Well, it’s that time of the year again, the time for love, passion, flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, romance and cupids. Oh, and also a lot of pregnancies. True story: more people are born 8-9 months after Valentine’s Day than any other time of the year. That’s a lot of fornication going on! So, in an effort to aid all you horny little buggers out there, I’ve put together a list of my ten songs to get your loins aquiver!
Wake Up Fest, a series of concerts that are taking place all over the world, are being scheduled throughout 2011 with one goal in mind: To help pay for the medical bills of Deftone’s bassist Chi Cheng. Cheng is currently in a semi-conscious state following a severe car accident in late 2008 and his family have been working tirelessly to create benefit shows and fundraisers to ensure that Cheng gets the best care and that research can be done to find a way to wake him up. Complete show listings and locations can be found here.
When I look back on this past year in music I took into consideration the albums I was looking forward to, the albums I didn’t see coming, and the songs that got stuck in my head all day. It’d really hard to do a retrospective but after serious consideration I finally got the the list right. Enjoy.
Deftones have released a video for ‘You’ve Seen The Butcher’, the newest single off their latest album ‘Diamond Eyes’ (review here). It’s a beautifully shot video with some hot girls that are scantily clad getting showered with blood. What more could you ask for? Check it out below and let us know what you think?
So, it’s the end of another month and I bring you yet another Retro Review. Now, in the comments of the last review, I got two requests, both for metal albums (don’t worry guys, I’ve got them saved and will come to them later). However, to try and introduce some diversity into the music section, I wanted to do a review for something that might not be exactly expected. So, with this review, I’m doing something completely out of the style of music that I usually review in the Bloody-Disgusting music section: Portishead’s debut album, ‘Dummy’.
Deftones‘ latest album Diamond Eyes is quite the ride. Strangely seductive, vibrantly violent and brilliantly brutal, Deftones forged a soundscape with album number six that’s as explosive as it is entrancing. Over the course of the record’s eleven songs, vocalist Chino Moreno guides those “experiencing” Diamond Eyes through a wildly warped world before shuttling them off into outer space. The journey feels damn good too, just as good, if not better, then it did when they launched listeners out of this universe on White Pony.
When Bloody-Disgusting.com’s Rick Florino (www.bookofdolor.com) sat down with Deftones’ Chino Moreno we had two crucial questions though…
What movies scare Chino and what was his favorite memory from the legendary “War of the Gargantuas” Tour when Deftones shared the stage with Pantera and White Zombie. Here’s what he had to say… READ MORE
Deftones started playing music way back in 1988 and released their first album in 1995. Since their start they have always wanted to be different from the rest and make awesome music. I feel this is a true statement. Yesterday their sixth full length “Diamond Eyes” has finally come out and I couldn’t be more impressed. Heavy, fierce, atmospheric and dare I say pretty? Read past the break for my review!
Far will be releasing their 1st album in 12 years on May 25th entitled ‘At Night We Live’. But according to an interview with SPIN Magazine, the title track At Night We Live was inspired by Deftones bassist Chi Cheng. For those who don’t know, back in November of 2008 Chi got into a car accident that put him in the hospital, and he has been there ever since.
Knoxville, Tennessee’s Whitechapel have just released the new track ‘The Darkest Day of Man,’ off of the bands 3rd full-length release (second for Metal Blade), A New Era of Corruption due out June 8th. “The first single we have released from the new album A New Era of Corruption is titled ‘The Darkest Day of Man’ (which can be heard HERE). We played it live during our overseas touring at the beginning of this year in Australia and the UK and were getting a great response from the crowd for it. I feel this song perfectly demonstrates how we have progressed as a band musically and in our song writing, but have not stepped away from our signature Whitechapel sound,” comments guitarist and founding member Alex Wade.
“Diamond Eyes” doesn’t come out until May 17th but until then enjoy the video for their first single “Rocket Skates”
