I’m not shy about my love for Deftones. Their ability to mix many different styles of rock music into one cohesive band is nothing short of awesome, and their upcoming album Koi No Yokan has been on my most anticipated list since I first heard about it. Finally we are getting to hear previews of songs from the album, and I gotta say, it only affirms my excitement. It sounds a lot more post-rock influenced, and I’m completely okay with it. It still shows signs of that signature heaviness that has brought them so much acclaim over the years. They have the ability to pull it off. But don’t take my word for it; listen for yourself over at Amazon while the samples are still available.
UPDATE: They’re no longer available. Sorry!
Koi No Yokan is out November 13th on Warner Bros. Records.
