Biography

“Pretty,” affirms Deftones singer and guitarist Chino Moreno when discussing their new full-length studio album, Diamond Eyes. “We’re not afraid to be pretty.” It’s an adjective most riff-heavy groups might avoid, but then, Deftones have never been your average hard rock band.
As kids, the Sacramento fivesome cut its teeth on Anthrax and The Smiths, ... Read more in Amazon's Deftones Store

"Koi No Yokan" sees the Deftones' music reach a maturity that allows them to navigate rougher textures and beautiful soundscapes with great dexterity. Very much building on from previous album "Diamond Eyes", the subsequent evolution and refinement of their sound makes "Koi No Yokan", to me, one of the Deftones' stand out works.

Lead single 'Leathers', which caught my interest and pulled me into buying the album almost on the weight of it alone, is a key demonstrator of this prowess. Refinement for the Deftones does not mean losing the edge which hooked so many in with the visceral anger on songs like 'My Own Summer' and 'Back to School'. 'Leathers' haunting opening is violently punctured by the full weight of the band and Chino Moreno's vocals, and the song continues with these harder elements, soundscaped by a melody which is never overpowered, only matched; but then, a bridge which is both seductive and insidious really demonstrates the skill of these musicians.

Album highlight for me is 'What Happened to You?', a dynamic, soaring masterpiece whose only fault it that it is just under four minutes long, when it could easily be the same length as 'Rosemary' due to its scale and scope.

The Deftones' original bass player, Chi Cheng, passed away about six months after "Koi No Yokan" was released. Sergio Vega is a great replacement and his contribution is more noticeable here than on "Diamond Eyes", but listening to the album again in light of Chi's death, there is a certain poignance I found which was not immediately apparent in the album, but gives it a moving extra layer.

Deftones is a strange band to come out of the 90s. At the time they were labelled as nu-metal along with Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park, but it was clear they had more range and artistic ambition than just that misplaced label. The fact they were never shoe-horned into one outdated musical style allowed them to stay relevant and end up as one of the most consistently good bands from the 90s to date. They have never released a bad album, it's always been down to personal preference.

As a Deftones fan, I would confess to skipping some songs on their previous albums, even White Pony! When you're in a car, you only want the best tracks but I don't think I will skip any track when this CD is in. That's because of the variety between each track which shows how great an album it is to play in sequential order. There's not a single dud (which explains my 5 star rating). The best thing is the songs here are long with most of them going from 4 min and above. They even released "Tempest" as a single coming at more than 6 minutes.

The album starts out with a banger, "Swerve City", which shows they haven't forgotten strong metal riffs mixed with Chino Moreno's iconic vocals. Their music is as sexy and ferocious as ever here, which is probably why it's appealed to both guys and girls. "Romantic Dreams" brings a lot of tempo shifts that will knock you around that makes you never want to skip around the song. The dynamics of the song are so strong that they just let the last minute play out instrumentally. "Leathers" was the first song to be released, and it worked as a great return to Chino's shrieking and heavy metal. There's an animalistic style to it with the sludgy "wear your insides, on the outside" bit after the chorus.

Deftones
The Californian 5-piece had never been of particular interest to me - since their breakthrough in the late 90's with Around the Fur hits - 'My Own Summer' & 'Be Quiet & Drive' - the former being a scream fueled cauldron of anger, constantly shouting "Shove it", the latter showing the opposite with blissfully clean harmonies. These 2 tracks would later revisit me via flicking through music stations, only this time, thanks to the dire quality of music at the time, made an impact. Late to the party? Absolutely, I'd missed out on 4 albums since then, with only one song grabbing my attention mid-way, 'Minerva' - what I believed at the time to be a desolate and drone-like grimace of a metal track. With an open mind, urged on by a need for new sound, (and keen on the super energetic/melodic force of 2010's Diamond Eyes) I acquired Koi No Yokan - which loosely translates along the lines of 'Feeling of Love' or 'Love at First Sight' - An apt reference for the first listen...

BOOM BOOM BOOM RIFFING BOOM BOOM BOOM
Swerve City is a prime example of being quick out the blocks. A thunderous riff that resonates throughout the song, acts as the cornerstone to a furiously brief bit of musicianship for just 2:45. "She breaks her horses" Vocalist, Chino Moreno's first line pays homage to the bands fan favorite early album, White Pony. "..With strange, distant voices - that travel through the air" ends the verses and forces the song onward until it gets to that oddly tranquil guitar interlude. like a ray of light shone onto a down and dirty song. Track no.2 would always struggle to top that, but Romantic Dreams offers a whole new experience. 2 minutes longer, the pace has slowed with a rolling guitar tab, trailing back and fourth.
