Haven’t heard of Deftones? That’s impossible.
EVERYBODY knows who the Deftones are. That’s how fucking amazing this band is. Ever since they were formed in 1988 in Sacramento, California, they haven’t stopped making and playing songs we fans like to call masterpieces.
The band consist of Chino Moreno on lead vocals and guitar, Stephen Carpenter on guitar, Chi Cheng on bass, Frank Delgado on keyboards and turntables, and Abe Cunningham on drums and percussion. To date, they have released SIX brilliant albums from Adrenaline (1994â€“1996), Around the Fur (1997â€“1999), White Pony (2000â€“2002), Deftones (2003â€“2005), Saturday Night Wrist (2006â€“2007), and the latest and most amazing yet, Diamond Eyes (2010â€“present).
The Deftones have always been loud and proud about their musical diversity. Some people describe them as alternative metal while some categorized them under experimental rock. Their diverse influences played a big part on their ever-changing sound (like Duran Duran, The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Sadu Adu and B-Real). They made it sure that they rarely sound the same to create diversity in their sound, for them and for their fans. Ang guess what? It totally works! After 22 years in the music scene, countless tours and six mind-blowing albums, the Deftones are here to stay.
And guess what, Splintr.com is bringing them here to the Philippines! They will be here LIVE in Manila at the World Trade Center on Febuary 12, 2010! Are you going? ARE YOU GOING!? You better.
