Yessss new record baby!

Loved the Ohms track and surprising its the last song the album!

My thoughts about the song summarized:
- love the Ďfullí guitar and drums sound
- vocal production reminds me of S/T
- sounds fresh, more original than Gore imo.

Some cool sounding song names on the record for sure. This link is dead instead of This place is dead? Lol

Post by: Frozen Curry on Aug 20, 2020, 04:42 PM
I don't like it that the closing track is the first single... also the song doesn't have a closing feel to it. In my opinion this should be the opener or maybe one of the first three songs of the album...

I think Pink Maggit was the best closer for their albums. Wish they would do such an epic closing track again, maybe in a different style but still something epic.

This is one of those moments where I feel as old as I am (42) in terms of knowing my way around online. Not sure where to look for the track...though that 30 second sample on NZ Apple is nice. Heavy Pumpkins influence for sure.

Guess I'll repeatedly keep plugging it into YouTube and hope some kind kiwi will post it...

I 100% did not know what to expect before listening to the song and it still surprised me in every way imaginable. I really can't think of one song in their catalogue that sounds like this. Funny how I was pretty frightened of just how low Steph would go now that he got a 9-string, but this sounds like it could be played on a 6-string. As always, loved the song titles too.

I don't like it that the closing track is the first single... also the song doesn't have a closing feel to it. In my opinion this should be the opener or maybe one of the first three songs of the album...
we're hearing it out of context tho, we have (officially) no idea what the other songs sound like

Post by: LG95 on Aug 20, 2020, 04:54 PM
Not generally a fan of hearing the closing track as the first single but I like that it's a change up - everyone usually expects a Deftones closer to be a more obviously experimental, darker song, so Ohms closing could be a really cool switch in the context of the album.

I love the album cover.
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: Moz La Punk on Aug 20, 2020, 04:57 PM
Catchy closing songs like this one have an advantage: as soon as its done you want to start up the album again!

Also dont forget that Swerve City was supposed to be the closer of KNY.

So after ALL that effort, they don't even officially announce it, they just throw it on iTunes lol. Tracklist looks super intriguing though. Not a big fan of the artwork but I dig it for it's connection to the album title, and I'd be interested in hearing their reasoning in interviews. Can't wait to listen to the song!

If Deftones are good for anything aside from music, it's making me feel like an entitled, impatient child.
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: ChubbyChino on Aug 20, 2020, 05:10 PM
I think the only bad thing about this track is that it's too short. It feels like it should go much longer, is this the track that had a 12-min long demo that Chino talked about?

Song is great. Crosses style vocals. Good mix. Honestly, the intro riff sounds like an old 311 song. Iím not saying thatís bad, just a throwback vibe. I like that thereís no forced screaming vocals in it.

Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: macalmx on Aug 20, 2020, 05:11 PM
I noticed the single's intro is kinda similar to Hearts/Wires', like the first second. Will this album be like Gore were the outros and intros connect the songs to each other?

(been lurking here for the past weeks, hope it isn't too late to join the hype here)

How repetitive is the song? Does it have more than two real riffs? Does it rip off any older songs? That is to say, they don't do another 0-2-3 riff or strum two drone chords back and forth.

Actually knowing its the closing track makes me even more hyped, the last 30 seconds are FIRE to close the album with.

Also, compared to Gore, Abe is injecting his drums straight into my ears here. So inportant for the deftones sound!!!! Love ya abe

Lyrics..

Deftones - Ohms

We're surrounded by debris of the past
and it's too late to
cause a change in the tides so we slip
 into a hopeless sea of regret as I stare through the haunted maze in your eyes right through we'll all remain for all time

and time won't change this please
promise me yeah time won't change this it's how we'll stay

this is our time we devour the days ahead
 we've been possesed by these changing tides
as we slip on through we promise to meet again
 somewhere through the haunted maze
 in our minds right through where we shall remain for all time

and time will change this please promise me now time wont change this we shall remain

The cover has me conflicted. Asthetically, and in terms of a Deftones cover, I really do like it. It sets a certain tone and is both pretty and menacing at the same time (as all things Deftones should be). But at the same time, it's sort of disappointing because it looks like someone spent 5 minutes in Microsoft Paint and BAM there's your cover.

I guess I'll be the first one to say it - I do not like the new song. Maybe it was my own foolish expectation thinking the last song on the album would be "heavy" or another "Pink Maggit", but I honestly thought the main riff was a joke at first. This sounds like something that could've dropped with Gore. I am super happy for everyone who clicks with the song immediately, but I am definitely not one of those people.  :-\

Not sure about the main riff, but the little fill/lead in at the start felt cheesy to me. But I do like to hear the guys having fun...which is why I don't mind Gore nearly as much as other people.

It's not the most amazing song I've ever heard, far from it, but it's alright. I was prepared for something far heavier since the album had been advertized as such compared to the 2010's releases.

Not having any expectations is the best way to enjoy something. You can only blame yourself if you visualize what you want in your head and expect that I made that mistake too many times with deftones. Songs more than alright. I MUCH prefer this over anything on Gore

First impressions:  Vocally it's Chino in his safe zone (I'll never complain about his vocals... ever). I dig the lyrics. Musically the bass and drums sound Deftones, but Steph definitely experiments with new sounds which is exciting. I didnít catch much from Frank, honestly, but may have missed it.

It isn't a mind blowing song, but I wouldn't quite call it "safe" bc of that guitar. It makes perfect sense as a first single... despite it being a closer which is a weird choice. All in all, I really like it, and will be playing the shit out of it... but most excited to hear what's next.

Who advertised the album as heavy?

Twenty years after White Pony and people are still getting hung up on "is it heavy?", as if they've never listened to Deftones before. Not having a go at you particularly, but a few people are going in with that question/expectation and they inevitably end up disappointed when it's not 'heavy' enough for them. Happens every album.

And eventually they go back and realise the record is great. See S/T and SNW. See even White Pony - there were fans who thought that record was too soft, didn't have enough screaming etc. Which is obviously mental but that's what having too many stylistic expectations can do.

I was gonna say it comes from comments made by Chino in the press months ago, but I double checked and it actually is two years old:
Quote
In May 2018, Moreno was again asked about the new material and he stated the songs were "considerably heavier" than those on Gore.[101]
So yeah, the blame is totally on me for this since back then the album wasn't formed at all and they were just doing demos. I think I just accepted naively that the album would be heavier than the last three ones and followed that line of beliefs.

Entombed is one of my favs from Koi, if he does something of its level or even better on Ohms i'll be delighted.

It honestly doesnít sound much like S/T era to my ears. Not to kill your hype, itís a good song, just donít go into it with any expectations! Iím having a hard time drawing comparisons to past albums in general honestly, this very much sounds like itís own thing to me.

I like it - it's a fun, energetic, catchy rock ditty. Almost some classic rock vibes riff wise, like The Who or something. Someone mentioned Pittura and I can hear the similarities there. I don't think it's Chino's most mindblowing performance or anything, but I do really like when he hits the "through the haunted maze" note and other moments (I wrote a screenplay about a haunted maze of sorts, so it feels cool to hear that personally). The chorus has that blissed-out vibe he had going on during S/T and SNW IMO.

I think the weird, creepy sounding synthlike distortion in the very beginning is a hint as to what Headless will sound like because it's track 9. I wouldn't necessarily peg Ohms as a closer as it sounds more like a song that would be, say, a track 2 or 3 for me, but to be fair, I can't really make that call until I have the album in full.

And Terry's production is really evident. Sounds super crisp and fucking massive at the same time. Welcome back, sir. Good to have you back.

It sounds nothing like S/T, but you should still be hyped.

Ok guys, all this talk about it sounding like "S/T era" is hyping the fuck out of me.  Shit, having to wait till tomorrow will suck!

The new track is amazing. Terry mothafuckin' Date is back on the team, thank god.  Chino's vocals float PERFECTLY in the mix. That was the biggest problem I had with Gore, his voice just seemed on top of everything rather than being like another instrument in the mix. I'm getting some Smashing Pumpkins vibes as well. Did anyone see Chino perform with them? That was awesome.

It's kinda weird though how the first single is the album closer... not complaining however.

Final lyrics all cleaned up and fixed from last post


Deftones - Ohms

---------------

We're surrounded
by debris of the past
and it's too late
to cause a change in the tides
so we slip into a hopeless sea of regret
as I stare through the haunted maze
in your eyes
right through
we'll all remain
for all time

and time won't change this
this promise made
yeah time won't change this
it's how we'll stay

this is our time
we devour the days ahead
we've been possessed by these changing tides
as we slip on through
we promise to meet again
somewhere
through the haunted maze
in our minds
right through
where we shall remain
for all time


and time won't change this
this promise we made
and time won't change this
we shall remain

Holy shit that was awful.  Riff is straight up CKY/Weezer but far less interesting/memorable.  Vocals are straight out of Crosses, both melody and lyrics - very typical Chino.  Artwork is tired and unimpressive.  Song titles came out of a Deftones-song-title-generator.  Time for Deftones to put more energy into rehashing their past (via reissues, behind the scenes content, documentary footage, etc.) and less energy into a craft that they are no longer masters of.

Finally listened to the song. At first I didn't like it, but about halfway into it I realised that was because it was completely different from what I expected. It's awesome, and to be honest it really does sound like Stef is maybe coming out of his safe/comfort zone, which isn't a bad thing, and just goes to show how much more invested he is this time around compared to Gore. It kind of reminds me of Rubicon, the closer of the album ending almost on a (sonically) high note? Either way, I'm excited!

Not talking about a difference of opinion though. You can like or dislike something as is your right.

I guess understanding the music? idk, some of the stuff he praises is not that great imo. He clearly isn't a fan of this type of music, it all depends where you lean more towards that shapes your individual opinions.

Heís a fan of plenty of heavy bands. He rates/has rated bands like Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Napalm Death, Daughters, and Nails pretty highly and consistently highly. But he has equally as many takes, specifically when it comes to heavy music, where Iím left kind of confused by how he came to certain conclusions. That being said, those bands are very different to Deftones of course, and heís never been extremely kind to Deftones in his reviews lol. Not that he hates them as far as I know, heís mentioned how he likes SNW in one of his reviews. I donít this track is going to do it for him though lol.

Guys, i'm weak. I couldn't wait anymore and finally listened to it and... Ohhh fuck me it's so GOOD!

Terry Date is finally back and you can clearly listen to it in the production/mix. It's unbelievable how he brings the best of Deftones, and I know it's only one song but it feels more "Deftones" than anything from Gore or KNY.

Also, I definitely hear how this song sounds like something from S/T or SNW era, and it's mainly because of Chino. Now, y'all see, since Diamond Eyes I felt that he slowly  embraced the singing part of his voice and discarded the "performance" aspect of it. Here it seems he's finally mixing them both again and it sounds so freaking good.

so where is that nature cover art?

When did I say that?

Not referring to cover art.

When I was in my teens and 20's, I gravitated towards their darker, moodier sounding stuff - probably why ATF, WP and S/T have always been my favorite albums from them. I'll still always crave that sound, but now that I'm in my 30's and with the current shit state of the world, I do appreciate the upbeat vibe going on here. The riffs kinda makes me feel like I'm flying.

My only criticism with Ohms is it feels like it needs one more passage to make it feel a bit more epic and push it over the top. It would have been cool if it had a second bridge where the guitars dropped out for a moment so the synths and drums could get some time to shine (yeah, a breakdown lol). Overall, it's a solid song, but I do still kind of feel that it's "minor" Deftones.

I find myself disagreeing with Fantano very often. I can't believe his review on HUM's latest.
The one where he criticised that faultless guitar tone? Yeah lol.

Heís a fan of plenty of heavy bands. He rates/has rated bands like Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Napalm Death, Daughters, and Nails pretty highly and consistently highly.
He definitely likes the frenetic, more spastic stuff.

Fantano's an easy target but his rock and metal review are so often way off point, I can't really take him seriously with those bands. It surprises me he actually appreciates a great band like Code Orange because I find he's rarely on point with most other heavy stuff.

Meanwhile Fantano gives the highest praise to shitty/mediocre rappers.

I'm sure you'd make a great music reviewer with this way of thinking. Fantano praises bands/artist from all genre. You don't have to necessary agree with him, but his rap taste are pretty decent.

Hey first post!

My simple "Ohms" ratings :

Music - 7 >> Guitar sounds different to me, not the usual Deftones sound which is not bad, I like new things. Riff is great but a bit too catchy.
Lyrics - 8 >> Usual Chino lyrics, love them.
Variety/Risk - 6 >> There are no great variations during the whole song, a bit repetitive.
Voice - 7 >> Comfortable for Chino, sounds good.

Overall the song is around a 7 to me. I like it but it is not revolutionary. I am afraid the catchiness will tire me sooner than I hope. We will see.

