Released: June 20, 2000
Deftones - Released: May 20, 2003
B-Sides & Rarities - Released: October 4, 2005
Saturday Night Wrist - Released: October 31, 2006
Diamond Eyes - Released: May 4, 2010
Covers - Released: April 16, 2011
The Vinyl Collection 1995Ė2011 Released: October 25, 2011
Koi No Yokan - Released: November 13, 2012
Gore - Released: April 8, 2016

I'm guessing (unless they are not hyping it at all this time) that we won't see a release in April, May or June so that would only leave October and November this year if they keep to the same release pattern.

My gut feeling is a new song in May/June, another in August/September, followed by US headline dates & festivals between August - October (especially Cal Jam '18 and Aftershock festival....both October).

Finish the year with European tour in November....either a co-headline with Alice In Chains in smaller arenas (10,000) or subbing System of a Down in larger arenas (15,000+).

That then leaves a break for Christmas/new year before starting up again in February 2019. US/Canadian/South American dates early in the year, Texas/US headline & festival dates in May (Worlds Loudest Month festivals) followed by European summer festivals in June/July/August (depending on what ones they do).

OR I'm completely wrong, the 2 European festival dates in June are the final Gore album cycle shows and we don't hear anything until 2019  ;D

I imagine album cycle touring plans are planned 12-18 months in advance so they will know now what they are doing. 

Disclaimer. The above is purely guesswork  :P

Broadly agree, although to be honest, I think that's largely down to Stef. It certainly seemed to be the case with Gore that rather than his ideas being shut down, he just wasn't contributing early on in the process. I don't think he'll make that mistake this time.

Could u imagine the hype if they brought Terry back for this one??Fuck that would be fun .

I honestly think they will. Both Chino and Stef have praised his past work with them multiple times in the last year. And Terry seems like he'd work with them any time - indeed, he's supposedly a little disappointed that he didn't make all their records. Given the problems with Gore's production, I think there's a pretty good chance they'll want to go back to him.

Reading all of this, I get a weird feeling about the upcoming show. They premiered new material out of the blue a couple of times, mostly after a long period of inactivity.

The article with Chino saying he wants Stef's sound back at the forefront of the music dates a few months, and he said something like he wanted to hang out at Stef's on weekends and jam.

It's a safe bet to say they have recorded something together and they're ready to tease. If not this show, maybe in Europe. They only ever premiered new work in the U.S though.

I have high hope to see Terry back. This would make sense with Chino kind of saying he wants a more classic Stef for the new album.

For the love of all that is holy and good, please let Terry produce this next album, haha.
Title: Re: Album Nine
Post by: defTHE1s on Feb 27, 2018, 06:56 PM
1) I'm not that big fan of a collab, even when I love Passenger, Phantom Bride is Ok, but on the other side, think Mein was a little disappointing, since I was expecting a better work or input from Serj. But, I would like to hear, if it's the chance given, a good collaboration vocal wise, but this time, a female collab.
Appart from that, I just expect to Deftones to sound like them, I know Eros is 50-50 expected to hear but I would leave what I want to hear from Eros, on Eros and from new album, on it.

2) If it's well produced, surely a new album that would be on top of Gore, at least.
And since Stef's input on the new Will Haven's song was great, I would really expect to take it to the next level using his 7's or 8's on Deftones.

3) Terry of course, that would be what we all expect, and since the comments saying that Chino wants to be Stef at the front of writing, I think no one ever has understood better what Deftones want, than Terry.

4) I would take it safe too, and not expect anything new 'till late 2019-early 2020. I know it seems a lot of time, but so did Gore next to KNW, almost 3 1/2 years one from the other.
But if they surprise us before that, I would love it.

If I had to take a guess, just a shot in the dark, I'd say that the album will probably come out in about... 2 more hours.

Oh yeah, it seems like Stef just wasn't really inspired or in the right mindset to come up with his own ideas, but hopefully that won't be the case this time. He said he's been working on some ideas so sounds like there's already a difference.

Reading all of this, I get a weird feeling about the upcoming show. They premiered new material out of the blue a couple of times, mostly after a long period of inactivity.

