Apr 19, 2013Deftones has always been difficult to explain or categorize a specific musical genre. But despite not feeling comfortable in that place have been one of the best capitalized groups of Nu Metal's move in the early 90s.
His first two jobs Adrenaline (1995) and Around the Fur (1997) were used to be known in his own country, but his third plate White Pony (2000) Deftones achievement acquire a name worldwide earning the respect of critics and managing to sound massively.
"Change (In the House of Flies)" and "Digital Bath" were the themes emblematic of White Pony. Few others like the quiet "Teenager" surprised by the change from the style of the band.'s Also worth noting the presence Maynard James Keenan of Tool singer who develops nicely in the duet performed with Chino Moreno on "Passenger".
Despite denying the label "key band of Nu Metal", thanks to this current Deftones astronomically increased his popularity and managed to stay through the years mutated into their sound.
In conclusion: White Pony is one of the best albums of Deftones, its evolution in sound, creativity and complexity. not listen, would be an offense to the music.… Expand
