It’s been over two years since Deftones released Diamond Eyes (review), their sixth studio album. While that’s a normal amount of time in between studio albums, that doesn’t mean that impatience can’t rear its ugly head. So, last night at the Troubador in Hollywood, the guys decided to oblige the fans by performing two new songs.
The first song, “Roller Derby”, is a heavy hitter, complete with singer Chino Moreno’s frantic, frenzied wails and vicious screams as well as thick aggressive guitars.
The second track, “Rosemary”, is far more subtle but has a creepy, unsettling atmosphere hovering over it. There are some moments that reminded me of “Change (In The House Of Flies)”.
