Product Description

Product Description

Certified Gold by the RIAA (7/99).

Call it what you want: emo-core, alternative, sneaker metal...the Deftones seemed the most unlikely quartet to come out on Madonna's Maverick Records. The music is agro, abrasive, and damn near primal from the disc's first few seconds. Tool-like whisperings of front-man Chino Moreno can bring the mood from disconcerting to downright dangerous in seconds. Heavy, chunky guitar riffs, mad raps, and testy tempo changes make this a must-have for fans of whisper-to-a-primal-scream alterna-rock. Killer tracks: "Bored" and "7 Words". --Denise Sheppard

A hardcore-sounding metal-punk-hip hop hybrid, I can't fathom why the Deftones were initially lumped together with bands like Korn (who call them their "brother band") - the 'tones are far more intense and original. And they are anything but generic trend-hopping rap-metal. The band has been doing this since 1989! I don't see why any fan of hardcore music would dislike the Deftones, especially Adrenaline. It's a hard-edged, raw, and just plain insane piece of music. Rage comes crashing through the speakers for the entire 40+ minutes of the disc. It doesn't sound fake or forced at all. You may not be able to understand exactly what Chino is screaming about, but you can tell he's pissed off. This is the kind of stuff metal lovers dream about. There is some subtlety here, however. The band does several softer, more haunting sections in the songs to contrast with the aggression. The Deftones have a truly terrifying vocalist in Chino Moreno, who goes from unsettling whispers to horrifying screams. (Dear God, does he scream. One of these days he's going to wake up with his lungs on the pillow next to him.) Guitarist Stephen Carpenter offers simple, but direct and scathing riffs, that perfectly match this style.
The brutal songs on Adrenaline are more than the best example of their style. It shoves pure rage into your face with its obnoxious and sometimes unintelligible lyrics and attitude, and is one of the most positively convincing 90s metal albums. After the first couple of listens, it sounded to me like extremely unvaried guitar riffing, weak melody and talentless screaming. But after awhile, Adrenaline opens up and reveals its strengths as a very heavy, direct, and emotionally powerful offering.

The Deftones are one of the pioneers of the nu-metal age. Brought to the mainstream with the help of Korn (although I'm sure they did not really need any help as talented as this band is) the Deftones unleashed the album "Adrenaline". In my mind the second most influential and important album to all those aspiring crossover artists. The first being Korn's s/t.
I call the Deftones' music emo-core with more of a harder edge. The music is extremely heavy featuring thick and exquisite guitar work by Stephen, blood-throbbing bass by Chi, accentuated by steady drumwork courtesy of Abe, creating a fusillade of tempo-laden music that can be aggressive or just plain soothing. The musicians' talent is very evident on this album and Stephen, Chi, and Abe just flow so well together creating music that is special.
Once again, it's not the music itself that makes this band so great but it is the songwriting and vocal talents of Chino Moreno that gives the Deftones that special edge. Chino is by far one of the most talented vocalists out there (also my favorite vocalist alongside Brian Armer-formerly of Juice) whose ability to switch from melodic crooning, to rap-singing, and hardcore screaming is nothing short of brilliant. "Adrenaline" showcases all of Chino's vocal abilities and then some, although the lyrics leave something to be desired.
The album is a complete masterpiece from start to finish featuring such songs as "Bored" and "Firal" which exhibits their softer side. For pure, adulterated, aggression, check out "7 Words". "Minus Blindfold" and "One Weak" showcase the best of both worlds while "Engine No. 9" and "Root" feature that rap-metal vibe.

When I first heard of the Def Tones, I thought they were a punk band. They were touring on the Vans Warp Tour and most of the other bands on that tour had a punk sound. And then I heard "engine no.9"....oh God....what a song. That was the day that my life changed forever. This band blew away every other sound I had heard up to that point. Simply put, this album is amazing.
THE GOOD: 1) HARDCORE. Every track goes for broke and hits you in the face like you where a baseball and the album was Barry Bonds looking for # 72! This band holds nothing back and I am glad for that. Finally, a debue from a band that knows excately who they are and what they want to do musically.
2) LEAD SINGER. Just like in INCUBUS, this band is made its powerful lead singer. It is his emotions and his pain that you feel in each track, however the band is not lost within his expression either. Nice blend.
THE BAD: 1) THE BAND. Just like Korn had to catch up to J. Davis's vocals, so does this band. The lead singer is just that good. This is not neccessarily a bad thing because it will offer oppurtunities to grow musically, but until that happens it has to be classified a negative.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Wow, only one bad thing to say that is simply amazing for me. Usually I like to give 3 good and 3 bad things about an album, but here I can only find 1 bad and 2 good. To sum it all up, every metal head who calls themselves a metal head has to have this album. This album is a "must have" album.

This Is One Great CD! Chino's words jump out of the speakers and slam you in the face, and everything else just rocks!
Song descriptions:
Bored: Despite what all reviewers say, it's nothing special. Cool guitar, but that's it.
Minus Blindfold: While the position of my favorite song on this CD, formerly occupied by this song, has been taken over by One Weak, this song is still around 4th place (which doesn't even do it justice), and is great. Chino's vocals are near to his best here.
One Weak: The best on this cd. When they sing the chorous the 2nd time, it's like, well, the best vocals on this CD. Everything compliments everything. Perfect.
Skipping to... 7 Words (cause I can't remember the songs before it): Up until that whispery "squeal like a pig" part, where it geats really heavy-metal, it reminds me almost of Incubus' Fungus Amongus (in other words, not too good). But the heavy part is great.
Birthmark: A really heartfeltfully-sung song. Quite beautiful.
Engine No.9: Cool. A great rap-metal song, that you could almost dance to.
Fireal: Kinda creepy, but still really good. The put a lot of work into this one.
Bonus Track: Really cool, with little singing, but nice guitar.
So, this is a great CD, and, (though just barely), is better than White Pony, (or at least heavier), although WP probably has more thoughtful lyrics, and Knife Prty, (which is how it's really spelled), Change, Mini-maggit (on the enhanced version), and Pink Maggit beat the pants off some songs on Adrenaline (not to say that those songs are bad; every song's good on Adrenaline). Go out, get this CD, and be prepared for the heavy-metal\alt-rock experience of your life!!!!!
