New Music: Deftones > Diamond Eyes

Song: Diamond Eyes
Artist: Deftones
Album: Diamond Eyes
Label: Warner Music
Genre: Alternative Rock / Alternative Metal
Notes: First single from 6th LP
Analysis: The title track from Deftones’ upcoming Diamond Eyes falls pretty low on the band’s heavy spectrum (which is still pretty heavy for most bands), but I’ve always found some of their best songs to be their most melodic. ‘Diamond Eyes’ maximizes their capabilities to make a song soar, much like the owl on their newly unveiled cover art. Chino Moreno does great, showing off his profound singing voice and keeping the throat-bursting screams to a minimum for this one. As the official single, and paired with the buzz track ‘Rocket Skates‘, Deftones fans should sleep well knowing that Diamond Eyes is looking very satisfying.
