At the time of its release, Adrenaline was applauded for its unique touches of sound and style both instrumentally and vocally; today the record is still recognized as a strong debut for the Deftones. Compared to the rest of the band’s discography, however, Adrenaline does lack depth. "I literally can't wait for Download to see Tool perform again, last time I saw them was 2006 – at Download – and that was a special year.
But likewise Gore is marred by the occasional muddled tunes and a tracklist that feels more at odds with itself than a coherent statement. While the record does contain some variety throughout its material, “Fireal” involves the most diversity in sound, style, and structure. Pay heed to the bubbling synth of opener ‘Genesis’. Taking its name from a Japanese phrase translating to ‘a premonition of love’, ironically, Deftones’ seventh album is by some distance the most under appreciated of their catalogue. Alice Pattillo Please refresh the page and try again. Be crushed by the heavy sludge of ‘Headless’. Be Quiet for Now: Truthfully Ohms is a remarkably consistent record, so choosing a worst song presents a bit of a challenge. I took myself completely out of it and wrote about other things… It’s not me. How to pick a favourite from a catalogue varied, multifaceted and beloved by millions? The undisputed masterpiece. — Saby Reyes-Kulkarni.
Led by Chino Moreno’s soaring vocals, and the loud/quiet dynamic of his talented bandmates, Deftones are perhaps the most consistent “heavy” rock act of the past quarter century.
In these songs, Moreno touches on the human condition with poetic lyrics and a focus on singing. The band’s iconic duality of dreamy heaviness only appears in small doses and would begin to blossom after Adrenaline. "This track reminds me of skating and summer, just the vibe behind it, it's just such a melodic but heavy hitting track. In the House of Fly: “Cherry Waves” portrays a band that could be as melodic and dreamy as it wanted to be without compromising its edge. Equally beatnick and beat-down, it’s a song only Deftones could pull off. Deftones, never ones to do anything expected of them, responded by releasing the heaviest, most primal record they’d ever made. On White Pony, Deftones tossed out most of the overt references to hip hop while maintaining boom-bap drum patterns. That all changed when bassist Chi Cheng was involved in a severe car accident on November 4, 2008, which left him semi-comatose. Only “Korea” works better as a standalone song than part of the track listing. This time, we follow Deftones’ career, from their 1995 debut, Adrenaline, to their most recent effort, 2020’s Ohms. Should Saturday Night Live Replace This Actor as Joe Biden? White Pony moved over 1 million units in the US, remarkable numbers by today’s standards but paltry in the age of Linkin Park. And as a whole, rather than the record primarily offering aggression like the previous LP, there’s a lot more emotion to take away throughout Around the Fur. At its best, Gore displays why it is precisely that tension that propels the band to its greatest heights, being one of the few bands to satisfactorily transcend the nu-metal label by being so broad sonically and so consistent in quality to make the genre tag feel only occasionally appropriate. That isn’t to say that Ohms is raw, stripped-down or unsophisticated.
But though it’s true to say that ‘Koi No Yokan’ isn’t loved like the rest of their catalogue, some of the band’s very best songs are contained within.

Where Gore came across all-encompassing, Ohms feels sleek and concise, even though it’s barely three minutes shorter than its predecessor.

There’s a moment, on opener ‘Hexagram’, where Chino’s scream sounds so painful – both in terms of physical delivery, and the emotions it taps into – the song is nigh on impossible to listen to without your knees buckling.
Carpenter’s longstanding admiration for Meshuggah reaches its apex in the song’s nasty palm-muted riff. The end of Bloody Cape is brutal as is that of Royal and the riff to Diamond Eyes is pretty heavy. — Joseph Schafer.
To celebrate Kaan's first album with the band, we thought we'd ease him into his new role by sitting down with him not to talk about the new record, but to chat about one of his, and the rest of the band's, favourite bands: the mighty Deftones.
“Elite” later won the band their sole Grammy for Best Metal Performance. It owed as much to The Cure and Pixies as the lineage of heavy metal. Deftones heaviest songs?
So, for now, it’s time to be quiet and drive through Deftones’ masterful discography.
The magic that happens when the two butt heads is present throughout album number two. Probably:-Lotion-WGTB-Hexagram-Headup-Needles and Pins I remember the first time I listened to the Self Titled - I was blown away by it's heaviness. White Pony dismisses nu metal’s adolescent angst in favor of sexual yearning and existential dread. It's quite a long track, but it's definitely a favourite.".
Deftones played that year as well. He would never recover and passed away in 2013. I’m writing a story here.” For this the band won the Grammy for Best Metal Performance, for the song ‘Elite’, which owes much to turntablist Frank Delgado as a full-time member. The band largely improvised the song before writing the rest of the album — curiously they placed it late — thickening the moody attack of “Be Quiet and Drive”, while sneakily playing in odd time.