Artwork - 5 >> Sorry, I don't really like it. Not really my thing.

Really eager to listen to the full album!

Swerve City has grown on me A LOT, especially within the last year or so. I used to think it was kind of an underwhelming opener, but I find myself throwing it on much more, more often than a track like say Diamond Eyes, which in contrast I loved at the time it came out. I think I just realized Iím not a big fan of that bouncy opening riff on Swerve City, but Iíve come to realize that I literally love every other part of that song.

Iíve actually seen this become a trend for the last few years bands to drop the closer as a single, at least with a lot of bands I listen to. Usually Iím against it because the last track tends to be the most cinematic and adventurous on most albums, so it definitely softens the blow of an album when it drops. But it might not be to bad in this case. As someone pointed out before, I could see this song as being more of an ďepilogueĒ, like it might follow the song that is the true gargantuan song in the track list (so maybe thatís what Headless will be?).

 Exactly. Their album closers are the most important songs to me and have been my favorite songs on the last six records. And Iím not saying this is a bad album closer. I just did not want to hear this first. Itís a gorgeous song. Chorus is absolutely beautiful. Chino sounds very innocent I love it. Almost like some of the softer parts on around the fur. Iím even getting  A little bit of the boys Republic chorus ... This really shows how bad the production was on Gore. Which is a shame.

If Ohms is the Moana of this album then we are in for a real treat.

@Vesanic your post has me super stoked to hear the rest of this album.

Simple question for those who heard "the leaks" - is OHMS the top tier song on the record ? Or are there some gems which will blow our minds ?

I'm asking because I'm a bit surprised they choose Ohms as a single. Nothing against the song, it's great and mostly probably I will fall in love with that song in few years :D But comparing to all other first singles...it's just "OK".

Their videos are the one aspect of Deftones I never really care about seeing. Maybe this one will be alright.

the new Ohms video premiers in 7 hours on youtube
really they made a video for it?
I doubt it'll be a performance video.

It is  not. And that's not a bad thing. I love Ohms, but it's not top tier, at least for me.

I wish they would do covers and b-sides again for this release.
oh i know, we haven't gotten a proper b-side since "lovers" in 2003. there was supposedly one for Diamond eyes, "crest", but i guess it was never properly recorded/mixed/mastered. Vesanic heard them jamming it in warm up before a show, if i remember correctly. that's about all we know of it. i don't count consider "smile" a b-side. since it's part of Eros. give us a new b-side fellas, it's going on 20 years!

Ohms was one of my least favourites probably. And I love it.

I know the passages Ves is talking about btw (I think we might have discussed them weeks ago via PM?)

Yes. And I agree about Ohms. Strong song, it's just such a weird pick. It feels as if they chose Moana to promote the S/T.

The other songs sound almost nothing like this so don't worry. Even though Ohms is good, there are way more standouts in other tracks

When they talked about covering Elvis I was like... um.. but then I realized that might be dope. Then they were like "nah, fans expect that shit so we're not doing it" and I was super bummed. Lovers was awesome, I would LOVE to hear Crest. DE had some really cool covers, what would you all like to hear them cover?

It's a pretty special time, over ten years since Chi's accident, Terry Date is back, talks of WP remix album and Eros EP.

As for covers, this has Deftones and Chino written ALL OVER IT.

They picked the right song to open the album with. that's all.

Edit: I think it's the closest song to sound like lovers... And I love it for that.

Great day full of news, tracklist, single and video premiere. Now all we need are bundles and hopefully with it some bonus tracks. The only kinda meh or negative thing about this new album is the artwork that in my honest opinion seems like a 10 years old made it, with that said I hope I'm not ruining anyone's parade.

I love the new track. LOVE it. Maybe my 2nd fav single/song drop of the Sergio era, 2nd to Leathers.

That said, I would say it does not fully represent the album (one Deftones song never would anyways). For those wondering/hoping for those dark sounds everyone has been mentioning....they are there. And they will be glorious. No one knows how anyone else will feel about the new album. That said, I think it's reasonable for you all to get pretty hyped for this album ;)

I'd love a deluxe version with the two leftover songs as bonus tracks, but I doubt it. I think Deftones are really a "what you see is what you get" kinda band.

I don't know, at least half the albums have had hidden tracks, b-sides, and/or covers of some sort or another. That hasn't been the trend lately but maybe they've gone back.

Swerve City is their catchiest song by far, I still remember hearing their little teaser for it and getting hyped about it.


Based purely on song title alone, what songs are you all most excited about hearing? For me, Pompeji and This Link is Dead. Pompeji just sounds cool, and This Link is Dead reminds me of This Place Is Death and (L)MIRL (the latter being one of my favourite ever Deftones songs).

Can't get Belching Beaver beers on the east coast. Every time I go to Phoenix or LA (which is a few times a year), I fly a 6 pack of phantom bride in the carry-on back with me. I've never seen any of the other ones. I swear I went to 10+ spots looking for the Swerve City beer with no luck

The track is brilliant.
Im just going around my neighborhood driving slamming it in the car. I'm just so pleased with the production.
Terry really reigns in the beautiful nuances from each member, whilst REALLY serving the actual song. I just haven't felt that captured in a long time, especially in the last few albums.
Im actually getting a massive ATF vibe from the mix.
And i love how chino isnt draped in reverb or delay or over the top layering. Its just right, and his melodies just swoop in and out of the gazing riffs.

FUCK YEAH. Im so amped for this album.
10 times more than i was after hearing P/T.

I really love the track, amazing riff, Chino does a great job on the vocals, the production is awesome, it really feels like Terry Date's hand. Vega's bass sound is very felt.

I couldn't be happier, it really is a great first release and a very good pick as a single.

The album promises a lot, I feel like there is a return to the roots without losing sight of doing different things. There is an incredible progression and maturity in the sound.

The 24bit is another thing, thanks a lot @slacker!

Damn so much happening I can't seem to keep up! Very excited though and wondering what kind of bundles they may put up for pre-order or not put up due to Covid shit and putting out any vinyl might be an issue and major delay. I saw someone mention that a textured album art vinyl release would be tight I second that. Really fun time to be a hardcore fan much respect from a insane long time lurker to all you fools. Always fun to see how many people post when new info like this pops up honestly really great to watch everyone talk it up.

With all the hype about Steph being more on board I was really hoping for something way more riff heavy throughout the whole first single. The first main riff of Ohms also kind of reminds me of Witchy Woman by the Eagles. Ohms isn't a horrible song. But also not blown away by Ohms and wanting to keep playing it over and over.

This is totally my fanboy bias talking, but the one thing I want to see even more than Ohms getting a high score on Metacritic is for it to take the number one album of 2020 on sputnikmusic:

https://www.sputnikmusic.com/best/albums/2020/

They are pretty highly regarded on that site by most of the users so we'll see. The #1 album they have to beat has a 4.2 score, so I think they have a good shot.

Ohhhhhhhhh! That makes sense. Bought it anyway :)

I also didn't like it at all at first, but after I found out it's Chi's eyes it became special!
is it confirmed that it's Chi's eyes?

Not confirmed, but it matches that picture perfectly.

Probably tied with Sextape for my favorite vid.

Sextape looks gorgeous if you have one of the phone 3d veiwer things (or I guess actual VR headsets) and watch it on youtube vr so it's just all you can see. just looks so great.

Yeah Sextape was my fav Deftones video by far....but this one is right up there. Two wildy different styles though. Overall I am incredibly impressed with this video. And honestly this entire album rollout. Now I see why they were sooo adamant about keeping shit under wraps. They really had something special planned. It's been an amazing week!

I've gotta admit, I'm still curious why the band only chose ten songs to put on the album when thirteen were written apparently. I was getting used to seeing eleven songs. I hope the extras get released someday (along with "Crest" for heaven's sake) or are used for the next album.  ;)

The ďthrooouuuggghhhĒ part at around 1:05 is kind of reminiscent to something on KNY for sure.

That part sounds like Future Warrior from the Palms album.

The album artwork and title feels like a real homage to Chi. Not only the cover art but maybe the title itself. With Chi being a Buddhist, the Om symbol and sound is an important part of Buddhism (and Hinduism).

When I first listened to Ohms I was kinda underwhelmed, but have found myself wanting to listen to it again and again and it has massively grown on me. This reaction often happens with new Deftones singles. I like the upbeat vibe to it, it's not as heavy as I was expecting but their album closers are normally pretty chill compared to the opening tracks so it makes sense. Plus, after the year we've been through, it's a pretty refreshing and summery sounding song but in a good way. The kinda song that's designed for cruising down a sunny highway to with the roof down.

Listened to the song for the first time and there is so much I already love about it! Love Chino's vocals (reminds me a lot of his vocals from KNY and SNW), the guitar, that effect by Frank at the end, and of course the overall production on it!  I can definitely imagine this being a good album closer especially if some of the tracks before this are darker.  I can't help but feel like this is what some of the tracks (especially in the 2nd half of it) should have sounded like.  Very, very happy with this and can't wait to listen to it again + the rest of the album!

Couldn't help myself. Got ripped and watched the video a couple times last night.

First, one of their better videos. Love this band, but have been eternally frustrated by how the videos often don't match the vibe of their music.

Musically, dug it. No rehashes of old riffs or sounds here. The structure is varied enough to keep it interesting with some amazing textures. Steph's guitar is obviously the driving force behind the song and some of the effects he used here blew me out of the water. Sounds like an electric field or video game sound effects at times, in a good way. Can see what some people were saying about it sounding like 311 and Smashing Pumpkins (never got into CKY so I can't comment on that), and it definitely sounds different for the band, but still like something they should be doing. The breakdown riff towards the end also gave me a Hum vibe as well, reminding me of stuff like Dreamboat or the breakdown in Stars. On that note, I do wish like others have said, that they stayed on that outro for longer. Chino stated that the song was initially 12 minutes, and that Steph really loves to drive home his riffs. I could totally see the song droning on at the end with that riff a la Hum, adding some fills and flourishes to keep it fresh, and just creating this wall of sound that crescendos before abruptly cutting out. Hope that 12 minute mix still exists somewhere.

Terry Date produced this well. Gore still sounds like garbage to this day, but I will maintain that Deftones' producers are more important for how the album sounds than the overall quality of the songwriting. Gore suffers both from how it sounds and the lack of enthusiasm of the band for crafting the songs.

The artwork really grew on me last night as well. My girlfriend and I stared at it for a while and brought away a bunch of different interpretations. Initially I thought it was really dumb because it looked like something a 10 year old made in MS paint. But the abstract and lo-fi quality of it I think is genius now. My girlfriend pointed out that if you cover either of the eyes, it looks like the image reverses (the left eye will look like a right eye and vice versa).

A little sad that the album doesn't appear to be that long, but if they made something that sounds cohesive and bleeds the songs together to make it feel longer, I will be happy. Hoping it feels as tight as WP and KNY.

Well my memory is complete shite... yeah i searched all the way back up to the 2006 archives but couldn't find anything. I could've sworn it started then but oh well. I just remember what a shit show it was waiting for that record. De was the fastest we've ever had news of an album being made to hearing the final product. Chi's accident was in Nov 2008 and we had a brand new record by May 2010. It seems like it started farther back and KNY doesn't feel like a long time ago, so until an older post is found that is the OG "2 more hours"...

I'm looking for someone willing to look for the OG two more hours, I need to know who unknowingly instigated this

Is it possible that the album version of Ohms is a bit longer? The track is amazing imo, and I think there is space for an additional, intense ending/outro (in the vein of BQAD single vs album version).

However, I could see the main riff becoming repetitive if that was the case. Plus, what we got is pretty intense on its own.

like everyone else, I thought it was odd that they chose the last song on the album for the first single since those songs are in a category of their own and get compared.

I would be ok with them adding a little something extra or maybe a pause and a hidden track or something

Gotcha. I ain't mad about that! I'm pumped to see how it works as an album closer. If anything, the way it ends inspires more listens to scratch that itch.

Yeah, entirely agree. It's a swerve for them to have released the album closer as a single, as has been said, especially given their track record of how they end their albums. I really wonder what the preceding song is like as Ohms, the song, presumably is the resolve and soother to what I am imagining is the maelstrom that comes before it.

So Stef suggests that the second single will be released fairly soon - do we have an idea of what song it might be? I hope it's just the one more before the album drops and, given how relatively soon that is, imagine that will be the case. As much as I want to hear the new material, I don't want to hear too much pre album release.

Wow same here, I had to return to S/T and SNW today. It made me sad, because somwhere deep inside I had a feeling that they will never release anything better (for me) than S/T, WP or SNW :( I wish I'm wrong this time.

BTW I'm wondering if we will get one more single before 9/25.