I don't know about this. With Gore they said they didn't want people's first time hearing a song to be live, especially with everyone being able to record it and share it, etc. But they did play Doomed User live before it was released, so who knows? Hopefully they'll give us something new, but I think it's probably a bit too early.

Post by: illthrowROCKS@U on Feb 28, 2018, 08:55 PM
I dunno, I was pretty happy with both Gore and KNY. Both see fairly regular rotation from me today. DE was okay, too. Sure, these albums are not as good as their earlier work, but honestly that's to be expected from most bands that have been at it this long, much less bands with such fantastic earlier work.

Hahaha terry date lol thinking that it will ultimately lead us to a place of happiness, You'll always be disappointed, anyway it feels like every release could be that next classic album but never quite gets there ...

If Terry Date had produced Gore, it would probably be their best album since S/T, IMO. The only thing that really holds the album back, IMO, is weak production. Well, that, and Chino maybe should've have recorded his vocals on a day when his screams were a little more ferocious.

I agree. From a song standpoint, Gore is at least the strongest album of the Sergio era (for me). The production is what keeps it down.

Interesting post on here from a guy who went to Botanica Festival on Saturday.

----03-03-18   Botanica Music Festival @ Six Flags, San Antonio TX   

Deftones put on a good show as always!  High energy.  Everyone sounded on point.  Chino said they haven't seen each other for like 4 months, and they were happy to see everyone.  According to their twitter, they got together a day early before the festival opened and rehearsed.  Not much other talk between songs.  Good set list!  Might be the only time I've ever heard them play Lifter live, so it was a nice surprise.  Minerva is always good!

Presuming it's true that they haven't seen each other for four months, it's probably safe to say that they haven't properly started writing yet. Which I think also means that it's very likely that they'll be doing so in/for the next two and a half months. With the South American tour and summer festivals, I don't know when they'll finish up - maybe the back end of the summer/early Autumn.

Which would set them up for a possible late 2018 release or more likely early 2019.

New album talk? Always goes the same:


Chino interviews:

"Its really unorthodox, reminds me a lot of White Pony"
"Its super heavy, probably our heaviest record yet"

Steph:

"This latest album is all Chino"
"We nearly broke up"
"Im playing on a ten string now for the one song i get to chug"

Every fan:

"Can't wait, hope it sounds like ATF!!1one"
"TERRI DATEEE PLS LOL"
"Chino looks so much slimmer and healthy, remember the hole in the earth video when he had 12 chins?"

And then about two weeks before it drops ill be here to pop in and drop a fake album leak that actually directs to lemonparty.org

See you guys then!

-sl goes bat shit crazy and begs for the record or any info about the songs

-vesanic feels important

-vesanic gives sl the silent treatment

-when things are calming down vesanic sends a song or two to a few selected

-sl goes bat shit crazy again, demanding the songs too

-vesanic feels important again

-vesanic says he can't post the record because he promised his source in the know he wouldn't

I was going to mention this as well. ESP just released Stef signature 20th anniversary green 6 string. Would be great if they at least did a few songs on the 6.

Also, Gore is good. But I will not listen anymore since it hurts my ears.

And Poltergeist and Prince bring the brutalz.

Honestly, I really wouldn't mind if Chino completely abandoned yelling/"screaming" on the new album. If anything, just to preserve whatever he has left of his voice. For the next album, imagine the darkest, most nostalgic sounding stuff they've made. Absolutely evil and vivid lyrics. Crushing AND emotional guitar with deceivingly sweet vocals about things most too strange for most bands. That's what I want.

I can get with this. Maybe a couple well-placed screams here and there, but mostly cleans. Gore's screams were pretty lack luster... I'd rather him sing than scream like that. Of course, I'd rather rather screams a la Hexagram (or even Royal), but I feel that those days are behind us now.

I'm going to disagree. Slow the fuck down and do it right! Gore had some solid ass songs that were ruined with fucked up production. I'd rather them delay the album a full year to get it right than just say "fuck it, it's done" again.

Imo his best stuff may have been on a 7 string. There was that perfect balance between melody and heaviness. Hexagram main riff will probably be my favorite, itís fucking beautiful.

