Deftones Frontman Discusses Band's Community-Style Process (A Top Story)


On Tuesday Deftones Frontman Discusses Band's Community-Style Process was a top rock story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Deftones frontman Chino Moreno says the band's community-style writing process allows all of the members to "shine." The band released their latest album Gore earlier this month and Moreno says they were careful not to put pressure on themselves by outlining what kind of record they wanted to make.

He tells Whiplash (via Blabbermouth): "We don't talk about what we're gonna try to do. We really try to make it an in-the-moment sort of experience, and it seems to be the most exciting way to make records.

"I feel like if we talked too much about it, or planned it out too much, or decided what type of record we were gonna make, we'd sort of be boxing ourselves in to have to stick to that.

"So we kind of just let it happen. We don't write before we get in there. Everything is pretty much written together while we're all in the same room, and for that reason, I feel like it has this sort of live communal kind of feeling to it. Everybody very much shines in the right way." Read more - here.
