    i went to watch quicksand play in 98. they put on an okay set, not bad, but nothing special, i expected more out of a band i loved so much on CD. The headlining band of the evening was the deftones. After the first song in the deftones set, tons of people walked out. i couldn't bear more than two songs. there was a decent sized group outside of the show, all conversing about how terrible the deftones were.

    that was my only introduction to the deftones. never gave them a second chance, don't think i will

    Finally somebody appreciates these guys..everyone I know hates on them daily and I can never understand why..I will always like Around the Fur, and Adrenaline the most unless this shit is just blowing it all out of the water.

    bug,
    they are pretty notorious for being terrible live. if youve got some way to download stuff, id highly suggest it. get 'passanger'. it was the first song by them i ever heard. prior to that, i always thought they were 'nu metal'. not sure why. they arent though.
    the more i get iinto very obscure hardcore stuff, the more i have a tendency to just shun anything 'major label' because i think it cant posibly be good. thats nonsense though. this album is good. i fucking love 'kittie'. i know ill get shit for bringing them up again, but whatever. their last album was good.
    in any case, this album is good. theres alot of real mellow stuff, that still has an agressive sort of edge. it doesnt come across as cheezy, or whiny, like staind or something, its just good.
    plus, their drummer is amazing.

    two thumbs up.

    i've actually liked them better live than on the recordings... never been that into the records (and haven't heard any of the new one) but i've ended up seeing them 3 times, and loved it every time...

    and MAGNOMAR, you are the reason people hate metal kids... get away from my music...

    death metal is for depressed social outcasts. who prefer to wear black all the time, dye their hair black, paint their nails black etc.
    but then you have th eolder cunts who are plan and simple rough nuts. im talkin about the teenager fags though.
    i ask you this, whats the music value out of someone screaming constantly, about killing and death and so forth. 'idiots music'

    Deftones are the shit. That's like one of the few metal bands that I still listen to (after I got over my high school, angry phase). I haven't heard any of their new joint, so I'm not sure if I should buy it..........?.........

    ive always liked the deftones, heard the new cd yesterday and was impressed, they still have the original sound and dont just fall right into the mainstream like you would have thought they would when bands of their style were getting big. I enjoy them live, they should be a little tighter for how long they've been playing and the venues that they play but it's still usually a good show.