I could have sworn I saw yesterday that someone who sounded an awful lot like Red Pill/The Prodigy responded to this with his usual dumb shit. Did that get deleted?

And to remain on topic, I wholeheartedly agree with this statement. The Hexagram riff is probably the best in all of Deftones' discography.

I knew it was him from his first posts in rap sections. I had decided to give him a pass hoping he understood his shit makes no sense in this forum. Should have known better. He's had several dozens of accounts so far.

For real. Unpopular opinion here, but to be honest I think Gore had better songs than Koi No Yokan and definitely Diamond Eyes. What brought it down was the lackluster production. I hope they remaster it one day like they did the old albums.

All the major European ones have been announced though. If it was coming out before then they'd be on them now. A late year release date, or at least a post-summer one seems more likely, with them doing the major festivals the next year.

There's an interview with Chino in this week's Kerrang. They seem to still to be very much in the writing stage from the way he was talking. They are back writing in their Sacramento rehearsal space for the first time in about a decade interestingly.

Purely speculation - I think they record sometime in the next few months for an end of year release.

https://www.reddit.com/r/deftones/comments/c4sctn/is_there_any_official_statement_on_what_the_song/

"Vesanic

Pretty sure it is about suicide bombers. While Chino's lyrics often stay far from such topics, the self-titled was their first release after 9/11, which inspired most artists in the whole world. I don't see Chino being an exception. They started writing in 2002 if I'm correct, while 9/11 was in 2001.

"Paint the streets in white" = The dust and smoke from a collapsed building recovering the nearby streets.

"Death is the standard breach for a complex prize" = Islamist terrorists are promised to be forgiven for their suicide if it was done to fight the infidels, and will get their supposed heavenly reward.

"I think it's sweet of you, and your parents are proud" = Chino mocks the terrorists and their blind mistaken following of the family tradition.

"But I would expect it from anyone now to protect life's indigenous sound" = Chino admitting the terrorists see the western culture as a threat to the natural law and they are trying to preserve it.

"Worship, play" = Follow and pray to your god, join the religious game.

"How the streets they swell..." = The crowds nearby the attack growing in size and packing up the streets...

"...while the animals make their way through te crowd" = ...and more suicide bombers infiltrate the civilians.

"If you keep listening, you can hear it for miles" = The sound of death and destruction is loud and unmistakable, you can hear it everywhere in the world.

"God I'd trust everyone quicker with every faint smile" = Chino confesses to being naive and can't make the difference between a normal person and a terrorist in disguise.

"And the crowd goes wild" = Reference to crowds at live shows to make the listener think of the panicked people in the streets running and screaming after an attack.

"And the camera makes you seasick" = Footage of TV news investigating terrorist attacks on site is often shaky and makes the audience dizzy.

"God it's so sweet of you, I know you're proud" = Chino here plays the role of a terrorist trying to reassure themselves about what they're doing, by reminding themselves that their god would want this and is on their side.

"And the car bomb quick clicks, clicks, faint smile" = Not sure about the order of thought here. I guess Chino makes a statement about the sneaky side of the bomb placement.

"It's the same sound" = Not sure about this. Chino making a connection between the heaviness of the song and the loudness of the attack?

"And the crowd goes wild, and the camera makes you seasick" = See above.

"God it's so sweet of you, you know I'm proud" = Again, Chino plays the role of the terrorrist who says to their god they feel no remorse, and they are glad to preach this way.

"And the car bomb quick clicks, clicks with the same sound. It's the same sound, with the same sound." = The car bomb exploding is sonically similar to Deftones playing heavy and Chino screaming almost in agony.

"Hexagram, hexagram, hexagram, hexagram" = Probably a reference to the seal of Solomon, a symbolic hexagram that gave Solomon the power to control good and evil and the ability to converse with animals. "


Tell me you believe in this too! lol

Title: Re: Album Nine
Post by: LG95 on Jul 17, 2019, 03:14 PM
Probably just before/around Dia De Los Deftones, presuming that's an annual thing. If that information about them recording in May/June is correct and Chino does still need to do his vocals then it can't be much earlier. Presumably the single release will go with the album campaign announcement so it'll all have to be ready. And they are usually slow as shit getting it all ready.

