(TeamRock Radio) Deftones frontman Chino Moreno suggests that his blended sensory approach is a "gift" that has long inspired his songwriting. The singer previously said the band flirted with aesthetic when writing their latest studio effort Gore - describing the music as a "shade of purple" which is reflected in the artwork he chose for the album.

Describing a thought-process which sounds similar to the neurological phenomenon synaesthesia - in which a stimulus in one sense kindles sensation in another, such as 'tasting' a color - Moreno says it's one of his "favorite things" about how his brain works.

He tells TeamRock: "It's just visual. When I see things, I hear music in my head. When I hear things, I see visuals in my head. I've always been able to marry these two things together.

"It just happens - I just see it. That's something that, if you call it a gift, I feel is one of my favorite things about the way my brain works." Read more here.
