Band history

Early years: 1989-1993

When Carpenter was sixteen years old, he was confined to a wheelchair for several months after being hit by a car while skateboarding with his best friends Tom and Louisa and began teaching himself guitar by playing along to bands like Anthrax, Stormtroopers of Death and Metallica.[4] It has been reported that the driver paid Carpenter a cash settlement that allowed the band to purchase equipment,[1][4][5] but drummer Abe Cunningham commented in an interview that this was "a myth about how our band was started."[6] Skateboarders Skateboarding is the act of riding on and performing tricks with a skateboard. ...

Carpenter, Moreno and Cunningham went to the same high school, and otherwise knew each other as childhood friends and through the skateboarding scene in Sacramento.[4] When Moreno found out Carpenter played guitar, he set up a jam session with Cunningham and the three began playing regularly in Carpenter's garage circa 1988. After playing with several bassists, the band settled on Justin Jaramillo and had soon recorded a four track demo.[4] Within two years the band had begun playing club shows and later expanded their playing territory to San Francisco and Los Angeles playing shows alongside bands such as Korn.[5][7] While closing for another band in L.A. after the majority of the audience had left, the band impressed a Maverick Records representitve and were soon after signed to the label after showcasing three of their songs for Freddy DeMann and Guy Oseary.[7][5] Skateboarders Skateboarding is the act of riding on and performing tricks with a skateboard. ...

The name "Deftones" was made up by Carpenter who wanted to pick "something that would just stand out but you know, not be all cheese-ball at the same time."[8] Carpenter combined the hip hop slang term "def", which was used by artists he listened to such as LL Cool J and Public Enemy, with the suffix "-tones", which was a popular suffix among 50s bands whose music he enjoyed (e.g. Dick Dale and the Deltones; The Quin-Tones, The Monotones, The Cleftones, The Harptones). Carpenter said the name is also intentionally vague to reflect the band's tendency to not focus on just one style of music.[8] Look up Def in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

The band's debut album Adrenaline was recorded at Bad Animals Studio in Seattle, Washington and released on October 3, 1995. It was produced by Deftones and Terry Date, who would go on to produce the band's next three albums. Initially unsuccessful, extensive touring, word-of-mouth and Internet promotion built the band a dedicated fanbase, as well as helping Adrenaline to sell over 220,000 copies without the singles "7 Words" and "Bored" (as well as their music videos) receiving any airplay.[1][9] The band contributed the non-album track "Teething" to the soundtrack for the 1996 film The Crow: City of Angels and are also seen performing the song live during one of the film's scenes.

The album spent 21 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers chart reaching a peak position of 23.[10] When asked what he attributed the album's success to, Cheng responded: "One word: perseverance. We've been together for almost eight years, on the road for two and we do it with honesty and integrity - and the kids can tell."[11] The album was RIAA certified gold on 7 July 1999 in recognition of 500,000 units sold.[12] Top Heatseekers is a weekly albums chart introduced by Billboard in 1993 whose purpose is to highlight sales by new and developing musical recording artists. ...

Regarding the recording of the album, Abe Cunningham said, "At the time we did the first record - which I really like and think is good - you can tell the band was really young. We'd been playing most of those songs for quite a while, and we were just so happy to be making a record that we didn't really think a whole lot about making the songs better."[13] Moreno felt that Adrenaline was recorded "really fast"[14] and performed all his vocals live with the band in the room using a hand-held Shure 58 microphone.[15] A review of Adrenaline praised the album's musical control and precision, overall groove and Cunningham's "surprisingly sophisticated drumming" but also felt that "there is a bit of sameness in Chino Moreno's whispered vocal melodies, which drags the record down a bit."[16]


Around the Fur: 1997-1999

Deftones' second album Around the Fur was recorded at Studio Litho in Seattle, Washington and produced by Terry Date. Released on October 26, 1997, the album included a collaboration with singer Max Cavalera (of Sepultura/Soulfly) on "Headup", a tribute to Cavalera's late stepson Dana Wells, to whom the album was also dedicated.[17] Although not yet a member of the band, Delgado is credited as "audio" on five of the album's tracks, and Cunningham's wife, Annalynn, provides guest vocals on "MX".

"When we went in to make this record, we really didn't have a set idea of what we wanted to come out with," said Moreno in a 1998 interview with Chart magazine. However, he felt that the album "fell into place" once the band had settled into the studio.[14] The band expanded its sound, spending more time with Terry Date and giving more thought to the album's production. Cunningham varied his drum sound and experimented by using different types of snare drum on almost every track.[13] The album was praised for its loud-soft dynamics, the flow of the tracks, Moreno's unusual vocals and the strong rhythm-section grooves created by Cheng and Cunningham.[14][18][19] Stephen Thomas Erlewine's review noted that "while they don't have catchy riffs or a fully developed sound, Around the Fur suggests they're about to come into their own."[20] Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away) is a song sung by Deftones. ...