My guess: October single release, January/February album release.

And if Chino is quoted with an estimated release date, add five months to it.

I follow Chinoís wife Instagram account. No stalker here, Chino and family has its life and I have mine. But her account is interesting cuz she sometimes leaks informations. Weeks ago she posted a picture of Chino and her tasting Belching Beaver beer for Dia de los Deftones 2. And yesterday she announced they were moving closer to Portland for a couple months. Could it be because Chino is recording his voice there. If itís the case, then We īre far away from the new record... makes my Defrones heart bleeding. But I hope itís not for other reasons like health or family members, which would suck for their personal lives.

Maybe they like waiting until things are at a fever pitch? For me they are. So much so that I created a profile after lurking forever just so I could bitch! But in all seriousness. Would it kill them? No other band I like leaves their fans hanging like this in this day and age. It's brutal.

I sort of like the old fashioned distance between band and fans that they and some bands of similar generations have. It retains an element of mystique.

But yeah it is pretty brutal. And given it's getting close to the end of the year and they promised new music, it would be nice for them to say something soon. I still think single this year, album early next year. I'd love them to drop it sooner though. A sudden album drop or a quick four week album campaign would be ace. I'm really bored of bands doing three or four months between first single and album release.

 "It'll definitely be out next year," Moreno said. "I'm hoping that it'll be earlier on in the year, but I feel like once I give a definitive answer or speculate exactly when, I feel like we'll be held to it [laughs] so I kind of want to continue on. Of course, it'll be out next year, hopefully earlier than later. Our biggest thing is making sure that it's good. We'll be performing it, once it's out, for the next two or three years, so we want to be sure it's the best it can be and want to make everyone happy -- including ourselves."

So a Ledditor met Drank Felgado at the namm convention.

Record is done, out in April and produced by Terry Date. When asked if the record was gonna be heavy, he simply said it sounds like a Deftonesí record.

I think this time itís real. If I remembre well, Stef leaked the releasing month for Gore in an interview in 2016. So I Want to believe. Plus it matches with their Touring schedule. I canít Imagine them headlining Hellfest without the record being out.

Also heard this from another redditor about the sound (I know the dude a little bit, he's a long time follower of DeftonesLive and has a podcast on YouTube, I think he's legit as well)

"I hung out and met some of Chinoís childhood friends at Pasadena Day Dream Festival. We hung out for quite some time. One guy, who Iíll keep private, showed me pictures of him and Chino at the recording studio. He said that Terry Date produced it. He said Chino showed him a few tracks. I was pretty faded, but I think he said it was darker heavier SNW type of a vibe. I bet it comes out in May."



To recap:

- 11/12 songs
- Terry Date producing
- 9-string guitar
- Comes out April/May
- SNW dark-heavy type of album

Penicks has always been a jerk because that's who he claims to be. It's all in good spirit. If you'd been in the forum long enough as you claim, you'd know that. He means maybe 20% of what he says. That's why nobody usually gives a shit about what he says, no matter how negative. At least he's not attacking anyone here.

On the other hand, you registered with that username? With that dude who had created over 100+ accounts to keep calling me a faggot following his first ban, you're not even the first one. Sorry.

Does the recover password function no longer work? Been trying on and off for months to get my old account unlocked but no luck. Anyway, stoked to hear about the new album. Although itíd be nice to hear something official from the band. Itís been a crazy amount of time since theyíve said anything concrete. And saying the new album is sounding like ďDeftonesĒ is kinda what they always say. With all of that being said though, I donít really know what Iím looking for. Something heavier than Gore and with better production maybe. Gore had itís moments but it was lacking in my opinion. Shit, Diamond Eyes is a nice change of pace for the ears after listening to most of Gore. And Iím not the biggest Diamond Eyes fan.

I think Gore is the only album that has bad production.  DE and KNY are flawless on production, and Rosemary might be the best song Deftones have ever done.  Production isnít the problem with SNW, itís the band being on the verge of breaking up and the album being all over the place. Itís not cohesiveb, but I actually prefer it over White Pony.