Personally I would prefer to get whole record without any more singles. It can ruin the expectations for whole record :D

I heard complaints about chino's voice on that song, saying he sounds more like he does on side project like crosses. I seriously don't get that. To me, it's just chino being chino, nothing much different than how he sounded on Minerva or something like that.

I mean he doesn't hit the same notes, but i'm just talking about the singing style.

I really love the track, amazing riff, Chino does a great job on the vocals, the production is awesome, it really feels like Terry Date's hand. Vega's bass sound is very felt.

I couldn't be happier, it really is a great first release and a very good pick as a single.

The album promises a lot, I feel like there is a return to the roots without losing sight of doing different things. There is an incredible progression and maturity in the sound.

The 24bit is another thing, thanks a lot @slacker!

Luisch? Thatís a name I remember seeing a lot when I registered! The only one I havenít seen is From_Musings. Otherwise just about everyone has chimed in. At least from when I started which wasnít that long ago. Itís awesome!

The new track is amazing. Terry mothafuckin' Date is back on the team, thank god.  Chino's vocals float PERFECTLY in the mix. That was the biggest problem I had with Gore, his voice just seemed on top of everything rather than being like another instrument in the mix. I'm getting some Smashing Pumpkins vibes as well. Did anyone see Chino perform with them? That was awesome.

It's kinda weird though how the first single is the album closer... not complaining however.

this guy is 100% right, this was my biggest issue too. vocals sound GREAT on the new song, sounds like something from the Terry Date era albums, vocally.  when KNY came out, i thought it was a good album as far as songs (same with DE) but the vocals were so prominent on all the other albums that weren't produced by Terry Date (save for SNW, but that was a clusterfuck of producers apparently)

But, yes, vocals sound great, super well mixed in. He has that older croon that was his trademark, imo. I remember an interview, abe saying that they got back some of the hallmark things of their sound that they had with Terry, I think this is some of what he was talking about.

Also shout out to the drum mix, so crisp. this is like digital bath levels of crisp.

This place is so chill now for the moment. It's a bit odd. Probably a nice break for the mods though. This is the calm before the 2nd storm so to speak. In general it's probably gonna be a rather quiet couple of weeks .It will pick up some when the next single drops for a couple days. Then probably go chill again for another week or two before slowly building up and eventually morphing into a moderators worst nightmare when the album drops. Lets pray it doesn't leak.....

Does he save/upload his streams or anything? I enjoy him even though I rarely agree with him (general sentiment a lot of people share).
I think they're uploaded to YouTube a couple of days after the streams been done

Post by: RaptureWS on Aug 22, 2020, 06:57 AM
I woke up at like 8am yesterday to go to the bathroom. I checked here out of habit and saw the single had dropped overseas. So of course I was up for a few hours listening to it and checking in around here.

I absolutely love the song. Those opening/closing riffs are so fun and jammy. The song itself is very warm, bright and almost euphoric. I was very surprised at first that it was the closing track. After hearing Chino's remarks about it in the NME interview it makes more sense though. Rubicon was a lot more intense, but it also had that optimistic, euphoric vibe. Rubicon is more of a soaring song while Ohms is a bit more grounded, but that's three albums in a row now with very optimistic closing tracks. Earlier in their career they always went with dark and experimental tracks. What Happened To You definitely fits the experimental description, but not at all a "dark" song IMO.

I'm trying to find the words to explain this, because people will think I am crazy.......Ohms feels like the shadow, the other side of the coin, the ying to the yang of Hexagram. Just that big, rhythmic guitar driven sound. Hexagram is the gritty, unsettling dark side-whereas Ohms is the warm, safe and uplifting bright side. Probably doesn't make sense to most people, but it just reminded me of Hexagram right out of the gate. Now when I listen to Hexagram, I hear shades of Ohms as well. Ok, so hence the description "safe" though. Ohms does have its own unique sound, but it's not surprising. You can never guess what Deftones will do, but once you hear it you're like "Yep. THAT is Deftones". Ohms, while different, makes perfect sense as a Deftones song. It doesn't blow you away and blindside you with something totally unexpected. Hexagram did though. After WP, no one knew what to expect with S/T........but when they first popped on the album, I can't imagine many people were expecting what they heard on that first track. I doubt that all makes much sense. But's that what I am good at. Writing paragraphs trying to explain something just for it to read like nonsense lol.

Back to Ohms as it stands on it's own........It's my 2nd favorite pre-album single in the Sergio era, behind only Leathers. So yeah, I like it more than Rocket Skates, Diamond Eyes, Tempest, Prayers and Doomed User. My only two complaints would be that Frank sounds almost invisible, and there was no interesting bridge. Those are pretty glaring flaws. I'm particularly worried about Frank. Hopefully it's just this one track. I'd be super sad if he was this low in the mix on a lot of songs. I'd still give it a solid 8/10 though.

At the end of the day, it's the perfect track to remind the world "Hey, we're back." Nothing too extreme or experimental that would cause too much speculation. ...."Are they going super soft now?"...... "OMG It's so heavy I hope the entire album is like this"....... "Ugh this doesn't even sound like Deftones. They need to stop letting Chino write songs". Unique enough to stand on it's own, but still simply pure Deftones.

"Ugh this doesn't even sound like Deftones. They need to stop letting Chino write songs". Unique enough to stand on it's own, but still simply pure Deftones.

Solid write up. Some thoughts:

1. From what I've heard, you don't have to worry about Frank. He's very audible on the other songs...tokyo even posted something that he quickly deleted about Frank basically owning the album. As for this song, this is clearly the Stephen show, but I do hear Frank coming through on the "through the haunted maze" chorus and other parts. It's very subtle, but it's there. That's because what Frank does is sometimes very subtle, other times more pronounced (except WGTB, Beware and Prayers/Triangles - the mix did him dirty on those songs lol). And then he's more audible at the very beginning and a bit at the end.

2. I agree that the song needs a bridge or something else. I mean, I guess the "and time won't change this" part is technically the 2x bridge, but it maybe needs another bridge. Some of the Koi and Gore songs have this structure where it does feels like the songs just repeat passages and then end, like Entombed, Graphic Nature, Acid Hologram and Rubicon. And those are all solid songs, and so is this, but a sense of relying too much on repetition is occasionally there. Without giving too much away, this was my least favorite song played. It's good, it's fun, the chorus is gorgeous, the production is great - but every other song I heard is even better and more structurally complex.

3. Interesting take on Ohms and Hexagram and I can see your viewpoint. I do have to say, as with so many other Deftones songs, even if its not the most surprisingly epic song they've ever written, god DAMN does Ohms get burned into the head. I mean this song has literally been on a loop in my brain for the past two days. So that alone is a mark of a really good song even if I want a moment or two of more variety.

Post by: RaptureWS on Aug 22, 2020, 08:46 AM
Good point. After the backlash from Gore about Steph not being involved in all that stuff, I would not surprised if this was a somewhat deliberate choice to show off Stephs chops right out of the gate.  And that's great to hear about Frank. I'm so freaking stoked to hear what he's got in store.

Since Gore I got into Team Sleep and Crosses (late to the game with the side projects but the Woodstock Sessions album is now one of my most favourite ear candys), and found myself switching to those after listening Deftones a lot as I'd crave Chinos smoother vocals there. Ohms is scratching both itches. So excited for the album. Aaaarrrgghhh.

In the mean time I'm enjoying watching it make people's faces light up in reaction videos on YouTube  ;D

For anyone interested, today's been exactly 22 years since they played that one epic set at Bizarre Festival 1998.

In two (more) hours, I'll be streaming both 98 and 2000 Bizarre Festival sets on DeftonesLive, it'll be at this link

It won't be a huge upgrade from what's on YouTube, still an upgrade. It'll definitely be the best quality at hands, as we always try to provide.

The riff Abe leaked during his live session seemed pretty iconic (it's certainly been stuck in my head). That has single potential. But really it depends on what the rest of the album has to offer-- which most of us do not know.

From the looks at just the song titles: Urantia, Ceremony, This Link Is Dead maybe? Those all seem like "single" titles, I guess.

Also, The Spell Of Mathematics is such an interesting title. It already sounds like a deeper cut that I'd obsess over.

Radiant City reminds me of Cloud City off Hum's latest album. That'd be cool if it had the same vibe-- an odd time groove for 7 minutes.

I was so worried about Steph and the 9 string.. just didnít want to hear chugga for the whole record. Not that the last 3 have been only that but I just havenít been as impressed with him since we lost Chi. I love his playing on Ohms. Itís an upbeat jam. Good for Steph. 😎🙌🏻

So some people heard 6 songs and I believe Ohms would be the 7th? So theoretically youíve only got 3, maybe 4 songs you havenít heard. Without spoiling anything since I know we arenít about that here. Have you heard enough yet to say the songs are better overall than Gore? Equal? Worse? Or canít say since they havenít been heard in context and youíre missing a few? I just want this album to be worth the wait! Itís been so long. At least for me it has been.

He seems to really enjoy the return of Terry Date's production. It'd be interesting for him to flip on his opinion on current Deftones with the new album. I guess we'll see...

Although of course the only important thing is if you yourself like it. It's just cool to see Deftones coming back big time from Gore, both from the fans and the critics like Fantano.

Yeah of course, I'd made up my mind already on liking Ohms but I'm a big music fan when it comes to a range of genres and a massive youtube consumer so obviously I dig his stuff, thought it was cool to see him high on my favourite band.  The Date production really is just great so far. Plus there was like a whole page of fantano memes in the ohms pre release thread so thought it could do a mention here haha.

Also a fan of his content. He mentioned in his "weekly track roundup" that he finds the Sergio-era albums to be over-produced. I don't necessarily agree, but he has a thing for more raw production when it comes to heavier music (I'm typically on that side, too). I totally agree with you on the production-- Date really is a 6th member of the band.

Agreed. It's always like 3+am my time. I wake up and see the alert the next day like F*Ck! I've been tuning in since he started like 7-8 years ago. Now I barely catch the sessions.
While I have serious FOMO ( and rightly so ) part of me is kind of glad I'll likely get to hear the full album on virgin ears.

My bad, I'm just coming back to SL for the first time in a while, didn't realize he was so controversial around here. He's pretty well known, probably the best known music critic on YouTube, but he's just another critic.

Post by: Vesanic on Aug 24, 2020, 03:11 PM
He must be either incredibly hated amongst the Deftones community or worshiped.

His opinions kind of seem to vary when it comes to Deftones.

When he reviewed Koi No Yokan, he said White Pony was that awesome album that every next releease was going to be compared to. He said the S/T lacked in melody and agreed on it not living up to White Pony for more reasons than just "It's not White Pony". He thought SNW was a bounce back in quality but DE was the album the S/T should have been. He said KNY had an air of deja-vu compared to DE, that What Happened To You? was underwhelming compared to their other closing tracks (I really couldn't agree more) and while he liked a few things, it felt like the band was playing it safe to him. That whole review was pretty laid back though and he didn't sound harsh.

Then came Gore. It's funny cause I agree on most of what he said about it (except about Acid Hologram) but still thought he sounded very harsh about it, went on to say it was better than DE, which he couldn't stand and was an album with a sound that was interesting a decade before it was released, and he also said he didn't care much about Adrenaline. About Gore he heavily criticised the production, the lack of compositional quality, and joined the overall review to his KNY saying that Chino played it safe vocally like they played it safe on KNY and DE. But again he came off very blunt about it and a lot of fans didn't like it.

He hasn't said anything about Around the Fur (which in my opinion is the best Deftones album), I'd imagine he doesn't care much about it just like he doesn't Adrenaline.

About 2003, I had the chance to discuss that recently on the Musically Meditated podcast. I hated the Wembley 2003 performance when I first watched it. It threw me off, I didn't like how Chino replaced the high notes on Digital Bath with those inhales, lots of things felt odd. I just didn't know any better at the time, I was a noob when it came to this band.

Today Wembley is my favorite Deftones recording. This whole era, specifically the second half of the year, has their most crafted performances (lightnings, transitions, etc.), and the performances were so very intense. There's this one particular performance of Digital Bath, in Montreal, where Chino pulls off the notes in a very different manner, I don't think he even did it out of this show. Very raw and powerful stuff.

And it's special because you know these raw performances happened because of the inner turmoil. I wouldn't want them to go through that again. But did it pay off musically!

Man I canít stop listening to Ohms. Itís just a solid, straightforward and concise Deftones track. And itís been a long since a deftones video actually makes me love the song even more. So many of the black and white shots of the band would make great posters - especially the shot of Frank. Cannot contain my excitement for this album!

