Enlarge From the soundtrack to DC Comics' "Metal" series.

Deftones’ Chino Moreno Releases New Song “Brief Exchange”


The DC Comics’ Metal series has ended up yielding some unexpected surprises for metalheads, first in the form of a new track by Mastodon’s Brann Dailor and now with another solo endeavor by a member of a well-known band, this time Deftones frontman Chino Moreno.

“Brief Exchange” sounds unequivocally likes a full-on Deftones track! I’m not sure whether Chino wrote it on his own or had help from soundtrack producers Tyler Bates and Mike Elizondo, but either way Deftones fans will find it mighty pleasing; it’s heavy, with a huge, chunky, descending guitar riff in the chorus that gives it an old-school Deftones feel. I guess if you were expecting something more along the lines of Team Sleep you might be disappointed, but the series is called Metal fer chrissakes!