And then thereís S/T, the last album Deftones put out from Terry...itís arguably the most disliked album until Gore.  SNW was more much critically loved, but itís also divisive amongst fans.

I guess I just donít see the hype for Terry, cuz I think they already surpassed that with Nick.  Not to say Iím not excited, but I was excited about Hyde producing cuz heís done some great hardcore/metal albums...we know how that turned out.

Edit: S/T is my numero uno album by Deftones.  DE and KNY are right behind

Anyway, looking forward to finally hearing some new music. I think itís going to be pretty awesome. Iíve enjoyed most of their stuff over the last 10 years. Bands typically get away from heavier music as they age. But they also sometimes toss in a throwback album in their later years. Whatever it ends up being should be good.

I wholeheartedly agree. Makes me feel like itíll be summer/fall then fall/winter then 2021. I mean, itís not likely. But that little addition of summer kinda makes me doubt itíll be out in April/May like Frank mentioned.

An official single this summer and a fall release for the album. Maybe late summer at the earliest.

So what are you looking for from a new deftones album, what do you guys expect? Which songs and ideas did you like the most from the last album?
even though the mixing of Gore was atrocious, the album as a whole was much more captivating than DE and KYN (imo ofc). I just hope they'll improve their songwriting, I don't know what it is, but in some songs the pop structure seems way more obvious than others (Prayers / Triangles) and it kills the replay value.
And I don't give up on interludes, I still love the idea!
Title: Re: Album Nine
Post by: LG95 on Feb 18, 2020, 04:29 PM
They're still great songwriters so I've no worries with that.

Mischievous side of me hopes this is the softest Deftones album just to throw off all the "LeT StEphEn WrItE tHe HeAvY RiFfS" people.

Really though the only thing I specifically want to hear is Abe produced perfectly again. I want new Abe grooves sounding great in the mix again.

And I don't give up on interludes, I still love the idea!

The single biggest thing I'm looking for is for all of the songs to fit together and form a complete work as opposed to just being a group of random songs. All of their albums are pretty consistent in that regard, but some more than others. Some of the non-Terry albums feel like the songs don't always fit together (SNW and KNY, in particular) and it's one of the reasons I'm so happy Terry is back. I really think he will help them reach that.

As far as the overall sound they are going for, I definitely want something somewhere between dark, spacey, sad and beautiful. I'd definitely love to see them explore more of the futuristic space rock side that they've dabbled with on Minerva, HITE, Xerces, Combat, 976, Acid Hologram, Rubicon, etc. I'm always up for some experimental. Crazier song structures, definitely - and maybe even a few that don't have traditional choruses.

I also don't mind if the album isn't super heavy because let's be honest, this isn't a band of 20-somethings anymore. Of course, I still welcome heavier stuff if they are offering it up. It is a Deftones album, of course. Rumor is the album is heavier than Gore, so we'll see.

And it's a must that Abe and Frank are audible in the mix.

EDIT: Would love a song or two with some piano, too.

Personally I feel like since White Pony they have been repeating the same formula, there's a bit of variation and they have gone on a more pop direction but there isn't a drastic change of sound or any surprises.
I wish they would completely change what they are doing and would come out with a refreshing sound. Personally I would like something heavier in mood and also a lot more experimental but still with some beautiful dreamy and epic parts, but mostly with a dark and heavy feel. Definitely more Steph, Frank, and Abe. Given that the band has been known for mixing heavy and melodic I would like if they would explore a post-metal type of sound and if they would intense fast drumming in a few songs, a lot more synths and that Steph would write more than 2 or 3 riffs per song. I would also appreciate if Chino would play around with his vocal style, do more rhythmic stuff(no rap thou), more screaming(not all the time thou) and change the type of melodies he uses. Maybe some prog elements(I might be asking to much here). I would genuinely like it if they would do something a bit more ambitious, experimental, heavy and some nice surprises and curveballs. A song featuring Robert Smith on both vocals and guitar would be awesome.I also hope they ditch the pop elements.

In the end, I think they are going to end up coming out with more of the same, It's probably going to be an interesting album with some cool stuff going on but nothing groundbreaking.
Still, I have a little bit of hope that they might give us one really great surprise.

