  • I think you know the truth.
The cover art and some of the song titles, specifically Error and This Link Is Dead, are really giving off that dystopian, technology-run-amok vibe. That's really exciting to me.

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

the haunted maze
in our minds
right through...

for all time

yeah! someone changed this!

I hear a little bit of that, love that song and the video was cool too. I'm digging this track's groove alot, especially the chorus.

Long, long time lurker. Looks like my username is chosen!

On my 4th listen of Ohms, the chorus is fantastic. Loving the shift in time signatures as well.

Saying I'm pumped for the rest of the album is an understatement.

Interestingly, the lyrics are kind of sad and don't match the upbeat sound of the song.

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.

"Weezer but less memorable" is a bit harsh no? lol

Pink Maggit forever will reign supreme as best album closer, but can we get some love for Rivière? I hardly see anyone talk about that song and I absolutely love it.

Yes! That is one of my favourite Deftones songs.

Nice preview of Anthony Fantano's upcoming review.

You're entitled to your opinion about the song, but something tells me you're going to be eating these particular words when you hear the full album. Trust me - you ain't heard NOTHING yet.