Post by: Draken on Aug 24, 2020, 07:59 PM
Agree, that era was like nothing they ever did again. I saw them perform when they were touring with Poison the Well and Denali. Watching the two opening acts the concert was amazing, but when Deftones came on stage the energy completely shifted. They opened with Hexagram and the performance/presentation was the rawest I've ever seen them put on. Fast forward to the BlackDiamondSkye tour and they're playing this huge open venue and it's just not the same. Though 2009 era was Chino at his best since a very long time. The days of them playing small music halls are virtually over but I still can't wait to seem them tour on this new album.

Going through their catalog and Riviere is a monster of a song. It might be one of their best. Huge sounds, Chino on point vocally, with beautiful bass lines throughout from Chi. I can't seem to play it loud enough. I love SNW as it is, but if all that ever came out from that time period were Riviere I don't think I would complain.

Yeah Riviere is a masterpiece. For me whole SNW is the top tier of their catalogue - combat, beware, rapture, cherry waves, kimdracula, riviere. These songs basically combine everything what I love this band for. Sadly most of the fans won't agree with me. I hope Ohms will let me feel the same thing...

Penicks isn't really a fan of the post SNW records, same with Ves. I kind of like that there are people on this forum that go against the grain like that, even though most fans - including me - would disagree (I think DE and KNY are brilliant records). And of course there's a special love for the self-titled which I think is a top three Deftones album.
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: Inkblades on Aug 24, 2020, 09:14 PM
SNW vs. DE is a hard one to compare and I always bounce back and forth between which one is better. SNW has more experimental, stand-out songs, but DE is more cohesive, has more consistent production and Chino sounds like Chino instead of Cartman when he screams.

Post by: Draken on Aug 24, 2020, 09:18 PM
It's really interesting how divided Deftones fans are on their favorite albums, I'm not sure many other bands have that effect. Their fanbase is so diverse with many different type of people from different age ranges/musical tastes/backgrounds. You got hip hop heads, metal heads, indie hipsters, etc. etc. etc.

I could never fathom how anyone can feel that SNW or Gore was Deftones "best", but hey, to each their own. It's very subjective. Some folks are going to inevitably hate this new record while other will worship it. I've said it before but my favorite album is S/T but i think they did their technically best work on WP. Couldn't agree more about the above statement ^ on how their evolution is evident in their first four records. After that, idk what happened but maybe they got burned out. I mean, it's amazing they went as long as they have and still stayed fairly consistent. How many 90s bands can say they only had one or two stinkers in their whole discography and still have fans anxiously anticipating their ninth record?

I was just talking about this the other day with someone, how the psychology of Deftones fans (and music in general) would be an interesting topic to dive into if you're studying psychology. I think musical taste has a lot to do with several factors, the most important ones being: 1) personal preference 2) when/how you experienced it and 3) personal life experiences tied to the music. Those 3 things have great impact on how you love the music. For me, my personal preference usually tends to lean towards sounds from their earlier records but also my life experiences are tied to these as well and the timing of when/how I heard them are also affected. Some of my earliest (both best and worst relationships) were made during their earlier work, virginity was lost, and several new experiences  accompanied by a Deftones soundscape. I'll always regard the first 4 as the absolute best but it doesn't mean I'm shut off from accepting the new sounds Deftones has to offer.

Also, Gore and SNW are just not their best lol. Fight me

I think it's because they picked up a lot of new, younger fans with DE and KNY, so it makes sense that those fans would have those as their favorites while the older fans would be attached to the older stuff.
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: Iwazaru on Aug 24, 2020, 09:24 PM
My main issue with the 2010's albums is the production. DE and Koi are produced by Nick Raskulinecz who is the Napoleon of saturation and Gore, was such a fuck up sound quality-wise it's almost sabotage. At the very least I can rest easy with Ohms knowing Terry Date is back.

Music wise, I pretty much love every album for what each has to offer and bring something new. Does Gore compete with an album like WP? Never by any shot, but they'll never ever do an album as brilliant and mezmerizing as WP. For a band, an album like this is a once-in-a-lifetime success. And I still love Gore except for a few songs that just don't ring any bells with me.
The band is way past its prime, but they still have some inspiration to put into new releases so I think it's good enough.

Maybe they are just not interested in making the music you expect them to make. I wouldn't put that on the bands fault. you're just one fan, same for anyone else here. Gotta take what they give you and accept it or just move on, because that's who they are now and what they want to release. Doesn't make them bad albums, though Gore has arguably bad production.

The mix on Gore is bad, but it's still easily a more cohesive album than SNW. SNW from song to song sounds borderline schizophrenic to me. Also Beware has worse production than any song on Gore - fight me.
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: Draken on Aug 24, 2020, 09:28 PM
Absolutely, again this goes back to the diversity of fans (amazing a 90s band not only stayed relevant but became more so over time by their evolution) and personal preference/life experiences. Some folks found their first serious relationship listening to SNW (or pick any album) they learned to drive, etc. I remember driving until I literally got lost and just found my way back to a major highway to get home, back before GPS, Google Maps. I was listening to Deftones while I learned to drive.

You're not wrong. Beware is like the black sheep production wise... It's way lower in volume, and pretty much everything else...

Let's not forget that most of the band didn't get much of a say in what happened to that album as it was mostly Shaun Lopez and Chino working on it

I enjoyed DE, although not at first. It's Deftones more glossy, 'pretty' records but overall it's a good record. They wrote it in like 4 months, same as ATF. My favorite Sergio record.

I think Deftones can still produce that one AMAZING record. It might not be popular opinion but one of my favorite Cure records is Self Titled... their twelfth record.
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: Inkblades on Aug 24, 2020, 09:42 PM
I'm probably biased about Beware because I heard the song live first and it blew me the fuck away. I thought it was one of the best songs they had ever written and it probably is. But then I heard the album version and Chino's voice just sounded so compressed and Frank's synths were gone. My expectations were too high for that one, maybe.

I try and let go of album mixes these days as I have a tendency to focus on it too much and it ruins the enjoyment for me. Even with Ohms I started off by thinking the snare could be louder for my tastes but then had to stop myself, as I'll always have a love for 90s style mega loud snares which was 20+ years ago.

I suppose that I'll never be able to listen to an album without a preference here & there but it was getting ridiculous. I'll now just tinker with an EQ a bit and I'm happy.

I try and let go of album mixes these days as I have a tendency to focus on it too much and it ruins the enjoyment for me. Even with Ohms I started off by thinking the snare could be louder for my tastes but then had to stop myself as I'll always have a love for 90s style mega loud snares.

I suppose that I'll never be able to listen to an album without a preference here & there but it was getting ridiculous. I'll now just tinker with an EQ a bit and I'm happy.

I'm a sucker for loud snares also

It would be good in the future if Gore got a re-master & new mix, ideally by Terry Date

I'm still very confused about the mix on Gore. I can't believe the band listened to it and were like: Yes, thats the sound we want to go with this time.

The mix on Gore is horrendous, maybe that style of production works for other bands but not Deftones. When Chino stated he was ripping off Morrissey's "Elvis-y delay" on his vocals I thought it sounded like it might be cool, but then when i heard the record it most definitely did not serve it well. Made his vocals sound tinny and unbearable imo.

Gore was pushed back because they were unhappy with the mix and they tried different versions, I think. At a certain point it probably became "well, we have to put the album out soon" so they just went with it.

About 2003, I had the chance to discuss that recently on the Musically Meditated podcast. I hated the Wembley 2003 performance when I first watched it. It threw me off, I didn't like how Chino replaced the high notes on Digital Bath with those inhales, lots of things felt odd. I just didn't know any better at the time, I was a noob when it came to this band.

Today Wembley is my favorite Deftones recording. This whole era, specifically the second half of the year, has their most crafted performances (lightnings, transitions, etc.), and the performances were so very intense. There's this one particular performance of Digital Bath, in Montreal, where Chino pulls off the notes in a very different manner, I don't think he even did it out of this show. Very raw and powerful stuff.

And it's special because you know these raw performances happened because of the inner turmoil. I wouldn't want them to go through that again. But did it pay off musically!

That Montreal DB is my favorite of all Time V!!! Itís slower paced and absolutely brutal.

Yeah Riviere is a masterpiece. For me whole SNW is the top tier of their catalogue - combat, beware, rapture, cherry waves, kimdracula, riviere. These songs basically combine everything what I love this band for. Sadly most of the fans won't agree with me. I hope Ohms will let me feel the same thing...
FWIW I 100% agree with you. Those tracks hit me hard at my core. I am very optimistic about ohms delivering similar.

From the hype I got from the new song, I listened to Gore again, and I'm kind of worried because I really don't enjoy that album. I don't know if it's mostly because of the production, but a lot of these songs I'm tempted to just skip. Finger crossed I guess

Penicks isn't really a fan of the post SNW records, same with Ves. I kind of like that there are people on this forum that go against the grain like that, even though most fans - including me - would disagree (I think DE and KNY are brilliant records). And of course there's a special love for the self-titled which I think is a top three Deftones album.
i kind of appreciate the fans like them more than i used to as well. i don't think they're saying the other albums sucked either, just that they're not hitting them the same way. i respect that. luckily i really like/love all the albums, but certainly have an order for them. i acutally think Crosses is probably the 3rd best album Chino's made(ATF and WP 1st and 2nd). doubt many people agree. everyone's opinion is right to them, not really a big deal

if i had to rank Chino's discography

1. Around the Fur
2. White Pony
3. Crosses
4. Diamond eyes
5. Adrenaline (i started with adrenaline, in late 1995, i don't care if Chino isn't crazy about it)
6. Like Linus (yea i count like linus 12 tracks i put on a cd, lol)
7. Palms
8. s/t
9. Gore
10. Team Sleep (including the 2002 demos)
11. Saturday night wrist
12. Koi no yokan (something had to be last, but i'm a diehard and really like this album a lot. all of them)

still my fav band for sure. 20-25 years ago i used to listen to them almost daily, but the past 15 years or so i only listen to deftones  a few times a year, kinda keeps it all very fresh, and more exciting to hear, cause i don't over play them

Going through their catalog and Riviere is a monster of a song. It might be one of their best. Huge sounds, Chino on point vocally, with beautiful bass lines throughout from Chi. I can't seem to play it loud enough. I love SNW as it is, but if all that ever came out from that time period were Riviere I don't think I would complain.
yes, Riviere would be my favorite from SNW as well

i dont get it either, the louder it's played, the worse it sounds. i like the songs, but that mix is rough. i tried to jam "doomed user" loud as hell one time in the car, and it just sounded bad, and i had to turn it down a bit. and yea "Beware" might be even worse sounding mix wise

Quick write-up:

I actually like Saturday Night Wrist, quite a lot. I bought it in 2007 after catching the Hole in the Earth promo clip on YouTube. I remember thinking that was the most directly emotional Chino had sounded (from the little I knew about) if that makes sense, and the composition sounded very fresh, I loved Frank's ambient and the outro breakdown hit me deep.

The Konami Code is one of the Deftones songs I've overplayed to death (and there aren't as many as you'd think for someone like me). Something about it was different while still sounding very Deftones. Some kind of peaceful innocence mixed with the surrounding melancholy, I don't really have the words. I even remember trying to figure out piano at the time, and I had come up with my own version of the song. No credit to me obviously, it sounded beautiful on piano.

And for as disjointed as the band was and how pieced together to writing process was, I still don't feel the album is as disjointed as many people think. There's only one point in the sequence where I'm thrown off, is the Konami Code into Xerces. I like both tracks (though Xerces may be my least favorite SNW song), but the lack of transition there doesn't work for me. You'd think it's a very Deftones move to go like this, I just don't think it worked that well in that case. And then going into Rats! after that is debatable too. I do like Rats! though. I remember someone on here criticising the very simple lyricism, but the feeling of anger came out really well and sincere. It's definitely in their few all-time heaviest cuts and it didn't feel heavy for the sake of being heavy. That's something for a metal band imo. Hell, does anyone remember another instance of Deftones playing fucking death metal? Someone said Gore felt more cohevise than SNW... I disagree.

Hell, Pink Cellphone used to be the running gag of this forum. I actually did like Pink Cellphone. I thought, for as random as it sounded, it really fitted Saturday Night Wrist. I still think stuff like that and The Konami Code could be played live with success if done correctly.

Kimdracula still is one of my favorite songs. This texture, are you kidding me? It's one of those few songs where you know you can't put this band in a box no matter how hard you try.

Combat comes as a personal preference since I witnessed first hands the only time they pulled it off in front of an audience. I liked it a lot when I first heard it too.

And Riviere. Fucking Riviere man. I didn't notice it on the first few listens, felt like that mandatory ballad by an otherwise heavy band, but holy shit. Those guitar chords hit right when they need to. Chino's vocals come off very sincere and almost fragile. Makes me tear up every time, I'm not ashamed. Absolutely my favorite SNW track and in my top 5 Deftones songs. I may or may not have played a tiny role in them starting playing it live during the KNY cycle, I'll never know.