I'm hoping for better production more than anything. Diamond Eyes really grew on me over time, as did KNY, Gore had some OK songs, but quite a lot of passable ones

I'm not expecting anything ground breaking, but want it to be progression from Gore at least

With Terry Date behind the boards, it's an absolute 100% guarantee that the production will be better than Gore.

I pray for them to drop something groundbreaking, but if we're being realistic, I shouldn't expect that because it's probably not going to happen. BUT, how I see it is Diamond Eyes, Koi No Yokan and Gore are all good three-and-a-half to four star albums, but I know deep down that they have it within themselves to drop one more five-star record.

This is exactly how I feel . Think songs like Rubicon really had potential but the production just lacked so much.. What Happened To You has always been the Gem of the Sergio era for me personally. I love it sonically. But I really feel with Terry back in the mix they can create something special. Hoping this 9 string doesnít sound dumb. In my opinion he sounded his best and his heaviest on a 6. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Good times ahead no doubt!!

If they're going for an april/may release, we should hear a single soon.

Rocket skates released on this day in 2010. Album was out on May.

So hopefully the album is set for a release earlier this year and not later.

So what are you looking for from a new deftones album, what do you guys expect? Which songs and ideas did you like the most from the last album?
even though the mixing of Gore was atrocious, the album as a whole was much more captivating than DE and KYN (imo ofc). I just hope they'll improve their songwriting, I don't know what it is, but in some songs the pop structure seems way more obvious than others (Prayers / Triangles) and it kills the replay value.
And I don't give up on interludes, I still love the idea!

Stefís input is vital Deftones DNA and more song writing should be structured on what he brings to the party.

To me, the very few riff-driven songs on Gore felt awkward (Doomed User) and a bit lazy - as if it was an afterthought to include something ďheavyĒ. Iím confident TD will help bring all this together more coherently and capture the quintessential Deftones sound for 2020.

Iíd also like to see Chino lower is vocal range and focus on the darker, emotive, more vulnerable side of things that will also translate better in a live show. I believe there are a few reasons why Gore songs are hardly ever played live - vocal execution is likely one of them as well as some members just not believing in the record.

Title: Re: Album Nine
Post by: Vesanic on Feb 23, 2020, 10:06 PM
A lot of my points were already mentioned by a couple people here.

I have been longing for a new Terry Date style record since Diamond Eyes. No matter how you look at it, and I know KNY is he favorite of a lot of the new fans, Terry is basically a member of the band. He is the only guy able to use the most potential out of the band's sound, because of his craft, his experience with the band, and also the unique bond they have together makes him the only person able to coach them properly while giving the right amount of liberty to what I personally see as their true sound. When Nick heard the Eros material before starting Diamond Eyes, he said "You're not putting that out". It worked out for them in the end commercially and Diamond Eyes is a very good rock record. But I'll never, ever be able to put it on the same level. Chi being gone played its part. Terry being absent made it worse.

This band needs a lot more of Stephen's input. He is the true leader of this band imo. I would trust him enough to be the decision maker, with the sound, the direction, the setlists, etc. The riff on Doomed User is awesome but ruined.

Chino needs to croon more. He has been struggling with high notes even before his vocal damage. He had trouble singing the high notes on Root even in 1995. We all know why Leathers was barely performed, or why 976-EVIL was played only once. That's two examples amongst many. Keep it low, show your vulnerable side, no need to overdo it with parts the fans won't even hear live.

Let Deftones be Deftones. My expectations are huge this time around and I seriously believe this record will give them the light they have always deserved.

And for crying out loud, put that snare back where it belongs in the mix.
Title: Re: Album Nine
Post by: Inkblades on Feb 23, 2020, 10:38 PM
I also want to see Stephen get his darker, fuzzier tone back (not sure if that's a realistic hope, considering the 9-string). And not resorting to repetitive, overly-simplistic riffs. I think we all know he can do better than what he offered up on Diamond Eyes, the end of Rosemary, the Gore chorus, etc.

