I don't see where this sounds like Deftones at all. Only Circa Survive sound is the guitar at the very end. Circa used to end some of their songs with that sound.
The list doesn't explicitly say it sounds like Deftones, though I feel the singer does draw influence from the way Chino draws out his melodies, so some vocal patterns do call Deftones to mind. But that could be just me.
More to the point, these 'Recommended If You Likes' aren't always written to say that "this band sounds like these bands" but more of a "Fans of these bands will probably find some value in this song/band"