My two main problems with Saturday Night Wrist are, for one, its touring cycle. I'll never blame a man for gaining weight, I'm not a fucking gossip magazine worker, and I can't be THAT shallow. But how they had all put on weight, especially Chino, was a sign that all those dark years had taken their toll. Stephen admitted, in an interview after the release of SNW, that Chino had a really hard time singing, and he felt very bad for him. It's not to say all the shows sucked, and none of them did from start to end, there was just this inconsistency. Most of the time (not all the time), they'd sound good for a minute and get tired the next minute, and you could hear it if you paid attention (which, as an off-the-record archivist, I did). Don't get me wrong: there are many great performances in the SNW cycle.

My second problem is knowing the potential that was wasted into this. We all know the production could have been a lot better and in fact, was going to be a lot better: they had fucking Bob Ezrin working with them. Sure enough a couple of you don't know, there's a bunch of demos they made with him, they're all available on YouTube. Had they gone through with him and completed these songs and come up with one decent sequence... this album was going to be on another level. We all know it. Stephen knew it at the time and was probably pissed over it.

I'll finish this very biased review with my favorite performance of Rats which, in my opinion, represents what I just said really well. Up until the first chorus, Chino is almost studio-like: the screams, the highs, the rasp, to the point it gives me the biggest chills. After that... it gets inconsistent. Again, don't twist my words. The rest of the band is top-notch through and through, but Deftones songs have always relied a lot on Chino. If he doesn't sound as good, the whole music takes the toll. Hope you get what I mean.

that's an awesome review Ves. SNW is my personal favorite, and while I love the clarity and sharpness of the Terry Date albums (S/T is my 2nd fave) I like the contrast it has with them. DE/KNY are great albums but for me they're polished in a way that kind of hides some of the nuance in their stuff tbh.

As far as production, song writing, performance, and overall style nothing will ever top White Pony.  Every second counts on that record, and every second is perfect.  There is not one single weak or boring moment.  A trip of a record, and in my opinion the greatest record I have ever heard in my life. 

If WP was the cool vision of the future, ST was the band's knucklehead past that was somehow released after its predecessor.  Much like the Beatles and Madonna, the band reinvented themselves yet again in an extremely interesting way.  Another record, where each song stands on its own yet all relate back to each other.  Their sound, look, and songwriting evolved in such a fundamental way.  Sometimes it's hard to believe it's the same band.

SNW is where they started repeating themselves a little bit, and it was a bit painful to watch.  There are some brilliant compositions on the record, like Kimdrac, Combat, and Beware, but there are some horrifying moments too like Rapture.  Xerces bores the shit outta me.  And I still shake my head every time I hear those four punchy notes from the main riff of HITE.  I personally appreciate Pink Cellphone except where the nonsense begins. 

DE was a phenomenal, hopeful, and unlikely return for the band.  Royal is truly their Phoenix rising.  I enjoy other tracks but do not appreciate in the same way as their previous works.  Maybe they lack a bit of depth or originality?  Some stuff sounds like an update of something from the past: Sextape / Digital Bath, Cmd/Ctrl / Rats, Beauty School / Minerva, etc.  There's also this weird thing in the songwriting where the verses are far catchier and memorable than the choruses - 976, Royal, and Cmd/Ctrl come to mind.  Also screaming "Guns! Razors! Knives!" never did much for me and just came off a little silly.

KNY sounds like it was recorded back-to-back with Diamond Eyes.  I struggle to enjoy much on this record.  Tempest and Rosemary are fine Deftones songs.  Leathers has one of the best pre/choruses ever written by the band, but the guitar work does not sound like Stef - it sounds like they hired some younger guy to write that riff, but it certainly kicks ass.  I still can't believe they titled a song "Romantic Dreams."

Gore is a bit forgettable overall.  Many complain about the mix/production, but to me it's the underlying songs and performances that are just middling.  I will say, though, Geo has a brilliant chorus.  Acid is trying hard to be interesting.  Hearts/Wires and Phantom Bride are also somewhat very strong songs. 

Honestly not feeling this new song at all.  It does nothing for me.  It sounds very safe.  And I'm really hoping the rest of the album fares better.

As far as pre-WP, I still cannot get over the riff and lyrics in BQAD.  Mascara is another one that showed Deftones were in a league of their own.  And on Adrenaline, Root is my jam <3

I listened to White Pony start to finish a few months ago for the anniversary... that record still sounds 20 years ahead of current time. So futuristic and creative. It will forever be their crown and jewel. I would just love to hear some new sounds on this record. This is my favorite band because they always push the envelope while still sounding like Deftones. I just have a feeling this will be the best record of the Sergio Era. I know they can still make a banging record. Ohms is a great start.


Still a little bummed itís the closer... wish they would have given us a different song first. But oh well. Great tunes ahead!

If WP was the cool vision of the future, ST was the band's knucklehead past that was somehow released after its predecessor.  Much like the Beatles and Madonna, the band reinvented themselves yet again in an extremely interesting way.  Another record, where each song stands on its own yet all relate back to each other.  Their sound, look, and songwriting evolved in such a fundamental way.  Sometimes it's hard to believe it's the same band.

SNW is where they started repeating themselves a little bit, and it was a bit painful to watch.  There are some brilliant compositions on the record, like Kimdrac, Combat, and Beware, but there are some horrifying moments too like Rapture.  Xerces bores the shit outta me.  And I still shake my head every time I hear those four punchy notes from the main riff of HITE.  I personally appreciate Pink Cellphone except where the nonsense begins. 

DE was a phenomenal, hopeful, and unlikely return for the band.  Royal is truly their Phoenix rising.  I enjoy other tracks but do not appreciate in the same way as their previous works.  Maybe they lack a bit of depth or originality?  Some stuff sounds like an update of something from the past: Sextape / Digital Bath, Cmd/Ctrl / Rats, Beauty School / Minerva, etc.  There's also this weird thing in the songwriting where the verses are far catchier and memorable than the choruses - 976, Royal, and Cmd/Ctrl come to mind.  Also screaming "Guns! Razors! Knives!" never did much for me and just came off a little silly.

KNY sounds like it was recorded back-to-back with Diamond Eyes.  I struggle to enjoy much on this record.  Tempest and Rosemary are fine Deftones songs.  Leathers has one of the best pre/choruses ever written by the band, but the guitar work does not sound like Stef - it sounds like they hired some younger guy to write that riff, but it certainly kicks ass.  I still can't believe they titled a song "Romantic Dreams."

Gore is a bit forgettable overall.  Many complain about the mix/production, but to me it's the underlying songs and performances that are just middling.  I will say, though, Geo has a brilliant chorus.  Acid is trying hard to be interesting.  Hearts/Wires and Phantom Bride are also somewhat very strong songs. 

Honestly not feeling this new song at all.  It does nothing for me.  It sounds very safe.  And I'm really hoping the rest of the album fares better.

As far as pre-WP, I still cannot get over the riff and lyrics in BQAD.  Mascara is another one that showed Deftones were in a league of their own.  And on Adrenaline, Root is my jam <3

I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you, your expectations seem way too high and sound super picky. After 25+ years a band is bound to have songs that reminds of previous ones.

Maybe not a lot of people (that's debatable), I think it would though. Lots of people out there like to have that one pre-release leak, there's some kind of sentimental value to it, like a special edition.

I think there were lots of lessons to learn. Deftones have a long history of having their stuff leaked, and so much has leaked since the internet became a thing. Tool got their album leaked a couple of days prior to the release, same for Glassjaw. I would be surprised if Ohms didn't leak before a "Friday leak" from NZ. But it does seem like they got their stuff on check this time around, I'm keeping positive.

In response to mandalay, I just wanted to second Geometric Headdress having a fantastic chorus. The rest of the song isnít as fantastic by comparison, though I still like it. But that chorus always felt like signature Deftones to me. I specifically like when they extend it by a few measures at the end and Chino sings ďNow relate like I relateĒ. The high intensity way they close out the song is pretty great too.

To be honest, if the album leaked even a few days before release Iíd probably still listen to it haha. I know that probably bothers a lot of the anti-leak crowd, but whatever.

Speaking of Glassjaw, if I remember correctly, werenít you doing some archiving of Glassjaw shows at some point Ves?

I did. It's called Glassjaw.info, it's only on YouTube. It was in reference to the follow-up forum to Glassjaw.net, but that new forum ended up being spammed to death by ad bots.

I had a different approach where I archived every single video on YouTube in a chronology, not just my uploads like I do for Deftones. The reason is Glassjaw has a lot less material on YouTube.

I didn't follow up after 2017 however. I've uploaded a couple of shows myself here and there, and I recorded them a couple of times. I'll probably get back to it at some point but Glassjaw is a different thing. The Pukkelpop proshot makes up for it, such a brilliant recording.

It's definitely the best and most "deftones sounding" part of the album. But the song is kind of all over the place beside that imo.

From the 2000 one, only a couple in audio. From the 2006, I uploaded an audio one, from Detroit, and added the YouTube clips to it. I wish I had more, that tour is my favorite, Daryl was a vocal beast!

Itís been going on for weeks now, since way before that track title was officially announced. It started happening only a day or so after someone plugged the leaked track into that AHA song identifier thing and was given Urantia as the title. So it was either just a way of teasing the rabid fans as a ďwe know that you knowĒ sort of a thing, or Chuck just liked the title and thought nobody would really think twice about it. Idk, either way I donít think thereís much to look into there.

I'm a sucker for an extended chorus, or a first chorus that never real takes off and then explodes/expands the second time!  Deftones have truly mastered this in many of their songs.

Maybe! Honestly, I thought it was going to be the first single, but they threw me a curveball with Ohms. Urantia is the only leak Iíve heard, and I can definitely say it would make for a good single. Itís just got that classic Deftones feel to it, at least to my ears.

Totally, I completely agree. Rosemary is perhaps my favorite example, with the whole ďwe play in dreamsĒ extended chorus. I also love it in Battle-Axe with the ďWell Iíd love to think you will someday feel the sameď part

It just tells you to listen to the song on spotify. Pretty straight forward.

Quick write-up:

I actually like Saturday Night Wrist, quite a lot. I bought it in 2007 after catching the Hole in the Earth promo clip on YouTube. I remember thinking that was the most directly emotional Chino had sounded (from the little I knew about) if that makes sense, and the composition sounded very fresh, I loved Frank's ambient and the outro breakdown hit me deep.

The Konami Code is one of the Deftones songs I've overplayed to death (and there aren't as many as you'd think for someone like me). Something about it was different while still sounding very Deftones. Some kind of peaceful innocence mixed with the surrounding melancholy, I don't really have the words. I even remember trying to figure out piano at the time, and I had come up with my own version of the song. No credit to me obviously, it sounded beautiful on piano.

And for as disjointed as the band was and how pieced together to writing process was, I still don't feel the album is as disjointed as many people think. There's only one point in the sequence where I'm thrown off, is the Konami Code into Xerces. I like both tracks (though Xerces may be my least favorite SNW song), but the lack of transition there doesn't work for me. You'd think it's a very Deftones move to go like this, I just don't think it worked that well in that case. And then going into Rats! after that is debatable too. I do like Rats! though. I remember someone on here criticising the very simple lyricism, but the feeling of anger came out really well and sincere. It's definitely in their few all-time heaviest cuts and it didn't feel heavy for the sake of being heavy. That's something for a metal band imo. Hell, does anyone remember another instance of Deftones playing fucking death metal? Someone said Gore felt more cohevise than SNW... I disagree.

Hell, Pink Cellphone used to be the running gag of this forum. I actually did like Pink Cellphone. I thought, for as random as it sounded, it really fitted Saturday Night Wrist. I still think stuff like that and The Konami Code could be played live with success if done correctly.

Kimdracula still is one of my favorite songs. This texture, are you kidding me? It's one of those few songs where you know you can't put this band in a box no matter how hard you try.

Combat comes as a personal preference since I witnessed first hands the only time they pulled it off in front of an audience. I liked it a lot when I first heard it too.

And Riviere. Fucking Riviere man. I didn't notice it on the first few listens, felt like that mandatory ballad by an otherwise heavy band, but holy shit. Those guitar chords hit right when they need to. Chino's vocals come off very sincere and almost fragile. Makes me tear up every time, I'm not ashamed. Absolutely my favorite SNW track and in my top 5 Deftones songs. I may or may not have played a tiny role in them starting playing it live during the KNY cycle, I'll never know.

