Archival Thursdays: Deftones - Saturday Night Wrist (2006)

I know what your thinking, "another Deftones Archival Thursday?!" Well, yes! And that's because I went to see them perform a kick ass show last night at The Fillmore here in Miami Beach (will post pics/review soon). 'Saturday Night Wrist' was their first album after a 3-year break/hiatus that almost led to the bands demise. The wonderful opening track "Hole in the earth", was written by lead singer Chino Moreno when the band could not find themselves as a whole nor could agree on a direction for 'Saturday Night Wrist', which in turn created a beautiful release. The tracks "Kimdracula", "Beware" and "Cherry waves" are constantly being played in the great soundtrack of my life, and the rest of the album stays solid throughout the course.

I purchased this release in 2006 from eBay since Deftones vinyl is almost impossible to come across in local shops.