The album was highly anticipated and propelled the band to fame in the alternative metal scene on the strength of radio and MTV airplay for the singles "My Own Summer (Shove It)" and "Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)".[1] Around the Fur sold 43,000 copies in its first week of release, and entered the Billboard 200 at number 29 (its peak position), remaining on the charts for 17 weeks.[19][21] The band went back to touring, making appearances at the Warped Tour, Pinkpop, Roskilde Festival and Ozzfest as well as releasing a live EP on June 22, 1999.

On June 20, 2000, the band released their third album, White Pony, again produced by Terry Date and Deftones. It was recorded at The Plant Studios in Sausalito, California and at Larrabee Sound Studios, West Hollywood, California. The album debuted at number three in the US Billboard chart with sales of 178,000 copies.[22] Delgado (DJ Speedboat) was now a full-time band member, adding new elements to the band's music. The melancholy "Teenager", for example, was a radical departure in style and mood, a "love song," according to Moreno[23], which incorporated elements of glitch and trip hop, with programming duties carried out by Moreno's friend and side-project Team Sleep bandmate DJ Crook. A collaboration with singer Maynard James Keenan of Tool is present on "Passenger", and the refrain in "Knife Party" features vocals by Rodleen Getsic.

An interview with the band in Alternative Press explained the recording process of White Pony.[25] After a break from touring, the band spent four months in the studio writing and recording White Pony, the longest amount of time they had dedicated to an album thus far. Moreno explained that the majority of this time was spent trying to write songs, and that the writing of "Change (In the House of Flies)" was the turning point where the band began working as a group. Despite being pressured to release the album sooner, the band decided to take their time making the album. Cheng explained that "We didn’t feel like we had anything to lose, so we made the record we wanted to make." Moreno did not have a common theme in mind lyrically, but made a conscious decision to bring an element of fantasy into his lyrics, explaining that "I basically didn’t sing about myself on this record. I made up a lot of story lines and some dialogue, even. I took myself completely out of it and wrote about other things."

Change (In the House of Flies), usually referred to as Change, was the first single from American rock band Deftones third album White Pony. ...


Reviews were generally positive, noting Moreno's increasing sophistication as a lyricist and the group's experimentalism.[26] Of White Pony, one reviewer wrote that "Deftones went soft, but in an impressive way, to twist around its signature punk sound."[27] A particularly negative review from Select said "Maybe when they abandon their arrested development and stop convincing themselves the world is aligned specifically for their personal displeasure, they'll arrive at something listenable."[26] Punk rock is an anti-establishment music movement beginning around 1976 (although precursors can be found several years earlier), exemplified and popularised by The Ramones, the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned. ...

The album was originally released as an 11 track version beginning with "Feiticeira" and ending with "Pink Maggit" and featuring gray cover art. A limited edition print of 50,000 black and red jewel case versions of White Pony were also released at the same time with a bonus 12th track entitled "The Boy's Republic". Later, the band recorded "Back to School (Mini Maggit)", a rap-influenced interpretation of the album's closer, "Pink Maggit", at the request of Maverick Records. The song was picked up as a single and placed as the new opening track (with "Pink Maggit" still the closer) of a re-released White Pony on October 3, 2000 featuring altered white cover art. Not entirely happy with re-releasing the album, the band negotiated to have "Back to School" made available as a free download for anyone who had already bought the original album. Chino noted that "Everybody's already downloaded our record before it came out anyway, otherwise I'd be kind of feelin' like, 'Man, why [are] we putting [out] all these different versions of the record?' [...] that's the best way we can actually get this song out to the people who already purchased this record, for free basically.

Deftones began work on their fourth album under the working title Lovers.[30] Regarding the album's direction, Cheng commented that "We've proven that we can musically go in any direction we want, and we want to get kind of heavy on this one."[31] Moreno underwent vocal training as a precaution after severely damaging his vocal cords on the band's 2001 summer tour.[31] The band converted their rehearsal space in Sacramento into a fully equipped studio and recorded most of the album there at negligible cost. The band brought in Terry Date to assist with production, and also received input on musical arrangement from Greg Wells on several of the album's tracks. The band later added more material at Studio X in Seattle, WA and at Larrabee Studios in West Hollywood, CA. Overall the album took twelve months and cost roughly $2.5 million to produce with the band being fined by Maverick for missing deadlines.[32] Deftones is the Deftones self-titled fourth album. ...