My two main problems with Saturday Night Wrist are, for one, its touring cycle. I'll never blame a man for gaining weight, I'm not a fucking gossip magazine worker, and I can't be THAT shallow. But how they had all put on weight, especially Chino, was a sign that all those dark years had taken their toll. Stephen admitted, in an interview after the release of SNW, that Chino had a really hard time singing, and he felt very bad for him. It's not to say all the shows sucked, and none of them did from start to end, there was just this inconsistency. Most of the time (not all the time), they'd sound good for a minute and get tired the next minute, and you could hear it if you paid attention (which, as an off-the-record archivist, I did). Don't get me wrong: there are many great performances in the SNW cycle.

My second problem is knowing the potential that was wasted into this. We all know the production could have been a lot better and in fact, was going to be a lot better: they had fucking Bob Ezrin working with them. Sure enough a couple of you don't know, there's a bunch of demos they made with him, they're all available on YouTube. Had they gone through with him and completed these songs and come up with one decent sequence... this album was going to be on another level. We all know it. Stephen knew it at the time and was probably pissed over it.

I'll finish this very biased review with my favorite performance of Rats which, in my opinion, represents what I just said really well. Up until the first chorus, Chino is almost studio-like: the screams, the highs, the rasp, to the point it gives me the biggest chills. After that... it gets inconsistent. Again, don't twist my words. The rest of the band is top-notch through and through, but Deftones songs have always relied a lot on Chino. If he doesn't sound as good, the whole music takes the toll. Hope you get what I mean.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXquohLxF3Q

I enjoyed reading this write up a lot and I agree with most of it ("Xerces" is actually one of my favorite Deftones songs ever), but as far as the demos go, I still don't understand why they didn't include "Finger of Death" on the album. I've heard a live version on Youtube with vocals in it and man, that song just would have been such a killer Deftones classic.

Have been listening to the single a lot since release and still really like it, it's got enough different passages that it doesn't get too repetitive for me and that Terry Date production just makes these guys shine, he's a fucking wizard at capturing songs in a way where everything is heard but it's still balanced.

Can't believe we are less than a month away! I'm ready for next weekend so this place picks up when this new single drops. Going to be working a lot in the meantime, should help the time go by faster. I just got a $4 an hour raise so that's great. Just an awesome month all around. I hope all is well with everyone around here too. Nothing can fix this terrible year, but a new Deftones album it's definitely going to be Soup for the Soul.

cool vocal removal for Ohms.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7-hjvnYVXw

Itís a really good vocal removal! Iíve just pushed to get hexagram instrumental (tried a lot of vocal removers with that song, but all lack in the verses and sounded weird and ďunderwaterĒ, but I have a good feeling on this one)

That's awesome, happy for you. The album releases on my birthday so life couldn't be better. Been craving some new music lately to lift my spirits, so a new Deftones record is for sure going to feed this weary soul.

Cheers!

I think its about humanty/evolution/tech and its relation with nature.

The man who walks within the ruins would represent humanity and the long red cape lady represents mother nature.At the end of the video they have a  reconciliation.

Its just my opinion.

Itís not really their style, but I thought they might release a stand-alone single after the album and put proceeds towards the road crew affected by Covid. They seem pretty bummed out that they canít tour, particularly from some of the comments Abe had made on the Instagram live stream.

I think we were expecting 09/04 but I'm thinking the following week now. No insider info or anything to base that on, merely a feeling as there's been no official announcement or build to it being this Friday, and they could just drop it without fanfare, but that's a big contrast to the lead up to the album reveal.

Miraculously, I've remained unspoiled, apart from the single, during this album's build so far and haven't caved in and listened to any of those low quality recordings and I'm really appreciating the anticipation which is certainly novel.

I plan on holding out as well. I still havenít listened to the single. Either way, the new Manson album is coming out soon so thatíll hold me over until then.

I'm not listening to anything unless it's officially released. I've heard Ohms, the little snippet that Abe played on his IG, and then a 30 sec clip of a bad recording of another (i'm not sure if it was the same as what Abe played). The album comes out on my birthday so there's no way I'm ruining that for myself, but hell yeah if they officially release another single I'm bumping that shit.

You're obviously new here. That has been ruled out for weeks. That "leak" was not a leak. It was supposed to be a listening session bonded by trust. Sadly, things didn't go as planned.

We're trying to keep the anticipation where it should be rather than helping a debate over shitty rips.

It's cool that Ohms has over 2kk views on YT already. In next few days will beat P/T score for sure.

I'm wondering if this new record will be as popular as Diamond Eyes was (5 vidoes from their top 10 most-viewed on YT are from DE - it must mean something, right?).

You also said the album art has nothing to do with eyes, and lo and behold, the cover is nothing but a pair of eyes. So far the only predictions you were actually right about was the album would be released on 9/25, which was pretty self-evident by the website url, and the fact that a single would drop on 8/21, which while not entirely evident, I think most of us already assumed something would be dropping by then what with the spelling out of the album title through Spotify. You could be right about a single dropping this Friday, but then again itís nearly a 50/50 chance since something is more than likely dropping either this Friday or next.

Post by: Inkblades on Sep 01, 2020, 12:39 AM
Genesis dropping a mere two weeks after Ohms? I really doubt it. Ohms is the first single so they probably want it to "breathe" a little bit before they drop another one, especially if they have another crazy video lined up. I'm thinking 9/11 too, although I guess it doesn't have to necessarily drop on a Friday. Looking at some of their other single rollouts, there actually wasn't too much of a wait between Leathers and Tempest, but it was still more than two weeks.

Also, the Ohms video now has close to 2.2 million views on Youtube in ten days. Loving this success they are seeing.

Dont know why Stef use a 9 strings on this one tho.

In comparison, the Manson's album has leaked already, the release is scheduled for 9/11. I hope Ohms doesn't follow the same fate.

I imagine that reviews of Ohms will start to arrive fairly soon. Not that my listening pleasure is dependent upon other views but I'm always particularly interested in seeing how the boys fare with the critics, especially with more mainstream publications. Also whets the appetite for the album's release somewhat.

He uses a 9 string in the video, doesn't necessarily means that's what he used to record it. Probably just showing off.
And Chino said it was the first thing written for the album, 3 years ago, which is before the instagram post on his 9 strings guitar.
Anyway, it's not because you have X amount of strings that you need to use them all in all songs.

From what I understand, Stephen upgrades all his guitars to whatever the number of strings he currently writes in no matter what. This way he's not constantly shifting neck sizes for songs live (say to 6 strings for Adrenaline, ATF, and WP and 7/8 for the others) and can just get used to one size. It's irrelevant to him what strings he uses to play a song. He's going to use the guitar size he's currently used to.

Probably. Has there ever been a Deftones album that hasn't leaked in this age? It's funny how some albums stay protected while others don't. Nas' latest album (that came out the same day as Ohms) didn't leak, and I think pop stars like Beyonce or Taylor Swift also have good security and don't leak. Maybe because some are surprise releases or only have a week of promotion, like in Nas' case?

A lot of the surprise albums just come out with no notice, so it's easier to keep them from leaking, which is probably why the Nas album didn't leak early, especially now that they can do it digitally and still do massive numbers.

Does he still switch guitar sizes live? I was under the impression that he decided to just get used to one neck size and learn to play the songs with them. That said, I haven't played a 7-string in probably a decade and never touched an 8 or 9 so I don't know if it's significantly different switching between those three than say a 9 down to a 6.

Regardless of a leak happening or not, I'm pretty glad it still hasn't considering the hype behind it. At this point, if it does happen, it'll either come from a journalist or someone working on the pressing, as I believe it usually does.

2nd Single on Friday. I know because I just know.

:) incorrect.

You know something don't you.
He posted something a while back saying that he had a reputable tip about when the single would drop, but later edited the post to leave out the juicy details. Without just outright saying the date, letís just say it maybe possibly might not be dropping on either 9/4 or 9/11.

Wouldn't that be kinda weird to drop a single just one week before the  whole record is out ?

Damn, where is TokyoDrifter when we need him

Yep. It's not coming this week or next. Basically confirmed from the same place that the song titles came from.

Before the dates just said "Unknown". I checked late sunday night/early monday morning and it showed the confirmed date.

I'm assuming the release date is to hype up the week before release and if there's a leak, hope it'll distract people from it?

Itís not entirely unheard of for a band to drop a single a week before album release, lots of bands do it. That being said, usually when I see that happen, it tends to be a third single or something.

They did it with Hearts/Wires, which dropped four days before Gore's release.

So obviously it's September 18th. It probably wasnt supposed to be known yet, but apparently the music recognition site we used to identify the leaks, let this one out a little early.

What if homeboy from the B-Real podcast is actually mistaken thinking Genesis is the next single and itís actually the third single? What if thatdeftkid is actually right about a single dropping this Friday? sharinglungs, have you tried plugging in any other leaks into AHA to see if they come up with an earlier date?

Yeah, but hypothetically if Genesis is actually the third single, then itís possible Urantia could be the 2nd single and drop this Friday after all. Once again, this is just me spitballing ideas based on the notion that a single dropped a week before release tends to be a third single. Iím not necessarily giving thatdeftkidís predictions any credence since they were wrong about other things too such as the album art. I guess Iím just entertaining the possibility that there could be a single in between Ohms and Genesis

Shit. In that case, I think itís safe to assume for now that that Genesis is the only other single

Every 2 weeks before release would be a good release schedule for singles. It allows for 3, and lots of time to talk about the songs... but I don't think it's gonna happen.. I wish it would though.

That was exactly what I was thinking, it seems like a nice and tidy way of slowly trickling things out, and mirrors what I see lots of other bands doing. But as we all know, Deftones has their own way of doing things that are (sometimes infuriatingly) not like other bands. At this point, Iím not expecting anything until 9/25.

And yeah Roidragee, I considered the possibility that much like Ohms, they might use another non-leaked song as a single. If thatís the case, I think itís clever of Chino to not have broadcasted the songs he knew would be singles

Genesis, Ceremony, Error(15 seconds), This link is dead(30 seconds?), The Spell of Mathematics, Urantia,  Pompeji(1:27), Headless(30 seconds).. that's all thats out there, I don't think anyone passed around any part of the song Ohms.

I'm probably biased about Beware because I heard the song live first and it blew me the fuck away. I thought it was one of the best songs they had ever written and it probably is. But then I heard the album version and Chino's voice just sounded so compressed and Frank's synths were gone. My expectations were too high for that one, maybe.

I agree with you 100%. I remember listening to a different version of the song, really raw and dirty, Frank really present on it. That mp3 is one of my fav Deftones songs, ever. When I first heard Beware in Sao Paulo back in 07, that shit got me so pumped and crazy that I fell in love with it on the spot (look it up on youtube, ITS INSANE). The live version is way better than the version that ended up on the record, imho. I hate that one. Makes the song no justice.

I'm sure the music press will have had it for a few weeks already. But, yes, reviews from next week I'd say.

I think this album will go the distance and appear a day or two before it's official release.

I typed the Spanish review into Google Translate:

"It is very curious what happens with Deftones. To which it is confirmed that the band is starting to work on a new album, everyone begins to speculate about what it will sound like, when, in reality, we all know the answer: Deftones. Ohms is no exception.

To be a band with that aura of groundbreaking and innovative within metal, a reputation that without a doubt they earned over everything 20 years ago with White Pony, their successive works have offered rather few surprises. But we don't seem to learn, and the anticipation in the months leading up to the release of his ninth album has been brutal, largely motivated by Terry Date's return to production at the helm of 17 years. And that, the beginning of Genesis, with those keyboards and some guitar notes, which seem like a tribute to Pink Floyd's Shine On You Crazy Diamond, make us think that maybe this time those from Sacramento are going to offer us something different, but the illusion lasts only 50 seconds; what it takes the cavalry to enter the trot with a riff by Stephen Carpenter and Chino Moreno alternating shouts with their characteristic dragging melodies. The mastery of the group to play with different intensities is once again shown in all its glory on songs such as Urantia, Ceremony, Radiant City or Headless, with a central passage of the most beautiful. For its part, Error stands out for its energy and a catchier than average chorus, and Ohms for that screwed up and devastating riff. Date's hand is noticeable in a warmer and more organic sound in which each musician finds their space to breathe.

I think Frank Delgado has never had so much prominence, serving as an essential element in the transition between Pompeji and This Link Is Dead, or in the atmospheric and brilliant The Spell of Mathematics, and the Abe Cunningham drums also sound fantastic. If you have read this far, I suppose you have already deduced that Ohms is not a revolutionary work, but what I do assure you is that it is another great Deftones album."

Genesis is a trillion times better than they are making it sound.

Never hung out with them but had them stop a show for me. https://youtu.be/Vqn6EYL1k1Q.  1:02:20 during Lotion. (lost my glasses. lame. chino thought a girl i was with lost them. nope - it was me. he lets my fat ass sit on stage the rest of the show. roadie gave me beers to hang out on stage. 20 years ago, cut me some slack - I'm a changed man.)

