Overview

Over the past half-decade or so, the Deftones have developed from a run-of-the-mill thrash hybrid into an inexorable force of sorts -- thanks in large part to the charisma, smarts, and energy of front man Chino Mariano, who comes across as a bilingual composite of Korn's Jonathan Davis and Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. He's more melody-driven than most of his peers, a trait he flaunts on "Change (in the House of Flies)" and "Passenger" (which features a cameo from Maynard James Keenan of Tool and A Perfect Circle). The Sacramento combo broaden their palette significantly on WHITE PONY, their third full-length outing, fully incorporating DJ Delgado into the mix of songs and freeing guitarist Stephen Carpenter to explore more far-reaching riffage, as on the tropical stomp "Feiticiera" and the ultra-tense "Knife Party." Mariano, as ever, is pissed off at just about everything and everyone -- as evidenced by the seething "RX Queen" -- but you never get the feeling that he's interested in exploring ugliness for its own sake. It might be stretching things a bit to call the Deftones a sensitive bunch of guys, but WHITE PONY makes you think there are hearts of gold in there somewhere.