Entirely possibly. If not likely. Not sure why I said that like a moron. But anyway, Iíll take it when I can get it. Summer, Fall, whatever. Itís going to be the first proper record in a long time. DE, KNY and Gore were decent. But they were warmups. Thereís been so much time since the last one. They know what theyíre doing and so does Terry. Weíre waiting this long for a good reason.

But the band is still going to make the music they want to make, for all you know, it could be a better-sounding continuation of Gore. Getting your expectations sky-high in anything rarely leads to happiness.

I love Gore, but I would love some darker songs. Not even necessarily heavy, just darker. The first part of (L)MIRL is exactly the kind of sound that I think they excel at, if they give it the exposure it deserves.

I agree with most of this. Terry doesnt have me on board as a savior as much as some but production wise there is no way it can be worse than Gore. If itís a better sounding Gore, Iím in.

I'd be more than happy with a better-produced continuation of Gore, because my issues with it are not with the songwriting. The songwriting is mostly solid and some of the best of the Sergio era IMO (it's really a shame the mix wasn't always up to par). However, I have to disagree that will happen for two reasons. One, the sound and style of the music always changes every album (somewhat off topic, but it's why I don't believe those who say Eros just sounded like Saturday Night Wrist 2 - Smile sounds NOTHING like any of SNW). Two, some of the negative fan reception, all the hoopla about Stephen not being enamored with creating it and Deftones even posting a picture of flamingos hovering around trash pretty much guarantees they will go in a different direction and likely even a wildly different direction.

As for the return of Terry, I get what you're saying. Expectations are a motherfucker and can definitely lead to disappointment. It would also be silly to expect an album that's going to magically transport us back to the late 90's or early 00's. Truth is, yes, we probably won't get an album that's as heavy-hitting as Around the Fur was or as much of a game-changer as White Pony was. I'm simply looking for an album that has exploratory songwriting and consistent production - and, yes, maybe the best album of the Sergio era. My expectations are high but not out of the stratosphere.

Also, it is Deftones releasing a new album. It's hard not to get hyped up lol. I get hyped up on every album release. This band has always been like a drug to me, so when I find out the producer of my three favorite albums is returning, it's like the dealer telling me it's the purest, most uncut cocaine he has gotten in seventeen years. That's if I were into cocaine. I'm not.

I agree with this except for one point. Well kind of one point. Your point about heavy or soft doesnít really matter. To me it does. At least a little. They do both very well. And both are essential to what they do. But for me, Iíve gotta have some songs with teeth. Nothing crazy. Gore had just enough. Doesnít have to be a sequel to their older stuff. But I also feel as though they should do whatever represents who they are today. If thatís a significantly softer record, then so be it. Iíll have to accept it. Iíd be a little disappointed.

Post by: RaptureWS on Feb 26, 2020, 03:43 AM
I'll be the first to admit I am rather impatient. With that said, the wording in the Mixdown article has me a bit concerned.

"With no new album to sell to a captive audience (yet, at least), Deftones will spend this year playing shows as a celebration of their legacy"

Currently in the mixing process, the album is slated for a potential release in the second half of 2020, if everything goes to plan.

Those statements combined have me worried the album may not be released by the time the summer tour rolls around. If it's not out by the time the tour starts then I highly doubt it would drop during the tour...Ö.which means September at the earliest. I don't know what Abe told them that they didn't quote. Maybe it's just conjecture.

This is the longest wait between records in Deftones entire career and I am getting angsty. But Terry is at the helm and I personally loved Gore (shit production aside and some lazy riffs aside). I'm sure it will be worth the wait. I have Googled "Deftones" literally at least once a day since like December hoping for some big news. I even check here multiple times a week. I always waiting for the day the Album Nine thread grows from 12 pages to 22 pages overnight. Then I would know something major happened or got announced lol. For now, I think the big news is I can stop obsessing for a few weeks/months.

Also, I'm still holding out hope they incorporate a new song into their setlist when they start touring in March, though I'm not sure if they would do that during a festival run. Historically, have they premiered songs during festivals? Or is it usually during their own headline shows?