P.S  - at 23:05 this show became my favorite performance of Change, ever. that scream is amazing.

Oh yeah, my original point:  I'm super psyched for this album, and I hope it doesn't leak at all. My two year old son gets down to Acid Hologram - proud Dad.

Cheers!

P.P.S - met them and brought this up during Diamond Eyes tour. No band member had any recollection. LOL.

Ohms is just a great rock song. It has a very Deftones feel to it. The type  of rock they create is becoming extremely rare anymore for me to discover. I honestly had to try to like gore so I was a little worried about the new album. If Terry produced gore I wonder what it would have been like I guess we will never know. I donít really get into vinyl but I want to support the band maybe I will just buy a
t-shirt and the cd even though the cd will probably just collect dust some where since I use Apple Music.

Sad but true :( I love that you guys like the song so much, I like the video and the artwork so far, and I've been listening to Koi No Yokan a lot lately. Still love em, so much history! Been lurkin since right before the SNW days, but that album was the album that pretty much (almost) killed my enthusiasm for their music. To me (!) the Crosses album is so much more interesting and cohesive to listen to than every album post the selftitled. Still love the band and some songs on every record (Beware <3, RiviŤre, Pink Cellphone FUCK THE HATERS, Poltergeist, Tempest <333, Rapture, (L)MIRL), but OHMS sounds like they just wrote a song. After the sixth time listening to it I couldn't stand it anymore, fucking broke my heart. It's just that Gore wasn't actually THAT bad, it could've been so great. Like.. y'know, an Brendan O'Brien album (Issues after Follow The Leader, A Crow Left Of The Murder after Morning View) after Koi No Yokan. Something that sounds.. organic. But jeez louise what a hot mess. But to me it still had some ideas. OHMS on the other hand sounds just like a template. Love the drums, but I just can't stand the repetitive structure they always seem to fall back to anymore.. :(

BUT no hate tho, still anticipate the release of the album :)

Go in with no expectations. If you build it up in your mind you will just end up being disappointed. I've learned that from past albums. Wait for the damn thing to come out, and go listen to some other music in the mean time. I like to listen to any non-heavy music, i.e. electronic, jazz, etc. like Deftones pre-show music to cleanse the palette.

 Iím really digging the single but Iím very disappointed with it being the album closer. Itís just not a closing song in my opinion. And their album closers are the best. They have pretty much and I favorite tracks on the last six records. I donít understand why they chose this song as the closer and why they chose to put it out first. It just doesnít make much sense to me.

Maybe my opinion will change when I listen to the record so Iím going to go into it with an open mind. Iím still very excited for this record.

Gore with Terry producing would have just sounded more crisp, and well produced. the song themselves would stay they same, since Terry only records them, and never tells them what to write. they do all their own writing

Itís funny that you say this, because I was just about to say this exact same thing. For example, I donít think Moana would be a good closer track when listening to it isolated from the rest of the album, but it really serves a purpose after Anniversary in the track listing. Anniversary is this very floaty atmospheric that makes for a good traditional close to the flow of the album, then Moana feels like an epilogue to bring up the energy of the album one last time and close things on more of a high note.

Yes yes yes. Their second album Into The Vanishing Light, despite not being instrumental, has some Deftones undertones here and there. I highly recommend the song Strange Graves in particular.

And hi! I've been lurking for a long time but I was a regular on a French Deftones forum (if I remember correctly) and on Glassjaw.net as well.  18 days to go!

I can't really recommend much heavy music because I don't listen to much other than my favorites which are obviously Deftones. I love old school shit I guess: Meshuggah, Failure, Hum, Tool, etc. The newest Idiot Pilot that came out of nowhere last year and the new Will Haven was ace.

Here's some downtempo shit to calm you down  ;D

Moon Diagrams - 2019 Trappy Bats mini LP is dope. It's the drummer for Deerhunter, another band you should check out. [edit: I just read that this album was recorded after a "reflective night in jail"]

and though I'm not huge King Krule fan I love his Archy Marshall album and this song from his new 2020 album.

I don't remember 30 second previews for Gore. Maybe there will be no Ohms previews either.

I remember couple of things before Gore release:

-> greGORErio - some funny guy who leaked interesting facts about the album ~2 months before the release date. No one belived him but all he said was correct;
-> it leaked just ~ 3-4 days before the official release (TokyoDrifer was chasing people to get a link)
-> SL community loved the production at the beginning :D
-> someone said H/T sounds like Pink Floyd lol
-> hype was bigger

I too remember greGORErio. He said something about Rubicon too I think? Maybe posted a picture of the vehicle? I donít remember 30 second clips for Gore. Maybe itís a thing of the past. I remember them for KNY. I kept playing the one for Gauze over and over. It was so different from everything on DE. Loved it. Im guessing we wonít get them for Ohms.

I remember previews for kny but not Gore. Also I feel like the hype for alms was bigger first but now it's really chilled out. I think people are just as hyped but they are a little cautious because of how divisive Gore sounded. All I know is that when ohms releases this place is going to go crazy. It's impossible to know what the critics will think but I'm almost certain this one is going to bring back a lot of the old fans. I cannot wait for that day :)

If you guys are looking for other things to listen to in the meantime, The Ocean's new album is also set to be released on 9/25/2020, same day as Ohms. They're an awesome prog/post-metal band from Germany. They're just tops, the bee's knees, the cat's meow, if you will. I think Deftones fans should enjoy them.

Here's a song from the upcoming album.

Glad you enjoyed it! Yeah I figured some had still not known about it yet. I was lucky enough to see it, I forgot how I found out but nevertheless it was a very pleasant surprise! Mammoth is just pure awesome.

Deerhunter live is amazing btw. I saw Bradford Cox sneaking in to put more of his artwork up for sale at the merch booth and I was like 10 feet away from him but unfortunately this girl grabbed him for a picture and then afterwards he ran off backstage. Moses Archuleta is amazing on drums, definitely check out Moon Diagrams.

Honestly don't care what critics say, I still enjoy watching Anthony's videos even though I rarely agree with him. I think the only album I love that he didn't completely shit on was Loveless. There's been many classic albums that were originally panned by critics, so it basically makes reviews purely entertainment for me.

Pretty sure they named the album and Frank Maddocks created the artwork. U think Chino asked him to make it like Humís cover? Doesnt sound right to me. I think its a coincidence like any cover art with a mammal fearured on it. Just my opinion maybe. I just think that would be a little too obvious and so so so lacking creativity which is part of the fun for us and i would think for the band also.

Chino looked up and chose the pony clip art for the cover. The logo itself wasn't even designed by them, they just paid for the rights, like the diamond eyes cover. He said it in interview.

Pretty sure Chino knew after the WP cover was done that it had some resemblance with the Hum cover, and it's alright....it's definetly a coincidence, but it  doesn't hurt to see it as a homage/influence thing too, whatever.

Ok fair enough doesnt hurt at all. It is one of the things I like most about them that they are not afraid to talk about or admit somebody being an influence on some thing so I could buy it I guess

When do you guys think we'll get the 30 second previews?

I don't remember 30 second previews for Gore. Maybe there will be no Ohms previews either.

I remember couple of things before Gore release:

-> greGORErio - some funny guy who leaked interesting facts about the album ~2 months before the release date. No one belived him but all he said was correct;
-> it leaked just ~ 3-4 days before the official release (TokyoDrifer was chasing people to get a link)
-> SL community loved the production at the beginning :D
-> someone said H/T sounds like Pink Floyd lol
-> hype was bigger

The only thing I remember about the days leading up to Gore was that there was a fake album leak from somewhere in Europe I think and my band's single at the time was randomly used for the title track lol

Same here. Curiousity/excitement got the best of me. I've never doubted Deftones as I love every single album, but I always get worried eventually they will write an album I don't jive with. I guess the silver lining of the leaks is that it reassured me I'm going to adore this album as well. It also gets me stoked for all the other fans because I'm almost certain this one is going to be universally adored by fans new and old alike.

I can't stress this enough. I listened to the leaks and I wish I hadn't. I know I'm going to buy it anyway, that feels like a bad excuse I'm giving to myself though.

This album is going to be up there. Don't ruin that experience with those leaks, you really don't want to do that.

Picture yourself trying to take a peak at the Christmas gift the night before, when everyone's asleep. I never did that myself but I can understand how that would ruin the fun for one in the long haul.

The stuff will still be appreciated, but it'll kill the maximum buzz you could have got if you had stuck tight.

I dont even get THAT hyped anymore. Does that mean I dont love them? No, I still do, but since S/T was released, I always got myself thinking/acting like some of you, so excited and then the record releases and Im like?: "Thats it?". Nowdays, I just spend my time waiting for a new record listening to some other stuff, and definitely avoid reading/listening too much Deftones.

If its good, its good, if its not, oh well. Theres not a single thing they can do that would erase all the past 24 years of my life they've been with me. Even if they release dogshit records til the day they decide to retire. There, a boomer (kinda) history that none of you asked, lol...

ps: Im not following my own advice, since Im here. But compared to what it used to be a few years ago, its almost nothing.

I wasn't hyped about Gore, maybe because I was going through some personal stuff at the time, but I just didn't get THAT into the build up and release. This time around it's different for me, maybe because I'm glad they are still making music and releasing an album in a year where my son was born.

That with Covid causing mass changes across the world and impacting our lives in different ways, it feels a bit more special

Post by: DeftonesNZ on Sep 09, 2020, 01:11 PM
Haven't heard leaks either, it's kind of cool going in fresh. Previously I would be a lot more eager to hear anything regardless of quality, I'm still hyped now but back when Gore came out I didn't really have much going on in life,

I wasn't depressed or anything serious but I had just dropped out of University because I realized I didn't actually want to pursue what I was studying. I had no direction for a while after that but new music was one of those things that broke things up a bit, it helped distract me but I think I was definitely lessening the experience of hearing a new album

Now I've got a better balance going on so new music and games just sneak up on me and I get to enjoy things as intended. I owe alot to Deftones, they really made me broaden my music tastes, because of that I'm into a wider array of bands so there's always new material coming out and I get the feeling of hearing new music all the time which has made me a happier person.

I'm sorry to tell you this, but the cover of DE is a picture taken by John Ross that was taken before and completely unrelated to the album and was on sale on stock images websites like shutterstock. You can't have a cheaper and lazier way to make an album cover. But I guess it fits the album.

I remember my brother found Gore on the shelf at Target about 4 days before the release date. He brought it up to check-out along with a bunch of other stuff he had, but it wouldn't scan. Manager came over and said it couldn't be released until the release date and took it from him. He said he didn't know how it ended up on the shelf so early. My brother tried to raise a fuss, but (I'm not sure how true this) the manager said they track the sales dates for new releases so they would get in trouble or fined for selling it early.

Looking back it's hard to tell but I know Gore was leaked in low quality on April 3, 2016. There was an April Fools joke "leak" that only had a few songs on it. Up until the actual leak we had already listened to five tracks I believe. So yeah, Gore leaked about five days prior to the official release, and I'd speculate it will be about the same with this new album...

Completely unrelated but the new Dune movie trailer is out, I posted it over in the Cinema/TV section if anyone's interested in checking it out. Looks pretty damn good from what I can tell.

Yeah this is 100% true. I was a manager for Target at this time and I brought it to the register and scanned it for fun. It comes up in bright red and all caps saying this product ďcannot be sold until (insert release date)ď and to give it to a manager/supervisor.

Not just a new song but also a video for it as well! The interview was posted a little earlier in another thread. Not much talk about the album but there was some good stuff in there, he says the songs blend into one another and that the beginning of Ohms title track is the ending outro of the previous track, which would be Headless.

Not sure if you guys saw this yet. New song next week confirmed!

Nice find ! Was good hearing him ask about a lot of things Iíve been wondering about in terms of the roll out of this new album.

Wasn't that the same band that titled a song "Romantic Dreams."

in all honesty, what's wrong with that title? I always felt like it fit the album aesthetic nicely (and tbh if I had to name KNY after a song that would probably be it)
It's incredibly pedestrian.  The magic about Deftones was always avoiding just that.  Taking a simple concept and obscuring it in shadows and layers.  Not hitting you over the head with whatever the idea is.  And not using trite, commonplace phrases.  The title "Romantic Dreams" is not up to that standard in any way.

We are all adults. We know people have opinions. But that doesnít mean those opinions are promoting positivity towards the band. Which is what weíre trying to do as members here. Most of the time anyway. If you go and read Chinoís comments on expectations people place on others and on them from that recent interview, youíll see heís not too fond of it at all. Itís toxic. I may not like every song title they put out but itís not my art. I can dislike it without having to blast them online about it.

I found very interesting how he's not into watching their live stuff because he's such a self-critic. I brought this up just too many times, I wish they'd consider their archives because the potential is unreal. As the DeftonesLive founder, I couldn't be more biased obviously. I wonder what Abe and Stef think about that though.

