Koi No Yokan (Explicit)
Released: Nov 2012
Before its release, gossip abounded that Koi No Yokan would appeal to those fans waiting over a decade for Deftones to make White Pony II. But let's face it, that's never going to happen; no artist in their right mind would willingly return to the bummer vibes required to make such a brutal record. Yet what they do share is in the composition department, namely that unique blend of shoegaze atmospherics and grandiose prog moves. It's an aesthetic that works most effectively on the album's middle stretch: "Leathers," "Entombed," "Graphic Nature" and "Tempest."
