(Metal Hammer) Chino Moreno says Deftones reconnected as friends during the studio sessions for lost album Eros - the record they scrapped following the car crash that claimed the life of bassist Chi Cheng.

The singer recalls the "dark days" of when they'd recorded 2003's self-titled work and 2006's Saturday Night Wrist - a time steeped in "excess", "relationship issues" and drug use which almost drove the band apart. But Moreno says they began to rekindle their friendships while writing the ill-fated follow-up.

He tells Matt Pinfield: "We were getting along so well during the Eros sessions. It's like the music actually was even taking a backseat to our friendships. We'd go into the studio, and we were way into playing the board game Risk at the time, so we'd set up this elaborate game of Risk that would last for weeks at a time.

"Terry Date was producing that record and he'd come in and be like, 'C'mon guys let's get to work' and we'd be like, 'One more gam.' We were having so much fun together as friends and reconnecting - then during those sessions is when Chi had his accident." Read more here.
