Deftones have "six or seven songs" for new album

Saturday, May 12, 2018 12:47 PM PT


As you may recall, Deftones recently hinted that they were working on some new music. Frontman Chino Moreno has now confirmed those hints, stating in a new interview that they currently have "six or seven songs" thus far. Moreno had this to say via an interview with Rock.com.ar (rough translation via ThePRP):

"There are six or seven songs, which are still mutating. They are very powerful, and I am anxious because, as I told you before, it has been a collaborative process. I think all our albums were postcards of what we were going through at each moment. Either with 'Adrenaline' (1995), we were boys, with 'White Pony', we had matured a little, with 'Diamond Eyes' (2010) or with which we are recording. Everyone has their own feeling, because it belongs to an era. Today we are older guys, I suppose, but we still enjoy making songs with marked riffs, cool melodies and a lot of groove. It is fun."

Within the same interview, Moreno made it clear that guitarist Stephen Carpenter has been actively participating in the writing process, unlike Deftones' previous record, Gore:

"We really want Stephen to have a strong role on all the albums, but in this case ['Gore'] it did not turn out the way we wanted. Most of his problems were not about Deftones, but about personal things. The best part is that now we are writing songs for the new album, and unlike 'Gore', it's been a joint effort."

A release schedule for the album has yet to be established.

When Madball was six songs into their newest album, they realized they were sitting on a death metal gold mine. No other band has ever made the switch from NYHC to death metal so effortlessly.

Im surprised reading that about Gore, i thought all those boring, heavy riffs that made every song sound the same was because Carpenter played too big of a role

No, Carpenter has said he wants a balls-out metal album, with less (or no) atmospheric stuff. More in line with Meshuggah, who he is a huge fan of.

More like what he just did with Will Haven

deftones have sucked since Sergio Vega joined. He has brought his stupid hair color and frooted up the music. Chino tell the people how Stephen got mad at Sergio getting involved in the writing process.

Gore has some OK songs, but is a mediocre album at best. Glad to hear S.C. is going to have more input on this one.
