Guns. Razors. Knives.

February 23, 2010

Don’t worry folks. I’m still alive. I’ve just been busy.

But, I come bearing amazing news.

The Deftones have released a new song. AND IT’S AWESOME!

We first heard a live clip of “Rocket Skates” last week. But yesterday, the band put up a video with the studio version of the song along with lyrics. Their new album, Diamond Eyes, will be released May 18.

The Deftones are often lumped in with other “Nu-Metal” bands from the 90s. Doing so is a major injustice to this band. They have been releasing great music since 1995. Their heavy music, mixed with Chino Moreno’s vocals create a very original and unmistakable sound. The Deftones have released two platinum records and two gold records, so if you haven’t heard of them, you’re definitely in the minority. Fans of all genres seem to gravitate toward this band.

On a more somber note, Diamond Eyes will mark the band’s first release since their bassist Chi Cheng was in a car accident and slipped into a “minimally conscious” state November 4, 2008. You can read more about that and donate here.

So here is “Rocket Skates.” There is some adult language in the song. So kiddies, put up those earmuffs.
