Albums that I currently own in CD form.
Deftones is a rock/shoegaze inspired/alternative metal band that I really enjoy, mainly for their soft/hard juxtaposition that they can display. The tender vocals contrasted with the guitar and hardcore elements really makes it. They tend to have more shoegaze influenced songs, and then more hardcore songs. I believe they are so popular because of the versatility they display. If you are more into If you haven't listened to Deftones yet, I would really recommend them.
I was introduced to Deftones by someone I used to know a while back, and it took me some time to actually listen.. but when I did, I was blown away. Initially, they were not my fancy, they became one of my favorite bands of all time, and now I listen to them occasionally. I would love to see them at a show sometime, and considering they are still producing music, it is totally possible. I heard that Chino Moreno sucks irl.
I wanted to create a fanpage to show just how much I enjoy their music and sound, and I also really like the look and artistic efforts of the band. I love that Chino Moreno has so many side projects and things he works towards, it's always admirable to see a band have so much use out of their time. To just create, create, create. It is beautiful.
If you like deftones, then i HIGHLY recommend the following songs:
Here I will extensively review every album that I own a physical copy of. I got them all the same day, and intend to actually open them up and listen to the CD's how they are supposed to be enjoyed, and I am looking forward to it. Hopefully I can play them in my car sometime. I am usually the type of person to cherry pick songs that I deeply enjoy, and let recommended do the rest of the exploring for me, never actually seeking out entire albums of content. However, this time I will make myself listen to the entirety of the album, as the set piece of work that it is. Perhaps it will be like a sonata, tying in parts of the beginning to the end. I cannot wait.
I know, I know, EVERYONE loves White Pony, but for good reason. Recently, I've liked listening to pink and mini maggit , they both sound good together. Street carp is really really good. Something about the shrieking within knife prty makes my insides all excited... my intestines squirm of joy as though there's a butterfly fluttering in there, trying to escape. This album makes me feel really pumped, like there's energy inside of me waiting to be released. it's nice.
Diamond Eyes is possibly one of the best albums I have heard. I haven't listened to all of it yet, but I really love the song Beauty School. UPDATE: I am waaay more aquainted with Diamond Eyes! I fucking love this album! beauty school, sextape, so good.. my top songs off of there. The slow melodies of this album reallllyyy make it! HIGHLY reccommend. nuff said.
Adrenaline is a really good album, I am personally one to really enjoy the earlier stages of more hardcore bands, as their older songs tend to be more guttural and less refined than their newer stuff. The same could be said for this album. My absolute favorite song off of this is "Fireal", I would listen to it over and over and over and over. "7 Words" and "Bored" are also good, but I really really like fireal. Highly recommend.
Around the Fur is REALLY GOOD. Have not listened to it as much as other songs right now, but it's pretty sweet. Friggin' Sweet. Mascara and My Own Summer, Shut up and drive. U know the drill.
