Derek 04.13.2010 11:51 AM

atsonicpark 04.13.2010 06:46 PM

I only listend once and it has a few okay tracks. Maybe 4 great ones. Kinda predictable. But still better than most of the shit people on this board used to jerk off to... not going to name any names!

I am actually really really fucking pissed off that they didn't realize Chi's last album EROS and instread re-recorded and did this one. They could have done both, Chi deserved this legacy, and from the live cuts they were touring with in 2007 it was going to be really aggressive like the Around the Fur era..

this album here is not bad, I love the deftones and they have never let me down, but like Saturday Night Wrist I will have to adjust to this newish sound they got..

Maximum RASpect to Chi Cheng. we love ya brother and we pray for ya continuously!

I don't believe in leaks, so I haven't heard anything beyond Rocket Skates (the single) and the title track (appears on their YouTube channel). OK, but I liked Saturday Night Wrist better. In fact, that may very well be my favorite Deftones album.

Derek 04.14.2010 08:18 AM

You have heard two tracks but already decided you like Saturday Night Wrist better? Okay...

And I thought they were going to release Eros at a later date? Whatever, I'm still very much happy with this. It's a grower y'all.

atsonicpark 04.14.2010 06:15 PM

Some of the riffs and guitar tones are sweet. It's not bad, but I do think Wrist was better... it kinda falls in the self-titled group of "every song sounds the same".

I like leaks, derek send me a copy ;)

The copy I have of WhitePony is STILL the leaked one from 2000, and I prefer it, I heard the original and it was mixed different, it was not as good as the leaked one..

No, EROS was fully recorded, basically ready to go, but when CHI got in that accident they pushed it back. If you ask me, its probably some legal issues in regards to Chi's cut which sucks because Chi's family has been having to literally beg fans for money to cover his medical expenses :(

Eros is a fucking brilliant deftones record, I would hope they do release it at some point, but I think it is absolutely safe to say thats not going to happen. Maverick makes them wait years in between releases (average of 3) and so since this one is coming out, I don't think they would release Eros in 2012/13, so Eros is probably going off into the archives and our bootleg collections (and I do not have a copy, if y'all have it please send away, for CHI)

I actually really liked S/T, Hexagram is one of the greatest metal songs EVER, let alone for the deftones, I like ALL those tunes, and the lyrics cut me deep cuz of what was going on in my life at that time.. True, the songs sound very similar, but so does Around the Fur, and that is a genius record!

My favorites in rank

1) WHITE PONY
2) Around the Fur
3) Adrenaline
4) Saturday Night Wrist
5) Self/Titled

thanks for the upload DEREK.. its like April 2000 all over again. i love the deftones, fuck the haterz

atsonicpark 04.16.2010 12:27 AM

What haters? I'm pretty sure most people on this board either like them or are just indifferent.. I've never heard anyone say "I HATE that band" if they're familiar with them at all. Even amongst usually snobbish pricks, they're a band way more respected (if only for White Pony) than any of their peers..

many many boardies don't like/complain about my previous deftones post.. the handful on this thread are the regular deftones fans, and I know who you all are out there. further, most people I meet in person, either friends or such, who know of the deftones say "fuck the deftones" and I have never been able to figure out why. After Saturday Night Wrist a few came to their senses, but there are still many many haterz, I get A LOT of shit for being so into the deftones and I have for the past 13 years that I have been aggressively into them..

atsonicpark 04.16.2010 12:51 AM

Weird, I've never seen any hostility towards them whatsoever, especially in real life. L.A. must be a fucked up place.

I don't know who you be talking to. But I like some of their songs, haven't really actually gotten to listen to them fully.

atsonicpark 04.16.2010 01:24 AM

Yeah, my point was, every band has its detractors, but I think Deftones are one of the most non-hated bands ever. People into underground metal, noise, shoegaze, etc. like them. It's universal. It's like the Pixies and the Misfits and even the Smiths, sorta (though obviously they're not as respected as any of those bands). They have fans from all walks of life.

in regards to deftones I have had the complete opposite effect. Probaly in the 90th percentile folks either are indifferent or worse, diametrically opposed to the deftones, and I have never been able to figure it out. Its not just here in LA, its all over the internet too (deftones fan sites aside ;) )

in fact, I have been so pleasantly surprised that this board is talking about al my favorite things (politics, Israel, deftones, theology/religion) and yet I am not the one posting the threads, and there is not shit talking associated with them. I used to get so much negative and assholery on my threads, especially theology and deftones, and yet thats all I've posted about in three weeks here :)

its a trip..

alteredcourse 04.16.2010 01:15 PM

Maybe its a california thing. It's easier to form an opinion or have snap impressions of things that were cultivated nearby.

For example, I hate three inches of blood and have been sick of them as long as theyve been around. But they came from an area I used to live so I heard more about them, and I would probably not give them much of a thought in the first place if they were from across the continent.
