In November 2008, Deftones bassist Chi Cheng was involved in a serious car accident that left him in a coma and ultimately took his life in April of 2013. One of the side effects of this tragedy was that the band’s album, which has a working title of Eros, never got to see the light of day. However, as time has progressed, the band has hinted that Eros may in fact be released at some time, although nothing has been guaranteed.
Now, a video that purports to feature video and in-studio images during the Eros recording sessions has found its way online and can be seen below. The music featured is all instrumental but sounds fantastic. It seems like this could’ve been a truly incredible entry into the band’s already stellar career.