I would assume that's why the live vinyl series got discontinued after the Adrenaline edition.

really none of them seem to have big egos, and i doubt they listen to or watch their own stuff much. i believe Chino on that for sure. he's self-conscious

i think he said the next song released will have a video as well. i hope it's with director Rafatoon again

I don't think it's necessarily about the ego. As a sports person you could be watching old footage to see where you think you lacked to plan for possibilities to improve on whatever aspect you find yourself struggling in. I can see a performer doing the same, the parameters are very much the same after all: stamina, precision, etc.

It'd be kind of surreal to watch your own stuff while thinking "I'm so great".

Hey, in my opinion, I feel chino is sometime trying too hard to be obscure, vague, artsy fartsy... with titles that have nothing to do with anything. A straight to the face message is not a bad thing at all, if it is well written, smart and  thought provoking.

But I don't really care, I'm more fan of the music and melodies than his lyrics/song titles. At least they are never cringy. Romantic Dreams is a fine song track. If I had to complain about a song track, it'd be U,U,D,D.... thats lame.

I guess Chino is all about being in the moment when it comes to live shows and not wanting to look back on them, which is a shame, because there are so many out there for them to watch. The part where he talked about feeling weird about singing or screaming in his studio as he can hear his wife and kids upstairs, maybe it's a self confidence issue?
Title: Re: "Ohms" - Deftones New Album
Post by: buflen on Sep 10, 2020, 06:02 PM
Well. I'm pretty sure chino is aware he is not the best live singer.
For the energy and passion, he is rarely beaten, but for just the vocal abilities ... I mean, when I watch a show where his voice doesn't crack every 10 seconds, I consider it a good show for him. The bar is ridiculously LOW. When you are there, it doesn't matter much because of the enegy, but watching it on youtube....  :o

I have no idea why he decides to sing stuff completely out of his range on albums now. He doesn't seem to have as much trouble doing older songs, well except Digital Bath.

Of course. I love them to death, but I'm not completely blind (or should I say deaf) to this issue. I guess I'm more of a fan of their older shows and their albums. I will still go see them live, but I usually try to concentrate on the energy and the music, over the vocals. But it's completely understandable for most people to be turned off by Chino's live vocals.

I wonder why he rarely sounds good live. That Team Sleep live album/DVD recording was awesome, he sounded great, almost as good as he did on the studio album. Also, I guess his age affected his voice, take a look at performances from the early 2000s, he sounded great. Remember that he had throat issues in the past and almost lost his voice. Maybe he never fully recovered from that.

You're being nitpicky in your criticism and also a bit inconsistent. Sure, Chino has come up with off-kilter, unique song titles that aren't always obvious, but not every single one is. Old titles like Bored and 7 Words are pretty commonplace. Bored, in particular, sounds like a boilerplate angsty 90's Gen-X song name. Other titles like My Own Summer (Shove It), Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) and Headup are great but it doesn't exactly take a lot to figure out what they mean. Romantic Dreams, on the other hand, is maybe less clear-cut than you are making it out to be. Is it the most unique song title Chino has ever come up with? No, but Romantic Dreams could still mean a lot of different things. It could be romantic dreams about a person you love, it could be romantic dreams about life, it could have been a romantic dream about Chi waking up and returning to the band for all we know.

BTW, Romantic Dreams has never been one of my favorite Deftones songs. I always thought the song had some shifts in tone that were a little too drastic, from the melodramatic verses to a joyful, poppy chorus, but it has actually kind of grown on me recently. Maybe it's the shift I've had from 26 to 34 in those eight years since Koi dropped, so I appreciate it more.

Yeah, he sounds amazing on that Team Sleep live recording. I think all that screaming obviously impacted immensely and the throat problem has no doubt had a lasting affect.

100% it will have an impact, all the years of screaming, night after night on tour will have a long lasting effect, that coupled with the throat issues he had.

He fucked up his vocal cords late in the white pony tour and he was never the same after, but he had good moments after where he sounded quite good, like in 2003 and 2010. But It will never be as good as pre-2000. Now I guess it's mostly age, but it's not a great excuse. If you take care of your voice and have vocal coaches, its very avoidable.

That's one of the thing I'm not a huge fan of in their last 2 albums, very very abrupt switch in the mood or tempo. Geometric Headdress has this "issue" too... I guess it's their way to experiment with different song structure/sound. but it doesn't work very well for me.

If you really paid attention this board, you would see see that there is constant Deftones criticism. I literally JUST criticized the tonal shifts in Romantic Dreams, people are LITERALLY criticizing Chino's live performances on THIS PAGE of the thread, buflen is criticizing Geo, etc. Your real problem is your opinions are just inconsistent and easy to pick apart.

About the whole 'Chino is not good live' thing, its old news. They know it, we know it, everybody else knows it. I went to two shows, he was amazing in one, and good in the other. You dont have to be a perfect singer to have an impactful career. Theres a LOT of "bad" (or not perfect, live) singers out there with decades of work who influenced generations. Still do. Chino is one. You gotta see the artist for the whole package. Criativity, range, will to keep improving and evolving artistically, etc. He has it all. Otherwise he wouldnt be praised like he is.

Would it be nicer if he was more consistent live? (thats what I think its his problem on shows: inconsistency) Sure.

The live performances are a numbers game. When you've been playing music live for over 25 years, yeah, not every performance is gonna be pitch perfect. He's still pretty consistent for someone who has been doing it for as long as he has, IMO. I was just watching a live video of Kimdracula and Battle-Axe from 2018 that he sounds fucking great in.

I feel like Chino always does well live when he isn't moving around as much or jumping around trying to hype the crowd up. If he just stands and sings, he'll probably be consistent live. Id rather him engage and move with the crowd though instead of just standing in one spot the entire time.

On the topic of live performances, someone mentioned the Team Sleep sessions... omg yes, Chino never sounded better imo. His best recorded performance of his career? Prove me wrong Ves!

I think we're all going slightly off topic in this thread but this is a great post - extremely interesting read.
there's not much to talk about on Ohms beside useless prediction, or not tolerated leak talks, so I'm fine with off topic discussions.

On the topic of live performances, someone mentioned the Team Sleep sessions... omg yes, Chino never sounded better imo. His best recorded performance of his career? Prove me wrong Ves!

Oh, I really love that album. The entire band kills it and Gil Sharone's drumming on it is just beautiful.

I feel like Chino always does well live when he isn't moving around as much or jumping around trying to hype the crowd up. If he just stands and sings, he'll probably be consistent live. Id rather him engage and move with the crowd though instead of just standing in one spot the entire time.

I think you nailed it. Especially now they are all 50 or close to 50 years old. Minus Sergio, I guess...

All the band have an element of sloppiness live. It doesn't really bother me generally. I saw them three times on Gore and they were brilliant every time. The show at Meltdown Festival was incredible. A genuinely special night and they were ON it.

Chino could probably do with working alongside someone like Melissa Cross or whoever in order to find a way to control and preserve his voice for the next decade or so. Late 40s and into your 50s, you have to find a way to keep going - see Tool not even playing certain songs now because of Maynard's aging voice.

I need this album btw. So damn close.

Regarding Chino's vocals live, I feel like its all about his stamina and how him and the band are usually much less focused in delivering a pitch perfect performance than they are in just having fun onstage. A testament to that is how notoriously bad he sounded in 2009, when he was in pretty bad shape, compared to 2010, just an year after, where he was in much better shape (and just healthier overall) and sounded killer live. Then there's Team Sleep's 2014 concert, where he wasn't in that good shape but wasn't wasting stamina by jumping and running around on stage, and he delivered what might have been his best (or at least most consistent) live performance ever.

I don't blame the band at all for this though. Having fun IS the most important thing still, especially when you're this late into your carrer. I imagine after so many years seeing each other almost every day to repeat the same process night after night might grow tiring if you're not having fun.

Anyone else agree that 2009-2010 was a good year for Chino's live performances? He looked great and sounded great to me. I saw some shows where he was spot on. There's an elusive video of WGTB from 2009 that I'm dying to see/hear. While searching thru videos I came across this one I never saw before, he sounded pretty good here.

I think 2009 was an exceptional year for Chino. The best performance of WGTB I've heard occurred during the Slipknot tour. Sadly the video is long gone, Chino screamed the entire thing and sounded like he was hungry for more. It was unreal!

Looking at bits and pieces of interviews that were done regarding the title track and this caught my attention:
Quote
As the last song on the record, itís kind of sung in retrospect Ė itís looking back not just at the batch of songs that come before it, but our lives and our surroundings. The verses are reflecting, but the chorus kind of says, ĎYes this, but thisí Ė itís saying that time will change with the decisions we make. Itís a question and an answer.
This is kind of what I was hoping for; the album being yet unreleased and having not paid any attention to the leaks I can only try to project, but Ohms gave me that feeling of an epilogue rather than a closer. Hearing that the song's placement serves more as a way of looking back than a final conclusion sorts of match with what I wanted to hear.

Completely agree with what you're saying. Naturally, it's hard to know without having listened to the rest of the album but I'm inclined to think that the title tracks will kind of just round things off.

i think he pulled it off. in the 2001 team sleep cactus club live show(i've had on cd since then) he hits all the notes, and sounds really good the whole way. and that was a year he struggled. he's gotten through plenty of deftones shows, and crosses without problems. just depends on the night. he had a great night then

and to tie it in with Ohms upcoming, we're gonna be waiting a while to see how they do with these new Ohms songs live. about a year at least. freakin lame. also i think Abe said in an interview that the next video was shot along with the Ohms video, so that should be good stuff, with that director.

Since we have a whole another week before Genesis, I gotta recomend a newer band I've really been digging lately called Greyhaven. Kind of a generic band name, but their singer will go between sounding like Chino, Keith Buckley and Daryl Palumbo, often in one song. It's pretty impressive.

that is an awesome idea. hope they do the whole album live like they did with diamond eyes

also i mentioned before, they could crank out another album fast if they wanted, with no shows coming anytime soon. i bet they could have it done and released by the end of next year. if they were so inclined of course

Abe did say he really wants to get back in the studio in the Kerrang article. I doubt it will be next year, but a two-year turnaround would be nice. I think the quick turnaround from DE to Koi was from them feeling so recharged after DE's success, so maybe Ohms will have a similar effect on them.

Of late, I've generally resisted listening to singles or at the very least kept it to a minimum because that over familiarity of a song(s) really does lessen the first listen through of an album for me. I couldn't not listen to Ohms (the song) though but have made a concerted effort not to listen toooo much.

Think I'm going to do the same and check out from here from the next single release until the album hits.

You'll probably like it if you're into bands like Coheed and Cambria or The Mars Volta.

Since we have a whole another week before Genesis, I gotta recomend a newer band I've really been digging lately called Greyhaven. Kind of a generic band name, but their singer will go between sounding like Chino, Keith Buckley and Daryl Palumbo, often in one song. It's pretty impressive.

They sound pretty good, I'll have to check out more of their stuff.

I discovered this band really late but they're an exceptional 90's band, listen to their Gold and Silver albums.

For the sake of not driving the mods crazy I'll continue this where it belongs over here:

but I got a ton more to share if anyone is interested in music to tide you over before the release.

This shit is killer. Around the time Gore was coming out, I was managing a Target in New Jersey and a cashier I had asked me to check his band out. I was hesitant but theyíre called Thank You Scientist. Legit stuff

Yeah I was surprised at how good they were. Usually when someone asks me to check on their art itís middling. He worked at this Target inbetween tours although a quick look at him says he has since quit the band and is now a music teacher

The song has grown on me significantly as of late... Probably like a 4.5, though still in the lower tier as far as their closers go.

 I completely agree. Itís a great track and I think it was a great choice as a single. I just donít like it being the album closer. Maybe I will feel differently once I hear the entire album as a whole. But I doubt it. I really hope we get one beautiful slow paced gem on this album. Weíll see.

It's grown on me as well. That intro riff really sticks in your head after a while. As far as their closers go, I listened to Moana yesterday and kept thinking Ohms missed something. But I think it's more about us missing something in the song... I'm convinced it'll all make sense in context. The sounds before the intro riff sound like they were coming from something interesting.

Yeah, at first I  didn't understand how this song could make sense as a closer but the more the lyrics sink in the more I'm okay with it, it has a kind of a bittersweet inevitability to it.

I had this random dream that I had received a promo advance of Radiant City on vinyl and I was going to listen to it to drop my two cents on here. So weird. I guess I'm really excited about this record!

Honestly, I think it was maybe time they changed the sort of song they put last. Ohms doesn't feel like a Deftones closer and I like that. And as someone said on here the other week, it feels like a song that will force you to immediately play the album again.
