Deftones Guitarist Changes His Tune About Gore Song

(Classic Rock) Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter has revealed the song that inspired his negative feelings about eighth album Gore is now the one he likes most in the set.

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.
