In an interview with Artisan News at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards ceremony, Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno gave an update about Eros, the unreleased album that features the last works of bassist Chi Cheng before the terrible auto accident that left him in a coma for over four years before his passing this year in April. The video interview can be seen below.
When asked about the possibility of the album being released, Moreno stated, “It will. I think more so now probably than ever. I actually went back and listened to some of it recently and… you know, I don’t know when or… but I feel it’s a little more appropriate now for us to think about that in the last few years to think about.”
Deftones went on to win the Album of the Year for Koi No Yokan (review) at the ceremony. READ MORE

Last night, at the Revolver Golden Gods awards show, actor Johnny Depp joined shock rocker Marilyn Manson on stage to play guitar on Manson’s cover of Sweet Dreams. You can check out the video below.
Personally, I think the overall sound quality is pretty thin and doesn’t hit nearly as hard as I was hoping it would. Also, Manson sounds pretty terrible. He’s off tune, the screams don’t have the same power that they used to, and he seems to lose breath quite quickly.
Depp will make an appearance on Manson’s upcoming album, Born Villain (in stores May 1st), tackling lead guitar and drums on a cover of Carly Simon‘s You’re So Vain. He will also be appearing in the upcoming Dark Shadows, which is directed by Tim Burton. The movie comes out May 11th. READ MORE
