Deftones Guitarist Changes His Tune About Gore Song
And he says he's not the first member of the band to have felt bad about a recording project while it was underway. Carpenter recently moved to shut down rumours of a fall-out after having said he originally didn't want to play on Gore, followed by frontman Chino Moreno describing the guitarist as "the odd man out" during sessions.
Carpenter tells Kerrang: "I went eight records before I had any kind of issue. I've already lived through two records in the past where somebody else didn't enjoy them at all. For me to finally hit a wall, I think I lasted pretty good, because I've seen other people already buckle."
He adds: "When I gave the interview, I was just saying that, in the beginning, I wasn't too inspired by what was going on. The emotions tied to that statement was really all around one song called Hearts/Wires.
"Once I got over my BS about it and dug into it, I found a place in it where I like it and have fun. It ended up one I liked the most." Read more here.