The self-titled Deftones was released on May 20, 2003. Deftones entered the Billboard 200 at number two and sold 167,000 copies in its first week.[22] The album remained in the Billboard top 100 for nine weeks, supported by the first single, "Minerva".[33] The band shot a video for their second single, "Hexagram", with fans watching the band play the song in an indoor skatepark in Simi Valley, California. The band made a video for the track "Bloody Cape", but it was never released for play on television. The video was only made available on the band's official website for one day.

Reviews were mainly positive, praising the band for the heavy album's progression and originality in the midst of declining creativity in contemporary metal.[34] Moreno was quoted as saying, "It's all on record. We told motherfuckers not to lump us in with nu metal because when those bands go down we aren't going to be with them."[32] In reviewing Deftones, Stephen Thomas Erlewine writes that "Hexagram", the album's opener, "hits hard — harder than they ever have, revealing how mushy Staind is, or how toothless Linkin Park is," but also goes on to say that the album "sticks a little too close to familiar territory" and "feels like a disappointment."[35] The Onion's A.V.

Rather than work with longtime producer Terry Date, Deftones decided to record with Bob Ezrin. Cunningham says that while the group enjoyed working with Date, "At this point, we just needed to change things up [...] And this is definitely a different style. Working with him [Ezrin] is just putting us fucking upside down. He's cracking the whip."[38] After recording all the instrumentals for the record, Chino Moreno decided to record his vocals separately.

Eros: 2008-present

Deftones are currently in the studio writing and recording their next release, which will be the first album produced entirely by the band. Eros will be their sixth studio album. As of December 7, 2007, six to eight songs are finished and the album is expected to be released in the fall of 2008. In an interview on Melodic.net, Chino stated: "The last two records have been a lot more impersonal...Once we started using computers, it got super impersonal. Everybody would come in separately and do their parts. We looked back to our sophomore album, where we wrote and recorded it and mixed it in four months, and that's still one of my favorite records we've ever done. We want to work in that way [again], all together in one room, and we just play everything until it's memorized, and then we'll record it live. That's what we did with our first records.".[39] Moreno stated that this album would be more up-tempo (as far as the drumming), going on to say that the past couple of albums have been more mid-tempo; that Abe Cunningham has been playing faster. He also referred to the album as being "snappy". Moreno stated in an interview that the process for this album would be more raw and simplified after dissatisfaction with the long and "pieced-together" experience of recording Saturday Night Wrist.[40] is the 341st day of the year (342nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...


In a recent article in Kerrang! magazine, Chino stated: "The songs are definitely weird, which is a breath of fresh air to me. I haven't been playing guitar on these new songs so Steph [Carpenter] has taken up the helm and that's worked out really well. He's been very creative has been writing very weird, melodic stuff. That's great because I want the album to be as weird as we can possibly make it without completely alienating people. If I had to compare it to any of our records, then I think it probably reminds me of White Pony the most. There's a lot of atmosphere and a lot of soundscaping. I couldn't feel better about it at the moment. In fact, I'd say that our working relationship is better than it's ever been before. As a result, everything has improved, our friendships and our lives. We're all really happy now. Over the last few years, a lot of the band members have had a few problems–divorces, money problems, life–and it has just been an unhappy time. We've all come out of that now. I hate to talk like its all rainbows and sunshine over here, but it is!...Having rediscovered our friendships, everything became worthwhile again. Every day just gets better and better now."[41]


On January 14th, Chino posted an instrumental electronic beat that sounds similar to Team Sleep called "You've Seen The Butcher", on the Deftones' MySpace page, and announced in a bulletin that the album would be called Eros (the Greek word for "love"). Team Sleep is an experimental rock group led by singer/guitarist Chino Moreno, better known for fronting the Sacramento-based band Deftones. ...

Moreno's poetic lyrics—described by a TIME magazine critic as "suggesting emotions rather than announcing them"[42] —are often evocative, yet sparse enough to allow for multiple interpretations. Moreno has cited Morrissey, Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, The Cure's Robert Smith, Bad Brains' H.R., and Depeche Mode's David Gahan among his favorite singers, and, beyond an occasional similarity in vocal technique, these singers' sweeping sense of drama is often evident in Moreno's vocals.

Although the group was more heavy metal-based early on, the early '90s saw the Deftones expand their sound even further, obviously inspired by such groundbreakers as Tool, Rage Against the Machine, and Faith No More.
The album was another success (debuting at number three on the album charts), and it showed the quintet unafraid to experiment with their sound, as Moreno let such '80s modern rock influences as the Cure and the Smiths seep into the Deftones' sound.
Eagerly anticipated by both fans and critics alike, The Deftones dropped in May 2003 and spawned the single "Minerva." The quintet then embarked on the Summer Sanitarium shed tour with heavyweights Metallica and Linkin Park.
