Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
  • Deftones: Chino Moreno (vocals, guitar); Stephen Carpenter (strings); Chi Cheng (bass); Abe Cunningham (drums); Frank Delgado (scratches).
  • Additional personnel: Rey Osburn (vocals).
  • Recorded at The Spot, Sacramento, California; Larrabee Studios, West Hollywood, California; Studio X, Seattle, Washington.
  • Since the '90s, the Deftones have clawed out their own specialized niche in music. Many have imitated them, but few have reached their heights. They were innovators of so-called nu metal and could easily have settled into complacency riding the wave they helped create. Instead they continue to make waves with their self-titled fourth album.
  • Deftones frontman Chino Moreno wastes no time in expressing his despair mere seconds into "Hexagram" with a blood-curdling scream that will make your skin crawl. The dense, down-tuned guitars of Stephen Carpenter form a solid backdrop for the vocals that's more about creating a mood than a melody ("When Girls Telephone Boys"). Ironically one of the album's most intense moments ("Lucky You") doesn't even involve guitar, it relies on Nine Inch Nails-type rhythm and keyboards to create an uncomfortable tension. DEFTONES winds down with the loud-soft-loud pattern they're famous for on "Moana."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/29/03, p.60) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This is metal that crushes, then soothes; collapses, then soars..."

Spin (7/03, p.105) - "...With DEFTONES, they've built a cathedral of suffering, filled to the rafters with agony, awe, and terror..." - Grade: B

CMJ (6/2/03, p.6) - "...These compositions are messy and contained, quiet and loud, aggressive and vulnerable--often within a single breath..."
