Album Review: Gore by Deftones

The most anticipated metal album of the year, the stunning new record Gore by Deftones arrived in stores on the 8th April 2016.

If you are already a Deftones fan then there is no doubt in my mind that you have heard Prayer/Triangles before the release date – and what a delight to our ears it is. It’s raw, it’s real and it’s a damn good taster for the rest of the album. This album generally has a much more atmospheric vibe to it in comparison to their previous album Ko Noi Yokan which was a belter from start to finish. Don’t let that phase you though, the aggression, emotion and harmonic, rhythmic content is still there but this time in a much more reflective way.

Even though I’d say the album is much more chilled than previous work, Doomed User (track 3 on the album) is heavy, harmonic and catchy. Not to mention the big beefy bass guitar that pushes it’s way through the distorted, screetching guitars – creating the Deftones tone we all absolutely can’t get enough of.

There may be a slight change in sound in Gore, but there is no disappointment over the quality that Deftones have delivered. The Gods of metal have done it again. A piece of art.
