The time has finally come for The Deftones to enlighten us once again. After many delays and most importantly with bassist Chi's condition on their minds, they have just released a free mp3 download on their website of the new single 'Rocket Skates' and have even provided us with the track listing for their new album "Diamond Eyes" which is due to be released on May 18, 2010.
'Rocket Skates' is one hell of a song with an aggressive edge and then some. From the beginning drum rolls of Abe Cunningham to the serious riffs from lead guitarist Stephen Carpenter, this is well produced with a real tight sound. Chino Moreno's voice, as well as his screams sound better than ever! Not sure if it's effects on the vocals but he sounds amazing! I highly recommend listening to it if you haven't already, and be sure to buy the new album once it drops. Support!
