Deftones’ sound was originally associated with the nu-metal movement of the early 2000s, but in reality their style is impossible to pigeonhole, mixing nu-metal, experimental rock, and psychedelic rock with a range of other influences. The band’s musical progression can be tracked from album to album: contrast 1995’s Adrenaline, very much a product of a time where Nirvana, the Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails were at the cutting edge of alternative music, with some of the doom metal sounds on 2012’s Koi No Yokan (CD | vinyl) or 2016’s gospel-tinged Gore (CD | vinyl).

Throughout all the genre and sound changes since their formation in 1988, Deftones have maintained a rock-solid fanbase who lap up their releases: Adrenaline, Around the Fur (CD | vinyl) and White Pony all went platinum, while Deftones and Gore reached the top ten of the UK album chart. Along with these highs, the band have also experienced extreme lows such as bassist and backing vocalist Chi Cheng’s sad passing in 2013 following a 2008 car accident.

Through all of the ups and downs, Deftones show no signs of slowing down - so get yourself a Deftones beanie hat, decorate your garms with some Deftones patches and get rocking to the unique sound of one of the most enduring alternative metal bands on the scene today.
