Good for them. Got to see them early 2000's when they were still sorta in their prime'ish. The venue they played at is now an Urban Outfitters in SoDoSoPa.

Intro riff is like the happy-go-lucky cousin of the My Own Summer riff.

Oft when I read "deftones" my brain interprets it as "deft ones".  This has always bugged me just a little bit.  Careful when you're merging words together, bands.

Not a fan of Palms, worst elements of Isis and Deftones .

This song is fine .. definitely mixed better than Gore and I'm hoping that there are some gems on this new one . I feel like I've heard some of these vocal melodies before though .. Abe is on fire again though on this...hands down one of the finest current drummers along with Mario Duplantier

^pretty sure Chino only knows like 15 melodies and just recycles them and transposes/slows/speeds them. that's okay tho, he's still good in his niche.

Abe is and always has been great yeah. agree he stood out on this track. and good that Stephen is trying to get more interesting over the last few albums i just dont think it serves their songs well. got some good groovy riffs for the main section of this one tho. not holding out much hope for this album after how Gore hit me (was not into it at all) and something about this track being the last on the album seems a little odd.

video is okay at least. sorta surreal video gameish vibes.

haven't listened to any of the stuff they've put out since the self-titled record (not sure why - is it good/bad?) but I still bump white pony and around the fur every now and again.

anyway this new track is pretty decent. guitar tone and riffs seem very CKY-esque, although maybe not quite as intricate. love that boss oc-2/3 sound.

It's their weakest effort. Maybe you should give a go to ''Koi No Yokan'' and ''Saturday Night Wrist''.

I had a giant crush on Chino in high school, he's still gorgeous (love my burly brown bears, am married to one ;P)

Oh the music, uh, cool I guess.

Probably my favourite album of theirs. Super heavy. Only real misstep was Saturday Night Wrist.

I agree, I really love that album. I wish there was more. Though I do wish there were some heavier parts, ISIS always had the ability to get super dark.

I always thought that was part of the point of their name, no?

SNW seemed like a bunch of songs pooled together rather than an album. I know the band was in really bad shape at that point and Im pretty sure they put that together without all being together at all in a studio. Gore for me was their worst effort, so Im hoping Ohms is a return to form. KNY is absolutely perfect IMO.

New song is fine. I've kept up with them (fan since Around the Fur) and I've kept up with them but I think at this point I've just outgrown them (probably a long time ago). The last one I truly enjoyed was the self-titled and that's because I was more into they style when it came out so it stayed in rotation for a while, I actually got to know it as much as the previous ones. It's solid, quite under-appreciated for some reason (likely the curse of being a follow-up to the fan favorite White Pony). When Saturday Night Wrists came out I don't think I picked it up right away (probably didn't care for the single "Hole in the Earth" and still don't) but a friend eventually persuaded me to check it out. And I thought the cover art was great so what the hell. Anyway, it was decent but I didn't spend a whole lot of time with it (tried played it a week or so ago when Ohms was announced and it was tough getting through that awful first song). I did think Diamond Eyes and Koi no yokan were quite good and superior to SNW, and played them a good bit when they came out. They each contained a few songs with fantastic riffs. But Gore was a disappointment and I probably only spun it 2 or 3 times. It's probably me, but this might be the first album of theirs I don't bother listening to. I've changed, and they really haven't.

@sidewinder

that post is exactly how I feel and my experience of their albums, (I’m just too lazy to write it!) Absolutely spot on.