Adrenaline material was debuted way before its release, as those demos had been written way before they were even considered for a contract.
ATF material was debuted prior to the album release, a whole 5-6 months in fact, at headline shows. The songs were not finished though.
WP material, the intro of Pink Maggit was first played in 1998 on a headline tour. Korea was played in 1999 at Ozzfest, a touring festival as opposed to a 2-3 day festival.
S/T material was first played on a headline tour a pair of weeks before the album dropped.
SNW material was first played almost 10 months prior to the album release. on the Taste of Chaos tour. Not sure that counts as a festival.
DE material was first played in 2009, on their opening slot on the Slipknot tour, about 7 months before the album release.
KNY material (Rosemary) was first played at private show in Burbank, about 4 months before the release.
Gore material was performed about a month before the release, at a festival.


I wouldn't take this info into account for speculation. All of these occurrences were in North America, and they're touring Oceania next month. Also, given how they're taking their time with this record and how they want to make it right, they might hold off on premiering new material pre-release altogether. Here's to hoping I'm completely wrong. After all, they are starting that tour with a headline date in Auckland.

^ Agreed.

Also, not to be an alarmist, but the coronavirus might really affect the summer European and U.S. shows. Some artists are already cancelling their tours, sporting events are being affected and even movies like the new Bond flick are having their release dates pushed back. The Australia shows seem to definitely still be on, but after that, I'm not so sure now.

Sure enough, a new Deftones album with Terry Date and WP turning 20 complete the prophecy. Apocalypse is now.

Seriously though, quite a few major metal acts have cancelled their tour. I don't see how Deftones would be an exception, they might even cancel Australia last minute depending on how the situation evolves in the US and over there. Although the circumstances are very different, this gives me an eerie remembrance of the 2016 Euro tour...

I think You are talking about 2015 European tour. We arrived in Berlin just a few days after terror act in Paris, while where was still no info if they will cancel the tour or not. We ended up going to see Fidlar and just wondering in Berlin. Now again, with the same friend, we plan to see Deftones in Berlin this summer. I hope the tour won't be canceled.

They'll probably cancel shows, and this is probably why:

All the bands cancelling shows because of coronavirus are doing so because their insurance companies updated their policies to not cover cancellations due to the virus. I know because ours did the same

And the Australia tour is now postponed. It's the right move, obviously.

The Beale Street Festival in May is still on for now, but I can definitely see that being cancelled too if this thing keeps getting worse, which it likely will.

If all their shows for the year get cancelled, I could see the album release actually being pushed up.

 Do you people with more logic than I think the spread of COVID-19 is having an impact on when the album will release? I mean everything is essentially cancelled or postponed. Itís truly unprecedented. Do you think the album will still follow itís original journey to release or no?

My guess is it will delay it as the band will not be able to travel to do any press etc. I always thought it would be out Sep/Oct, so that might still be the case

Sergio has been streaming on Twitch the past couple days. I went and asked him if he could give us any idea on when we might get a single. In a very polite manner, he basically gave a non-answer. Said "art can't be rushed". He also said something along the lines of it's not that he CAN'T say anything, he just doesn't know what to say at this moment. He said "I'm not trying to be cryptic" as well. He finished with something like this (I am paraphrasing) -Even I did know something, you gotta have some secrets in a crazy time like this. With all this access to information at our fingertips, it's nice to know something that not everyone else knows.-

I feel terribly selfish but that answer kind of bums me out. I can't even begin to describe my anticipation for this new album. I was already at full on hype mode, but now with this COVID shit being so fucked up and depressing, a new Deftones track would truly inject some real happiness into my life and many others as well. Fortunately, I know that other fans feel the same way and I know they are taking their time because they want this to be an amazing album to experience. Must remain patient and respect the band and their decisions.

Hope you all are doing alright during quarantine! The wait continues...

Even if the album was done and ready to be promoted, I think the pandemic has really forced them into delaying. You can release a single and album title, release date, etc., sure. But we don't know how long this is going to last. And even when things get better, there very well might be a second wave, resulting in another pandemic. Hard to book tours and festivals promoting your brand new album with that level of uncertainty, especially since touring is such a good source of income over simply album sales.

I mean it definitely sucks, we could all do with some new Deftones music to get excited about. But I understand him not saying anything.
