    INFO: Deftones is a band with strong roots in the alternative metal scene. They started out as a nu-metal band that went from simply playing heavy riffs, screaming and rapping a bit, to creating a more nuanced sound mixing shoe gaze, electronic samples and pop inspired melodies into their metal music. Because of their willingness to experiment, they’ve sometimes been called the Raidohead of Metal. Let’s find out if they deserve that title.

      Why do you think it was too late? Better late than ever. But i think it would be awesome to be in the crowd at a show just
      when they started blowing up though. Fantastic description though.

      @ericromano8078 Рік тому +32

      I like to listen to them during the day in the right mood, but I 100% understand what you mean by night music. It's like, the lack of light helps you hear the music more. There are some songs, in general not just theirs, that you can hear and feel the absence of sound just as much as the presence. In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins is a great example as well. Something completely unlike anything Deftones does but still has that quality. But it's something Deftones has mastered. You can hear it during parts of Adrenaline and some more in Around the Fur, and then it's pervasive, in a good way, from White Pony onward.

    I heard someone say this before but Deftones makes music to help express the feelings you can’t verbally communicate. Their riffs, screams, both soft and loud vocals help express how you feel at a certain time. They’re not just a one type of song band, they have a wide range and variety of sounds. These sounds help us imagine and create an image of these feelings we can’t picture on our own. Deftones music helps escape from whatever you’re feeling or helping find what’s wrong. Interpret the music as you will, but this is personally how I feel about this.

    I always felt there was a warmth and smothness to their sound compared with most of nu-metal bands of the time. They were all aiming to combine mellow and aggressive musical elements in their tracks, but for me, Deftones' work is magnificent in that sense. Maybe it was due to their openness to different styles and ease of navigating nu-metal tropes.

      While I still like Korn I mostly agree. Though I didn't really consider Deftones Nu Metal. They were always experimental to me. From one song to another it was something different while still being completely Deftones. So I couldn't label then Nu Metal.
      Also the fact most "Nu Metal" bands sounded so similar back then, made me think of Deftones as something different.

    • @LawrenceSteps
      @LawrenceSteps 5 років тому +32

      The contemporaries are the plethora of Nu-Metal bands from the time. Korn perhaps the notable exception. Limp Bizkit, Static X, P.O.D, Disturbed, Papa Roach, Il Nino, Drowning Pool amongst others. The breadth of their work never had real evolution in sound, as their got stuck in their early success formulas. The Deftones were always different in that regard, in their willingness to just go in a different direction.

There is this feeling Deftones radiates unlike any other band, makes you drive in the sunset or just go stargazing on a hot summer night. Somehow their music combines chaos and pain with soothing and calming vibes. Been listening to them ever since and personally believe they have never made a poor record.

    Deftones is seriously one of those bands that are purely unique and a band that seriously cannot make a bad album. Every album just sounds thought out to a degree and you can tell nothing was just thrown together to make it sound like a song. It just makes sense.

    Frank Delgato is the essential, secret sauce of Deftones.
    His underappreciated genius transformed Deftones into a world class band. He compliments his band mates perfectly and draws out creativity from all of them that created that timeless style.

    I love how some of their songs can sound so unsettling and so peaceful at the same time. Cherry Waves is a perfect example of a song that feels peaceful and haunting at the same time. It’s beautiful honestly, and only Trent Reznor and Deftones can make a song with that sort of feeling, but with a different kind of sound. Love the Deftones (and NIN), hope to see them at ACL this year with Metallica.

    The main reason I love Deftones is the simple fact that they are artists that are not pretentious. They create art that you can love or hate, but you will have a reaction to it. A real reaction. For instance, Gore is one of my favorite albums with all of its twists and turns. But “Acid Hologram” is my least favorite Deftones song (we don’t talk about “Pink Cellphone”). I have a visceral reaction to it. But then I hear “Prayers/Triangles” or “Phantom Bride” and I get happy and excited. Their music is, I hate to be THAT guy, an experience. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions, and the different ways of perceiving those emotions. Unless it’s “Pink Cellphone” WHICH DOESN’T EXIST!

      Koi No Yokan is my favorite album from them. I don't know what they tried to do with it, but each song for some reason reminds me of a different 70's or 80's song. For example, Graphic Nature, the very first time I heard it, Maneater by Hall & Oates popped into my head. With Rosemary it was The Chauffeur by Duran Duran. Entombed reminded me of some Rush songs and would be at home among all the power ballads throughout the 80's.

      Lie Likes Music this is gonna be tough for me but I'll try anyway! Many bands are super close so this list isn't completely accurate.
      Devin Townsend, Opeth, Enslaved, Ihsahn, Deftones, Leprous, Panopticon, Gojira, Cult Of Luna and let's say Mastodon. What about you, what's your top 10?

      @@franlovelsimic8421 Devin Townsend, Enslaved, Opeth, and Ihsahn you got the masters of extreme progressive metal there. Loved Emperor but Ihsahn solo stuff is defiently thinking man's black metal.

    I torpedoed into Deftones when Diamond Eyes came out. Never looked back since. I love them so much. Best band to shuffle their whole catalog. Or, pick an album for a mood you're in. Their records seem offer something for each mood possible. Anyway, solid video! Cant wait to see them this May

    Koi no Yokan is criminally underrated, I truly believe it to be their second best album after White Pony.

    I've always thought of them like the Pink Floyd of metal with how translucent their music is. Or even like Rush how their music began to change as time went on.

    This band definitely changed my life, they are unlike anything I have ever listened to. They are simply amazing, godly, something that bores in your soul forever. Thank you for this video

    The first time I heard Deftones I was on a camping trip with my best friend growing up. The first song I heard was “My Own Summer (Shove It).” This was played on a discman with portable speakers and it was amazing! Still absolutely love the band to this day.

    The Deftones is my heart and soul. I can listen to their entire discography in one sitting and have done so many times.
