Really cool pic. Looks like long hair Chino is starting to make a return.

Just spotted this pic on iTunes UK.

i'm kinda thinkin the whole Black Stallion thing isn't gonna happen. kinda like it didn't happen back in 2000. it would kinda be funny if it doesn't, just to relive it not happening yet again. wouldn't bother me either way

Don't worry, it's happening this year. I know it from a reliable source

  • I think you know the truth.
If it's a re-release deal, the most exciting thing would be The Boy's Republic being put on Spotify.

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!

 Really excited they are back and we all are back! Iím getting a real summer vibe almost off it. I love it though. Itís super upbeat. It just sounds like 2020 Deftones to me. Chino can absolutely nail this live no problem.

Love the new promo pic as well. They all look great. Back at it for one more record baby letís do this

Theory: This Link Is Dead is an explicit song according to Apple Music. When Chino curses, it usually comes in a scream. Therefore, This Link Is Dead will be heavy.

I wonder if it is one of the ones you have heard.

I back this theory

It is.

I'll just say... Ohms and Radiant City are the only names that haven't been around.

My own summer has the catchiest riffs and its up there with one of their best.

I really disagree with this song being too catchy. I borderline feel it's not catchy enough for a single to become a hit, which I personally don't care.

I have not heard This Link Is Dead. They talk about the one I raved about in the Kerrang article.  ;)

If you heard everything Chino played on his live stream, yes you did, but if you didn't then, he played a part of it.

I don't know, it was too easy for me to get into the song, that is not usually the case with Deftones. I hope I am wrong and the song grows on me instead of becoming boring.
