This had potential but unfortunately as you can hear turned out to be a huge snoozefest. Honestly, this EP has some of the dullest and most boring moments i've heard in metalcore this year.

I'm curious what is good nu metal? Limp Bizkit is the only thing that comes to mind and it doesnt go uphill at any point. Deftones are not in that genre BTW

gonna go press my hand in a george forman grill for doing such a foolish thing.

my thoughts are this is not worth listening to.

Korn, LP, Bizkit, Deftones (White Pony days), Adema, POD are all nu-metal bands. Any band that has a little rapping, some screaming/yelling, a few samples or turntables and just a basic power chord guitar riff are considered nu-metal.

Three songs are listenable and three songs are absolute garbage.

Dude white pony is not nu metal...at. all.. Lumping Deftones with those bands is a DISGRACE...The rapping is characteristic of nu metal with the chuggy riffs, they have moments of that on around the fur at best; and Deftones made that record before nu metal was even rolling...

This is pretty exceptionally bad..... King of Amarillo was marginally hopeful, but they definitely outdid themselves on the other tracks...... -_-

This is nu-metal.

Korn and Deftones largely created and defined nu-metal, but they've hardly associated themselves with the genre since its inception...

What the fuck is that intro

blackmold 11/07/12 05:35 PM

I kinda hated it more than I thought I would. I like "King of Amarillo" but the rest of the tracks are just dull.

Nu metal, but hardly representative of the Deftones' discog.....
