This song breakdown from Chino on the title track is awesome https://songexploder.net/deftones

Includes clips from Stef's original demo and them jamming out the idea in the studio.

That was absolutely wonderful, I could listen to literal hours of that. Hearing the isolated tracks was so cool, especially Frank's and how the effects on the vocals build up etc

That breakdown of the inception of Ohms was great. Can anyone identify the effect responsible for Stef's guitar tone? Is it an octave fuzz or just an octaver?

I'm not sure about that, but I'm almost certain there's also a subtle harmonizer playing thirds there, along with the also very subtle -1 octave
i'm confused??

That songexploder podcast was great. Very cool how in depth they got with the creation of Ohms.

I'm shocked Abe didn't use a click track on this album.
This is the first time I've ever heard Chino acknowledge the abuse he's done to his voice over the years.
I kinda liked the original slower Ohms riff...

I wish they would do this kind of stuff more often. Kudos to the podcast for thinking of something new. At least it's better than reading Chino's response as to why Eros isn't released yet. Lol.

Still got Ohms on heavy rotation, still love it, still the only weak track for me is TLID, I don't think it will ever sink in with me, apart from that it's a flawless album.

Same, it just does nothing for me. The rest of the album is still really dope.

Seems everybody pretty much loves the Album. However itís interesting how polarizing both TLID and TSOM are to this board. IMO...both are solid tracks. I doubt I will get much support here but.

I think This Link is Dead is far better than TSOM.
One last Thing...You Should Beware the Content!!

Thank God that you........ love..... at all.

Yeah I tend to agree. Actually ranking all 10 would be quite difficult but Iím fairly certain TLID and TSOM are both somewhere in the 6-10 range.

TSOM is easily a top 3 track for me, but there is something really awkward about the way it kicks in. I definitely would have like some kind of intro or better transition into the song proper.

Y'all mad, TSOM is up there. I also like the way it just kicks in. I feel like Rosemary-type intros are overdone.

True, but I would have killed for a Hearts redux type intro

TSOM Is one of their greatest tracks imo. Such a unique guitar sound to me.  Great misical composition and lyrically as well... also Iíve never tried to make myself like something or discover something that I canít discover where others can until they wrote this link is dead. I just donít get the hype but itís music and thatís how it goes

Agreed

I too like the way the song just kicks in

I love that they kept Abeís sticks in the beginning. Genesis too. At the end of Ceremony going into Urantia you get that live feeling also like Abeís sticks give u because thereís some very subtle but clear clicking sounds like Terry hitting switches or something or someone doing something with an instrument. Listen for it if u missed it. The record has a bunch of little sounds and ideas that give it more of a live feeling than any of their previous records IMO.... adding to  the ďfinger snapsĒ

Going into something like my 4th listen, first time since the release week. Genesis sounds pretty great tbh

Keep saying the same thing . Itís grown on me so much. Pompeji has as Well. Chinos just sounds amazing on Genesis.

Yes!  Genesis went from one of my least favourites to a song I look forward to every time I hit play.  It's got such a full and heavy sound - love it!
